From burlesque show to fashion runway, magazine cover to web video, Dita Von Teese has undergone more strokes of red lipstick, bursts of hair spray, boxes of blue-black hair dye and pats of powder in a month than even the most auspicious drag queen would dream of in a lifetime. But whether she's swirling inside a towering martini glass in Swarovski-covered pasties and stilettos or turning heads on the red carpet, one thing is certain-for this self-styled fashion icon, beauty is an art. Now, for the first time in her career, Dita divulges the beauty secrets that have earned her a frequent spot on international best dressed lists and high-profile fashion show rosters. In "Your Beauty Mark", Dita takes readers through every step of her many signature looks - from her perfectly coiffed hair to her flawless skin and makeup - and turns to experts and friends in the field for authoritative advice. With diet and exercise tips, information on skincare, and tricks for brow shaping, lipstick application, eye shadow and more, Dita empowers readers with the skills, confidence, and inspiration they need to discover their individual beauty expressions. Lavish color photographs and gorgeous step-by-step images make "Your Beauty Mark" the perfect holiday gift for anyone interested in classic style.

Author Information

Dita Von Teese is the brightest star in burlesque since Gypsy Rose Lee. As style icon and muse to artists, designers, and photographers, she has appeared on magazine covers and runways for Jean Paul Gaultier, Moschino, and Giambattista Valli, and is the performer of choice for Marc Jacobs, Christian Louboutin, and Louis Vuitton. Her DIY beauty ethos and entrepreneurial ventures-designing award-winning perfumes, lingerie, gloves, and clothes, and as directing producer on her touring stage extravaganzas-have established her as a role model to women. Her books include the bestseller Burlesque and the Art of the Teese/Fetish and the Art of the Teese and Dita: Stripteese. Dita and her feline, Aleister, live under the gaze of the star-viewing Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.

Review quote

"This is the glamour bible! I've spent a lifetime in and at the makeup chair, and I genuinely found Your Beauty Mark to be among the best beauty manuals ever. Dita makes glamour easy for all!" -- Debi Mazar "See Dita--and you've seen the most completely beautiful woman of this century. Inside this book ... are her secrets." -- Julie Newmar "Dita is an original because she is always inventing. By invention I mean this very gracious girl from small town America discovered her true self. She could never be boring or bored, because she is always inventing, always discovering--yes, through beauty, but most important, through intelligence." -- Christian Louboutin "Dita is the definition of true glamour." -- RuPaul "When you stand next to Dita, it is hard not to wonder how such clarity and delicacy of beauty not only exists but is so consistent, so fresh--like a spring rose that is always blooming...We are all lucky to have some inside information on how to follow her regimen." -- Sharon Stone "Dita has been one of the most iconic and committed Viva Glam spokespersons for the M.A.C AIDS fund. She?s raised millions of dollars for those affected by AIDS. Her act riding a giant M.A.C lipstick during Miami's Art Basel remains a legend in performance art!" -- John Demsey, Group President, The Estee Lauder Companies Inc. "Dita brought out my love for clothes and makeup--and we looked great together, two misfits from the Midwest who like to play dress up... And she gave me Lily, my beautiful cat, and for that I'll always have some love in my heart for that fashionable bitch." -- Marilyn Manson "Dita is for me a perfect Parisian--although she is from the Midwest. Even when she appeared in my shows, I would prefer that she did her own hair and makeup. I love strong personalities, strong characters, and Dita is like a heroine of a novel or a Hollywood movie." -- Jean Paul Gaultier "Nobody understands the transformative power of glamour and style better than Dita. Whether sitting front row at Dior or relaxing in a giant martini glass, Miss Von Teese is always the chic-est girl in the room." -- Simon Doonan
