When Victoria Beckham made the announcement that she would be launching her own beauty brand at the start of this year, it came as no surprise to beauty editors and avid followers of VB. After all, Beckham's limited-edition makeup collaborations with beauty giant Estée Lauder in 2016 and 2017 were instant hits thanks to their combination of stylish packaging and luxurious formulations.
What I was surprised about, however, was that when Victoria Beckham Beauty finally did launch in September of this year, it was with a curated collection of eye products swiftly followed by an even tighter edit of lip products. While Victoria has hinted that the brand will eventually expand to a broader selection of beauty categories ("I want to take care of women inside and out, providing them with the must-have items in makeup, skincare, fragrance and wellness that I feel I need in my own life," Beckham said in a press release), it seems that one thing is clear: Makeup is where it's at for VB.
But besides her newly launched eye shadow palettes and lip stains, what does Victoria Beckham actually keep in her makeup bag on a day-to-day basis? Thankfully, much like her skincare routine, VB has shared many an insight into her favorite makeup products over the years, so I have a pretty clear idea.

"I like to contour down my nose," Beckham revealed in a recent YouTube tutorial with makeup artist Lisa Eldridge. "It's very, very easy. The one that I use is this Burberry stick. What I tend to do is I just do a straight line down the front of my nose and then I literally blend it in with my fingers. Then sometimes I'll do a little tiny V under the nose."
Victoria Beckham's trademark look has always involved a lip liner. She described it as part of her go-to look in an interview with Into the Gloss and said she is "obsessed with lip liner" in her makeup tutorial with Lisa Eldridge.
Her current lip liner of choice is, of course, her own Lip Definer (£18). "Anyone who knows me knows I'm obsessed with both lipliner and shades of nude, so it was only natural that for my second collection I'd introduce the lip essentials that I use to create my perfect nude lip look," said Beckham on the launch.
There's one lady that VB relies on for her brows: Anastasia Soare, founder of the cult brow band Anastasia Beverly Hills. "I only ever use Anastasia's brow products because, as I say, she is the eyebrow expert," Beckham has previously revealed. This matte pomade is her product of choice. Apply it using an angled brush for a precise, long-lasting brow shape.
Powder can get a bit of a bad rep for looking cakey, but we spotted one in VB's beauty edit when she shared a backstage snap of her makeup essentials from London Fashion Week. Captioned with "trying to get fresh looking skin," Laura Mercier's cult translucent powder was part of the product lineup. It's so finely milled that it glides onto the skin to blur pores and fine lines while absorbing excess oil without looking chalky.
