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

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

Launched in 2019 in the US and in 2020 in the Middle East, we are now on the hunt to gather a crew of unique, unfiltered, sorry-not-sorry storytellers with a diverse range of followers, points of view, and interests. We are searching for emboldened and passionate beauty influencers and Sephora lovers who share their beauty truths. We’re looking for those who believe that:


Beauty is strength.
Beauty is community.
Beauty is acceptance.
Beauty doesn’t judge.


It’s inclusive. It’s addictive. It’s disruptive. It’s Sephora.


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