7 beauty secrets from Gisele’s makeup artist

Rose-Marie's tip: Sometimes the client knows best

“You see these beautiful women and they’re putting blush [below the cheekbone]. That pulls the cheek down. I learned that from Gisele (here with Rose-Marie, far right). And she’s right because if you do it too low, it pulls your face down. [Ed note: This is bad.] Depending on the face, I try not to go below the nostrils.” READ MORE: Celebrity hair: All the cuts and colours in 2015

Rose-Marie's tip: Use foundation sparingly

"When I use foundation, I don’t like to put too much on skin because it just makes you look older. I’ll work around the nose – when you get old, you always have to put makeup there, this is where you age really badly, colour-wise. A little on the chin and that’s all you need. Top it with a little bit of luminizer to give a glow to the skin, that’s it. Don’t go crazy. Less is more."

Rose-Marie's tip: Go easy on the powder and bronzer too

"Bronzer should really be on an elevated part of the face. If we lie in the sun, where do we get the suntan? [The top of the forehead], a little bit on the bridge of the nose and I balance it by putting a little on the chin and a little bit along the jawline. [When it comes to powder] don’t powder the whole face. Just powder the t-zone. Keep it minimal. Powder should never be on your cheeks because it’s just going to dry this out and you want this area reflecting light. READ MORE: 10 beauty buys to know about this September

Rose-Marie's beauty tip: Photoshop is not real life

"We’re so influenced by perfection that we think we’ve got to have every bit [of our faces] covered. In photography in the magazines we’ve got the re-touchers doing their thing." READ MORE: Could dry shampoo be ruining your hair?

Rose-Marie's beauty tip: Use eyeshadow as contour

"My Seduce eye shadow makes the best contour when it’s done properly. Not orange, no sparkles, it should be a brown colour. It should always be feathered up slightly. It should be right under that cheekbone. This colour works great in eyebrows too because this is actually how hair looks. Hair doesn’t have matte flat greyish-brown colours. You want to look natural? Use something with a little hint of iridescent. It looks like real eyebrows because of the little hit of shimmer."

Rose-Marie's beauty tip: Apply makeup in "ugly" light

“Bathroom lights are yellow so everything looks really pretty. Go into real natural light. Go into 'ugly light.' If you’re makeup looks good in ugly light, then you know you’ve done a good makeup job. That’s the true test." READ MORE: Blake Lively's beauty transformation

Rose-Marie's beauty tip: You don't have to use organic makeup all the time

"When you’re on a set and you’re shooting with big famous photographers and they've got kick-ass light that’s blinding everybody, you got to have makeup that’s giving the same thing right back. I have [other brand name foundations] and I’ll mix it with my [RMS] foundation so it doesn’t dry out after two hours. That’s how I started my brand because I was sick of 18 year-old girls looking like hags after two hours in the light because the makeup’s drying out." READ MORE: 4 beauty trends to try this fall
