Top of our excitement list today is the fact that makeup artist and Grazia favourite Wendy Rowe is launching her much anticipated website this week, www.wendyrowe.com. Yep, tomorrow the site will go live and we are, quite literally, over the moon at the sheer thought of it!
Now in case you are wondering who, what, when, where and why, we’ll give you a little intro… Wendy Rowe is an international makeup icon as has been for the past 18 years. She is renowned for her modern luxe aesthetic and attention to detail, creating the effortlessly cool look that women aspire to look like. She started her career in graphic design before moving into makeup as has worked with the likes of Mario Testino, Patrick Demarchelier and Hedi Slimane in her time. Serious stuff! Add to that the fact that she is Burberry Beauty’s Artistic Consultant and you’ve got one hot lady!
We were interested to hear that Ms. Rowe still gets so inspired after so many years. “Working with makeup every day of my life comes with its advantages – I am one of the first to try the latest products and I work with some of the world’s most renowned photographers, designers and models,” she said. “I meet incredibly inspiring people and regularly travel to exciting places. Travelling has given me a tremendous insight, enabling me to understand different environment and how this affects makeup needs and product performance.” And now you can understand why we are so darn excited for the website. “I'm very visual and I love things that catch my eye. I wanted to create a scrapbook for my ideas and thoughts because you may as well look at something inspiring whilst learning the insider secrets of chic, modern and cool beauty.” Spot on, Wendy.
The site will be a hub of all things beauty – behind-the-scenes videos, make up looks, visuals from Wendy’s shoots and more. We’re excited to see snippets of her backstage at the Burberry shows (always a Grazia favourite) and her top makeup tips. There will even be interviews with other industry pro’s as well as fitness and treatment reviews. Every box ticked. Get excited people, the countdown is on…
