  • Beauty by the Book: Victoria “Posh” Beckham


    Okay, so I have this serious obsession with all things Posh Becks aka Posh Spice, Posh, Victoria Beckham and Beckham’s Wifey. I love her devotion to fashion, her dedication to maintaining her diva and her love of makeup, glamour and over the top decadence in its finest form. I don’t know what my problem is but I love those who indulge to the point of obscenity – maybe that’s why I LOVE Diddy, used to love JLo before Marc Anthony and have a thing for designer labels such as Gucci and Versace – its the Leo in me, I know it.

    So to pay homage to one of my all time favorite style icons, I figured a Posh Becks makeup tutorial was definitely necessary. Check it out beautistas and let your inner bitch shine!
