The 42-year-old pop star turned fashion designer seems to only get better with age (as does her genetically blessed husband). We have loved her since she busted onto the scene 20 years ago with ‘Wannabe’ – remember that earworm? These days she’s traded in her brown lipstick and pencil-thin brows for a more natural, refined look we can all take inspiration from. The brunette style icon shared her beauty regime with Vogue.com and we’ve summarised her iconic ‘London’ look:
- Her iconic smoldering eyes take three smokey colours to achieve: a blond cumin window-wiped over the eye socket to create a base, a black nutmeg along her top and bottom lash line, and finally grey amber pencil along her lower waterline. Get all the shades in one with Napoleon Perdis’s Eye Palette Night Play.
- Victoria never breaks the eye and lip rule: when applying colour to your eyes, always keep your lips nude and natural. She used a pale pinky-nude lip liner and lipstick finger tapped onto lips for a worn-in finish. We love Napoleon Perdis Luminous Lip Veil in Café Au Lait, with a built in brush rendering liner redundant.
- You can never wear enough highlighter: a rose-gold powder highlighter applied with a big blending brush to cheekbones, brow bones and lightly over the nose. Then she goes back in with an illuminating cream using her fingers to apply to the bridge of her nose, and again over cheekbones. Start with Napoleon Perdis Blush Patrol for the perfect pink-hued shimmery shade, then use the Napoleon Perdis Light Switch Luminizer Palette to go back in a further highlight your cheekbones.
