Victoria Beckham is known for a lot of things: being part of iconic group Spice Girls, her amazing fashion line and a perfect nose that plenty of fans have always assumed was the result of plastic surgery.

Alas, Victoria, who recently shared a touching photograph of the whole family together at Paris Fashion Week, dispelled all nose job-related rumors while chatting with her friend and celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury in a video for her YouTube channel.

"People have [...] said that I've had a nose job," the 48-year-old Spice Girl said. "Never had a nose job. Always had a nose like this. It is the nose trick."

Lest you think of Victoria, who is "still haunted" by one particular 90s outfit she matched with David in, prone to fibs to safeguard her privacy, think again: the celebrity actually demonstrated the supposed trick while on the air.

Also known as the exclamation trick, the routine is basically a game of contouring. Charlotte herself showed fans how to achieve a similar look by using a highlighter to draw an exclamation point on the subject's face. The result? The famous button nose that Victoria has been known for since her career first kicked off!

After her on-air beauty demonstration with Charlotte, Victoria actually handed the beauty guru the Matte Bronzing Brick from the Victoria Beckham Beauty, a gift that she swore by as the ideal product to contour her nose with.

This isn't the first time that Victoria has gone on the record about plastic surgery. In fact, back in 2017, the celebrity opened up about her decision to have her breast implants removed in 2014.

In a very candid essay that was published back then in British Vogue (opens in new tab) as a letter to her 18-year-old self, Victoria wrote, "I should probably say, don't mess with your boobs. All those years I denied it - stupid. A sign of insecurity. Just celebrate what you've got."

In the note, Victoria went into even more detail about her own beauty standards, getting candid about what she wished she knew while younger. 

"Your complexion will sort itself out (in fact you will launch your own make-up brand); as soon as the Eighties are over, your perm will die down, and your weight will settle itself," she wrote. "At school you eat Super Noodles and boxes of Frosties because they say they are fat free, and you will endure many other silly fad diets (including an addiction to green juices). Instead, learn to embrace your imperfections – that is what I want to tell you. Let your skin breathe; wear less make-up. (And don’t ever let that make-up artist shave your eyebrows! The effects last forever.) You will always be addicted to Elnett hairspray but you will tone it down. Less of the 'Hello! I just got stuck in a wind tunnel,' please.”

We always loved Victoria and will follow her fashion, beauty and self-care advice for a long time to come, but we do have a request for her: will she please reconsider her decision not to help kick off a Spice Girls reunion concert of best hits?
