Where do you all buy makeup in person? I just can't w/ going to Sephora anymore. The girl helping me knew less about makeup then I do & that's saying a lot - it's also a reoccuring issue. They're constantly overrun with kids or other chaos. I get all the external enviornmental issues & that's fine - not their fault (always) but I just want to go into a store, speak with a knowledgable adult & try some stuff to see if it looks good on me. Not Sephora's fault, I just don't want to deal w/ it.

I go to Sephora still but you could try Nordstrom! You can still test products from different brands there

Any nice department store, but then you need to know what brand you want or visit multiple counters, most of those salespeople are paid for by the specific brand

I learn on YouTube and then go walk into the store like a pro knowing exactly what I need. What’s left is just to try out the shades.

Do need to highlight that I do know how bad I sound with this complainy post - it’s truly not them, it’s me. I’m just looking for a better experience for my old self

What do you need help with? Technique or product choice?
Are you a novice to makeup (just not a makeup person but age/profession/else now requires you to wear it) or what you have doesn’t work for you anymore/need something else/etc?

I’m asking because I don’t have a place to recommend in general, I face similar problem at times but have found some ways around it over time depending on where you are at in your journey

Sephora but online. I do a lot of research so I know exactly what I want. Sephora has a generous return policy so you can always switch/return if you don’t like it. I never trust the salesperson they pretty much always recommend either the more expensive option or whatever is trending in TikTok.

An independent beauty shop or a nice department store

I usually buy my makeup in store at Sephora too. Other than that, I just order online.
