Victoria Beckham Talked Me Through Her Beauty Routine


Beckham’s fashion choices are well documented, and certain styling tricks—super-long trousers here, a pair of giant shades there—are instantly recognisable. But she has also crafted a signature makeup look over time. You may not have noticed because it’s subtle and timeless, but more often than not, Beckham will be seen with a classic smokey eye, a soft nude lip and strong, defined eyebrows. So what are the exact products in her makeup bag behind this trademark aesthetic? “Every day, I use my Smoky Eye Brick in Signature. I start by using the lightest shade as a primer, then the pink shade all over, then mid-tone brown to contour eyelids and use a dusting along lash line and under my eye for that smokey look,” she tells me. “Then, I take the darkest blue from Smoky Eye Brick in Royal, and I use a super-angled brush to line my lashes and add a small flick. Then, I go over my upper lash line with Satin Kajal Liner in Ash. It goes on super creamy, and sometimes, I use the blender or even my finger to smudge it out. When it sets, it won’t budge all day. Then, lashings of Future Lash Mascara. For a nude lip, it depends on the time of the year. Right now, I am using Bitten Lip Tint along with Lip Definer just around my Cupid’s bow and bottom lip. Then, I apply a touch of Posh Gloss on top and bottom—only in the center—to give the appearance of fuller lips. But on days that I want a little more colour, I love Posh Lipstick in Twist.”

But even Victoria Beckham—surely one of the busiest women in fashion—needs a five-minute face sometimes. So if she has to leave the house in a hurry, what does she turn to? “That’s easy,” she says. “Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturizer in Golden for a foundation-free glow and Bitten Lip Tint in Amour with my #2 Lip Definer for a nude lip. Then, I add Satin Kajal Liner in Cocoa on my lash line. It stays put all day, so I never have to worry. And lastly, Cheeky Posh in Major for a fresh flush.”
