“In view of the ongoing 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) situation, Sephora would like to reiterate that the health and wellbeing of our customers and our cast is of paramount importance,” the email explains.
“All custom makeover services and makeup lessons will be suspended until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your understanding.”
