Victoria Beckham's first make-up collection is here. She reveals the inspiration behind her Estée Lauder collaboration line and more with HELLO! Beauty Editor Nadine Baggott…
It’s hard to keep anything a secret in the beauty industry. In an age of social media and over-sharing, the fact that Victoria Beckham wanted to keep her new line of cosmetics under wraps for so long has intrigued and excited even the most sceptical beauty editor. Earlier in the summer, Victoria chose a select few and opened up about her collaboration with Estée Lauder.
"I have been collecting make-up for the last 15 years," she said. "When Estée Lauder approached me I jumped at the chance. With this collection I’m really sharing my beauty secrets. Having worked with the best make-up artists in the world and used so many different products, I’ve learnt lots of little tricks that I’m so excited to share with people."
The mother-of-four revealed that she was excited for her first major foray into the world of beauty. "I like to dream big," she admitted. "Things that I initially thought weren’t going to be possible have become possible. With this make-up collection, we really have created something very new, something unique – there are new formulas, textures and techniques."
For Victoria, it's been her loyal clients and world travels that were the source of inspiration for her debut range.
"Much of the inspiration for the collection came from my customers. I spend a lot of time with them and I think I know how they want to look, how they want to dress," she explained. "I’m so excited that now I can offer them make-up, too. I think my customer is focused on her skin looking beautiful, fresh, young and glowing."
She later added: "And it's also about her celebrating the fact that she’s a woman; so wearing a smoky eye and a glossy lip and feeling sexy; feeling like the best version of herself."
