The 42-year-old fashion designer – who has recently partnered with the beauty brand Estée Lauder to launch her VB x Estée Lauder collection – has admitted she has always boasted an extensive cosmetics range, including discontinued cosmetic products, which has led her to create her latest beauty capsule.
Speaking about her passion, the brunette beauty said: “I am someone who really enjoys make-up; I’ve worn make-up or a long, long time and collected it for many years, At my first meeting with Estée Lauder, at my house in LA, I had an entire dining-room table full of products I’ve collected over the years – colours that I have made up, things that have been discontinued – and I went through everything.
“I told them about things I liked, things I didn’t like, and what I couldn’t find in my make-up bag, because I truly believe there is a lot of product that every woman needs that actually isn’t available, whether it’s the right pigments in an eyeshadow or the perfect nude lip.
“I think Estée Lauder were really quite surprised at how much I knew about the subject.”
And the Spice Girls band member has revealed her fascination with beauty stemmed from a young age when she would collect empty perfume bottles and display them in her room.
The fashion mogul – who has sons Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 11, and five-year-old daughter Harper with her husband David Beckham – told Net-A-Porter’s ‘The Edit’: “When I was younger, my mum’s friend Frances used to wear very expensive fragrances, and when she was finished with the bottles, she’d give them to me. They had nothing in them, but I used to put them all out on my dressing table because I loved the way they looked.
“I’ve always loved beauty products; whether it’s rummaging around in my mum’s make-up bag, or going to The Body Shop with my sister on a Saturday afternoon.
“I’m very girly.”
