Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

Hi! the virtual makeup tutorials are the same ones from when they started..can you get some different/more looks in there?

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

@JGSFLA LOVE THE CALL OUT! I for sure will mention this to the Digital team ASAP! Stay tuned, maybe a collabo is in order?!?

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

Hi Hi Hi! Thank you for hanging with us today, I have to get my question in before we run out of time. I have a few makeup newbies/ teens in my family who I would love to gift a palette to. What would you say is the best eyeshadow and/or face palette for someone who is just starting to experiment with makeup? Thank you in advance Smiley Happy 

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

@BrendaBT Hey there Lady!

 

I feel like a PERFECT shadow for someone who wants a Goof Proof option that is Easy and Fun to learn with, might I suggest Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam. The colors are so dream and romantic and practically perfect for any skin tone. This is a go-to for my kit and a must have for any makeup artist! It's so versatile as well, so it's the perfect way to learn how to Glam up the eyes!

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

Hey Beauty Directors!!! Love your family photo up there. I have a lot of friends on my holiday shopping list who are big sparkle fans - what's your favorite high-shine, super-sparkly highlighter right now?! (Okay, also asking for myself - not just my friends).

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

@AlexBT 

 

I feel the same way about SPARKLE! I think this is the 3rd time I'm shouting these babies out! If you want GLOW the GO-TO is Artist Couture for SUUUUURE! 

 

The Diamond Lights Finishers give the last bit of reflectivity in photos and give a wet appearance! OBSESSED!

 

ARTIST COUTURE - Diamond Lights Finisher

 

If you are wanting something a little less bling-y, maybe try the Diamond Glow Powders instead.

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

What would be the perfect red lipstick for a date night? I need something which is transfer proof and something that can stand spaghetti slurps Smiley Happy (I mean to say it should not bleed, fade ,etc.) Thanks!!!

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

Honestly a Set-In Lip Stain is my FAVORITE formula for date night because the color sinks into the lips and becomes "a part of you." Look to formulas like Benefit's Benetint, YSL Glossy Stain Lip Color, or Dior Addict Lip Tattoo. What's even better is that if you apply lip gloss on top of these it doesn't really mess with the durability. Glossy lips on a date are WAY more kissable than ultra matte ones. IMO.

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

What would you get a male friend that isnt fragrance based or has fragrance in it? 

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

I’d definitely go with skincare . Men love good skin just as much as women , and often have a hard time fo Dinh the right products to use , I think THE ORDINARY - The Daily Set is a simple 3 step routine any guy can master. 

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

Hi! I'm partial to fragrance that is not gender specific. Right now, I'm really enjoying Tom Ford's Ombre Leather. I think of jeans, red heels, a black leather jacket and of course a bold red lip when I wear it. Any suggestions/favorites for fragrance this Holiday/Winter season? I adore you guys! 

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

@bem564 

 

If you love Ombre Leather and instantly think of a power Lips, then MAYBE you might try "Lipstick On" from Margiela as well? *wink wink*

 

MAISON MARGIELA - ’REPLICA’ Lipstick On

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

Definitely check out Replica by Madison Margiela , all the scents are gender neutral and based on memories. I think you’d like the classic MAISON MARGIELA - ’REPLICA’ Jazz Club it’s amaaaazing scent for anyone !! 

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

I use Differin at night, and I have a rich cream moisturizer. I also deal with sensitivity (e.g., eczema) I'm wondering if you have any thoughts/recommendations on an oil or serum that I could use with the Differin to help with lingering dry patches? 

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

I would definitely recommend SKINFIX - Eczema+ Dermatitis Face Balm it’s amazing at eczema prone skin. In fact they have a whole collection for Eczema and dermatitis that is really amazing and worth checking out!! 

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

I am looking for a nice lip product for myself. I want something that is not too bright, but something that will add just a little but of color to my face. Also that is easy and hydrating.I normally dont wear a lot of makeup and when I do I stick to neutral eyeshadows. What types of lip products would you recommend?

CRUISING for the WIIIINN! I LOVE THAT COLOR @DavidBD 

Re: Holiday 2019 Office Hours with Sephora's Beauty Directors

Hi friends - thanks for hanging out with us today! I do a couple yearly gift exchanges with friends and family with a price limit of $25 and $50. Any recommendations for $25 and $50 skincare gifts that would be good for any person, regardless of gender and age?
