Want to know the secret to fresh, youthful skin? Well, you’re in luck because Wendy Rowe, the A-list makeup artist for Victoria Beckham, has revealed her top five secrets that will make you look years younger. If you loved Beckham’s beauty look at Harry and Meghan’s recent royal wedding, Rowe has her top tips for achieving the same look. And if they’re good enough for Posh Spice, they’re certainly good enough for us. Scroll down to read Rowe’s top tips that you can try out at home.
1. Start fresh.
Before you get started with your beauty routine, Rowe says your skin has to be clean. Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar, the makeup artist to the stars said, “Prep is massive. I cleanse and then tone with the Decléor Aurabsolu Refreshing Mist for a nice feeling of freshness — and then I can check out if anything’s wrong and what I need to fix.”
In March, Beckham announced she was starting her own skincare line. As someone who has spoken out about her past acne issues, we can’t wait to see what’s to come — especially since she revealed her husband David often pinches her beauty products. Where to buy it: Decléor Aurabsolu Refreshing Mist ($22.15, Amazon).
2. Plump up those lips.
Posh by name, posh by nature! Rowe revealed that Victoria loves a flat matte nude, but lately she’s been overlining her lips to give herself a fuller pout. “We use Burberry Lip Colour Contour [to create] a fuller lip in the middle, which gives you the same polished feeling of a lipstick but without looking like you’ve got lipstick on.”
3. Add an arch to your brows.
Back in the day, the former Spice Girl opted for a straight brow. But Rowe says that now she goes for a subtle arch, which not only opens up her eyes, but also softens her features and takes years off her face.
4. Make it fabulous with the right foundation.
No cake face here! Beckham used to be a big fan of contouring, but for younger looking skin, Rowe says it’s all about keeping it fresh and light. “Victoria has great skin, and I use my Burberry favorites: Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base ($122.47, Amazon) and Burberry Cashmere Concealer ($46.77, Amazon).”
5. Get that Spice Girls smoky eye.

Posh Spice certainly loves a smoky eye, but lately, she’s been toning it down with a more sophisticated version. “We do dark kohl around the base of the lash [line], keeping the eyelid quite open and then do several coats of mascara for super long, voluminous lashes,” Rowe says. “I also use a beige eyeliner to widen the eye.”
