BeautyCon NYC 2014

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending BeautyCon NYC 2014, which the organization describes themselves as "a fashion and beauty summit for the internet's most influential and everyone who's obsessed with them."

At Pier 36, there were booths from brands such as Bare Minerals and Tarte, beauty vlogger meet-ups going on at various spots, a large tent where panels were going on, VIP/Pro Zones, and a NYX Talent tent. Almost all brands were giving away free goodies, but waiting in line for almost an hour for a free mascara or over 2 for a free foundation (even though I am bummed I skipped out on that) just wasn't worth it for me.

I would say my highlight of the day was being able to chat with Joe Zee, ELLE Creative Director as well as have a mini-mentoring session from Emily Dougherty, ELLE Beauty & Fitness Director as well as Ali Finney, ELLE Beauty & Fitness Editorial Assistant. It was amazing to be able to meet some of those whose footsteps I hope to follow in one day.

Overall, I think BeautyCon was a great experience and I hope they come back to the East Coast next year!
