Celebrity Makeup Breakdown: Victoria Beckham On The Cover of Allure August 2008


I am really liking Victoria Beckham‘s look on the cover of the latest Allure August issue. The soft, natural makeup and toussled hair – she looks almost like an angel!

Since “Victoria vamps it up a lot”, makeup artist Scott Andrew decided to give her a “bit more natural and unexpected” look for the shoot.

Mix your favorite moisturizer into your foundation for a dewy look. Apply a sheer creamy blush in a rosy color onto the apples of the cheeks.

To create Victoria’s “soft and pretty eyes”, sweep a shimmery beige eyeshadow and rim your eyes with a black pencil . Apply several coats of black mascara on both the top and bottom.

Blend a beige lipstick with a pink lip stain on top for uber soft, kissable lips.

  • I really love her hair in the third photo, the one with all the curls.

    I’m surprised that most of the makeup listed is so inexpensive.

  • Well it seems that PS (Photoshop) has a good job here. Uber perfect skin that any cosmetics can make 🙂 Anyway, her look is great in the cover.
