Dita Von Teese says she needs around 300 products to achieve her glamorous look and couldn't live without any of them.
Dita Von Teese needs hundreds of products to get ready.
The burlesque star has admitted she is such a beauty junkie that she couldn't live without any of the multiple cosmetics and haircare products which she uses to achieve her glamorous retro look.
Asked what her three must-have items are, she giggled: ''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.
However, the sultry star believes make-up can only go so far and the only way to exude sex appeal is to have confidence in yourself.
Dita explained: ''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.''
''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!''
The raven-haired beauty's top tip for feeling good is adorning herself in a tasteful amount of jewels, and she especially loves rubies because they are so ''sensual''.
Dita explained in an interview with French fashion website Pure Trend: ''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.''
