• Emmanuelle Chriqui wears foundation all the time, except to the gym, where she doesn’t wear makeup at all (ahem, Tinsley Mortimer). Plus, she never wears moisturizer, because she claims it causes breakouts on her oily skin. Maybe she didn’t use the oil-free kind. [Bella Sugar]

• Aaron de Mey steps in as the artistic director for makeup at Lancôme, filling Gucci Westman’s vacated post. The big products the company will launch under his direction are the L’Absolu Rouge lipstick and a mascara that’s said to be “next generation” for fall. [WWD]

• Fifty-three percent of women are concerned about undereye circles, which are caused by excess pigment. Getting rid of them is a bitch, as you probably know. Sephora stocks over 50 products to treat undereye circles; laser surgery is also an option, but plumpers are a more practical option. Oh, aging. [NYT]

• The tattoo-ink company Freedom2 plans to launch skin-care products like sunscreen and anti-aging gunk. [Cosmetics Design]

• OMG. Amy Winehouse’s bouffant do is enormous! [Jezebel]

• We’re loving this play-by-play of what to expect during your first Brazilian wax and the commenters fighting about how long the wax lasts. The writer claims six weeks. We’ve never heard of that kind of prolonged hairlessness, but maybe it’s possible. [Bella Sugar]

• Hairstylist Horst Rechelbacher became an organic farmer after he left his career in salons because of health problems caused by product fumes. Now, he’s launching Intelligent Nutrients, a line of beauty products made — you guessed it — organically. [Chic Report/Fashion Week Daily]

• In August, Paco Rabanne will launch 1 Million, a fragrance for men inspired by Rabanne’s fashion line. It’s going to smell like spicy rose, combining “sensuality and freshness.” [Now Smell This]
