Generation Beauty by Ipsy 2016
This year I had the privilege of attending a major beauty event. Generation Beauty by Ipsy in L.A. It was such an amazing experience! I also got to meet a lot of awesome people. It was an event filled with so many people that shared the same common interest. It was a two day event filled with beauty enthusiasts, make-up professionals, vendors, bloggers, youtubers and a lot of fans!! I attended with another youtuber, BeautyStyleSpirit. I was most excited just to have the experience and be able to say I attended, but what I got out of it was much more!
I could not believe all the free products we were able to get. Yeah, the lines were insane, but having someone there to help distract you from the wait, is so worth it. While we waited in line we got to meet so many people as excited as we were. Although I wore flats, that still didn’t prevent the achy feet from standing all day. Ask me if I’d do it again and I would say, “heck yeah!!!” The satisfaction we got after all was over was so worth it. We received full size products as well as deluxe size products. All worth over $556.00
I have to say though, the highlight for me was seeing all these people that I am used to seeing on my tv, Instagram or even Snapchat. I follow them almost on the daily and they share a lot of their personal lives, which makes you feel like they are your friends. Only, they don’t know you or know anything about you (which I feel makes it weird). It was very surreal. One particular person I met the first day had such an ease to her. She was genuine and warm. It was WhatwouldLizzydo, I literally felt like we were old time friends. I follow her on social media and her youtube channel as well as her vlog channel, so I know a lot of what she shares. She made my experience even better than I had ever expected. The cutest part was when we were leaving, heading to our car, I was standing out in the intersection waiting for the light to turn green, she passed by in front of us and she rolls down her window and stuck her head out to wave goodbye. How cool was that!!!
