If there's one makeup store that mixes accessibility and luxury, it's Sephora. Founded in France in 1970, Sephora has since become a worldwide sensation; nowadays, it operates over 2,500 stores across 32 countries. The first United States Sephora was opened in Soho in 1998, and Sephora.com was launched in 1999, bringing Sephora's unique style of beauty to all Americans, regardless of whether they live near a Sephora store. You can also use the Sephora app to access everything that Sephora has to offer. It's an incredibly wide-reaching brand with lots to offer the customer, and whether you're a complete newcomer to the beauty world or you've been putting on a full face of makeup every day for decades, Sephora wants to help you get your perfect look.
If you love shopping at Sephora, make sure you're signed up for the Beauty Insider club. Beauty Insider is free to join, and as soon as you join, you'll start earning points that you can exchange for rewards. Spend more to get more. At $350 in a calendar year, you'll become a VIB, which will let you earn more points and receive more rewards, and at $1,000 in a calendar year, you'll become a Rouge member, which gives you even more points, rewards, and savings. Members also get access to beauty services and classes, as well as the online Beauty Insider community. Because it's free to sign up, it's a good idea to create an account before your first purchase.
Sephora has always been involved in numerous charitable efforts related to its goals. Sephora Stands, the company's charity, supports female beauty founders, provides specialized beauty training for major life transitions, and supports Sephora employees going through hard times. It's partnered with over 500 nonprofits and plans to have helped 100,000 people to attend its Classes for Confidence by 2020. Whether you help by getting the word out about Sephora Stands items, buying items that contribute money to Sephora Stands, or researching some of the nonprofits that Sephora has partnered with, these charitable movements are a formative part of what the company stands for.
