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.

"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 "[Your Beauty Mark] combines stunning imagery with an abundance of information...There's a sincerity to Von Teese's artifice that makes the book both enchanting and relatable...Readers are encouraged to make informed decisions that lead them to their most beautiful selves, inside and out." -- Library Journal "Impeccably groomed burlesque star Dita Von Teese reveals the nitty-gritty secrets of her glamour regime." -- Elle "In Your Beauty Mark, the self-styled star reveals not only a bevy of how-to secrets, but also her contemporary outlook and rare realness on the subject." -- C Magazine
