Come one, come all, and share your beauty truths.
Join the #SephoraSquad.
Your Passion,
Our Megaphone

#SephoraSquad is a different kind of beauty-influencer program. We celebrate the most authentic and inspiring voices. We prize unique, unfiltered, sorry-not-sorry storytellers, no matter the number of followers they have.

If those values sound familiar, they should! As a Sephora team member, you bring them to life every single day. Now’s your chance to broadcast your expertise and contagious enthusiasm on social media. We’re offering long-term partnerships— a paid contract through April 2020—to those who share their beauty truths.

Those who shout their triumphs and their struggles. Those who’ll try any trend once and not think twice about it. Those who leave heart emojis and thoughtful replies.

Sound like you? Let’s squad up: We are actively accepting applications for our 2019 #SephoraSquad.

To apply, Sephora team members must:
Have worked for Sephora for at least six months
Have an active Instagram account
Show a true passion for beauty
