International makeup artist and go-to brand consultant Wendy Rowe chats to us from her yellow-cab morning commute in New York City. How Wendy manages to find time for anything but work we don’t know but one thing’s for sure – we’re feeling rather jealous of all her jet-setting!
Today I’m… working with Victoria’s Secret doing the face and body makeup for their catalogue shoot. I’m also trying to juggle my work as Burberry Beauty’s Creative Consultant and searching for a flat in London!!
I’ve been up since… the early hours, I wanted to get a workout in before I needed to be at work so I had to get up super early. I’ve had my obligatory protein shake too, they always have breakfast at work but that’s the beginning of the end for me!
My working wardrobe is… fashionably comfortable, if that even exists! I wear heels in the studio and I try to avoid wearing white tops especially when body makeup is on the agenda. I have flats in my bag so I can walk home at the end of the day; I live quite close to the studio, but not close enough to wear heels.
I’m always the one with the… vitamins and protein shakes. I’m also known for carrying skincare in abundance, I’m a little obsessed. I travel so much you never know what the environment is going to be like, windy, cold, you just don’t know so I carry something for all weathers.
I’m really looking forward to… seeing the pictures that we are creating, it’s so satisfying to see it all come together – chatting and having a laugh with everyone on set makes the day fun. Lunch is definitely a highlight of my day because it’s the one meal I can eat what I want without feeling guilty.
I couldn’t work without… my iPhone – I would be lost without the calendar. I never know what I’m doing because it changes every minute but if I have my phone I’m covered.
My nine-to-five idol is… MUA Dick Page, I worked with him when I first started out in the beauty industry he was really encouraging. He’s also English which I love, I’m drawn to him, he has a great sense of style.
If I wasn’t here I’d be… Playing tennis, researching for my next job, or just relaxing with friends. I love spending time with friends, it’s so important to me. I don’t get much spare time and it can be quite lonely travelling all the time so when I do have a spare evening it’s what I like to do most.
When I clock off I’ll… review any products sent to me today by Burberry – I have to feedback my comments, say what I like and what I don’t etc. Then I’ll plan what I need to pack for my trip to Texas on Wednesday when I’ll be shooting with British Vogue.
