On the key to looking fantastic in photos:
It’s all about the light. Always face it, because that’s how you give your face good angles. If you’re outside when the sun is overhead, you’re going to have dark circles from the sun creating shadows on your face. So no outdoor pictures between 12 and two!

On beauty tricks she has picked up over the years:
I had a really horrible pimple on my nose, and a makeup artist gave me Nelsons Acne Gel. I kept putting it on, and my pimple went away. I was like, This is great. It doesn’t burn your skin.

Additional tips:
If you’re wearing smoky eye makeup, a little beige or gold pencil on the inner eye corners will open up the area, but you only want to do it if the shadow is really dark. Otherwise, light pencil makes your eyes look too far apart, like a fish. And I put black mascara on my top and bottom lashes because I have tiny little hamster eyes. With mascara, they seem larger.

Something you may not know about Gisele:
I wear clear Invisalign braces at night. One of my teeth was moving. A photographer was using a side light, which created a shadow across my mouth. I saw a Polaroid, and it looked like I had no tooth! So I went to the dentist and got Invisaligns.

The secret to her killer bod:
I love outdoor sports, like volleyball, and I play them whenever I can. But my secret is that I watch TV maybe twice a year. I’m not a potato sack; I’ve never sat on my couch. If I’m home, I’m cleaning, feeding my dogs, doing stuff. Life is too precious to waste time.

The secret to her famous locks:
I don’t do much. I wash it, but I don’t own a brush. When the ends get frizzy, I apply a little bit of Victoria’s Secret shine serum to them. Then my hair looks done.

On her favorite type of lingerie:
Lace is very sexy, and I like a demi-bra because it gives you a little lift. If you’re wearing lace, you should have small underwear, but they make lacy big ones, too.
