The Coronavirus has struck on Australian shores in an unusual place, in the beauty brand Sephora’s stores.

Sephora has cancelled all of its makeup appointments across the country as a precaution against the deadly coronavirus.

There is no scheduled date for the return of bookings, and has not indicated, as yet whether or not customers who pre-paid for their bookings would be reimbursed.

Competing stores, including Mecca department stores’ makeup counters are still currently taking bookings for makeup.
