Today is the first edition of a new series of posts I’ll be posting each week called Makeup Monday!! I will basically be sharing a beauty product with you on Mondays, it may be a product I own, wish I had, makeup tips, etc…anything makeup/beauty-related will be Monday’s topic. I’m really excited!!
Last October I got to go to my first beauty event where got to see & meet many of my favorite YouTubers–some were KandeeJohnson, BellaPepper53, LifeLoveGlam, MakeupLand2011, MissGlamorazzi, DulceCandy87, BlondyCandy, Afrobella … and last by certainly not least, Youtuber now Beautylish Community Manager Jasmine J. also known as JazzieBabyCakes…
Now you’re probably asking, where in the world did I get to meet so many of these wonderful people?!…and in one place!!… well none other than The Beauty Social!! I had a blast! Last October I got to attend the very first annual Beauty Social, a 2-day event held in Santa Monica,CA Loew’s Hotel by Founder of Beautylish.com Nils Johnson.
Both days were jam packed with amazing guest speakers ranging from beauty bloggers, to magazine editors, to celebrity makeup artists, makeup company founders, some amazing brands and new product booths to test and try. Some of these awesome people were Billy B. professional/celeb makeup artist, Ning Chao Beautylish Beauty Director, Indie Lee founder of her all natural beauty product line Indie Lee, Hazel Walker Vice President of NuboNau.com, Jenny Frankel founder of CoverFX, Sabi singer/songwriter/actress, Jeffrey Paul celeb makeup artist, Ying Chu beauty/health director at Marie Claire, Siobhan O’Connor and Alexandra Spunt authors of No More Dirty Looks, inspiring young girl Claire Wineland from Claire’s Place Foundation, Maggie and Annie Ford the Brand Ambassadors of Benefit Cosmetics, Kelly Beckett who helped host the event … all of them and so many more wonderful people were there.
One of my favorite aspects of this event, was that not only was it an enjoyable event to meet & greet all these wonderful people who share the same passion not just for outer beauty but also inner beauty. On the last day of the event, Kandee Johnson spoke, and ever since I’ve been more of a fan. She is truly such an amazing and wonderful person to listen and speak to. Wish I would’ve recorded her final speech to share with you all!! It was inspirational and simply awesome!
