Emboldened makeup lovers, aspiring beauty trailblazers, Sephora team members—come one, come all, and share your beauty truths.

Check out our finalists!

#SephoraSquad is a different kind of beauty-influencer program.

We celebrate the most authentic and inspiring voices in the digital beauty space.

Launched in 2019, we gathered a crew of unique, unfiltered, sorry-not-sorry storytellers with a diverse range of followers, points of view, and interests.

And now, we're assembling our next squad—and searching for emboldened beauty influencers and passionate Sephora team members who share their beauty truths.

We're looking for:

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

Sound like you? Let's squad up! We're actively accepting applications for our next #SephoraSquad.
