Sephora SPF Campaign

Sunproof your look


Creative concept and campaign production for Sephora’s SPF Campaign.


Sephora engaged Long Story Short to create an innovative, onmi-channel campaign for Australia, New Zealand, and South-East Asia.

The Video

For the campaign's video, it was important our concept focused on the idea that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to incorporating SPF into your routine. Bringing this narrative to life, we leaned into the newspaper theme, with talent captured with copies of The SPF Daily and breaking the news: You don't have to choose between sun protection and makeup perfection. During post-production, LSS oversaw the voice-over, copy and edit, and the development of an original soundtrack.

The Rollout

We worked closely with Sephora to develop a design toolkit – including campaign lockups, colour palettes, font treatments and graphics – which were applied to Sephora's digital space and retail environment. Our collaboration included rolling out six weeks of content for the Sephora website, Google Display Network, Affinity eDMs, Instagram, Facebook, and more for Australia/New Zealand and South-East Asia.
