• Pat McGrath on Rooney Mara’s makeup in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo: “It had to look like Lisbeth did the makeup herself. Not like a makeup artist did it for her. If you’re this ultra-tomboy, you’re not comfortable getting the perfect face in the mirror, right? Instead, we kept the skin really clean and raw and focused on shaping the eyes … There was no foundation. I wanted her skin to be translucent and for it to change color in the cold.” [Beauty Counter]

• Sofia Vergara has been wearing makeup since her early teens. “I’m Latin, so it’s very normal when you’re 14, 15, to put on some blush, some mascara, lip gloss. My mother always did her makeup, and I’d always watch her. It’s part of growing up for a Latin woman.” [Allure]

• For those who can’t quite handle cat-eye makeup, there’s apparently a tamer version: “kitten eye.” [LAT]

• British skin-care expert Karin Herzog, whose clients include Kate Middleton, says that slathering on moisturizer in winter “can result in blocking the pores, bombarding the skin, preventing it from breathing and consequently increase the problems.” Oops. [People/StyleWatch]
