Tyra Banks is fulfilling her promise to “help us all feel as fierce as we truly are” by launching a different kind of ANTM-type contest, which will focus on teenage plus-sized models. The competition will aptly be called the “Fiercely Real Teen Model Search.” Fierce. [NY Daily News]

A new survey shows that Japanese male college students are more interested in moisturizer, cleansing scrubs, and beauty salons than they are in cars. Please, oh please let this trend trickle west to the U.S. mainstream! [Business Week]

Tanning, From The Inside Out?; Dior Beauty Joins The Vlogger Generation; And More…


A recent study confirms what most of us already knew: Environmental factors like smoking, being overweight, and not using sunscreen are more likely to cause the physical signs of aging than a genetic predisposition. (Sorry for the accusations, Mom.) [Science Daily]

There is hope for the sunscreen-shunners among you, though. A new anti-sunburn drug that protects even the palest of people from skin cancer and UV rays may be hitting the market. It also allegedly causes a tan, but isn’t being branded for cosmetic purposes… yet. [The Telegraph]

Lauren Luke: The Book; The Truth About Sleeping Beauty; And More


After capturing the online community’s attention with her easy-to-access makeup guides, YouTube phenom and cosmetics line creator Lauren Luke has released a book.

Forget listening to hip-hop on your ear buds before heading into competition. Michelle Roark, the 2009 U.S. freestyle skiing champion who moonlights as a chemical engineer, is convinced that smell, not rhythm and blues, can make you a champion. Her scent of choice is called Confidence, an eau she mixed up from a blend of rose oil, bergamot, and grapefruit. Even if it doesn’t work for everyone, as she maintains it does, it’s way cheaper than hiring a motivational coach to help sort out that low batting average. [WSJ]

With new macabre collections from brands like MAC and Chanel, black makeup is still making headlines this season.

Sephora’s Times Square Debut, Take II


To celebrate the opening of its new Times Square location on Broadway between 46th and 47th streets—not to be confused with the other one three blocks south—Sephora is rolling out the red carpet tomorrow for Taylor Momsen and Theodora and Alexandra Richards, among other pretty young things. In addition, the Sephora Pro Beauty Team will be providing lip, eye, and face express services from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. and will also attempt to set two Guinness World Records for the Most Lipstick Applications by an Individual in One Hour and the Most Cosmetic Makeovers by a Team of Five in One Hour (yes, these categories really exist). What we’re most looking forward to, though, is seeing Lauren Luke. At the urging of her hordes of virtual fans, the Panacea81 YouTube phenom launched a makeup line of her own that just debuted on and will receive prime real estate at the company’s newest location. The day’s festivities start at 9 a.m. and rage on until 5 p.m.
