Perhaps you've rescued the universe from marauding space pirates on your Nintendo DS — but can you save civilization from your own ugly face? Video game maker Sega and the cosmetic giant Shiseido may be able to help in this most noble of quests. That is, if you're a young Japanese woman. The two companies have coupled to make …
