Sephora has long been the fix for beauty junkies nationwide. Why are people hooked on Sephora? It's simple. Sephora selects amazing makeup brands to sell in its shop, from small women-owned companies like Tarte, Bare Escentuals, DuWop, Laura Mercier, to the big names like Dior, Lancome, Clinque, & Shiseido. Sephora is akin to being on Rodeo Drive & having an assortment of small boutiques to choose from.

3 Reasons That Will Make You Want to Own This Book

Life's hectic! Women not only have all the responsibilities of life, but we want to look good doing it. This book provides insider information that will benefit your makeup routine without having to buy Sephora out.
