Want to know how supermodel Cara Delevingne always looks so chic and effortlessly cool?  Wendy Rowe, one of Cara’s favorite makeup artists talks to us about how get the nude beauty look that Cara is so famous for.

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

Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz cast real people in his Lanvin Fall 2012 Ad Campaign. The campaign, photographed by Steven Meisel celebrates real beauty and features ordinary people from  ages 18 – 82. “It’s about bringing a sense of reality to fashion to show that the lofty world of high style is not as unattainable as it seems”, said Alber Elbaz, creative director of Lanvin.

82-year-old Jacquie “Tajah” Murdoch, a former Appollo dancer was discovered by casting agent Zan Ludlum on Ari Seth Cohen’s popular street style blog Advanced Style. Others came from street scouting, including 62 year old New Yorker Tziporah Salamon, who has a long resume of disparate jobs: schoolteacher, performer, hostess and shop girl, to name a few. But in April, she finally added model for a high-fashion house to the list.

“Fashion doesn’t look good only on models, it can look good on different people of different ages and different body shapes,” designer Alber Elbaz said. “We didn’t think there would be such a big talk because we just did it and we thought let’s try to work with real people. Let’s do street casting, let’s work with different men and women of different ages and see what comes out of it.”
