2016 Best Makeup


When Sephora announced that its Pru outpost was getting a makeover, we wondered how the cosmetics behemoth could possibly improve. But the sprawling new storefront, which reopened in February after a lengthy renovation, has upped the ante with the addition of iPad-equipped vanity stations, where beauty-savvy staffers offer free tutorials on crucial skills like brow-shaping. Naturally, the store still dazzles with an unmatched selection of brands that runs the gamut from pro favorites like Make Up Forever to classic standbys like Clinique.
