Head behind the scenes of the British designer’s show to discover in detail the secrets of makeup artist Diane Kendal and hair stylist Duffy.
It was one of the most anticipated shows of this Parisian week: that of Victoria Beckham who paraded for the first time in the capital with her spring-summer 2023 collection. She chose for the occasion the setting of the monastery of the Val-de-Grâce Military Hospital. If the models she has imagined have been hailed by critics, the beauty look has not gone unnoticed either.

No extravagance on the program, but on the contrary a light make-up, easy to appropriate. Backstage, Diane Kendal, who signed the beauty treatment, insisted on the importance of the complexion: “This season, everyone wants to see magnificent skin. This one should be bright to give the girls a really fresh and modern look. Victoria (Beckham) wanted to keep a certain purity. A glowing look that is perfect for summer and whose key element remains the highlighter signed Victoria Beckham Beauty of course. “I first use a serum beforehand, then a moisturizer, the foundation, a touch of concealer and finally the highlighter. It is placed on the cheekbones to give this beautiful sparkling effect.
On the eyes, the make-up artist diverted an oil for the lips in order to sublimate the eyelids and give them a shiny effect. For the lips, the make-up artist bet on two colors. Nude for the lightest complexions and darker for black skin to enhance the natural color of each. And for those who would like to make it their own at home, the central point for Diane Kendal remains taking care of her skin, in particular by getting enough sleep, drinking water and regularly using an exfoliant to cleanse it. She has a preference for the Cell Rejuvenating Power serum in the skincare range designed by Victoria Beckham and Augustinus Bader.

The freshness of nineties
Same effective simplicity on the hair side. For hair stylist Duffy, it’s all about the look. “The inspiration for this show is really the 1990s. So we took the attitude of the girls and took it a step further. For the hair, it really plays out in something stronger. We left some hairstyles as they are. And for others, we tried to make them more masculine, less flexible. We tried to weigh them down, to texturize them with products. The idea was also to start from the characteristics of each model. I’ve been working in this industry for a few years now and I’m starting to get to know them well. This makes it possible to work on the individuality of each one. In her Instagram stories, Victoria Beckham sums up the objective of the hairstyles in this collection: “To celebrate the individuality and uniqueness of each girl, rooted in the freshness of the 1990s”.
