A new study that set out to determine the lengths women will go to for beauty reveals a predisposition to trying just about anything. Along with drinking lots of water and pinching cheeks to create the illusion of a rosy flush, popular beauty remedies include cucumbers to relieve tired eyes; toothpaste to heal blemishes and insect bites; lemon juice to highlight hair; baking soda to whiten teeth; and egg and vinegar rinses to boost hair shine. We’re an inventive bunch, that’s for sure. [Telegraph]
Getting that coveted form of tousled wave popularized by Gisele, and known simply as “beach hair,” is an art form that many women are willing to pay big bucks for at the salon, although a spray bottle of homemade salt water might just serve the same purpose. [NYT]
L’Oréal Paris spokesperson and actress Julianne Moore does not let a little thing like aging in Hollywood get her down—mostly because she doesn’t think about fine lines and wrinkles in a purely aesthetic sense. “Our fear of aging is really a fear of dying; aging is a physical manifestation of decay, and I think that is what’s so upsetting to most people.” [Daily Mail]
The Hunger Games: the makeup range? CoverGirl intends on making it so. (Whether or not that will also mean a cosmetics contract for one Jennifer Lawrence remains to be seen.) [MTV]
As we count down to the Golden Globes—a ceremony that, in all of its booze-fueled glory, kick-starts awards season—many have begun to formulate their own predictions for who will occupy the winner’s circle in both the acting and the just as highly contested style categories. Before we look forward, however, we thought it would be far more informative to peer back at a dozen of this year’s female nominees to decide which of their former Golden Globes cameos is the most memorable. And so, without further ado, allow us to present the Golden Globes Beauty Hall of Fame, which will be welcoming a new class this Sunday. Click here for a slideshow.
Julianne Moore was only just named the new face of L’Oreal’s antiaging Cellular Renaissance line, and she’s already doling out the beauty wisdom. “I think it’s a privilege to age,” says the 51-year-old flame-haired actress. “Often as adult women, you hear people say that they wish they were younger—to which I say, enjoy where you are. Because by wishing that you are younger, you really only end up missing the year in which you’re living. So enjoy that year and every year that you have as long as you’re able.” [WWD]
Butter London has teamed up with Goop to offer a limited-edition three-pack of custom-blended polishes to loyal readers of Gwyneth Paltrow’s ever-growing lifestyle website. Get while the getting’s good. [Goop]
Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday fragrance has finally arrived—as has its elaborate commercial, which features a black-clad Minaj laying on a bed of black roses, which turn a shade of bright fuchsia after she pricks her finger on a thorn and bleeds bubblegum pink all over the set. Oh, she also puts in a pair of hot pink contact lenses at the end, you know, to hammer home the point. [MTV]
Clinique has partnered with model Petra Nemcova’s Happy Hearts Fund and will start raising funds for the foundation dedicated to rebuilding schools in disaster-stricken areas through profits earned from its Happy Heart women’s fragrance and a series of limited-edition “Make Someone Happy” T-shirts.

Julianne Moore is a dead ringer for Sarah Palin in the new HBO flick Game Changer, which has a lot to do with an impressive hair and makeup job. “I’ve never been tan in my life, so we had to cover up my freckles, then darken my skin, and there was contouring,” says Moore, who spent two hours in the makeup chair each morning to get into character. Re-drawn lip lines, fake nails, and carefully selected contacts also helped along the transformation. “I asked to make the iris of the lens bigger than my iris. She has enormous brown eyes, so it made my eyes look bigger.” [People]
WWD caught up with fashion’s favorite hairstylist, Guido Palau, to find out what inspires the man Marc Jacobs and Miuccia Prada trust to make coiffing history each season, and according to Palau, he’s a sponge for information. “If I see something once, it goes in [my head],” he says. “It could be a painting or a building or a texture of hair or someone’s hair on the street or a movie or a moment. If I like it, it somehow gets stored in my brain and will come out at a certain moment. Style comes from everywhere. You just have to be open to it and take it all in.” [WWD]
Nicholas Kirkwood had a specific someone’s hair in mind when he designed a pair of shoes with a red ponytail dangling off the back. “It’s like a Florence and the Machine kind of red,” he says of the detail on the Jean Cocteau and Elsa Schiaparelli-inspired boot. [Fashionista]
Lindsay Lohan is making beauty headlines today—and the buzz has nothing to do with the did-she-or-didn’t-she speculation over her perfectly pouty lips: The natural redhead has cashed in her platinum-blond locks for a shade of light auburn. [Perez Hilton]
According to data from leading plastic surgeons around the world, the most sought-after female features include Taylor Swift’s hair, Natalie Portman’s nose, Anne Hathaway’s eyes, Scarlett Johansson’s lips, January Jones’ cheeks, and Halle Berry’s jawline—which equals one weird-looking composite.

EXCLUSIVE: You Can Take It With You: Clutch-Sized Beauty Essentials For The Golden Globes And Beyond
At last year’s Golden Globes, something unusual happened that completely usurped the show’s typical beauty highlights. After the ceremony began and the gaggle of gowns, chignons, and painted pouts were seated, the camera panned to Angelina Jolie, who, at that very moment, rifled through her bag, produced a crystalline pink lip gloss, and proceeded to apply it at will. The Twitterverse erupted, and within a matter of hours, it was revealed that Angie was a fan of Chantecaille’s Brilliant Gloss in Love—so much so that she brought it in her clutch for periodic touch-ups throughout the evening. At the 69th annual Golden Globes last night, there were no such live, on-screen beauty moments to speak of, although we couldn’t quell the burning desire to know just what the nominees had packed in their purses. So, we did what any good reporter would do: We asked their makeup artists. Here, in a Style.com exclusive, face-painting stars like Clarins celebrity beauty artist Pati Dubroff and global artistry director and brand ambassador for Laura Mercier Matin Maulawizada tell us the single item they sent A-listers like Julianne Moore and Claire Danes down the red carpet with. Because you never know when unnecessary shine or a faded statement lip could ruin your moment in the spotlight.
