When Wendy Rowe saw the plans for the rose petal theme of the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 RTW show, she immediately started thinking petal pink for the makeup. “Pink can be quite a difficult color to wear,” she warned. However, her technique was perfect as she made pink fresh and exciting to wear. A rosy complexion, after all, is the perfect fit given the theme of the show. Wendy Rowe has great tips and product recommendations to help you make the most of your pink makeup. Using Burberry’s Warm Glow foundation as a base, she added contour to the model’s faces with the brands new blush, earthy hue. She chose not to use mascara, instead using Burberry’s Spring/Summer 2014 Rose Pink Palette to color the models’ eyes.

To finish the models’ faces, she applied nude tone “French Kiss” to their lips. Moving on to the nail technician, Trish Lomax, the models had their nails painted with one of six limited edition polishes, which were made available online after the show. The polishes matched the bags used in the show and included Rose Pink and Sage Green. “We took inspiration from the English rose and made her cooler and more modern — English rose gone a little bit wrong,” explained hairstylist Neil Moodie. “We didn’t want it to be too perfect.” The key, added Moodie, was to create an “anti-style” that people can execute themselves. The look Moodie wanted for the models’ hair was a “two day old hairstyle”. The looks of the night all melded together perfectly as the show ended with a shower of rose petals making it perfectly exquisite.
