To get just the right shade of crimson, celebrity makeup artist Amy Nadine layered Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge in Iconic ($24), a bright red, over the brand's Aqua Rouge in Burgundy ($24). While glossy, the highly pigmented colors combine to make a full-of-depth hue that lasts and lasts. Added Nadine, "No need to reapply throughout the night — not even once."

The long-awaited Chanel No. 5 campaign featuring Brad Pitt has finally been released, marking the first time the brand has ever used a man to promote the iconic fragrance. "There You Are" features Pitt delivering a monologue while staring directly out at viewers. There is no soundtrack, and the only mention of the fragrance comes at the tail end of the commercial, making it feel more art house than fragrance counter. Brad Pitt represents a different direction for Chanel No. 5, so what do you think of "There You Are"?
If you don't have the hair you crave, there could be things you're doing in between salon visits to make your hair less than wondrous. With a few slight routine changes, however, you'll be well on your way to stronger, shinier, all-around-better hair. Find the remedy to common styling missteps when you keep reading.
Enter Method's dish and hand soap ($5, Whole Foods), which is packaged in a blend of recovered ocean plastic and postconsumer recycled plastic. Over the past year and a half, Method employees joined cleanup groups to hand-collect plastic from beaches in Hawaii — more than a ton in total. From there, the recovered plastic was recycled into the bottles that hold the soap. (It smells fresh, by the way.) Will soap bottles alone save the planet? No, but they can move people to reuse and recycle. And since the first step toward a cleaner ocean is keeping plastic out of it, that seems like a good place to start.
Looking for a Halloween costume that really pops? Roy Lichtenstein's classic pop art characters come alive with this amazing makeup transformation. In just under an hour, MAC Senior Artist Tiffany Johnston used brushes, paint, and skill to take us from a real-life woman to a living comic character. Want to see how it all came together? Watch now!
The costume: Azealia Banks
Raptress extraordinaire Azealia Banks has been gaining popularity for more than her music. Her mink-tinted hair, talon-like nails, and sultry makeup are all part of her look, making for a seriously relevant and fun Halloween costume.
Hair and makeup: Since Azealia's hair is Rapunzel-long, try extensions or a lengthy wig to re-create her style. A bright eye shadow and exaggerated false lashes are must haves, along with a deep lipstick hue. Bonus points if you were able to nab Azealia's Yung Rapunxel lipstick with MAC; swipe it on to complete the look.
What to wear: Let no bustier top go unworn. The rapper has a passion for crop tops and high-waisted shorts in bold, bright colors. Azealia loves a good leather jacket, too, so pull one on if it's a chilly night. Don't forget to zip or lace your thigh-high boots up, either.
Take it to the next level: Don some crazy 3D nail art, carry around a microphone, and put on a show for anyone who will listen.
