In between lively sets by New Orleans artists and juicy interviews with music industry heavy hitters, we carved out some time to stop by P&G’s My Black is Beautiful event for all the latest and greatest in beauty—and the scoop on all the summer trends.
My Black is Beautiful is a movement that celebrates the beauty of black women everywhere, and that’s exactly what this event did. The room was filled with energetic ladies revved up for a day of pampering. Our first stop was at the Olay for You studio for some skin prep: mini-massages and consultations. Then, we headed over to the Covergirl Queen Collection Touch-up Beauty Bar. Here, celebrity makeup artist Thomas Dye treated women to a glamorous makeover, making sure to highlight summer’s hot lip color: bright pink. To round out each new look, everyone paid a visit to Pantene’s Relaxed & Natural Touch-up Beauty Bar to tame that Deep South frizz into luscious, smooth hair. And last, the ladies of New Orleans put their best smiles and styles forward with the always-in-vogue, hottest accessory—a bright white smile—at the Crest Smile Wall, where attendees picked up the latest whitening strips. Everybody walked away with some fabulous beauty swag—and a great sense of confidence for a night on the town.
