DO wear a fun outfit, complete with colorful makeup and crazy nails.
DO network with other bloggers, Youtubers, and makeup lovers alike.
DO bring a friend for moral support — I brought my PR guru, Jenn with me. She does publicity for beauty brands and fashion. You can reach her HERE.
DON’T bring your husband or boyfriend. They will be miserable, and it’s crowded enough without having to fight your way through bummed-out dudes. It’s $40 a ticket anyway, what a waste!
DON’T bring your baby, or his/her stroller. Please see above. And may I add that every baby I saw there, no matter how cute, was distressed from being in the crowds and crying. Give your kid a break and leave him/her with a grandparent at home.
DON’T bring a jacket, or wear thick, heavy clothes. That place was a sauna! So many people packed into one place.
