There is no question that Instagram has affected how the world shares information—especially when it comes to beauty. From Beyoncé’s pixie to Jennifer Lawrence’s crop, one selfie (and a few snip-snips) can set the world on fire. JLaw told Barbara Walters last night that, after being selected as one of her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013, “…the weirdest thing about all of this is probably seeing my haircut on the news.” (Oh, the power of social media.) And this week is no exception: Cara Delevingne dropped her YSL ad campaign; Rihanna revealed that a new namesake fragrance could be in the works (and that she’s the new face of Balmain); and Josephine Skriver showed off how she looks in a wig (one of the year’s most beloved accessories outside of Fendi’s Buggies).

If ever, while reading Catching Fire (the second installment in The Hunger Games series that will grace the silver screen this Friday), you found yourself fantasizing about the über-luxe world of the Capitol, where being adventurous with hair and makeup is de rigueur, then you’re in luck. CoverGirl created the Capitol Beauty Studio, a Web site that showcases twelve looks inspired by the various industrial districts of Panem. While we wouldn’t normally encourage hitting the movies in costume—after all, you wouldn’t want to fall into the same category as a “Trekkie” or Star Wars superfan—this maquillage, created by face painter Dotti, is almost couture-like. And pairs perfectly with Trish Summerville’s (the costume designer for the film) ready-to-wear collection for Net-a-Porter. Katniss Everdeen (a.k.a. Jennifer Lawrence) could easily rock the rich crimson mouth representative of the Luxury district, geometric blocks of cream shadow hailing from her native District 12, and just about everything else in between. Effie Trinket would certainly approve.
Rihanna appears to have jumped on the bob bandwagon—joining recent short-hair converts like Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Aniston, and Jennifer Lawrence. While we’ve seen the star sport sleek and asymmetrical versions in the past, her new cut is reminiscent of the choppy wigs spotted this season at Fendi. [Instagram]
Elizabeth Arden appointed designer Shoshanna Gruss to Style Director—the first ever for the beauty brand. In addition to Twitter chats and a Polyvore contest, you’ll start seeing the fruits of her labor next fall when a cosmetic bag collection (sold as a gift with purchase) hits counters.
L’Oréal Professionel is going streaking. The company is launching eight shades of liquid-to-powder hair chalk in March of 2014. [WWD]
Scent layering started long before Jo Malone—in the Middle East, it’s customary to offer guests a tray of perfumes post-dinner. So much better than a mint. [Elle.com]
Upon first seeing Jennifer Lawrence’s new short cut, I was convinced it was a wig. Not only are they de rigueur on the runway and the red carpet these days, but I also wasn’t able to entirely wrap my head around the idea that Katniss could now double as Kate Gosselin (what a way to dodge the paparazzi…). At last night’s U.K. premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, however, Lawrence looked every bit the star that she is—strands sexily slicked back, with a strong side part and smoky eye makeup. And with no hair grazing her neck and shoulders, we got to see the Dior dress she wore in all its back-baring glory. I’m pretty certain nobody could confuse the celeb for a mother of eight driving a minivan.
May Sum, a vendor on Etsy, is essentially the Michelangelo of makeup. But in lieu of marble, she crafts celebrities (like Lady Gaga) and street-style stars (such as Susie Bubble) out of lipstick. [Telegraph]
Fellow artist and fashion photographer Chris Peun was equally inspired by cosmetics—using nail polish to capture “the complexity of the solar system.” [Wired.com]
Jennifer Lawrence is continuing the trend to get chopped (or wear a wig), posting a photo of her new “cut” on Facebook. No matter how you slice it, she’s a definite doppelganger for Kate Gosselin. [Facebook]
Jared Leto is smooth—real smooth. He committed to his role as a transsexual in Dallas Buyers Club by waxing not just his legs but also his eyebrows. [The Cut]
It’s never too early to break out the Mariah Carey Christmas CD or holiday-themed OPI nail polishes inspired by the diva. Naturally, there’s plenty of glitter in the line (and not the kind that tanks at the box office).
