Eva Mendes is having a big beauty year. The Cuban-American stunner has been signed by both Pantene and Parfums Thierry Mugler. But campaign coups aside, Mendes’ personal beauty routine isn’t all that glam. “I’m low-maintenance when I’m on my own, in the regular day to day,” she says. That translates to a regimen heavy on green-leaning favorites and a choice selection of products from her skincare guru Dr. Nicholas V. Perricone. “I totally drank the Kool-Aid,” she says of the renowned clinical dermatologist’s neuropeptide philosophy. There’s one thing you’ll never find in Mendes’ makeup bag, though, and that’s lip gloss. “I think when having a certain shape of mouth—like the one I have—gloss does not look chic. Therefore, I stay the hell away from it.” Click here to find out what she does keep close at hand.
How does Raquel “beyond the cleavage” Welch keep her body in tiptop shape at 70? Power walking, of course (low-impact cardio is the way to go). [Daily Mail]

The music video for “Judas,” Lady Gaga’s second single off her Born This Way LP, has arrived. One of the more compelling visuals—aside from the Jesus figure that’s dressed as a Hells Angel—comes when Gaga pulls a gun on Judas only to reveal that her weapon is in fact a bullet of pink lipstick, which she smears all over Judas’ face. The makeup is mightier than the firearm, it would appear. [NY Mag]
Rihanna’s Reb’l Fleur has been censored in Kuwait—at least the print ad has. The Kuwaiti version of the campaign features a closed-robe Ri-Ri, sans suggestive sternum-baring. [Jezebel]

News flash: Despite what we may have heard, Karl Lagerfeld is NOT involved in a new fragrance that smells like books. Apparently, he’s only working on scents that he is contractually obliged to say he is a part of. [Scented Salamander]
Kate Middleton is proving to be quite the down-to-earth bride-to-be. After doing her own makeup for that Mario Testino-lensed engagement picture, the future princess will reportedly give it another go for her actual wedding day. The better to balance out the six hair dressers that will be on duty, one presumes. [StyleList]
While Botox may do wonders for smoothing out your own smile lines, new research suggests that the face-freezing toxin may dull your ability to understand emotions in others. [USA Today]
It looks like Malin Akerman has jumped aboard the red train, dyeing her blond locks a shade of auburn. With Drew Barrymore and Mandy Moore doing the same this past week, it’s safe to say that the flame-haired trend is, er, on fire. [InStyle]

In case you somehow missed it, what with all the fun-with-fonts prints, plastic charm necklaces, and sneakers with wedge heels (on the runway!), the theme at D&G for Fall was “street couture,” according to Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce’s reigning makeup mistress, Pat McGrath. A requisite “graphic” eye followed suit, which McGrath drew onto models’ upper lash lines in a thick stroke with a sixties flick at the outer corners using Dolce & Gabbana The Makeup Crayon Intense Eyeliner in #5 Black. To add depth and brightness, McGrath etched its Crayon Intense Eyeliner in #13 White along the inner rim of the lower lash line before turning to her trusty tube of mascara and her increasing, somewhat out-of-character reliance on brow pencils and powders (see Sui, Anna; Mendel, J.; and Prada for further evidence that the queen of the bleached brow may be changing her ways). Cheeks were lightly carved out with a soft swipe of blush along cheekbones, and lips were left natural to maintain the image of a “modern young woman”—who happens to have a thing for nail polish. Tips were painted in a rainbow of colors, including orange-red, bright yellow, and metallic purple (as evidenced above) to coordinate with the designers fluoro-centric collection.
As for the hair, coiffing star Sam McKnight took a page out of Guido Palau’s book at Rag & Bone, washing models’ strands on site with Pantene’s Color Preserve shampoo and middle-parting them to provide the light, airy texture clean hair takes on before it gets bogged down with product. A laborious undertaking, no doubt, but one that yields a fresh, finished product that moves quite well as it sashays down the catwalk.
Aside from famously swearing by Tahitian noni juice, yoga, and her own Kora Organics skincare line, expectant mother Miranda Kerr’s other beauty indulgences include makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift’s RMS Beauty line and body brushing. “[It] stimulates blood flow and exfoliates the skin,” she says. It sure does, as anyone who saw Kerr’s exquisite nude portrait in the December issue of W is well aware. [Vogue Australia]

A new study contends that indoor tanning abuse is more common among women whose first experiences with the Bed came at the suggestion and with the support of their mothers. We’re all for mother-daughter bonding, but… [MSNBC]
