Wendy Rowe is an internationally renowned fashion and beauty makeup artist, recognised for her modern luxe aesthetic and her ability to create flawless skin and effortless looks.
Wendy began her career as a graphic designer before making her jump into the makeup industry. She has now been working as a makeup artist for eighteen years and collaborated with some of the world’s most distinguished fashion and beauty companies, including Burberry, Prada, Gucci, Chanel, Hermes and Louis Vuitton, among many others. Wendy is currently Burberry Beauty’s Artistic Consultant and has earned the recognition of photographers and stylists alike.
Thanks to her signature style, Wendy is known for creating makeup trends rather than simply following them. Her editorial work has been featured in all the top publications, including Vogue Worldwide, W, Allure, Porter and i-D, to name just a few. She has been the head makeup artist of fashion weeks shows in Paris, Milan, London and New York on multiple occasions. Wendy has become the go-to makeup artist for Beauty Directors worldwide for advice and quotes.
Having worked with some of the world’s most recognised photographers – Mario Testino, Camilla Akrans and Inez & Vinoodh among others – Wendy’s portfolio contains a number of the most influential images in the beauty industry.
Wendy’s style of work understands that a woman’s goal is to enhance her natural beauty rather than changing who they are. It is this sensibility, together with her effortless approach to beauty, that has made Wendy the first choice among celebrities and supermodels. She has worked with faces such as Sienna Miller, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Cara Delevingne, Naomi Campbell, Suki Waterhouse and Rosie Huntingdon Whitely.
Born in London, Wendy currently splits her time between Europe and New York. Her website, www.wendyrowe.com, showcases her full portfolio and a selection of beauty tips.
“Wendy and I have worked together for over ten years now and it's always such a pleasure to work with her and have her as part of the Burberry family. Wendy has always been able to create a natural and effortless make up look that perfectly reflects the attitude and energy of the Burberry girl. Her understanding and interpretation of both the vision and the brand, coupled with her incredible eye for colour, texture and detail, made her a natural choice to work with on Burberry Beauty.” Christopher Bailey MBE, Chief Creative & Chief Executive Officer of Burberry
“Wendy understands that a shoot is about the end image, which makes my job a lot easier as she always thinks of the makeup as part of the context, not the only focus. She has a similar aesthetic to me and understands a woman's face and body, so we work extremely well together as we both want the models to look beautiful and sexy. And she really understands a photographer's brief, so when I explain what I'm visualising she instantly knows what will work and what doesn't.” Camilla Akrans, photographer
“I love working with Wendy as she makes girls look beautiful, but still keeps them real not plastic!” Anja Rubik, model
