Victoria, The Vamp


Word is spreading around the blogosphere about Victoria Beckham’s new cover story for the May issue of Vogue Germany. The conversation mostly surrounds a rather racy image of VB straddling a duck-shaped playground figurine. We, of course, are more concerned with a few particularly noteworthy beauty tricks, courtesy of face painter Fulvia Farolfi and manicurist-to-the-stars Tom Bachik. To properly give Posh the dark, seductive quality appropriate for women who scandalize children’s toys, Farolfi went with a squared-off, filled-in black brow, and a smudged onyx liner that she applied close to Beckham’s lash line and pulled out to a flick on the outside corners of her eyes. Heavy helpings of mascara finished off that come-hither stare. Farolfi also administered a bronzed, sculpted cheek that she extended across Beckham’s nose for a sun-kissed glow that offset the potential for any goth implications. As for Bachik and Beckham’s nails, it had to be a creamy black lacquer, but not just any creamy black lacquer—MAC’s blacker-than-black Nocturnelle, which he applied with a few extra layers of top coat for a high-gloss shine. We’re kind of loving everything they’re doing. You?

    If there were a ‘godess’ look to match the namesake siluette, this must be it! The nais are perfection…

    … and tell whih godess we’re talkin’ about pretty clearly.
