Beauty Con LA is returning to LA July 11, 2015. As the name suggests the event is a “CON”- vention with a focus on “BEAUTY”! I was lucky enough to go last year and it was definitely one of my FAVORITE events I’ve ever gone to and I’ve gone to a LOT of events!
You may be asking yourself “What is BeautyCon?”
BeautyCon is a fashion and beauty conference where some internet’s biggest, most influential beauty and fashion YOUTUBERS and bloggers can meet and interact with their followers. BeautyCon also has happened in London, New York and Texas.
I had so much fun that I want you to know why you should attend Beauty Con this year. I have to say the organizers of BeautyCon really understand us. They know what’s important to us and what makes us crazy. If you go to their website and check out the FAQ’s, you’ll know what I mean. They know we want to take selfies and not have a company take our pics and post them on a website later. They know we need lots of bathrooms and charging stations. They know our moms or dads aren’t going to want to or be able to pay for the more expensive tickets and they allow them to pay for the GA tix and enter early with you .
The venue is actually small enough and safe enough that if you’re like 13 or older, you’ll be fine just hanging out with your friends.
If you aren’t ready for that, parents can get in with a GA ticket and kids under 6 are free.
Here’s the top 5 reasons you should go to BeautyConLA this year!
1 Meet your favorite YouTubers, Bloggers, Beauty Gurus, content creators in a relaxed, fun atmosphere.
If you’ve ever been to DigiFest or VidCon, you know how crazy and unorganized those events can be. At Beauty Con, you will get a wristband and depending on if you have a platinum pass, pro pass or general admission you can line up at specific places and times and meet awesome people like, Teala Dunn, Amanda Steele, Patrick Starrr, Manny Mua, Meghan Rienks Jennifer Veal, Aiden Alexander and tons of others.
2. You will get tons of Give Aways, Swag and special deals.
There will be over a 100 vendors and sponsors at Beauty Con. They will have their merchandise at booths and have demonstrations, special deals and samples to give away. Some booths also have raffles and games to win bigger items! Some of the vendors will offer mini makeovers or manis.
3. You never know who you’ll run into!
Even though I had a blast at the meet and greets and panels I just happened to run into Maddi Bragg, Johnny Sequoyah, Brooklyn and Bailey and their mom from Cute Girl Hairstyles!
They were all so sweet and chatted for awhile. Meeting them this way was even more fun because we weren’t rushed in the meet and greet line.
4. Panels and Q and A’s
In addition to the meet and greets, and vendor booths, some YouTubers, bloggers content creators will participate in panels. In 2014, Bethany Mota, Kelly Osbourne and others talked about issues that affect girls like bullying and self esteem.
After the panel, Bethany took pics with us.
5 There will be Live Entertainment and tons of fun!!
Last year, Rixton performed in an outdoor area and met some fans. This year, the outside area will be transformed into a carnival type area with food trucks, a twisty slide, Ferris wheel and they will have a “secret” performer.
Check out the awesome companies who are sponsors for this year’s event!

The event will be at The LA Mart in downtown LA July 11, 2014.
There’s plenty of parking and you can also get there using the Metro line.
I love this event and the organizers and I know you will too. I hope a lot of you can come and if you see me there, say “hi”!
