Victoria Beckham’s iconic beauty transformation

by

Victoria Beckham may have started her career as ‘Posh Spice’, but she’s honing it as a world-renowned fashion designer, stylish mum of four and now beauty boss, with the recent launch of Victoria Beckham Beauty. 

Having previously lent her name and passion for makeup to Estée Lauder for a limited edition collection, the 45-year-old has now founded her own clean beauty brand, launching with the sub-category ‘Eyes’, which features eyeshadow palettes, kajal liners and lid lustres.

Known for her undone smokey eye, glowing skin and glossy nude lip, the products and teasers so far imitate Victoria’s current signature look, which has evolved dramatically since the British-born beauty was first brought to our attention in  1994.

Here, we take a look back at some of her best looks to date, from frosted tips to 90s lined lips…


2019

One to usually play it cool, our hearts were warmed by the appearance of copper across VB’s lids. Our guess? It’s her new smokey eye brick in ‘Tweed’ that’s brought on the change of tone.

2018

She’s called out Weleda Skin Food as one of her favourite products before, but VB’s  healthy glow can also be attributed to her talent for picking out the perfect pearlescent highlighter. Here’s hoping there’s one coming soon to her range…

2017

A big fan of navy liner, VB shows us how it’s done by keeping it the colour dramatic on the outer corner, easing off as it hits the centre of her lower lid. 

2017

It’s rare to catch Victoria during the day without her sunglasses on, but this fresh face find gives us a glimpse as to what her everyday look is like. 

2016

VB’s lob was one of our favourites. The collarbone length, textured curls and multi-dimensional colour had us printing off pics to take to the hairdresser.

2016

A laidback updo has become a staple in VB’s hair wardrobe of late, favouring height and loose layers over a slicked back style. 

2015

The Victoria Beckham Beauty Lid Lustre pots are said to be rich in pigment with a crystal-infused high shimmer finish. We can’t help but wonder if this was a tester back in 2015…

2013

The smokey eye has long been a red carpet favourite for Victoria. She tends to go for shimmer finishes over matte whenever working with dark shadows. 

2011

Pregnant with Harper Seven, Victoria and David attended the 2011 Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton looking SO schmick. Victoria’s navy smokey eye and long sleek ponytail almost stole the entire show. 

2008

The smudged liner and glossy lip combination was born. 

2007

Having a pixie cut didn’t stop VB from embracing the low side-sweeping fringe trend that took the mid-00s by storm. 

2001

ghd launched in 2001 and VB took full advantage.

2000

A trace of the brown liner and long hair made a comeback (if for one night only) at the Elle UK Style Awards.

2000

Highlights and height took VB’s iconic cut to the next stage, and soon everyone was playing around with choppy layers and frosted tips. 

1999

Victoria started to ditch the 90s liner in favour of lip gloss as we edged towards the noughties. 

1998

When you meet the love of your life and decide to get matching hair cuts. 

1997

Even when rocking a no-makeup makeup look, VB was hardly ever spotted without lined lips in 1997.  Headbands were also her thing, long  before Blair Waldrof was on the scene.

1997

The 1997 MTV Music Awards called for extensions and cheesy grins. 

1996

Posh Spice was born with a blunt shoulder-length hair cut and all-black wardrobe.
