Was Victoria Beckham's sell-out palette inspired by a special royal moment?

Everyone is talking about Victoria Beckham Beauty. In case you have been living under a rock, the fashion mogul has just dropped her very first makeup line and some pieces have already sold out (and has since been restocked, thank goodness!) The first collection was all about the eyes - it featured four smokey eye palettes, three eye pencils and four lid lustres. One of the palettes known as ''Royal' actually has an extra-special meaning behind its name. Full of stunning dark blue hues, it was inspired by the fashion designer's look for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding back in May 2018. If you remember VB's outfit - she wowed fans in a navy getup from her fashion range, and rocked a gentle navy smoky eye, too. Harper's Bazaar spoke to the co-creator of the range. Sarah Creal, who confirmed: "A smokey eye has been Victoria's mainstay for the past twenty years, and one of the new Victoria Beckham Beauty Smoky Eye Brick eyeshadow palettes, named 'Royal', was inspired by her make-up at the Royal Wedding."

SHOP: Smoky Eye Brick in Royal, £48, Victoria Beckham Beauty

Our favourite has to be the 'Signature' palette though; a collection of soft nudes and chocolatey browns. We've had a try of the Lid Lustres, £28; they are buttery soft and super pigmented. They look great teamed up with the Satin Kajal Liners, £20.

In celebration of the line, the 45-year-old even launched a limited-edition t-shirt.

The packaging for VB's collection is sustainable and all items have been tested by dermatologists. If you wear contact lenses or you suffer from sensitive skin, this makeup won't irritate, or cause a reaction. We can't wait for the next drop - which we have heard will be lip-focused.
