Our west coast mommy blogger Ruby, attended Beautycon this past weekend at the LA Convention Center. The 2 day event, features panel discussions, meetups, brand activations, shopping and more!
Beautycon is a beauty and lifestyle festival that brings together fans, influencers, artists and brands. Started in 2013 as a small meet up in LA at YouTube with beauty influencers, entrepreneur Moj Mahdara took over as CEO in 2015.
The event is also held in New York, Dubai, and London. It has become thee major event for beauty gurus!
Here is the LA lineup:
Huda Kattan, Anastasia Soare, Priyanka Chopra, Ciara, Kelly Rowland and Tina Knowles, Bretman Rock, Yalitza Aparicio, Jhene Aiko, Megan Thee Stallion, Manny MUA, Erika La’Pearl, Hayley Williams, Tess Holliday, Marsai Martin, Liza Koshy, Kandee Johnson, Lisa Rinna, Arianna Huffington, Patrick Starr, Marsalis Martin, Charlemagne tha God and is hosted by Jeannie Mai.
Priyanka Chopra led the fireside chat with Moj on Saturday stating the need for women to not tear each other down in an already competitive industry.
“People always ask me, ‘Oh you’re doing a movie with a female co-actor. Did you guys get along? Were there catfights?’ But when it comes to boys, they say, ‘Oh my gosh, that looks like a bromance and everyone got on so well.’ So I feel like over time, because women have lack of opportunity, we were pitted against each other,”
Singer Kelly Rowland looked spectacular in a hot pink, retro dress from Michael Costello. She had an onstage conversation with author & radio host Charlemagne tha God where she chatted about being a mom and addressed rumors of a Destiny Child’s reunion.
The best part of the event so many great brand and trying out new products! Did you know kids 6 and under can attend for free with the purchase of an adult ticket? Your welcome!
