Sleeping Easy; Shiseido’s New Antiaging Range for Millennials; and Marie Robinson’s Favorite Brunettes
Research conducted by Chanel revealed women don’t sleep as much—or as well—as they used to. Whether it’s insomnia or a jam-packed schedule that’s keeping you from getting enough zzz‘s, beauty companies and former beauty editors are coming up with new ways to fake a well-rested glow. If you toss and turn, onetime British Vogue beauty editor Kathy Phillips’ collection, This Works, could help. The range includes candles, sprays, and balms infused with lavender, chamomile, and vetiver, all of which naturally soothe restless sleepers. If a dull complexion is more your problem, Phillips’ upcoming night treatments—like No Wrinkles Midnight Moisture and No Wrinkles Tired Eyes—include hyaluronic acid, retinoids, and water-absorbent cactus flower to hydrate and plump your skin overnight.
They say it’s never too soon use antiaging products, and Shiseido is making it easier for millennials to get started. The company’s newest product line, Ibuki, targets women ages 25 to 34 and aims to combat the “typical” twentysomething lifestyle: lack of sleep, oily skin, visible pores after a night on the town, and poor nutrition. The line has seven products, all of which include Shiseido’s innovative PhytoResist Complex, which inhibits cell shrinkage and boosts moisture in surface cells with trehalose and white nettle. The collection is reasonably priced, ranging from $24 to $45, but if you’d rather give it a test run, a Starter Kit containing two-week supplies of the Gentle Cleanser, Softening Concentrate, and Refining Moisturizer goes for $25.
Who says blondes have more fun? Celebrity colorist Marie Robinson, whose clients include Michelle Williams, Natalie Portman, and Liv Tyler, says the color of the season is brown, but with a unique twist. “It’s about enhancing, not extremes,” she says. From Emma Watson’s shimmering beachy brown to Salma Hayek’s rich mahogany, Robinson narrowed down her list of favorite brunette celebs. The key, she says, is to stay within two shades of your natural color—and get a really good haircut, of course.
Enjoying the wonderful world of pop art won’t be limited to trips to the MoMA come fall, as NARS Cosmetics embarks on the noble task of bringing Andy Warhol’s iconic art movement to makeup.

According to Hunger Games hair department head Linda Flowers, over 500 wigs were used in the blockbuster movie event, but it was Effie’s coiffure that required the most work. “Her hair definitely took the most time,” Flowers says of the character played by Elizabeth Banks. “From start to finish it was about 45 minutes. She’s one of those people who’s so completely and purposefully put together that her wig would be an accessory just like a purse or a pair of shoes. So she has three wigs in the movie, and we’re going to have more for her in the next movie.” [MTV]

Just in time for New Year’s Eve, a wave of new products aimed at treating hangovers is flooding the market. The best advice is abstinence, of course, but if you’re going to rage, these remedies (from pills to patches, available everywhere from your local bodega to Ricky’s NYC or Duane Reade) claim to replenish essential vitamins and acids lost as a result of hitting the bottle. [NYT]

Adriana Lima set tongues wagging last month with her “liquid diet” routine, and now fellow Victoria’s Secret model Marisa Miller is stirring the pot as well. According to Miller, the best way to lose weight is to spend more time wearing less. “Eating smart is all about having an awareness of your body. The most obvious way to do that is by seeing it. I don’t think I could eat a plate of nachos naked—could you?” Strictly logistically speaking, probably not. [USA Today]
