Essence, had its first Essence Beauty Carnival event this past weekend April 27th-28th in NYC. It was a time for beauty influencers and wellness experts to come together to answer beauty and life-related questions. There was also a chance to indulge in shopping experiences and take photos with props and more.
There was so much to interact with, with one of their significant sponsors being Aveeno. There were also many different panel discussions. Including embracing beauty marks, curvy women, securing the bag and caring for your curly hair.
Some of the celebrities that were present included Ciara, Dapper Dan, Misa Hylton, Sevyn Streeter, Yandy Smith, Jackie Aina, Justine Skye, and no other Icon, Iman and more.
There were food trucks and goodies that were given away during the event, but the best was to get to experience so many black entrepreneurs and black women striving for self-care and beauty.
