I lived so close to Austin for the majority of my life and I had not experienced SXSW like I did this year! I really took advantage of the pop-ups and panels and I wanted to share a few of the to-dos! I was invited to experience the Innovation Mansion which was super cool! Not only were there panels but Michael Stars pop up with their spring line, Charlotte Tilbury makeup touch-ups, and lots of creative innovations throughout the mansion. I added a ton of content to my Instagram story as always but even that was not enough! So instead of making a SXSW Instagram highlight, I summed it up in a quick post!
Innovative makeup apps like YouCamMakeup filled the mansion! There was also a vending machine where you put in your email and you receive a random free gift! I got some earrings from Kendra Scott!
These were taken after my Charlotte Tilbury makeup was done! The picture does not do it justice! It looked beyond amazing! I also got some free products to try out.
I had to snap a quick selfie at the Micheal Stars pop-up
I also attended Create and Cultivate’s event which was so amazing as well! Both events were filled with panels and freebies of amazing brands!
There was a great schedule of panels and the panelist line up was amazing. I even got to see Tan France from Queer Eye speak about the upcoming season! You can hear the live podcast taping on the Work Party Podcast.
There were so many sponsors as well from Batiste to Core water, Roxy and Paige. I even got my hair done while waiting for panels. It was seriously so much fun! Also getting to meet Dani Austin was a great highlight of the day!
Create and Cultivate always showcases the best of entrepreneurial ideas and advice always so going to that event was a must! The line to get in was long, and rightly so as this was one of the most beneficial events for someone like me. And let me tell you there are lots of people like me!
