September 15, 2023, LOS ANGELES - Ahead of the triumphant return of Beautycon™ 2023 to its hometown of Los Angeles from September 16-17, Award-Winning Artist, Beauty Enthusiast, and Trendsetter Kelly Rowland has just been added to the already stellar lineup of talent, influencers, and creatives. Kelly will hit the Beautycon™ main stage for a fireside chat on Sunday, September 17 to provide attendees with some motivation from her personal beauty diary and journey, moderated by Essence Ventures President & CEO Caroline Wanga.

“Beauty has always played such an integral role in both my personal and professional life — and it’s been incredible to watch how the landscape has shifted and changed to be more inclusive for all. Beautycon™ is building a safe space for open and honest conversations where individuality is not just welcomed but celebrated, which is so important to me. I look forward to sharing the stage for Beautycon’s triumphant return in LA.” - Kelly Rowland

The refreshed two-day celebration, under the new ownership of Essence Ventures, is bringing together a lineup that will have attendees immersed in the world of beauty, fashion, culture, and entertainment. Taking place in a more intimate setting at The Reef and with a keen focus on influencers, creators, and consumers, Beautycon™ is aiming to curate a more personal experience, where attendees feel connected to the talent and brands they love.

The 2023 programming will highlight new, emerging, and popular influencers and creators at the forefront of beauty with thought-provoking panels, intimate meet and greets, musical performances, and more, including:

The all-new “Shop Beautycon Live” (SBL) will bring shoppers the best of the best in all things beauty products. Hosted by Sophia Dennis, Head of Programming for Beautycon™, each episode will feature product demos, reviews, and special discount codes for our SBL viewers.
