Wendy Rowe is an international makeup artist and the Creative Director of Burberry Beauty and has worked with Cara on all her Burberry Campaigns and is known in the industry as the Master of Nudes .  We went behind the scenes with Wendy and her good friend supermodel Anja Rubik to find out why she feels nude makeup can work for everyone

“Nudes are not just about browns – think greys, taupes, mauves, pinks, golds… it’s all about finding the right tonal nude shades that work for your skin tone and making the skin look alive by putting colour into the cheeks and lips. The secret to nudes is about using different shades and textures, blending everything softly so there are no hard lines – it’s more realistic than hard shapes or lines, and it suits everyone”

Every month Wendy shares her round-up of the season’s beauty must-haves on her beauty blog WendyRowe.Com.  For all the latest news follow Wendy on Twitter @wendyrowemakeup and on Instagram @wendyrowe
