If you were in Los Angeles the week of August 22ND- 24TH and care about fashion or beauty – you were attending BEAUTYCON.
NYX Cosmetics, Style Haul, and The Platform sponsored BeautyCon 2013 making this second annual summit a success with over 10,000 rsvp’s. This past Saturday on a hot LA summer day, BeautyCon guests waited in a line that was over 3 blocks long, shutting down Gower and Sunset Blvd.
The event offered guests/fans who love fashion/beauty the ability to meet and hear some of their favorite and most loved You Tube personalities, celebrity beauty gurus, accredited stylists, fashion gurus, bloggers, pinners, instagrammers, vloggers, and celebrities speak on over 11 panels. (Please see schedule attached). BeautyCon also offered all attendees a full interactive experience with over 25 brands.

Not only did guests get to enjoy and learn about these new fashion/beauty brands such as; Bare Mineral’s, See You Monday Clothing, Minx Nails, Million Dollar Tan, Bellami Hair, Proactive skin care, but digital brands such as Epoxy, Uber, Pose, and Lulu’s. Each brand offered such clever activations with a social media twist, it really allowed the BeautyCon attendee to interact on a personal level with each brand. The night ended with the NYX Face Awards hosted by Amy Paffrath.
