Victoria Beckham never steps out looking anything less than preened to perfection, and now she’s revealed what it really takes to get her camera-ready. The fashion designer shared a series of behind-the-scenes videos as she prepared to attend an event in Qatar – revealing some of her makeup secrets along the way.
Mum-of-four Victoria had two pros on hand to do her hair and makeup – her long-term stylist Ken Paves, and celebrity makeup artist Wendy Rowe – all while a cameraman filmed the entire process for her YouTube channel.

“Clean, fresh skin and smokey blue eye for tonight’s event,” Victoria captioned a clip as her makeup was applied, showing how Wendy had applied the striking eyeshadow before covering any dark circles under her eyes with concealer.

The 44-year-old’s makeup artist had applied contouring makeup under Victoria’s cheekbones and also on her neck under jawline, which was then artfully blended to create a flawless, sculpted makeup look.

Victoria has a passion for beauty, and has been treating her fans to many of her clever hacks and go-to products both on Instagram and YouTube. Many of the designer’s go-to products are refreshingly affordable, and include the Caudalie Beauty Elixir which costs £12, Weleda Skin Food moisturiser which costs £9, and a £29 translucent powder from Laura Mercier.
Hower, later this year Victoria will launch her own rival products with her very own beauty brand, which she has promised will be cruelty-free, inclusive for all skin tones and available at an “accessible luxury price-point”. It will be Victoria’s second foray into the beauty industry; back in 2016, the former Spice Girl collaborated with makeup giant Estée Lauder where she launched a 14-piece product collection. Her bronzing powders, lipsticks and eyeshadows sold out immediately.
