Victoria Beckham embraces aging

"I am comfortable with who I am, I accept how I look, I make the best of what I have," Beckham told The Sunday Times. "'I feel, professionally and personally, really accomplished at 49. I consider how I apply my make-up. But I like how it feels being older. I wouldn't want to be 25 again. I was the kind of young woman who would look in the mirror and see what needed to be improved upon, as opposed to what actually looked OK," Posh Spice said.

She continued, "I've always been quite tough on myself, but because of that I've also always strived to be the best version of myself. It's not about changing anything, it's just about looking at the best version of yourself."

Professionally and personally, Beckham feels accomplished at her current age. She no longer strives to change anything about herself but instead emphasizes making the most of what she has. She explained that her perspective on beauty involves highlighting the best version of oneself, rather than altering or transforming one's appearance entirely.

'I think it's about little things!'

These days, the fashion mogul's signature style is largely removed from the Spice Girls' heyday. Through her eponymous fashion label, she is known for elegant silhouettes with lots of sleek, flowing dresses, palazzo pants, and block colors. While Beckham maintains her youthful appearance, she does not aim to reverse the effects of time. "I think it's about little things. Same with make-up, it's about not doing too much, which can be really aging," she said.

"I went to an event recently and people had very 'big' (overfilled) faces. There are some scary options out there." In a candid moment, Beckham revealed she fell victim to the over-plucked eyebrow trend and now draws them on every morning. "Over the years my brows have been so over plucked that if you saw me without it you'd be horrified," she said. "David has never seen me without my brows. They're the first thing I do: wake up, put on the brow."
