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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
