Take inspiration from the burlesque beauty this Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day Muse: Dita Von Teese

While Dita’s much-talked about new lingerie line Von Follies will only hit Target Australia stores, you can still channel a little “Von Teese” with my round-up of seductive Valentine’s Day makeup, accessories and lingerie.

The Makeup:
Dita is one classy lady when it comes to her makeup. The burlesque star is rarely seen without her trademark cat-eye liner, bold red lips and statement beauty spot. To copy Dita’s signature look head to Mac for their Penultimate Eye Liner and Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation. And when selecting the perfect red lipstick make sure to select from Mac’s Pro Longwear Lipstick range. You’ll want your bold hue to stay on your lips, not on him!

The Lingerie:
While sadly Von Follies won’t be available in US Targets, there’s no reason why you can’t recreate Dita’s famous pin-up costumes! When searching for your Valentine’s Day lingerie, steer clear of the cheesy red heart-covered numbers and seek out something with a little structure in a hardwearing fabric. If you’re going to spend money on something decent you’ll want it to have a life after Valentine’s Day too!

Corsets are the ultimate pin-up statement and can give you that 1950s hourglass shape no matter what body type you have. While Agent Provocateur is hands down the best place to invest in a show stopping brassier, why not try this pocket friendly Asos Corset instead? Pair it with these high-waisted briefs and you’ll have that luxe full-piece corset look for a quarter of the price!

The Accessories:
No burlesque inspired look is complete without a garter, hold-ups and sky-high heels. Grab any one of Victoria’s Secret’s great range of garters and holdups and pair them with your sexiest black heels and a whole lot of attitude.

With your Dita-inspired getup he’ll never know what him!
