The must-see items from Victoria Beckham’s makeup collection
It’s often overlooked that Victoria Beckham, though assumedly the poshest of the Spices, is delightfully funny. After her Spring/Summer 2017 show at NYFW, she presented her debut makeup collection with Estée Lauder, and interrupted herself to question whether she could say her go-to makeup was sexy. “I’m not saying that I’m sexy,” she laughed.
“I’m not a model. I am a woman who has four children,” Beckham told us. “I’m a working mom and I am hoping that women all around the world can really relate to me.”
“I’ve worn makeup for as long as I can remember,” she continued. “I remember going to school when I was really really young, and my mom getting her lipstick and literally putting it on my cheeks and saying, ‘You look a bit peaky.’ I don’t think I ever go out without makeup on, I like to celebrate being a woman. It is definitely a huge part of who I am, and who my customer is as well.”

“I’m super excited about this Morning Aura,” says Beckham. “I said to Sarah [Creal, global partnership initiatives at Estée] when we started to work together, ‘Though I know this is a makeup collection and not skincare at this stage, when I get on a flight from London, sit on the plane for 11 hours, then I get off and I am photographed, I want something that is moisturizing, something that will act as a primer, close the pores, lift and give me that beautiful, youthful glow.’ I mean who doesn’t want that youthful glow? Especially when you’ve been sitting on a flight for so long. They helped me [create] that – because that was asking a lot! – and actually we did it with Morning Aura. This is something that I use underneath and on top of makeup. I’ll put it on my collar bone, on my legs, it’s so yummy.”

“When I travel around the world, I am staying in hotels where the lighting is horrible,” says Beckham. “You can never get a decent mirror in the right lighting. So I said, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if we could create a mirror that had proper makeup lighting around it, and you could travel with that thing, whatever it is?’ Sarah [Creal, global partnership initiatives at Estée] and Richard [Ferretti, global creative director for Estée] came to me, very excited with a light box that comes with a collection of makeup. You can actually take out [the mirror]. It’s battery operated, it’s really light, you can throw it in your suitcase and you have proper makeup lighting.”
