For a smoother, more fluid application, Dita recommends adding a tiny drop of foundation into the mix. Eye liner is the next item, her cat-like flicks have become one of her trademarks, but Dita is wary of spending too much time on getting them perfect, advising to just complete one eye, walk away for a few minutes, then return to copy it.
