Have you heard?
Two things – one, Dita’s launching a lipstick with MAC. Two, she’s done an exclusive interview with The Cut where she talks about it, her new book, Your Beauty Mark, and her opinion of so-called, “natural,” makeup.
Obviously a red, the matte, pink-toned red bullet is engraved with her signature; the black tube is emblazoned with the same. This limited edition Dita Von Teese MAC Lipstick launches online on December 9 on maccosmetics.com. Unfortunately, pink-toned reds don’t suit me so I won’t be rushing out to get it BUT I’m sure it will be well-loved.
In it, I learned (and you may also) that Dita:
- is naturally blonde
- has a fairly quick routine
- has a go-to that she loves most, but isn’t uncomfortable bare-faced
- feels that, “natural,” makeup is just as much (if not, more) work
And frankly, I wouldn’t disagree with that final note. I don’t tend to contour or highlight, but I think it would take me longer to do a full face of, “natural,” makeup ft. bronzer and higherlighter than it would take me to emulate Dita’s look. No hate on those who choose to do those things – but it is a lot of work to paint your face into what society’s unrealistic definition of, “natural,” is.
