Jessica Biel’s Skin No Longer Orange; Skin Color Affects Nicotine Addiction

By
No more orange!

MAKEUP
• A file that belonged to U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown contained detailed information about how to apply makeup and fake tanner. Apparently Clinique and Guerlain were both recommended to the politician. [Sun UK via Daily Beast]

• Jessica Biel showed up to the screening of Easy Virtue last night in Manhattan with shiny pink lips and loose curls covering just one eye. This is a considerable departure from the orange skin she had at the Met gala last week. [Beauty Counter/Style.com]

HAIR
• Sting's wife Trudie Styler flew her hairstylist Antonio Prieto from New York to Washington, D.C., to do her hair for the White House Correspondents' Dinner. Some see this as a conflict of interest because she co-founded the Rainforest Foundation and often speaks out against oil companies. Private planes ain't exactly ecofriendly. [NYP]

SKIN
• A Penn State University study says that the darker your skin is, the more likely you are to be addicted to cigarettes. This is because of how melanin (the pigment that makes your skin color) blends with nicotine. The more melanin you have, the more nicotine can build up. [Allure/Daily Beauty Reporter]

FRAGRANCE
• François Payard of the fancy restaurant Payard just launched three chocolate-infused fragrances called Inspirations by Payard: Bergamot Truffle, Lychee Mousse, and Pistachio Ganache. They sell for $42 to $48 each online. [Now Smell This]
