Makeup artist to the beautiful people Gina Brooke was in Boston this week at Julie Michaud Prettyology to plug a high-end line of spa treatments called Intraceuticals. Given that Brooke has worked with a client you may have heard of — Gisele Bundchen — it made sense to shake her down for a bit of gossip. But Brooke, who is best known for her work with Madonna, Anne Hathaway, and Justin Timberlake, had nothing but sweet things to say about the supermodel, and she swears it’s not just the confidentiality agreement talking.
