Victoria Beckham is a major source of inspiration for us, and no we're not just talking about her perfectly smoked-out cat eye. She's built a fashion empire, launched genius makeup products in collaboration with Estée Lauder, and somehow finds the time to raise four children. To make a long story short, it's 2017 and we still want to be Posh Spice. Can you really blame us, though?
A new interview with Into The Gloss isn't helping our VB obsession, either. In it, Beckham revealed her entire beauty routine, opening up about the $19 moisturizer she always has with her, the one product she's applied religiously to grow out her pencil-thin '90s eyebrows, and the in-flight habit she swears by for a bright and firm airport complexion. Brb, we're going to go copy everything. Keep scrolling to see our favorite tips and tricks we've learned from Victoria Beckham’s beauty routine.
First up, we have to make mention of the body lotion that Beckham calls her "body secret." This $19 moisturizer (so affordable!) is formulated with essential fatty acids, vitamin E, and pansy to calm irritation. "What I love about it is that it's not particularly expensive and you can find it anywhere," she said. "The formula is so thick and buttery. When I have a tan, I'll mix it with coconut oil—the same you use to cook with—and cover my entire body with it. I suppose some people may not like the greasiness, but it helps me hold on to the color. And by the time I leave the house, I feel as if it's really sunk in. Like my skin's had a good drink. I go through so many of these… I wish they had bigger ones." Other celebs like Julia Roberts, Adele, and Rihanna also love this product, so you know it's something special.
Another product that she religiously applies to her skin belongs to her makeup collection with Estée Lauder. The so-called Morning Aura is an illuminating moisturizer and primer hybrid. She uses it especially before she de-boards an international flight since it makes her skin look luminous and wide-awake in paparazzi photos despite the "horrific" airplane air.
Interestingly enough, this is the specific reason for its development. "Right before I get off the plane, I always use the Morning Aura we developed for my line," she said. "When we started working on it, I said to the team that when I travel to LA and I get off the plane after 12 hours, and there's always tons of paparazzi. So I need a product that's going to hydrate, moisturize, lift, give a glowy, dewy feel about it… something that's going to make me photo-ready. That’s how we came up with Morning Aura."
Beckham has famously said that the airport is her runway since she is so often photographed while coming to and leaving Los Angeles. It only makes sense she would develop a skincare product to cater to her famous post-flight photographs.
That isn't the extent of Beckham's beauty prowess, either. In the same interview, she credits the one and only Latisse for growing her lashes and—get this—eyebrows. "I have Latisse, which I use on my brows as well as my lashes," Beckham shared. "A lot of people outside of America may not have heard of this—it's a prescription product that stimulates hair growth. I'll use a generous amount on my eyebrows as well, and my brows have completely grown back."
This is significant, seeing as she was right on trend throughout the '90s, rocking those infamous stick-thin arches. Currently, however, her brows are back to looking full and brushed-up—just how we like them. "I have gone through phases where I've stopped using it, and I noticed a big difference," she said.
