For LOVE Magazine‘s latest issue, they got football star David Beckham as their cover star. Instead of showing off his world-famous physique, he’s sporting green eyeshadow. That side profile suddenly looks so much better.

“I was always that kid in the corner that didn’t really say much. I knew that once I was on the field, I was confident. It was all I ever wanted: to be a professional footballer.” A shy kid in the corner no more, @davidbeckham is our #LOVE20.5 cover star, wearing custom made @dior menswear by @mrkimjones. #LOVE20.5 will be on sale at @doverstreetmarketlondon and @condenastworldwidenews tomorrow. @dior Film by @callthis_number @steve__mackey @douglashartfilm

The publication also teased a video and an article snippet from their cover story wherein David talks about his football career. “Once I was on the field I knew that was what I could do best,” he said.
It seems that men in makeup and gender-bending shoots are really becoming popular as of recent. We also have a feeling that green eyeshadow will be on a lot people’s lids, too. So here are some picks you can go for:
J.Cat Flying Solo Eyeshadow in Poison Envy. Available at Uptown Mall.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Shadow Singles in Emerald. Available on Sephora PH.
NYX Hot Singles Eyeshadow in Dank. Available at SM Mall of Asia.
