Beautycon Dallas

This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the 2nd  Beautycon festival held in Dallas, Texas. Beautycon is the premiere destination for all things beauty, fashion & lifestyle related where brands, content creators & fans get a chance to discuss important issues pertaining to the industry. This year there were several brands on site such as NYX cosmetics , Tarte, Maybelline & shea moisture where I bought a beautiful bag with personalized calligraphy (See it here). I purchased the hauler package which allowed me early access into the lifestyle brand exhibitions prior to the general public. I received a commemorative laminate & a “swag bag” full of goodies. Talent featured at the festival included grav3yard girl, makeupshayla, jackie aina, & missylynn to name a few. Overall Beautycon was a great experience & if you are a makeup & beauty enthusiast I highly recommend attending.

  1. Hey,
    I was thinking about attending a Beautycin event. I watched from afar on MakeupShaylas’ snap. Seems like a fun day event!

      Hey Jamesha! Yes it was a great event I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves makeup and the whole beauty industry. If you get a chance to check one out I would encourage you to purchase one of the packages that will allow you early access into the festival that way you can get the most out of your experience before it gets too crowded.

    Hi Jessie,

    I have a question regarding the T-zone… I suffer with oily skin. What can I use, or do to help keep the oil off my face and in the bottle? (That was a joke) but, I’m in desperate need of help when it comes to having a oily face all the time… Please help!

      Hey Auntie! I too suffer from oily skin, so I found that by using the Clean & Clear Essentials Deep Cleaning Astringent after washing my face has helped tremendously with controlling how oily my face gets throughout the day followed by a gel moisturizer like the Neutrogena Hydro Boost has been a game changer for me. Also using oil blotting sheets throughout the day will help keep the oil at bay too.
