Last weekend, BeautyCon, in partnership with Elle, hosted the first-ever BeautyCon New York at Pier 36. BeautyCon, is the leading summit for top digital fashion and beauty influencers, and their ever-growing fan base. Notable attendees included Joe Zee, Jay Manuel, Kandee Johnson, Coco & Breezy, Johnny Wujek, Dulce Candy, Carli Bybel, MakeupByMandy24, Fleur De Force, Weylie, Jesse Metcalfe, Cara Santana, Whitney Port, and many more. The day-long event consisted of panels with leading content creators, a dance party led by DJ Kiss, and interactive photo booth experiences. Participating brands at the event included Tarte Cosmetics, Bare Minerals, NYX Cosmetics, Revlon, American Apparel, Überliss, Coco & Breezy, StyleHaul, Crown Brush, and many more.
BeautyCon provided a great opportunity to network with online fashion and beauty trendsetters and to connect with influential brands. One of the panels called Diva: The Female Version of a Hustler was very insightful on how female trendsetters are building their audiences and making a statement, along with advice on what tools the rest of us can use to make our own impact. What a powerful and valuable event!
