All Full Sephora locations offer Makeup Consultations, this service costs $50 (it comes in the form of a giftcard). You should call your closest location and make an appointment. It’s best to call prior to going to the location in order to confirm an appointment, that way you’ll rest assured knowing that they’re expecting you and you’ll have their undivided attention during the consultation. During this consultation, they will ask you questions about your daily routine, makeup/skin concerns and what your interests are (in terms of looks/style). Through this questioning, they will help you choose your ideal makeup and skincare needs. They’ll try out different looks on you and gladly teach you to do them yourself. Then at the end of the consultation, you can pick and choose what you’d like to purchase (this is what the $50 fee is for, if you purchase over $50 worth of the makeup then you’d pay the additional cost). This is a great service because they do a complete makeover, and you can learn techniques from them and have questions answered without being rushed.
Also, All Sephoras have free services available, but they are only for either a lip, eye or foundation match. These services are free and they aren’t as in depth as the $50 Makeup Consultation is because they are only for the specific things I mentioned.
Also, if you don’t have access to a Sephora location, then you can always go to a Department store or MAC store and have a makeup consultation done as well, they don’t technically charge you for a makeup consultation, but you’re expected to purchase some form of makeup that they used on you.
