Find yourself spending over $50 on your regular Sephora trips? Stretch your dollar(s) and get a full makeover with your purchase at no extra charge. You can even call ahead and schedule a Custom Makeup Application (or CMA) before your next big event! Plus, you can usually take home samples of the products they use on you, so you get even more out of your purchase.

The beauty-obsessed know that our lifestyle is one that harbors many pressing questions and concerns. Luckily, VIB Rouge members have access to their own beauty concierge hotline. Sephora's "beauty advisors" are just a phone call away, and they have the answers (or product recommendations) for all your beauty woes.

Sephora newbies, VIB Rouge members, and everyone in-between have access to free 15-minute makeovers—no purchase or membership required! The mini-makeover will include one part of your look, such as foundation or eyes, rather than a full face. This is a great way to see how Sephora products work on you and to learn new application techniques from an expert.
