Saturday saw the first ever BeautyCon London, and the HQhair girls just had to go down and check it out! For anyone that hasn’t heard of BeautyCon before, it is an annual conference for beauty fanatics, digital creators and influencers in the beauty industry… basically our dream event!
Throughout the week running up to the highly anticipated event, our Twitter and Instagram feeds were filled with posts about how excited everyone was and which amazing bloggers were going to be attending, and we were not disappointed. Tickets in hand, we headed down to London and made our way to the Olympia. Before we even entered the building we could hear the tunes blaring and it instantly felt like a party.

The hall was filled with stands from our favourite beauty brands including Eylure, Elegant Touch and Red Carpet Manicure. After sweeping through the stalls trying our hardest not to buy everything in sight, we headed over to watch some of the panels, where our favourite bloggers including Fleur De Force, Beauty Crush, Essie Button, Fashion Filth, Caroline Hirons, Claire Marshall, Amelia Liana and Hello October took to the stage to answer our questions. The bloggers gave advice on everything from starting up your own blog/YouTube channel, to how they get their legs so shiny and smooth!
After buying more goodies than we could carry, and listening to the bloggers answer BeautyCon’s questions, the only thing left to do was to have a quick chat with them ourselves. We met the gorgeous Leanne Lim-Walker, whose amazing mermaid hair had us mesmerised for the rest of the day. We chatted to Claire Marshall and Amelia Liana who were having so much fun meeting their followers. We spoke to the lovely Caroline Hirons about how she balances her YouTube life and family life, and we grabbed the super cool Alexa from Fashion Filth for a catch up too!
