  • 🚨CUTENESS ALERT 🚨 Our offices were taken over by our baby bosses-in-training last week for #BringYourChildtoWorkDay 👶, sponsored by Sephora’s Working Moms Group! Between weighing in on important meetings, playing in a lego lounge, and creating works of art, there was no shortage of fun! And in true Sephora fashion, we offered our future VIB Rouges glam stations for face paint, glitter tattoos, hair braids, and fresh manicures! Because that’s our #SephoraLife 💋
