So, how does model Adriana Lima prep for the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show? Easy: She works out twice daily and lives on a diet of protein shakes made from powdered eggs. For nine days prior to the show, she’ll eat no solids, and 12 hours before it, she’ll take no liquids—”so you dry out. Sometimes you can lose up to eight pounds just from that,” the Brazilian bombshell says. Hey, at least she’s honest; we had a sneaking suspicion that she doesn’t just roll out of bed and into that diamond-studded G-string. [Daily Mail]
The premiere of Breaking Dawn: Part 1 may still be two weeks away, but the blockbuster is already making beauty headlines. Twilight Beauty (the cosmetics collection inspired by the wildly popular book-turned-film series) will release Immortal Twilight, a citrus and chamomile fragrance, in honor of the movie’s release.

Kirsten Dunst has revealed that part of her post-moviemaking plan includes dreams of launching a home decor and beauty line. “I am someone who really cares about the products I put out. Even if it was inexpensive, I’d want it to be really well done. I do love nice-smelling things. We’ll see what happens.” There’s definitely a fragrance contract in Dunst’s future. [USA Today]
And the winner is…Miss Venezuela. Twenty-one-year-old Ivian Sarcos took the Miss World Crown at the international pageant in London this weekend. [Reuters]
Kristen Stewart’s dye job was the talk of the summer when colorist Marie Robinson took the Twilight star strawberry blonde for the saga’s Eclipse press junket. But it appears as though Stewart has returned to her roots for fall, sporting a deep chestnut hue at Spike TV’s Scream 2010 awards this weekend. Seeing as how we too like to go darker in the colder months, we applaud the transition—despite having been fans of her “summer ginger” strands. Which color do you prefer?
The death of Princess Diana has inspired many a postmortem tribute, although Bompas and Parr’s latest may stand alone in, um, its uniqueness. The U.K.-based purveyor of fine jellies has produced an “occult jam” made from a strand of the late princess’ hair mixed with a consommé of gin, milk, and sugar to further pay homage to her flaxen locks. Ew. [Time]
In other hair news, Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance has published a guide to men’s hairstyles, mandating “short, neat hair” to, say, mullets or ponytails. Stylistic fades are also out, sadly. [BBC]

The burlesque beauty trend that sparked up a few years back (thanks, Dita) is inspiring an increasingly large pool of pheromone-based fragrances and sexually charged cosmetics lines intended to make you actually irresistible. [Independent]
Did you know that the concealer you’ve had in your makeup bag for the past two years has likely gone bad? Ditto the lip gloss and highlighter. Here, a handy guide to when you should say out with the old, in with the new. [Daily Mail]
The Twilight film saga may have inspired a cosmetic range, but its biggest beauty impact may be inadvertently steering impressionable youths away from cancer-causing tanning beds and sun exposure, thanks to the collective paleness of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Sometimes, it pays to be a creature of the night. [Express]
Collagen filler devotees, rejoice: There’s a new injectable in the works made of tiny beads derived from purified brown algae. It lasts up to a year, too, so your “real” lips won’t need to be touched up every three months anymore. [Allure]
As the Twilight saga—the press junket, not the film series—continues its worldwide romp, Kristen Stewart and co. drew crowds in Madrid at a New Moon fans event last night. We’ve been tracking the actress’ hair and makeup choices and thought now would be an appropriate time to give her some props for a series of tasteful, age-appropriate looks. She’s been complementing clean skin with a sheer lip gloss; minimal black liner with only a slight, subtle smokiness at the outer corners of her eyes; and a fun, fresh highlighter on the inner corners. We’d love to see her grow her brows out a bit but are content that she’s not gobbing on the liner like other starlets close to her age (you know who you are). Thoughts on Stewart’s pared-down glamour?
