Sephora’s Beauty Studio gives you exclusive, one-on-one access to Sephora’s experts. The talented people in the Beauty Studio offer complimentary, in-store Express Services to help you achieve different looks–from a classic smoky eye to an easy, every day look–in a few minutes.  The Express Services are available in-store and are quick and easy to take advantage of–no appointment or minimum purchase required!  Each of these walk-in Express Services gives customers a complimentary, step-by-step tutorial led by trained Sephora makeup artists. If you’re not sure how to wear one of the latest trends, you can check out the trend Express Services, which highlight three major trends from the current season. Among the core Express Services, learn how to deal with liquid eyeliner, false eyelashes, concealing, and flawless foundation.

Make an appointment for a 60-minute dedicated makeup session where an expert artist will create a look for you and help you learn how to re-create it (free with minimum purchase of $50) or opt for a 90-minute private session with a Personal Beauty Advisor who will help you refresh your entire beauty routine along with an expert makeup application (free with minimum purchase of $125).

And if you don’t have time to stop by in-person, the Beauty Studio has plenty of how-to videos that you can watch from home!  In the above video, Sephora PRO team member Eric Soto demonstrates just how important blush and bronzer can be to enhancing the complexion.  One great tip he mentioned is that a subtle highlight above the brow can help give it an instant lift–without the painful surgery!  He recommends powder blushes for all skin types, cream blushes for drier skin types, and cheek stains for normal to oily skin types.  If you have a cool undertone, Soto suggests using a rose, pink, or berry color.  If you have a warm undertone, he recommends using a blush in the peach or apricot family.

    This is a very cool concept!!!

    Christine, this is going to sound so odd but are the pictures YOUR swatches??

  2. AllieD

    Do we know what lipcolor the model in the main picture is wearing for “Crimson Velvets”? It’s so pretty, but much more purple-y than the lip swatches!

  3. This is cool! Digging the colors… very romantic goth >:D

  4. Rachael

    Yup, I recognize those lips in the swatches! Congrats. That’s awesome. And I wish this had gone up yesterday, as I purchased several of those lip products last night. Oh well.

    How cool is it that they’re actually putting real swatches on a website like Sephora! Usually they only have those terrible computer generated ones.

    It must be completely awesome to have your swatches in their campaign! Congrats!

    • We thought it would be a really great way to showcase the products, too! :) Thank you for your feedback!

    • Yellowlantern

      Oh, and will also be reviewing the products you swatched for Sephora? I’m a bit curious to see what you think of Tarte’s take on lipstick and if you have any opinions on the liquid eyeliners. :)

      • I have a few products (I know Hourglass Icon and MUFE #9 off the top of my head) that I had already planned to review and had the brands’ send me product for consideration, so I will be reviewing those after the campaign concludes :)

    This is way too cool – and you can drag to rearrange the swatches, if I’m not mistaken. That is also really, really cool :) I was in Sephora today looking at some of these, but most of the reds are too much for me.

    I would NEVER get a makeover in a Sephora store, their product samples are always disgusting looking… way worse than any other store, always with nasty finger prints on them or other products splashed across them and they never sanitize anything before using it on your face… at least at MAC they remove the aplicators on the lip gloss and masacaras and sanitize the lipsticks with alcohol before you use them… even then the thought of all the other people who have touched that product skeeves me out… The online videos are a nice touch though, I would definitely check those out!

    • That’s awful! I haven’t been to a physical Sephora in a really long time, but I know the last one I went to had the ends/tips cut off of a lot of products, and they seemed to sanitize when I saw things. You might want to notify Sephora of the store with bad practices! I’m icked out by almost all testers, exclusively, even ones that are maintained better, lol, so I totally understand!
