For the first time ever, BeautyCon is heading to the Big D, bringing with it top digital fashion and beauty influencers and their ever-growing fan bases. The day-long experience geared toward the tech savvy and socially connected YouTube generation aims to bring fans, brands and creators together in one place this Saturday, March 14 at Fair Park.
We reached out to one of BeautyCon’s top influencers, Gigi Gorgeous, to find out more about BeautyCon Dallas, the message she hopes to convey to her followers (there are over 1 million of them on YouTube), and what’s on her Dallas to-do list.
How did you get involved in BeautyCon Dallas?
I was contacted about coming to a BeautyCon event years ago, and ever since then I have been obsessed and love the support and the people who are interested in the same things as I am. It’s my first time visiting Texas and I am so excited.
You’ll be participating in the “Lights, Camera, Create: A Digital How To” panel at BeautyCon. What is your number one tip for fans who aspire to do what you do?
Be yourself, stay true to who you are and your end goal, and be consistent.
How do you think social media and online media have influenced the beauty industry?
It has helped showcase trends in today’s culture. It is also a great way to learn about new products and learn about new people in the beauty industry such as hairdressers, makeup artists, and wardrobe stylists.
What are you most excited about experiencing during your time here in Dallas?
I am definitely excited about the culture, the food, and getting to know Texas people. I love country music so I might try to go see a show, or even ride a bull!
