Lady Gaga

We tried Lady Gaga's "Applause" makeup.

It was only a matter of time until we did this, right? Lady Gaga's "Applause" single art—which spotlights just her face in colorful, smeared face paint—was released in late July, but it's taken us until NOW to try it on ourselves.

Part of that is because she hadn't started wearing it IRL until earlier this week to promote her new single (which she's performing at the 2013 VMAs, BTW). The other part is that this beauty look is very heavy on the "ART" aspect of ARTPOP. It's rare that we stray from the daily makeup mainstays of black liner, a little mascara, and some kind of lip situation (I know, bare bones), so we knew we had to enlist in the help of professionals (a.k.a. the nice folks at the Sephora across the street from our offices) for this one.

Makeup artist magician Ashlee Sadler hooked us up, and (along with a Vine and a ton of mental snapshots of hilarious reactions) we took down meticulous notes on what she did. Just in case you want to recreate the look yourself.

Madonna's custom MDNA tour lipstick is coming to a Sephora near you.

Okay, so on one hand, Madonna's one-off Jean Paul Gaultier cage corset will probably never be available for wide public consumption. Nor will virtually ANY of her MDNA tour costumes. If you're anything like us, you've spent more than one sleepless night mourning this sad fact, clutching framed pictures of the JPG sketches in your bedroom with "Frozen" on constant repeat. Well, dry your eyes, chipmunks. According to our friends at InStyle, Madge's makeup artist Gina Brooke has teamed up with the cosmetics brand Make Up For Ever for a collaboration that will bring you that much closer to your MDNA dreams.

Stylist Joey Tierney, who has worked with Audrina for some time now, dressed the 25-year-old in chic, sophisticated basics, which are perfect for fall. Want Audrina's exact look? Find out how below!

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
