Make-up application made easy

Rosie Jane Johnston of Rosie Jane CosmeticsShe started with one product: cheek gloss. Between that and the commitment to making the application of make-up easier for women, Rosie Jane Johnston (right) has expanded her extremely successful line of Rosie Jane Cosmetics - which are popular across the world.

Today she tells Indulge how she got her start, what celebs she likes to work with and how women can gain confidence to apply cosmetics beautifully.

Indulge: How did you get your start in the industry?
Rosie Jane: I finished makeup school and had just moved to London. I was working part time in a video shop, a photographer walked in talking about how he was going to be shooting Kylie Minogue next week and I asked him if he needed a makeup artist. Everything started from there.

Indulge: What would you tell a woman who feels like she is hopeless at applying makeup?
Rosie Jane: Not to give up. A lot of brands make it pretty confusing when it comes to choosing products and then applying them. Try starting with some basics…mascara, cream blush, and lip gloss. As your confidence builds, start adding some more products…eyeliner, eye shadow, etc.

Indulge: Is there an easy way for women who wear glasses to apply eye makeup? Rosie Jane: Try doing it with a dual hand mirror. One side magnified the other normal. You can hold the mirror as close as you need to. Do one eye at a time if need be. Also try going for products that are goof proof, like the Rosie Jane Eye Define. You can practically be blind and still make this liner work for you.

Poppy MontgomeryIndulge: Who is your favorite celebrity to work with?
Probably Poppy Montgomery (left) because she's my sister so we always have a lot of fun together.

Indulge: Tell us about the new Eye Define that just came out?
Eyeliner is the hardest cosmetics product to master. Realizing that the most common eyeliner is black, I wanted to add a natural and unique spin on the typical black eyeliner. 'Night' is a slightly shimmery smokey black, so the line it creates is not as harsh. It’s a more natural finish and with the angled tip, it is so easy to use and get a really defined look.

Indulge: What are some tricks for women to look polished but not overdone?
Rosie Jane: When it comes to makeup, to me less is always more. Women should just be defining what they have. Always keep it simple. Normally a good coat of mascara, pink cheek, and flushed lip is all you need to look pulled together and radiant.

Indulge: What is the biggest makeup mistake women make?
Rosie Jane: Not wearing mascara even when they have naturally dark lashes. Or getting all dressed up and only putting lipstick on, with no other makeup. Makeup is just as important to your overall look as the outfit you choose to wear.

Indulge: How can women use makeup to look younger?
Rosie Jane: Keep your lip color light; just try using a natural lip liner and a tinted gloss. Dark colored lipsticks tend to make women look older. Don't wear too much and just keep it simple.

Indulge: Do you have any secret application tips to share with us?
Rosie Jane: Try using a white iridescent eye shadow just in the inner corner of your eyes. It gives an instant pick me up and looks stunning.

Indulge: Anything you would like to add?
Rosie Jane: Just remember makeup is all about layering. Start with less and build from there.
