Rose Mendez is a professional makeup artist and beauty & fashion expert. She previously worked as a makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics for several years. Additionally, Mendez is the producer and creator of Wide Awake & Dreaming.

Apart from her multiple works, Mendez is also the proud mother of three children including an American actress Alexa Demie. Her daughter is better known for her role in the HBO teen drama Euphoria. Sources say, the makeup artist gave birth to Alexa at a very young age and later raised her single-handedly.

So, it is evident that many people are curious to know who is her children’s biological father. Is Mendez still together with her baby’s dad? If not, who is Rose married to in 2022? Here are the details on Rose’s new husband, parents, and more!

How Old is Rose Mendez? Her Ethnicity and Nationality

As of 2023, her age is 56. She was born on 30th September 1966, in Michoacan, Mexico. Apparently, many online tabloids wrote Rose was born on 25th October 1979, making her age 11 when the makeup artist gave birth to her daughter Alexa in 1990. So, would you believe Rose became the mother at 11? Obviously not, thus, the latter birth detail is completely wrong.

Besides, when Rose was an infant, she immigrated with her family to the United States from Mexico and they settled in Los Angeles. As per sources, the artist as a teenager spent most of her time rolling in the 1980s Hollywood club scene.

As for her nationality, Mendez has dual citizenship Mexican and American. Her ethnicity is Mexican-American.

Who Are Her Parents? Her Family Details

Rose is the daughter of Salvador Mexdez Aguilar (father) and Martha (mother). Both of her parents are from Mexico, while her late dad was born in Tlazazalca, Michoacan De Ocampo.

Sadly, both her father and mom died. But, Rose keeps posting about them on her social media feeds on several occasions like birthdays, mother’s day, and a few more. Back in May 2021, the artist shared a young photo of her mom on the occasion of Mother’s Day. She wrote the caption,

“May beautiful Tia! Happy Mother’s Day in Heaven.”

In addition, Mendez also has a brother named Victor Hugo Mendez.

What is Rose Mendez Doing Now? Details on Her Professional Career

As we mentioned above, Rose made her move to the United States at a very early age and gradually started exploring great opportunities there. She later graduated from University High School, Los Angeles.

As of now, Alexa Demie’s mother is a producer and creator of the company named Wide Awake & Dreaming. She formed the organization in 2009 and has since been a part of it.

Rose Gave Birth To Her Daughter Alexa at 23

As mentioned earlier, Rose is the mother of three grown children. She gave birth to her first child, a daughter Alexa on 11th December 1990, in Los Angeles, CA.

While growing up in the filthy neighborhood of Atwater Village, Demie used to live in the apartment across the street from a meth lab. Being around such a badest environment, it is safe to say, Alexa didn’t have the privilege of a healthy upbringing. She once also recalled her childhood without being a good male figure,

“I didn’t have a great male figure in my life so I think I grew up being a bit hard on men. I wasn’t a cheerleader, I was a bit of a loner in high school.”

Despite her dark early days, Demie has eventually made a name for herself in the entertainment industry. The 31-year-old is an actress with a couple of movies and TV credits under her belt. She landed her first professional role in Ray Donovan in 2016.
