My 1st Beautycon Box


Photo By

A few days ago I squealed with delight when I saw a pretty checkered box with a pink wrapper in my mailbox. EEK! My very first Beautycon Box had arrived!

For those of you who are new to Beautycon like me, Beautycon is a conglomeration of beauty gurus who inform, educate and redefine all things BEAUTY! Fashion, culture, news, makeup, hair, nails, and more are all topics of discussion… and they have conferences around the globe, complete with panel discussions, YouTube stars, and your favorite beauty brands. (I was so bummed that I barellyyyy  missed the Dallas Beautycon this year, but will definitely be going next year!!) Oh, and they also get beauty divas to curate a beautybox for each season that will give you TONS of new and neat products to try at a fraction of the cost. You can get all the deets on their website.

The reason I discovered this summer beauty box is because one of my favorite faces on YouTube curated it – Kandee Johnson! Kandee is an AH-FREAKIN-MAZING makeup artist who has a heart of gold and an upbeat attitude that makes every day a little brighter. (Seriously though… I have never heard her say or comment one negative thing on social media, which is a real breath of fresh air.) If you haven’t watched any of her tutorials on her channel, do it. It will change yo makeup game foevaaaa.
