For those of you in the US… Happy Labor Day! I hope you’re all doing something fun. It kind of crept up on me so unfortunately, I didn’t have anything special planned. It’s all good though, because I finally had the time to put everything I have from BeautyCon together to share with you all. BeautyCon was such a unique experience. I’m so glad I was able to make the trip down to LA and I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
Everything about BeautyCon was hectic! It was just such a huge rush of adrenaline trying to meet everyone and make it to all the panels, which was pretty much impossible. I think Karen and I took the “let’s just wing it” approach and it turned out pretty well for us actually. There were just so many things to do and see. I could literally spend hours on hours talking about it. You can only imagine how hard it is for me to condense everything into a blog post right now, so apologies if I end up being all over the place! You can check out my vid below if you’re not in the reading mood.
We didn’t really know what to expect from the event when we planned on going. We assumed it would mostly consist of speaking sessions. This was already interesting to me because I could listen to successful bloggers/vloggers talk about their experiences. But along with the panels, there were so many things to do and all for free! There were four floors and each floor had something different to do. There were freebies, photobooths, free food/drinks and so much more. Amy Pham was DJ’ing on The Platform’s floor. On other floors, you could get your nails done, hair braided, makeup done. There was a rooftop lounge that overlooked Hollywood. And I’m sure there were so many things I didn’t get a chance to see or experience.

I liked their fancy security badges.

Loved this! The prettiest braids courtesy of the Toni & Guy braid bar.
The best part about BeautyCon was, of course, being able to meet some of my favorite bloggers/vloggers in fashion and beauty. I think that was just such a surreal moment. I had only seen these people on a computer screen. Being able to meet so many of my fashion idols in person, all at once, was pretty overwhelming, especially when meeting a “legend” like Wendy. I was definitely fangirling.
Anyway, I’ll end this post here because if I keep going, it will take me days to write! If you have any questions for me about BeautyCon, feel free to leave a comment below and I’ll get back to you!
