From nails to skincare, former Spice Girl 2Victoria Beckham reveals her beauty secrets.
Ex Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham has been a beauty icon for more than 20 years, she embraces her age and states that
The older I get, the more my skin settles down. I used to have quite bad skin when I was younger and I was constantly covering up spots and things like that. Luckily, I don’t have to worry too much about that anymore. Over time, you learn what works for you.”
To remove makeup she uses face wipes and a cleanser because she thinks it’s important to change up what you use so your skin doesn’t get too used to it.
She also uses a face scrub to stimulate the skin while she showers. She likes to use a few times a week a moisturizing face mask and after she is “polished and cleansed,” she applies a moisturizing face lotion.
If she is not going out, she chooses a tinted moisturized with sunscreen. When she has to go out she says:
My go-to look is a smoky eye, a strong brow, a little bit of contouring—but not too much because I can’t stand that overly contoured look—and I’ll put a nude lip liner on. And then, I have a product called Aura Gloss which is like a lip balm. In the show this season, I put it on the lips and on the top of the cheeks of all the models. I also used it on the eyelids to give it a sort of editorial, wet look. It’s really nourishing, moisturizing, and I like how I can apply my lip liner once I’ve got that on."
She also has a tip to share about contouring:
I have a trick for contouring, actually. I think a lot of people focus on the darker color to get that look. But it’s important to blend it in with a lighter color around the jawline, the nose, the center of the face, underneath the eyes, the top of the cheeks, and the forehead. And not with highlighter! Just with something lighter than the contour shade—I just use my Skin Perfecting Powder. It just mattes everything down and helps blend everything together. Then you can highlight on top of that. Think about it—if you’re shading, like making a painting, you’re not just going to use a dark color, you’re going to use a light color that complements the dark color. It’s like painting a picture."
About her hair, she says that she actually does not do it:
I’m better at doing my own makeup than my own hair, which is why half the time it’s just scraped up or off my face into a bun. I get my hair color done in LA, and then I bring packets of hair color over to the UK and have someone put it on here when I need it. The water is very hard in London and so it’s quite difficult to hang onto a nice, rich color. I use a lot of glosses as well, and the water can absolutely strip it. But then, you go to LA and the sun strips it. I see the same colorist—her name is Lisa—I’ve seen her for years and years. She’s the only person I’ll let near my hair. Now I’m always a dark brunette, but it tends to get lighter on the ends even if I wear a hat, which I try to do throughout the whole summer. For products I use on my own, I like Oribe’s Shampoo and Conditioner because they smell incredible."
She likes a more natural look and uses jojoba oil every day to keep her cuticles hydrated:
Now I just have natural nails. Sometimes, I have the gel polish if I’m in a rush because you don’t have to worry about it drying. For color, I keep it simple—normally a nude. I like my nails to look clean and fresh, make sure the cuticles are looked after.
