Victoria Beckham on the Cover of Allure

Victoria Beckham is on the cover of the august issue of Allure magazine, and i have to say, i love it!

not just the fact that it is her (i admit, i was a fan of the Spice Girls when i was in high school), and i love her style, and i think she has an amazing fashion sense, but look at the cover! it's not just her face, it's her arms and her nails, too-- something i haven't seen on an Allure cover in awhile.

inside the mag, Victoria shares that she is an incredibly ordinary girl who runs around the house in jeans and trainers (sneakers), laughs, smiles (!) and is very fun-loving. she has merely created a character, and is nothing like the woman we see out and about in the media.

for her cover look, makeup artist Scott Andrew wanted to create a more unexpected and natural look for the woman who is famous for vamping it up.

he blended a moisturizer with foundation to give her a sheer wash of color, then applied a sheer rosy blush to the apples of her cheeks. by lining her eyes with a black pencil, skimming her eyelids with a metallic beige eyeshadow, and adding black mascara to her lashes, he created soft and pretty eyes. to give Victoria's lips a natural glow, beige lipstick was dotted with a pink lip stain.

want to re-create this look? try Color Rush Eyeshadow in Spun Gold, Exaggerate Full Color Eye Definer in Noir, Mousse Blush in Frozen Cherry, and Lasting Finish Intense Wear Lipstick in Birthday Suit, all by Rimmel London. Lip Bloomer Lip Stain/Plumping Gloss duo in Killer Kiss by Rimmel Underground.
