THE FEARLESS TOUR

"Sephoria: The Fearless Tour" is an experiential campaign designed for the Sephora.

Our The Fearless Tour campaign comprises an interactive beauty space activation and social media engagement that supports the journey to self-love. Through embracing all forms of differences, the campaign and activations go beyond the surface to explore the multifaceted side of beauty within all.

Messaging

Our central theme is SELF LOVE. Most of our initial interactions with beauty products were rooted deep within the search for self-acceptance. So, "Look", "Feel", and "Be" are the three significant stages carried through the campaign that also shape who we are as the fearless ones, from appearance to mindset.

Main message:

Becoming the fearless one. 

Supporting message:

Not afraid to look, to feel, to be.

Call to action: 

Join SEPHORiA's The Fearless Tour to connect, explore and celebrate with a community of beauty lovers.

Visual exploration

The color palette is inspired by the transition from dawn to dusk, from orange, teal, to violet, reflecting the theme of the campaign based on a journey of growth.

Social media campaign

1. Pre-game

Prior to the event, people are introduced to The Fearless Tour for the first time through  our Instagram story, where they could unlock the first stage in the story, "Look", to post the "I look" filter. The goal is to make the audience feel excited and curious about our storytelling while beginning to think about the meanings of self-expression and self-love. Subsequently as the event starts, the next two stages, "Feel" and "Be", will be introduced.

2. At SEPHORiA: House of Beauty

Throughout the event, attendees are encouraged to share beauty moments and strong messaging using hashtags we created at each activation. The goal is to receive positive media engagement and coverage.

3. Post-game

Attendees can enter the "What's your most daring look" challenge included in their swag bag by posting their look using #sephoria #fearlesschallenge. This allows users to stay active after the event has ended.

Narrative

Unwrapping our first concept of self-love and self-reflection, "I look", is to give everyone a chance to explore a look they wish to try in a judgment-free zone. "I feel", encourages you to feel the power behind your look and to love yourself from outside to inside. Finally, "I am", is to accept ourselves and others, to embrace our differences because this is what makes us beautiful 

The journey of being fearless is also a spiral journey looking inward for self-love and confidence.

Floor Plan

Inspired by the shapes of galaxy swirls, we designed a floor plan to reflect the ongoing journey traveling inside out, outside in. There are multiple photo opportunities, game booths, and socializing space in the three sections revolved around the central themes of "Look Daring", "Feel Daring", and "Be Daring". We want our audience to have a holistic experience in this immersive "playground".
