Makeovers with Sephora

Makeovers with Sephora

A few weeks ago, we wrote about the FREE makeovers that Sephora offers, and my co-worker, Stephanie, and I took a trip down to Sephora to receive our free makeovers. You have several options to choose from: a free 15 minute mini makeover that focuses on one area (eyes, lips, eye brows, ext), a 45 minute makeover with any $50 purchase, or a 90 minute makeover plus shopping session with any purchase of $125 or more. Stephanie and I chose the free 15 minute makeover. Her focus area was her lips, and mine was the everyday eye.

We had a Sephora beauty stylist take us around the store picking out the items we wanted to use. We were asked if there were any items we wanted to try, and I also had her pick out a few items for me as well. Since I was having my eyes done, I picked a blush eye cream, liquid eye liner, and my beauty stylist also picked out an eye primer, mascara, and eye shadows to compliment the eye cream.

We then went to sit at the counters in the middle of the store, and she showed me how to make a bold every day eye. First apply eye primer, to keep your make up on all and night long. This is a tip I had forgotten about, and one of the the items I want to buy the most. You are going to have four colors: a matte base color, a white shimmery eye shadow, a dark shimmery color, and then your eye cream. Apply the base eye shadow, a more matte color, to the crease of your eyes. Then on the upper lid apply the white shimmery eye shadow. Add your eye cream on the eye lid, and the dark cream in the corner of the eyes. Blend it all together. Apply your eye liner, making sure it stays close to the eye lid as possible, and then your mascara. This creates your everyday bold eye.

What I loved about my makeover at Sephora besides the fact that it was free, was that it was very teacher friendly. My beauty stylist took me around explaining what color eye creams and shadows would look good on me, what products are best (like liquid vs. gel vs. kohl eye liner), and let me choose which products I wanted to try. When she was transforming my eyes, she explained as she went, and even let me try putting on some of the makeup myself. This is a great service if you want a few pointers, or just want to try something new. I definitely learned new things and will go back for more free mini makeovers. You can only have one free mini makeover at a time, so if you are looking to transform your look completely in one session, I would suggest buying some of the products you really like so you can receive a 45 or 90 minute session.
