Beauty gurus, makeup, hair, and taco trucks…
Beauty Con LA was a pretty incredible experience for all of the ADD Hunnies. It was our first time attending the show, we didn't really know what to expect. As the Beauty Editor for ADD - hell yeah, I geeked out. I felt like a little girl in candy land, hypnotized by all things beauty.
We walked inside the Staples Convention Center in complete disbelief of how long the lines were. There were so many females in line stylishly decked out and patiently waiting to be greeted by the "Hello, Beauty" entrance.
The first thing we grabbed was our Beauty bag which had tons of products ranging from hair chalk, coconut oils, different lippies, bubble bath soaps, facial creams, eyeliner, brow palettes and MORE. The bag was an insane surprise and surely well worth more than the ticket itself.
After the bag, we walked outside and in perfect timing - heaven appeared. There were food trucks! Of course, we headed straight to the taco truck. The lines filled with hungry beauty goers. Soon after the tacos, we went back inside center to do our rounds of beauty vendor hopping.
We met some familiar and new brands, including an organic tampon company called Conscious Period, who had us reminiscing on the first time we met "Mother Nature". There were influencers who were there to share their stories on how they have been able to capitalize their brands in the beauty industry. We met also met familiar faces, including my personal favorite makeup artists - @makeupbyshayla and @iluvsarahii. (They were just as gorgeous in person, as they are through social media.)
We missed Tyra Banks (still sad about that), but were completely overwhelmed with the experience of Beauty Con. There were so much going on and plenty to explore. By the end of the day, we were completely tapped out. It was well worth the air miles to experience Beauty Con. Highly recommend all beauty lovers to indulge and attend at least one Beauty Con. Catch the next festival on October 1st, 2016 in NYC. Book your tickets here!
