BeautyCon is a fashion and beauty summit for the internet's most influential beauty and fashion icons and their ever-growing number of fans. This was the first time BeautyCon took place in New York City, previously its been held in Los Angeles and London. The venue was filled with a ton of content creators and celebs for a day of networking, mingling, talking industry news, discussing the future of online media and participating in panel discussions and Q&A's. There were thousands of attendees participating in interactive presentations, watching performances, shopping, playing games, learning about new products and interacting with some of the internet's most popular beauty icons like Dulce Candy, Kandee Johnson, Whitney Port, Amanda Steele, Rachel Martino, Joe Zee, Gigi Gorgeous, SunKissAlba and many more!
There were also a ton of amazing brand partners such as Elle, NYX, Too Faced, Boohoo, Uberliss, Tarte, YouTube, bareMinerals, American Apparel, Maybelline and Revlon just to name a few. Some of the brands were giving away free products while others sold their merchandise at discounted prices.

Thank you to bareMinerals for gifting me with the new pure brightening serum foundation and brush! I can't wait to try it!!!
Whitney Port in the flesh! I loved when she said you need to create your own opportunities because that's exactly what I've been doing since day 1!!!

All smiles with Yessenia Ramos from Beauty Beyond Fashion. Isn't she adorable?
What can I say about Joe Zee, Creative Director of ELLE Magazine?
He's AWESOME! So down-to-earth and inspiring.
Overall, I had a great time learning about brands I wasn't familiar with, sampling products, listening to some of my favorite influencers speak during the panel discussions and mingling with other bloggers. As a dreamer I truly believe that anything is possible as long as your hunger is real and you stay true to yourself. And that's exactly what BeautyCon was all about! I definitely left feeling positive, happy and accomplished.
It truly does take a lot more than a pretty face to run a business.
Ready for some hustling tips from the panel of ladies that have made their dreams come true by putting their brains to work for what they really want.
The panel discussion I had been looking forward to all day - In Your Own Skin: Being Yourself(ie) all because of my inspiration, Dulce Candy!
This gave me life!
