I love empowering events that help entrepreneurs and especially women entrepreneurs. That’s exactly what Glambition ’18 was! As one of the guest said to me what’s not to love when glam and ambition are combined? The event was held at the gorgeous Google NYC Headquarters in Chelsea. The day was full of powerful speakers and businesses with innovative products and services. The event started with delicious light refreshments and a chance to network with the beauty businesses there. Here is what else this great event had to offer!
Exhibitors and panel speakers included the following:
The life insurance company educated the various age ranges at the event on this topic that many feel nervous about. The educational talk taught me among other things that you can start your life insurance savings at any age even at a few months after birth!
With a background in acting Vera saw first hand the struggle makeup artists had in finding makeup that was suitable for people of color. With a new-found passion, she set out to create cosmetics that would not turn greasy, rub off or change colors when applied. Her years of experience have gained her many accolades not only in the beauty industry but in acting, publishing and business.
Jane Carter herself was at the event along with her well-known line of hair products. Catering to women with curly hair her line has products for every type curl.
Founders of the Cosmetology and Beauty Chamber of Commerce were also in attendance giving great business advice. The commerce offers education, guidance and create opportunities for those looking to grow in the cosmetology and beauty arena.
With a focus on health, wellness and beauty Salud offers all natural solutions to everyday needs. I was recently featured in a YouTube video for Salud and wrote a blog post on why I use their products. They were also showcasing a most delicious tea!
Created by model Kim Baker, Glamazon Cosmetics caters to all women who want coverage and color variety within their makeup. Originally a model for Whilimenia she like Vera Moore has full knowledge on the struggles women of color have with makeup. Glamazon Cosmetics liquid lipsticks are one of my go to’s as their longevity is reliable.
Known for bold colors this NYC start-up had everyone saying ohh and ahh to their Matte and Glitter Palette. Another ingenious invention by Celfie? The lipstick with a light built-in and mirrored cap! And as one girl exclaimed “perfect for the club!”
Swisse– Australia based Swiss offers vitamins and supplements that are loved by Nicole Kidman and many stars alike. I’ve started taking their Blood Orange Hair, Skin and Nails dietary supplement. The drink contains only orange extract, Silica that promotes hair growth and Vitamin C which can help prevent sun damage to the skin.
Faces Beautiful– This vegan makeup line showcased their Face in a Case magnetic makeup organizer. Not only does the case hold makeup but it doubles as a wallet and cell phone holder. Carrying makeup in a messy bag is longer necessary!
Model Citizen– A rental, lending and shopping platform that allows you to share your great fashion finds.
Cocotique-A deluxe subscription box curated for women of color.
Minfo– An app that allows you to scan or hear an ad and directs you to the company website immediately. No need to wait to hear the ad again to catch what you missed!
Speakers also included C-Suite Coach creator and Google Digital Coach Angelina Darrisaw, Editor-In-Chief of Bella Magazine Courtenay Hall, Hello Beautiful editor and Model Citizen creator Daniel James and Google’s Strategic Partnership and Program Lead Aisha Taylor. While I got the chance to lead the Blogger Round Table speaking about the goodies in our swag bags.
