Victoria Beckham’s hilarious red carpet skin care prep

And why she’ll be known as Foil Spice from here on out

Beauty Crew Contributor / May 25 2017

Victoria Beckham certainly lives a grand life. She goes to bed next to David Beckham every night. She has four utterly adorable and (apparently) well-behaved kids. And she’s currently in France attending the glamorous 2016 Cannes Film Festival alongside Hollywood’s most stylish talent. 

But how does the 42-year-old former Spice Girl keep her skin looking fresh and luminous despite the busy red carpet schedule? It might seem unconventional, but it involves foil. Yes, foil. And, of course, a luxurious Parisian bed.

Sprawled out elegantly on her Cannes hotel bed in a crisp white dressing gown, Victoria took to Instagram to share (in her true tongue-in-cheek fashion) one of her skin care secrets: Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask

 “Cannes 2016 beauty must! @esteelauder PowerFoil mask! Au Revoir X”

Trust Posh Spice to make the tricky art of wearing a foil sheet mask look comfortable and utterly stylish, huh? The singer-turned-fashion-designer also revealed a number of beauty must-haves on Twitter recently, naming Sarah Chapman 3D Moisture Infusion Masks and This Works No Wrinkles Time Dose Mask among her favourites.

Cherie is somewhat of a digital dinosaur, having kick-started her beauty writing career back in 2009 at PRIMPED alongside industry expert Zoë Foster Blake. Since then, her words have appeared online and on paper for BEAUTYcrew, POPSUGAR, beautyheaven, New Idea, and Fitness First, while her marketing know-how has helped brands such as L'Oréal Paris, The Body Shop, A’kin, and Dr. LeWinn’s add a journalistic flair to their digital content. She is a vocal advocate for (physical) sunscreen, is rather fond of a bold lip, and is utterly terrible at styling hair.
