January 18th 2020 / 0 comment
We challenged the global makeup artist and queen of 'no-makeup makeup' to create an effortless fresh-faced look. She proves why fingers are the best tool we have in our kit
When someone is makeup artist to one of the world's most stylish women you'd expect her to have a kit full of tools, so we were surprised to see Max Factor's Creative Director Wendy Rowe create this whole look with just her fingers.
From working in her eyeliner to applying her eyeshadow, Wendy uses nothing more than her fingers, creating a luxe lived-in look that Wendy calls her signature.
Wendy is used to working under pressure since she frequently does backstage makeup for Fashion Week, but even she admitted feeling nervous when tasked with creating a no-makeup makeup look in just seven minutes - here's how she got on and the products that she used.
