MAKEUP

• A book charting the rivalry between beauty titans Helena Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden, called War Paint, by Lindy Woodhead, is being turned into a Broadway musical. [Telegraph]

COSMETIC SURGERY

• Plastic surgeons see more and more people asking to get work done on their hands. A “hand lift” is a 5-to-10-minute procedure, which costs about $1,200, and involves injecting synthetic fillers under the first layer of skin to plump it up. [NYTimes]

• Kim Kardashian is suing a plastic surgeon in Mexico who used her image for one of his billboard ads. When asked to comment, the doctor said, "Obviously I did not speak to Kim Kardashian. I do not have her number." This probably won't end well for him. [TMZ]

NAILS

• You can finally buy 'The Hunger Games' nail polish here. [SheFinds]

SKIN

• As the evil queen in the Snow White remake Mirror Mirror, Julia Roberts plays a character willing to do anything to retain her youthful beauty — she subjects herself to fresh bird poop on her face, maggots in her ear, bumblebees on her lips, and scorpion stings. [Us Magazine]

HAIR

• Hoda Kotb took a retrospective look at Kathie Lee Gifford's hair on the Today show yesterday. [HuffPo]

• Amanda Harlech, who works closely with Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel, tells Into the Gloss, "I do dye my hair ... but that’s because I like the idea of really black hair. I don’t care if I live as long as seventy-five, I’m going to have black hair." [Into the Gloss]
