BeautyCon and ELLE partnered up over Labor Day weekend to have the first ever New York BeautyCon summit. The summit brought together top digital fashion and beauty influencers, as well as their fans, at the trendy New York venue, Pier 36. BeautyCon and ELLE’s partnership in New York kicked off the 2014 BeautyCon event series, which will also take place in Los Angeles, Houston, and London throughout the year.
BeautyCon offered attendees a day long experience, which focused on the tech savvy, socially connected world that makes up the online beauty community today. From interactive presentations, panels, performances, shopping, games, and meet and greets, there was something for everyone to do at the event.

And we are excited to work with BeautyCon, a first-mover in the important blogger/vlogger space,” said Kevin O’Malley, Senior Vice President, Publisher & Chief Revenue Officer of ELLE.
