It’s a day worth noting in the beauty world as designer Marc Jacobs launches his very first store dedicated solely to his new makeup line.

The cosmetic line, Marc Jacobs Beauty, launched in select Sephora and Marc Jacobs stores today containing 16 fresh-complexion and color-based products, and four must-have makeup brushes.

But selling his collection only at Sephora wasn’t enough for the expanding designer. According to Women’s Wear Daily, Jacobs also opened his very first store that will sell only his makeup products.

Located at 385 Bleecker St., the Manhattan-based shop was once used as a Marc Jacobs accessories store and is now revamped to cater to makeup lovers.

Jacobs designed the shop with as much creativity as he did his makeup line, attempting to give the shop the feel of being a life-size jewel box by adding large mirrors and clean lights perfect for makeup application.

Jacobs hopes that his colorful cosmetic line will inspire young makeup lovers to express their personal sense of creativity.

If you can’t explore the Marc Jacobs Beauty at the new Manhattan shop, stop by a Sephora location or shop online at either, or
