Over the weekend, NYC hosted Beautycon Festival, one of the world’s largest beauty celebrations where content creators, celebrities, brands, and fans come together to celebrate the beauty of self-expression and being true to yourself. The 2-day festival was chock-full of empowering panels, Instagram-friendly brand activations, freebies (including the lipstick I’m wearing right now),  and beauty inspiration galore. Trust, there was no shortage of meticulous manes and magnificent makeup. JIC you missed these magical moments, here are all of the looks that left us mesmerized.

Cardi B

If you’re begging to know where the Please Me rapper got this chic oversized hat, that makes two of us. It makes the perfect accessory for sleek strands.

Kheris Rogers

Her beautiful complexion wasn’t the only thing  Kehris was flexin’. She also flexed in these adorable afro puff ponytails. To get the look, divide your hair into two ponytails and section them off into four sections with rubber bands. For volume, tease each section out with your fingers.
