Recently we had Rihanna’s Fenty beauty debut which took the world by storm, now we get another coveted makeup range created by the one and only Victoria Beckham. This is the mogul’s second collaboration with makeup giant, Estée Lauder. The first collaboration in September 2016 was her first foray into makeup, and proved to be a mega success with the gorgeous products flying off the shelves.
The new collection by the former Spice Girl takes inspiration from some of Victoria’s favourite cities like London and Miami. The products run the gamut from skin perfectors to fall-themed eyeshadow quads, and from complexion illuminators to matte lipsticks. The mother-of-four will also be bringing back crowd favourites such as the radiance-boosting Morning Aura Illuminating Crème and the Eye Foils.
Before you go out and grab each and every product from this VB x Estée Lauder collection, let the fashion icon herself walk you through her makeup regime.
Posh Beauty Tip 1: Create the perfectly contoured look with texture not colour
Contrary to what you might think, applying bronzer to the hollow of your cheek isn’t the only way to attain a contoured look. As the singer turned fashion mogul showed us in the candid video, you can actually get a more defined and chiselled look by playing with texture.
To get a smooth and flawless base, Posh starts her makeup regime by layering the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask over her face. After which, she took some of her Skin Perfecting Powder and dusted it all over her face, focusing on her jawline. In her own words, “the powder and highlighter go hand in hand to create the perfectly contoured look”.
For that signature Victoria sun kissed look, the designer contoured her face with the Saffron Sun bronzer, starting from the apples of the cheeks dipping into the hollow of the cheeks. She completed her flawless base by applying a dime sized amount of Morning Aura Illuminating Creme on the highest points of her cheeks to enhance her killer cheekbones. The cream doubles as a moisturizer and primer, perfect for those days when you don’t have time to get ready. She also applied the highlighter on the bridge of her nose and the top of her lips to add dimension to her face.
As a finishing touch, Victoria applies the Aura Gloss in Honey over her lips and taps some of the product on the highest points of cheeks for that natural alluring glow.
Posh Beauty Tip 2: Look instantly awake with a vanilla coloured eyeliner
If you always wanted to know how Victoria Beckham runs her own fashion empire and juggles her family life, all while looking fabulous and not the least bit tired – the secret lies in a vanilla coloured eyeliner.
For brighter peepers, she lined her waterline with the vanilla coloured end of the Eye Kajal in Black Saffron Vanille with Sharpener. Using the darker end of the dual-ended eyeliner, she darkened her lashline and waterline with a blending shadow brush. For a more dramatic look, Victoria traced the outside of her eye, creating a subtle wing. She then went in with the same eyeliner and applied the vanilla shade in the corners of her eyes for an added pop.
If you want a more natural and understated look, you can line your eyes with a dark coloured eyeshadow and eyeliner brush. Victoria has a quad that can help you do just that. The Eye Matte Duo in Noir Vanilla comes with a black eyeshadow that will work as an eyeliner and a cream eyeshadow that will be great for the inner corners of the eyes.
Posh Beauty Tip 3: Apply cream blusher on the tip of your nose and your chin
Victoria opened her video with some wise words of wisdom, she said, “Do not be afraid of pink ladies”. The 43-year-old who doesn’t look a day over 30 then went on to apply her Cheek Creme in Blonde Mink blusher on her cheeks, concentrating on her cheekbones. To cop her signature basked in the sun look (even though you really haven’t), Victoria suggests putting some cream blusher on the tip of your nose and your chin. She finished the look by lining her lips with a lipliner lighter than the shade of her lipstick, aptly named, Victoria. She then filled in her lips, starting from the centre of her lips with a mauve Matte Lipstick in Burnished Rose.
Posh Beauty Tip 4: Hold your mascara wand vertically when curling your bottom lashes
If there is one makeup look that Victoria Beckham is best known for, it would be her smudgy sexy smoky eye look. Using her Eye Palette in Blanc Noir Gris Bordeaux palette, she applied a shimmery white pearl shadow (Blanc) over her lids. She then reached for a translucent grey colour (Gris) and placed some of that colour on the back of her hands before picking it up with an eyeshadow brush to build up the colour. With the eyeshadow brush, she layered the grey colour over the pearly white shadow. The fashionista revealed that the same chic grey shade was the eye colour used on the models for her recent ready to wear show.
To define her eyes, she went in with the burgundy shade (Bordeaux) and accentuated the crease of her eyes with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. She made her eyes even more intense by applying a cream eyeliner, Eye Kajal in Black Saffron, before layering it with a loose powder liner, Smudgy Matte Eyeliner in Graphite, on her waterline, blending it out with her fingers. To top it all off, she curled her eyelashes with a mascara, Eye Ink Mascara in Blackest. With the same mascara, she worked the product into her bottom lashes by holding her wand vertically.
The VB x Estée Lauder collection will be available at Sephora Singapore (online) from 29 September 2017 .
