    Ivanka Trump might be struggling to sell clothing in the United States, but in China her face and name are hot property. The First Daughter’s face is regarded as the ultimate in feminine beauty for Chinese women who are rushing to their cosmetic surgeons in the hope of getting the full Ivanka makeover. The Foshan Yiwanka Medical Management company in the city of Foshan offers breast, nose and eye augmentation and liposuction inspired by President Donald Trump’s eldest daughter. The company registered its name, which features the Chinese translation of Ivanka, ‘Yiwanka’, before the US election. “Young women here want...

    My favorite person on Instagram these days is a guy who matches his makeup to his snacks. His name is Tim Owens, but online he goes by Skelotim, and he is a bald, perma-stubbled man who knows his way around a contour kit. Last week, he posted a video of himself applying dark purple eye shadow, sky-blue eyeliner, fluttery fake lashes and a bold grape lipstick. Then, after shooting the camera a succession of saucy glances, he raised a packaged Smucker’s Uncrustables peanut-butter-and-grape-jelly sandwich, revealing his culinary inspiration for the day’s look. He does this every week. He calls it...

    Scientists, health officials, and manufacturers already know that a chemical preservative found in some products, including cosmetics, is harmful to people and animals in high concentrations, but a new Brown University study in tadpoles reports that it can also interrupt neurological development even in very low concentrations. In the cosmetics industry, the biocide methylisothiazolinone or MIT, is considered safe at concentrations of less than 100 parts per million. Lab studies, however, have found that lower concentrations affected the growth of animal neurons. Picking up from there, the Brown researchers performed a series of experiments to investigate how 10 days of...

(snip) While Michelle Obama has also been applauded for wearing clothes from affordable stores such as J.Crew and H&M, she also favors big-name designers such as Jason Wu and Isabel Toledo. The floral Barbara Tfank dress she wore to meet Middleton this week cost at least $2,000.

Francesco d'Errico, an archaeologist from the University of Bordeaux, France, has found crafted lumps of pigment – essentially crayons – left behind by Neanderthals across Europe. He says that Neanderthals, who most likely had pale skin, used these dark pigments to mark their own as well as animal skins. And, since body art is a form of communication, this implies that the Neanderthals could speak, d'Errico says. Working with Marie Soressi of...

"Grooming standards that appropriately discriminate between the genders are not facially discriminatory,'' the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said in a 7-4 ruling. The court said some sex-differentiated workplace rules may be discriminatory -- for example, weight rules imposed only on female flight attendants, which the court struck...

    Previous studies have suggested that men who are fertile have more attractive faces. In the latest research, scientists at St Andrews University established a similar pattern in women - and then looked further to examine the effect cosmetics have on this gift of nature. They found that make-up could improve the appearance of the less attractive woman, thus confusing the instincts of the male into thinking she was more fertile than she actually was. But on the good-looking woman, it did not improve her chances of attracting a partner. She would be just as successful relying on her natural beauty....

It was the second time the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the largest in the nation, heard the closely watched sex-discrimination case. In December, a three-judge panel of the San Francisco-based circuit said the woman's firing was legal, because the Reno casino also demanded male employees to be equally well groomed under the hotel's "Beverage Department Image Transformation" program. The smaller panel of judges tossed out Darlene Jespersen's case against...

    A new health alert over chemicals used in make-up, shampoo and soaps is issued today. Experts say products containing the chemicals - called phthalates - could cause women to give birth to boys with female characteristics. Their research found shrunken genitals and less masculine behaviour in babies. Phthalates help to give cosmetics colour and bond perfume molecules. They are also used in pliable plastics such as clingfilm, kidney dialysis tubes, blood bags and even children's toys. "This is a very big problem," said study leader Professor Shanna Swan, of the University of Rochester. The research, to be published-next month in...

James Herndon, 16, said the five-day suspension imposed Monday by administrators at San Bernardino's Pacific High School was unfair because females are allowed to wear cosmetics on campus. "If I can't wear makeup," he said, "then the girls or the staff can't wear makeup either."

    Guys love sex, but there are some things they just won't do to get it. A new survey of American men by GQ magazine reveals that 92 percent would never wear makeup — even if it guaranteed a more fulfilling sex life. And only 14 percent of those quizzed said they would make themselves up if they knew it would get them a 25 percent raise at work. "Makeup is sort of the final frontier for guys. It's one thing to take money from your mother's purse, it's another one thing to take her lipstick," said Michael Hainey, GQ's...

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A female bartender who refused to wear makeup at a Reno, Nevada, casino was not unfairly dismissed from her job, a U.S. federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday. Darlene Jespersen, who had worked for nearly 20 years at a Harrah's Entertainment Inc casino bar in Reno, Nevada, objected to the company's revised policy that required female bartenders, but not men, to wear makeup. A previously much-praised employee, Jespersen was fired in 2000 after the firm instituted a "Beverage Department Image Transformation" program and she sued, alleging sex discrimination. In a 2-1 decision, a three-judge panel of...

    OTTAWA — Health Canada says cosmetic manufacturers will be required to list the ingredients of their products on labels within two years. The cabinet approved the changes after 10 years of study. Health Canada says consumers have lost hair, suffered serious swelling or sustained eye injuries. It estimates cosmetics users suffer at least 900-thousand minor undesirable effects every year, but says only about 50 cases are reported to authorities. The Canadian Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association, which represents manufacturers and marketers, welcomes the regulatory change. It says consumers want to know what their cosmetics are made of. The listing...

    An American B-movie horror actor has been told that he is the rightful prince of an Afghan province, thanks to the antics of an illustrious ancestor. Scott Reiniger starred in the original Dawn of the Dead and also cropped up in the 2004 remake. But should the acting work dry up, he could always attempt to reclaim his birthright as the "Prince of Ghor", a remote province in western Afghanistan. It transpires that Reiniger is the great-great-great grandson of the 19th-century American adventurer Josiah Harlan, who was granted the title as the result of a treaty he signed with the...

    WASHINGTON : Presidential hopeful and Massachusetts Senator John Kerry today announced he has offered Johnny Depp first refusal of the coveted VP spot in his Democratic bid for the White House. I first saw Johnny in that scissors movie, Kerry told reporters, and I’ve wanted to run with him ever since. A source close to the Kerry campaign stated that Kerry believes Depp’s charm, charisma and intense global popularity is just the thing needed to sway voter support of post-teen females, twenty-something housewives, every woman in middle-aged America and that ‘certain section of guys’ towards the Democratic ticket in November....
