Hello my beautiful loves! I'm back today to share with you all my amazing time working with ESSENCE for their College Tour! In my previous post I announced that the ESSENCE College Tour's first stop would be at Hampton University and had invited me to come out to talk about all things beauty and share my experience with you all. Let me just say that I had a blast! ESSENCE literally set up shop by allowing students the opportunity to indulge in beauty from sponsors: Cantu, Ultra Sheen Supreme, and ESSENCE Beauty Box! It was so cool to receive complimentary nail art, get flash tattoos (you know I love those!) and hair products. There were also cupcakes, free ESSENCE Magazines, a LIVE DJ, and I worked alongside ESSENCE.com hair and beauty editor Deena Cambell for a live beauty chat! Our beauty chat was a 15-20 minute discussion of how students could stay chic on a budget. My main tip: decide what it is that you absolutely need when it comes to beauty. Your essentials. Skip what you don't need, which would have you spend extra money. Here I am with the ESSENCE College Ambassador Asia Milia Ware and Essence.com beauty editor!
You definitely missed a treat if you weren't able to attend this event! I had the best time talking with some of the students about hair care, my favorite beauty items, and how to stay chic for less. I also enjoyed the music of the DJ! The entire student center was lit! OH and get this: Mack Wilds gave us a sneak peek of his new movie presented by VH1 'The Breaks'! Very down to earth! So happy I was able to meet him!
Don't worry if you missed out. The ESSENCE College Tour's last stop will be at Maryland University November 6th! Be sure to check out http://www.essence.com/college-tour-2015 for more information! Thank you again to ESSENCE for having me as guest blogger!
