Welcome to the real world. Where pretty much everything costs money.  If you don't want to spend money on a professional makeover, find a friend that's good at it to do it for you or do it yourself.

I agree - find a friend who can help for free or learn to do it yourself. There are so many great tutorials available on the web now.

Ya they will. I've seen transgender employees so I don't see why they wouldn't. But I live in LA where it's more embraced than maybe other places like the bible belt.

You may want to check in the below threads pertaining to this.

The general consensus is that Sephora as a company does not discriminate; however, that doesn't guarantee that employees may or may not express their own personal feelings on the matter should a transgender client requests a make over. 

 

Should you experience any discrimination (and this goes for any shopper) you can share your experience with customer service, management, or a Moderator here on Beauty Talk (they can forward messages to the appropriate departments).

I am pretty sure Sephora does not discriminate against transgender clients.  In fact, at my store, there is a transgender rouge client who comes in for a scheduled makeover every single Sunday (rouge clients get free makeovers).

You don't have to pay for the makeover, that's free, but you are required to spend at least $50 the day of your appointment at most stores. You can request the look you want and I'm sure whoever helps you will answer any question you ask, but remember…most of the employees are NOT professional make up artists. Some might be great and some might not give you the look you want, it's luck of the draw really. Give yourself enough time to wash your face and redo your own makeup if you don't like the look. It's a 45 minute appointment so they won't generally have time to do it over if you are unhappy.

If you do go in and pay the $50, do they teach you how to do what they did? Can you request the look you want?

To get your makeup done at Sephora,  you must by a minimum of $50 worth of product.

I do makeovers or preps for these type of occasions. For a fun funky look I would charge about $35, but I do hair and all. I think the Sephora offer is a great deal if your $50 goes to a Sephora gift card. I would be willing to do that myself. HAHA Have fun at your concert!!!

HI Googoo13,

 

I recommend contacting your local Sephora Store to see what their policy is on makeovers.  It is a plus that Sephora cast members do not work on commission.:smileyhappy: I hope you have fun at your concert!

A Full Makeover consultation requires a minimum $50 payme...

A Full Makeover consultation requires a minimum $50 payment. You should call your local Sephora location and confirm an appointment rather than showing up on the day of your event. That way they'll be better at catering to all your makeup needs and be expecting you. The $50 is basically put into a Sephora GiftCard, which you'd use on whatever products you want to. During the consultation the castmember will give you ideas on skincare and makeup. You can try out different looks and products and ask any beauty related questions you might have. The best part of this service is that you'll learn what works best on you and you won't be rushed and clueless with all the options at Sephora. The $50 seems like a lot, but technically since it's on a giftcard you don't have to spend it all on that day. And you're already a loyal Sephora customer- they know you'll buy products there anyway.

 

BTW, most makeup counters give makeovers for a price- Usually they say that makeovers are Free (with a purchase). Even at MAC, when they do a makeover you're expected to spend on a product. They don't technically tell you they charge a fee for makeovers, but it's expected and proper to make a purchase (it doesn't have to be expensive, it could be a lipgloss or liner, however much you want to spend) when getting a makeover done.

 

All Sephoras also have Free Services, but they're limited to one beauty item being done. For example: Foundation matching, Smokey Eyes, Lips, Skincare. Each of these are free since it's only one beauty concern and any castmember can help you to do any of them.

 

Have a great time at your concert :womanvery-happy:

Hi googoo13! You'll need to call the store directly for information about the services they provide and to schedule an appointment. Have fun at the concert!

 

ps. Sephora Castmembers do not receive commission. :smileytongue:

I'm pretty sure they don't charge, but the work for commission and expect you to buy something.  I think one product they use on you should be enough maybe get the lipgloss if you like it because it won't last all night.
