You didn’t think I forgot about showing you day 2 of Ipsy’s Gen Beauty NY? I wouldn’t do you like that, girl! It’s been a busy week trying to catch up on some much needed rest after spending the weekend in the city that never sleeps. But my tired body is finally coming around and recuperating from all the excitement Gen Beauty had to offer. The first day was pretty insane and incredibly overwhelming considering it was my only my second time going. Not to mention braving all those large crowds and massive brands on my own. Gen Beauty was still a magical experience though that may have initially left me drained but ultimately inspired.
You guys have no idea how much I’d love to spend every waking moment creating new content, looks and (in the future!) videos to share with my all time favorite people. There’s nothing in the world more inspiring and motivating than knowing that there’s other makeup junkies and divas who appreciate and can relate to my passion for beauty.
When I received an email from IpsyOS for free tickets to Ipsy’s Generation Beauty Conference in LA I didn’t know what to expect besides a good time. Let me tell you. It was so much better than I expected! There were tons of brands in attendance with their own booths surrounded by some of the most beautiful and stylish people I’ve ever seen crammed into one huge space. I was like a kid in a a candy store meeting brand representatives and seeing so many friendly smiling faces. Just when I thought things couldn’t get any better I started racking up goodie bags galore filled with brands I’ve never tried but were eager to test out.
If I had to sum up this year’s Ipsy Generation Beauty LA in one word it would be, “Whoa!” It was a ton of fun but boy was it overwhelming! This was my first time ever hitting a beauty conference so when I received an email for an exclusive invite to hit Gen Beauty LA this year I nearly jumped out of my skin. Just the thought of rubbing elbows with some of the most popular beauty bloggers and vloggers had my stomach doing backflips. It was all so new to me!
Although I invited my BFFs to journey to LA with me, the ticket excluded a plus one so I showed up solo–like a deer in headlights. LA is huge and the venue where the conference took place was so confusing that I showed up super late. So late that I missed my favorite YouTuber, MakeupShayla. * cue the Kim Kardashian cry face and violins *
