This longwearing pencil crayon is creamy enough to glide across the lid without skipping spots or pulling skin, but longwearing to eliminate feathering or bleeding. Made with a built in sharpener, this eyeliner can be made subtle or smoked out. Moisturizing botanicals like cupuacu butter help support skin's moisture barrier and promote the appearance of fuller lashes. Comes in an array of metallically, colorful shades! ($26)
Arbonne Shape It Up Tinted Brow Cream: Brushed up, piecey brows were seen all over the runway! Try this brow cream which contains moisturizing ingredients such as eyebright, hibiscus, jambu and larch & green tea complex! The formula will also soothe and help brows grow thicker. Just glide on with the specially designed mini brush to add a natural looking color and feel to brows. Use alone or pair with Shape It Up Brow Pencil for more dramatic results. ($32)
Merle Norman Shadow Stick in ‘Watercolor’: Seafoam green eyes were all the rage this fashion week! Play up your eyes with this long-wearing, creamy shadow. The easy-to-use stick is crease-resistant and designed for versatility. They're perfect to use as your main shadow, a base or even a liner with a buildable formula designed to go from sheer to full-on color. They even have a special key ingredient, microspheres, which impart a silky texture while absorbing oil to keep lids sebum free. ($18, Merle Norman Cosmetic Studios)
