FACE TIME: Breaking up is hard to do. But breaking out is no fun either. Kirsten Dunst and Jake Gyllenhaal, who were spotted kissing again in October, tackled both problems on Nov. 7.

INRODUCING: HAUTE FACE
Haute off the presses: Cassandra Mills's brand-new cosmetics line not only contains the perfect foundation for her but also, she insists, offers makeup "for women of every skin tone, from Asia to Africa and everywhere in between."
