People are obsessed with David Beckham's green eyeshadow on Love's cover: 'Totally up for Beckham in eyeliner'

Thanks to his exhaustive experimentation with just about every hairstyle under the sun, David Beckham’s long been hailed as the poster boy for metrosexuals. Even so, fans weren’t expecting his latest makeover.

The new cover of Love — on sale Tuesday — shows the 43-year-old retired soccer star striking a pose with a generous streak of kelly-green eyeshadow on his lids, which also appear to have been glammed up with eyeliner and mascara. Has someone been poking around in Posh’s makeup bag?


So far, the daring look seems to be earning raves. Turns out a little guyliner and green lids go a long way.

“Totally up for Beckham in eyeliner,” gushed a fan.

“I love love love the eye makeup,” read a comment.

“OMG the eyes,” added a commenter, while another raved, “YES David!!”

We’d expect nothing less from the man who managed to make headbands a jock style staple.
