It’s all in the eyes. Eyes really are the windows to your soul. Not only does Sephora have a plethora of eye–popping eye shadows but they also carry what seems to be a ton of different cosmetic lines. Once you step inside, you’re transported into a cosmetic wonderland. The staff is knowledgeable of their products and they’ll guide you on your search to acquire the look you desire. You can satisfy basically all of your beauty needs. While you’re there, try Anastasia Brow Gel, $21.00. It will tame those unruly brows. The end result are supple, conditioned eyebrows without flakiness.

Revive your tired eyes or at least eliminate under eye darkness by using Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer. It’s all about the results! Not only does this product blend seamlessly but it also contains Vitamin A and E which helps minimize the appearance of fine dry lines and wrinkles while providing moisture and antioxidant protection.

Your eyes aren’t complete without mascara. Lashes should appear long and full without clumps. Our pick for lush lashes that will last throughout the day sans flaking is Estee Lauder MagnaScopic Volume Mascara. For a natural eye use one coat but for a more dramatic look, apply two coats.
