My day at beautycon

I woke up at 7am to get ready for this highly anticipated event. I left my house at 8:30 and got to Hollywood at 9:15.  As we drove in front of Siren Studios my jaw dropped. We were 45 minutes early and there was already a line. I thought it ended at the end of the block but I thought wrong.  People were lined down four blocks 45 minutes before the event even started. And so the day began. We finally found our space in the line and waited. And waited. And waited. We waited for one and a half hours and had probably taken 30 steps. My dad, friend and I got impatient quickly listening to the high  school dating stories that the ladies in front of us were telling.   I searched the Internet and finally found VIP Beautycon badges for sale. Only 3 left! We quickly bought the passes and ran to the front of the line. 

Once we got in the doors and signed in, we eagerly got in the elevator and went up to the second floor.  

There were so many booths and new products. The event was sponsored by NYX, Stylehaul, YouTube, BareMinerals, Lush and others.  I had a great time visiting the tables and testing out the products. I met so many nice YouTubers such as Kandee Johnston

Krazy Ray Ray 


 Carli Bybel

 and Rebecca Black

The booths handed out samples and I won some products and even got some to review for you guys.
