Dita Von Teese always puts on red lipstick to feel glamorous.

The burlesque dancer - who is famed for her vintage-inspired wardrobe and made-up look - says she could never leave the house without bright coloured lips as it completes her look.

She said: "I love Tom Ford's Smoke Red and Dior's Diorific Rouge Bingo. Putting on lipstick is so glamorous."

As well as glamorous lipsticks, Dita is a huge fan of designer handbags and shoes.

She said: "90 per cent of my shoes are by Christian Louboutin, including a pair of Marie Antoinette shoes.

"I love structured, retro handbags that look like bags my grandmother would carry."

The 38-year-old star recently revealed she is keen to have own make-up range because she feels not every woman is catered for.

Dita - who was a spokesperson for the MAC AIDS Fund in 2006 and 2007 - said: "I want to do my own make-up line, because I feel like things are missing in the world. I'm constantly trying to mix up colours. Also, I mix my own body make-up. I love the idea of beautiful packaging for cosmetics. I use a lot of vintage powder compacts, and I buy vintage lipstick tubes and transfer lip colours into them. I put my MAC lipstick into my vintage Helena Rubinstein tubes.

"I love the look of matte, velvety lips. Every girl should have a matte red and a matte fuchsia. And that's so hard to find these days."
