Victoria Beckham Presents: Smoky Eyes- The Next Generation?


I'm not sure this even qualifies as a smoky eye look, because Victoria Beckham has taken the idea to new and very goth levels. While I wouldn't attempt it on my face (combined with my mass of long dark hair the result would be too scary), I think Posh actually pulls it off, in her own unique and not entirely human way.

Looking at her hair, it's obvious that growing out a pixie cut is a serious pain. I went through the same thing in the 80s, so I can identify. Come to think of it, that was the last time people left the house wearing this kind of eye makeup...

And for the sake of nostalgia and perspective, here's an ad for smoky eye makeup from the April 1971 issue of Mademoiselle magazine:

  1. All I can say is, "Yikes!" What is with that hair? Growing a pixie out is certainly no excuse for that mess. I hope she didn't pay someone to do that to her. As for the eye makeup, I just don't get it. Her reddish brown/black combo doesn't look Goth. It looks sickly. I guess it's my age showing, but I just can't get behind her look.

  2. Maybe that's just a really unflattering picture of Posh. Her hair looks thin and greasy and her face looks gaunt and wan -- and I'm saying this as someone who loves her. I think the mess of a smokey eye is the least of her problems in this particular photo!
