When I was asked to attend Beautycon NYC, I was more than thrilled. I was excited about the opportunity to hang out in New York with close friends, but I was also anticipating seeing some of our favorite vloggers and bloggers on the Uniquely You panel moderated by my favorite Rich Hipster (and friend), Chrisette Michele. Here are some of my favorite moments from Beautycon NYC…
The Uniquely You panel consisted of Frankie Grande (@frankiejgrande), Whitney (@naptural85), Angel Merino (@mac_daddy), Taren Guy (@tarenguy), Alba Ramos (@sunkissalba) and Mariale Marrero (@Mariale). Each of the panelists was amazing. What stood out most for me was how each panelist spoke about the importance of individuality and freedom of expression. In a time that’s completely saturated with social media images that negatively affect the self esteem and expectations of the younger generation, it was refreshing to see these influencers represent the free at heart. The overall message was refreshing.
The perks of Beautycon NYC were extraordinary! I walked away with an incredible gift bag filled with goodies from NYX Cosmetics and Velvet 59. The bags were filled with everything from lip glosses, makeup brushes (ten), eye shadows, contour kits, concealers and more. I especially love the brush set from NYX and the amazing matte liquid lipstick in Gigi by Velvet 59. Thanks to all the amazing sponsors. I can’t wait to play in my spoils.
What’s a trip to the big apple without wonderful friends? A huge “thank you” to Chrisette for allowing me to hang out and watch your greatness! I had an awesome time. You are the moderator of all moderators! Krystal, you are a complete joy. I can’t wait to see you girls again. :~)
Hope you guys enjoyed my wrap up. Be sure to register for the next Beautycon. Who knows, you may see a familiar face… ~xxxooo
