mySkin meets the Top Beauty Bloggers at HBA 2010


Everyone at mySkin was very excited to attend the Beauty Bloggers panel event that was hosted by Mary Palmieri of HBA’s Honest Beauty Blog during the HBA Global Expo 2010. We had the opportunity to meet our favorite beauty bloggers, Nadine “Jolie” Haobsh, Shannon Nelson, and Lianne Farbes.

These top beauty bloggers shared invaluable tips with aspiring bloggers and advice on how product manufacturers can work with bloggers. Nadine shared that the hook to making her blog special is to share a little bit of her life with her readers or as she called it, “lifecasting.” Loved that concept! Shannon was also very insightful and shared really helpful tips on SEO, such as naming pictures in your blog with the name of the product featured vs. a generic “image001.jpg” name. We also loved Shannon’s tip that Twitter is where you find your influencers and Facebook, is where you find your consumers. So very true!

mySkin had a chance to talk with the panel afterwards and they are just as nice in person as they are online! We walked away with renewed respect for our beauty blogging heroes, Nadine, Shannon, and Lianne!

The Beauty Bloggers panel was one of the highlights of an exciting and exhausting week of beauty at the HBA. We were so excited to meet everyone at the conference. It was so much fun to talk to everyone who stopped by to try the mySkin skin analysis tool. Check out the video of the panel below.
