While the unemployment rate in the U.S. is still up, there’s one company that’s reporting an exponential job growth rate: Mary Kay.

What’s the best beauty tip Dakota Fanning has gleaned from over 11 years in the makeup artist’s chair? “Always wear sunscreen.” The 17-year-old starlet’s other favorite products include Smith’s Rosebud Salve and Dr. Kiss lip balm. [Allure]
Emma Watson has a few favorites of her own that have come to light during her epic press tour for the final Harry Potter installment, including Benefit Speed Brow Quick Set Gel, U.K.-brand Figs and Rouge’s Lip Face & Body Balm, and, of course, Lancôme Hypnôse mascara. [Express]

Speaking of Fanning, the blond child star-turned-surprisingly well-adjusted adult star has been spotted sporting a pixie cut around the set of her new film, Now Is Good. But Fanning has not in fact pulled an Emma Watson; the new crop is just a really realistic wig. [Daily Mail[
In a move to shed her association with bad tanning habits, Jersey Shore‘s Snooki has taken up a different beauty trend: dip-dyed colored streaks. (She’ll always be all orange glow to us.) [Fashionista]
First a starring role in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, now a starring role in a new Burberry ad. Rosie Huntington-Whitley is the new face of the Brit brand’s forthcoming Burberry Body fragrance. [WWD]
As any beauty junkie is well aware, bold lips are back and still going strong—$92.1 million strong, to be exact. According to new market research, women’s love for lipstick can in fact be quantified—and it’s up 11 percent from last year’s numbers. [WWD]
Serge Gainsbourg has emerged as a somewhat unlikely fragrance muse, as the houses of Dior and Guerlain have both chosen the scandalous chanteur’s smoky voice as the backing tracks for new commercials for Miss Dior and Shalimar, respectively. [Telegraph]
While you’ve presumably already seen the Dakota Fanning-fronted ads for Marc Jacobs’ forthcoming Oh, Lola! perfume, Jacobs’ licensing company, Coty Prestige, officially confirmed Ms. Fanning as the new face of the brand—and subsequently released her Juergen Teller-shot campaign—earlier this past weekend. [People]
The Kristen Stewart-as-Joan Jett transformation for The Runaways has been talked about for months (even longer, it seems, than the are-they-or-aren’t-they rumors around her affair with her Twilight co-star Rob Pattinson), but it’s finally time for the big reveal. The film had its premiere in L.A. last night, and come March 17, New Yorkers will have their chance to see the scowling attitude, spiky mullet, and smoky eyes on the big screen. Jett’s all-girl group broke boundaries not only in music, but also in makeup. We went behind the scenes with lead makeup artist Robin Matthews to discover the power of primer and why the sweatier things got on set, the better.
You worked with Kristen Stewart on New Moon to re-create a character who exists in the pages of a book. For The Runaways, the characters—Joan Jett, Cherie Currie—actually exist in real life. Did that make things easier or more difficult?
Well, it was definitely unique—getting to re-create these iconic women and have them right there on set. The film illustrates this fun, decadent, and extravagant time period. Men and women would dress up in glam and androgynous looks. The challenges were making sure that it wasn’t a modern-day take on The Runaways, or a glossed-over Hollywood version. We wanted a true, gritty, realistic portrayal of these girls’ lives.
It was bound to happen: Dakota Fanning is a teenager. But as evidenced by her appearance at last night’s Palm Springs Film Festival Gala, the soon-to-be 15-year-old has a good head on her shoulders—and a good makeup artist/stylist team keeping her from going the way of Disney-bred teen queens who were a little too anxious to grow up (by which we mean, to experiment with trashy, overdone makeup). Dakota’s bare face, natural brows, and just the slightest touch of mascara spell good things to come for this child star. If she can just manage to avoid the set of all future High School Musical productions, she should be fine.
