Not without beauty products, says Dita Von Teese

Los Angeles, May 27 (IANS) Actress-designer Dita Von Teese says she uses lots of beauty and hair care products to achieve her glamorous look and can't live without any of them.

The "Romancing Sara" star revealed that she does everything on her own from make-up to choosing outfits.

"Three? Oh my god, it's more like 300! If you only knew, I have a lot of things that I absolutely can't do without. Even for my shows, I do everything by myself, from make-up to choosing my own outfits," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Teese as saying.

However, the actress believes make-up can only go so far and the only way to exude sex appeal is to have confidence in yourself.

"For me, sex appeal is a very individual thing, it's about finding yourself above all and mostly about having self-confidence. We have to find what suits us and makes us feel good. It's all about being sexy, it's nothing to do with what people think - on the contrary. It's completely psychological," she said.

"I love the process of getting ready, both in terms of hair as well as make-up. With only three things, I'd have a lot of trouble getting ready," she added.

The 40-year-old feels good when she adorns herself with elegant jewels.

"It's true that I like jewellery, but I wear just the right amount to emphasise the statement piece I choose. I like diamonds but my real favourite has always been rubies. At the moment for instance, I'm wearing ruby earring, I love touching them, playing with them, it's a very sensual stone," she said.
