Serious question. How many times have you gone to Youtube to watch a make up video to perfect your wingtip eyeliner game and emerged from the Internet four hours later with the skills to be a beat-face goddess? If you have, congratulations, not many people can call that mission a success.
The only thing better than getting lost in the world of Youtube DIY beauty videos is experiencing that content IRL at the Beautycon Festival and VH1 is going to be there! Beautycon is the place of your beautifying dreams. What else do you call an event where new America’s Next Top Model judge Ashley Graham will be among the many celebrities speaking on body positivity and the magnificence of defining your own beauty?
Graham made history as the first plus-sized cover model on Sport’s Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue this past February and gracefully slayed the runways of AdditionElle’s New York Fashion Week presentation, so we know anything she has to say about confidence and body image is going to be pure gold.
The daylong festival is coming to New York this weekend (October 1) and will feature panel discussions, meet-ups, and make-up tutorials centered on beauty, fashion and culture. Your favorite celebrities, Youtube personalities, bloggers, and brand influencers will host the event. If getting glam intel from the likes of Nadia Aboulhosn , Bethany Mota , Basketball Wives LA’s Draya Michele and Orange is the New Black’s Dascha Polanco isn’t enough there’s more. There will be panels throughout the day and we can only hope that EJ Johnson , Drew Barrymore and Kelly Rowland are going to be speaking.
We can’t wait to see you at #BeautyconNYC where all of your fave celebs, beauty trendsetters and brands will all be under one roof. Be sure to get your Beautycon tickets here. See you there and don’t forget to stop by our America’s Next Top Model booth at Beautycon!
