An Orgy of Make-Up – Sephora is THE sprawling make-up mecca for beauty cultists and make-up addicts. Why should you, the average woman, go to Sephora? Look, I’m the biggest recessionista/bargainista there is, but try finding an eyeliner (that everyday essential) in a drugstore that does not smudge, leaving you with “panda eyes” or a line way up by your brow. Try finding a red lipstick that doesn’t look awful… details like these matter. There are 1,000,000s of shades of red when you think about it. And more expensive make-up lines actually spend time researching the perfect shade that looks good on every skin tone (I prefer Chanel lipsticks for red, but Sephora has plenty of other cool brands like MAC and NARS that you could try). Bottomline- some make-up items you can get away with getting at the drugstore- some you can’t.
Many would not expect Sephora to have an entire department devoted to all-natural and organic make-up and aromatherapy and skin treatments, but they do. Ole Henricksen is a particularly effective (and expensive!) European brand. Sephora has their own “Naturally Gorgeous” house brand too. In fact, Sephora offers many European and international beauty products you just wouldn’t find anywhere else.
Their Tools and Accessories department is outstanding! Where else could you find an Airbrush (spray-on) make-up system? I myself can personally recommend the Tanda (light therapy) anti-aging/anti-acne system- after even one use, your skin tone will appear more even, less red, radiant and glowing. It is not a gimmick! In fact, light therapy wands were the only thing that were able to clear up my very severe Acne that I had over the years.
Don’t forget girls, the famous saying is that “90% of Being a Woman is Smoke and Mirrors (an illusion)”. For women who don’t wear make-up- I used to be one of you… and let me tell you a little bit of lipstick (or lipgloss) and eyeliner goes a LONG way in this world in terms of attracting guys. That’s all you really need. And guys, this may all seem above your heads, but maybe Sephora would be a good place for you to go meet girls if you’re having trouble doing so elsewhere! You could always pick up some cologne in their Men’s department while you’re at it.
