Preparing yourself for the sale
So you’re all pumped for the big event, checking out all the palettes and skincare products on the site and adding them to your cart. While you may be a tech-savvy millennial yourself, here are some additional tips for you to make sure you get the most out of the sale.
If you’re not sure whether you can rock a smokey eye or red lip, download the Sephora app on your device and use the in-app Virtual Artist. The Virtual Artist has a multitude of options for you to virtually play around with different makeup looks. You can try on different lipstick colours, eyeshadow shades and even false lashes, so you know which items best suit you.
When it comes to makeup for your face, the Shade Finder is an amazing tool. All you have to do is enter the brand, product and shade of the product you’re currently using. You’ll then be presented with the matching shade for the foundation, concealer or tinted moisturiser you’re interested in.
For the ultimate hack, book a Virtual Beauty Consultation with the experts from Sephora before the sale. During your one-on-one Zoom call, you’ll be able to ask all your burning skincare or makeup-related questions and get personalised recommendations. After the call, add the items to your wishlist, and get ready to add to cart once the sale starts.
But say you’re not the type to make big purchases online, and prefer to check the items out for yourself. The Sephora store locator helps you find your nearest Sephora store, so you can plan your route there and make a beeline for your shopping escapade.
During this sale period, all Sephora stores will have extended opening hours from 10am to 10pm. Whether it’s before brunch, after dinner or any time in between, you’ll have more than enough time to check out the deals IRL.
