Yesterday we had the pleasure of going out to The Beauty Buzz with all of the fabulous people. We had a great chance to hear some great tips & meet some great folks. It was a takeoff from KC Power Players & put together by Kandi Conda aka KC.
It was hosted & sponsored by Demi Lobo, who is not only a WGCI personality, but also CEO of The Lip Station, a great makeup brand. The event began with a panel, which featured photographer Jason McCoy, clothing designer Eugene Frimpong, Fashion entrepreneur Blake Martin, WCIU TV correspondent Summer Jackson, photographer Billy Montgomery, & celebrity makeup artists Sheena Marie & Julio Delgado. They spoke about their areas of expertise & how they each branded themselves. They all talked about using social media to get their brand out there.
There were some great tips about getting your brand out. Billy Montgomery said follow your passion to the paycheck & Jason McCoy insisted that none of us live boring. They answered questions & helped some people with how to get to the next level.
Following the panel was a mixer where everyone met, exchanged cards, & networked. There were also vendors there, one of which was The Lip Station. There was a raffle for Sephora cosmetics. It was an all around good time.
The Beauty Buzz was a part of a monthly gathering as part of KC Power Players, a great networking organization for anyone looking to get to the next level. We will be posting the next event as the info comes. If you are interested in joining KC Power Players go to kcpowerplayers.com
