Setting a #StrongFoundation for your day with Neutrogena

Foundation, probably one of the most important elements of your makeup routine. How do you choose the right shade? And, how do you apply it? We teamed up with Neutrogena® to ask 15 Latina Beauty Bloggers those questions, and we got their tips and tricks for flawless foundation application in the process. The bloggers started by visiting the Neutrogena® site and taking the Shade Finder Quiz, which helps you find the right shade of Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup, Nourishing Long Wear Makeup, and SkinClearing Liquid Makeup for you and now incorporates the brand’s NEW shade extensions: Honey, Caramel, Cocoa and Chestnut.

#WeAllGrow Field Trips Inspired Moments of Awe

#WeAllGrow in Long Beach, CA
#WeAllGrow in Long Beach, CA

#WeAllGrow Summit started with several magical Field Trips filled with enough moments of awe to last a lifetime. Dolphins included!

Our sponsors were so excited to meet everyone and connect with the influencers who have been killing it online (Yes, you!). Several of them joined us in organizing an unforgettable day of tours, sightseeing, relaxation and a few mimosas! Because everyone knows you can’t have a fab day without a bit of champagne. #WeAllGrow sponsors also know that the only way to create long-lasting relationships is by illustrating the mission behind their brands with meaningful experiences, which are rooted in empowerment, cultura y familia.

Neutrogena

Select attendees were treated with a cruise to the Catalina Islands for a day of beach-front relaxation, a healthy, beautifying lunch, refreshing mimosas, and yoga under a gorgeous sunlit sky (with SPF, of course!). With scenic views in every corner and a beautiful dolphin sighting to complete the day, Neutrogena’s #VerasQueEsPosible mantra came to life.

Transitions + VisionWorks

Transitions and VisionWorks kept the day stylish with a fun tour of Los Angeles with hosts, celebrity eyewear designers Coco + Breezy! Attendees learned all about the twins’ humble beginnings in the eyewear industry and connected over a delicious vegan Mexican lunch at the popular LA restaurant, Gracias Madre. Coco and Breezy set the tone for the rest of the day as they DJ’d from their phones on the tour bus and danced with attendees as they headed back to the studio for their very own photoshoot with Transitions + VisionWorks. Latina bloggers and creators were treated to a styling session and finished off their look with a chic pair of Transitions lenses from VisionWorks, perfect for their professional street style photoshoot.

Long Beach Conventions and Visitor Bureau

As if the #WeAllGrow Summit and Latina Bloggers Connect teams didn’t suffer enough FOMO (we had meetings in lieu of trips), a group of over 40 attendees got to take in the beautiful sites of our host city, Long Beach. They started the day off with a boat tour that revisited the history of Long Beach’s scenic harbor. They were able to sit back and chat with each other while enjoying a breathtaking view of the city’s skyline and world famous Queen Mary. Shortly after their boat tour they headed to the Museum of Latin American Art located in the East Village Arts District of Long Beach. While there, Latina Bloggers had the opportunity to view MOLAA At Twenty 1996-2016 Exhibition, an extensive collection of U.S. Latino and Chicano art. A short bus ride over next led them to the Aquarium of the Pacific for a delicious lunch with a view and a VIP behind-the-scenes guided tour of the aquarium. Lastly, it wouldn’t have been a true tour of Long Beach without visiting the historic Queen Mary. Attendees wrapped up their daylong tour of Long Beach with a guided tour of the legendary ship.

Disney Parks

Disney Parks celebrated 60 years of magic with #WeAllGrow Summit attendees! Guests explored both Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure and enjoyed rides like Star Tours and Radiator Springs Racers. Rides were followed by a beautiful day listening to the Mickey Mouse marching band and #Disneyland60 celebrations throughout the park. The day ended with a group photo of all the bloggers and creators that attended this fabulous field trip.

YouTube

There’s nothing quite like visiting the YouTube Space in Los Angeles to really bring the power of its influence to life. #LatinaCreators were excited to see and experience the place they’ve virtually known and loved for so long! Guests were once again blown away by the size of YouTube Space LA and the amount of resources available to those who wish to create a channel. Many came back from their trip ready to step up their game by perfecting their SEO, upping their video content and making better use of YouTube’s analytics to further understand their audiences.

Mazda

Mazda knows that #DrivingMatters, especially when you’re cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway. Attendees drove down Ocean Drive to Huntington Beach Pier in style in the brand new CX-5 before heading to the award-winning Parker’s Lighthouse for a seafood lunch in Long Beach. The day ended with a tour of the beautiful and culturally rich Museum of Latin American Art.

3 Tips to Protect Your Skin From Sun Damage

Did you know one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime? The numbers are alarming and with summer right around the corner, NEUTROGENA® is asking all of us to #ChooseSkinHealth. Skin cancer is the most common kind of cancer diagnosed in the United States, there are more skin cancer cases in the US than the combined number of breast, prostate and lung cancer. Wether you are inside or outside, more morenita or super fair, you have to take care of your skin! No matter where you are or how you look, sun damage doesn't discriminate. We invite you to be mindful of your skin and find sun protection that fits your needs and your estilo de vida.

Our #LatinaBloggers reviewed three of NEUTROGENA®'s sun protection lines Ultra Sheer®, CoolDry Sport and Wet Skin.

Remember to protect yourself all the time! Hats, long sleeves, la sombrita are your friends; and when using sunblock 3 tips from our #LatinaBloggers to keep in mind.

Lola Blue Style "Protect with SPF! Be sure to apply your Neutrogena® sun protection about 30 minutes before going out to enjoy the gorgeous weather, this way you make it a routine and it comes second nature."

More than a Beauty Blog "Apply sun protection often if you are swimming and constantly rubbing on a towel make you sure to reapply at least every 2 hours."

#WeAllGrow Summit Keynotes and Sessions

The first full day of the #WeAllGrow Summit started off with Kundalina yoga and meditation with Siempre Mujer Editor-in-Chief and yoga instructor, Cristy Marrero. Sponsored by GAIAM, the session’s intention was designed to center the body and mind on growth and possibilities. This powerful ode to self was followed by a delicious breakfast and tea. Nourishing the mind, body and soul was the perfect way to start a very full day of learning and sharing. #WeAllGrow Summit

Following the principles of Kundalini Yoga, Cristy Marrero shared the 7 basics steps to achieve happiness in the first keynote panel of the day titled “A Celebration of Growth.” We learned about her inspiring travels, work relationships and her life-changing aha moments. Joining Cristy was mother and a multi million-dollar business entrepreneur Natalie Boden, who shared her journey in parenting, her cultural beliefs and personal growth. It was a powerful, eye-opening hour inspiring attendees to seek happiness, learn the art of acceptance and find the stillness and courage within to realize their dreams.

#WeAllGrow

Immediately following our Keynote speakers, the stage lit up with  Emmy Award-winning TODAY Show producer and New York Times best-selling author, Alicia Ybarbo, who moderated the panel titled “Bringing the Social to Media”. The talented panel included Marines Duarte, family & lifestyle expert for Univision; Alexys Gabrielle, broadcast journalist, television host, and social media influencer; Jeannette Kaplun, award-winning journalist and TV personality; Andrea Minski,  journalist and TV host; Gaby Natale, media personality and celebrity blogger; Kika Rocha, former fashion and beauty director of People en Español.

#WeAllGrow

These super Latinas shared how they transitioned their careers from traditional media to the digital world, how losing their safety nets opened new opportunities, what it takes to come to this country and succeed without understanding the language and how to achieve your dreams no matter the obstacles.

#WeAllGrow Summit

What does LA bring to the table like no other place can? The Media! What is the #WeAllGrow Summit about? Connections! Attendees were also given the opportunity to show off their elevator pitches to latinamom.me, Baby Center, Siempre Mujer, Ser Padres, MiTú Networks, NGL Media, ChicaFresh.com, TapInfluence, CafeMom and Univision tlnovelas. Set up like a speed dating session, preparation was key, time was limited and there was only one chance to make a lasting impression. No pressure!

#WeAllGrow Summit

In between empowering keynotes and career-changing meetings, Vive Mejor spoiled attendees with massages and manicures in the Expo Hall. While some picked out their nail colors, others created personalized lockets with Origami Owl just a few tables away. The Expo Hall was all about individuality, bonding and heartfelt moments … and of course a giveaway! ScholarShare was there as well and hosted a contest for chance to win $250 towards a college savings plan.

#WeAllGrow Summit Neutrogena

Noon crept up quickly and it was time to eat again. But it wasn’t just any meal. A keynote lunch hosted by Neutrogena at the LINE Hotel ala Roy Choi can only mean one thing - Superb dining! Michelle Freyre, General Manager of Neutrogena, joined us for a very candid presentation about her experience as a Latina in a leadership role in the most leading skincare and beauty companies within the Johnson & Johnson family. She also made a very special exclusive announcement and introduction - Mexican actress and singer Eiza Gonzalez is to become the new Neutrogena ambassador for both general and hispanic markets. Eiza shared her love for Neutrogena products and talked about her life in the spotlight since childhood and her life-long enthusiasm for Neutrogena products. Congrats, Eiza!

The magic continued on the 12th floor with mimosas, cake pops, stylists, facials, music and lovely beauty vlogger and hostess Dulce Candy at the Neutrogena suite and Social Media Sanctuary.

#WeAllGrow Summit Neutrogena

Needless to say, everyone looked and felt like they just stepped out of the salon during the conference. Even with a packed house, the stylists did an amazing job getting everyone dolled up and feeling great. Decorated with white drapery and luxury sofas, the sanctuary was a coveted room for stopping by to relax in between panels. The sessions were rich with information and tools for building businesses and creating brands.

#WeAllGrow Summit

Brenda Cisnero of Mejorando Mi Hogar, Denisse Icaza of Ahorros Para Mama and Divina Rodriguez of Dancing Hotdogs shared tips and tricks for scoring major deals both on and off the blog.

Whether you’re a newbie or veteran, Daily Baez of Daily Curlz, Pattie Cordova of Living Mi Vida Loca, Cindy Limon and Roxy Limon shared their personal journeys, experiences and insights for creating a successful and fulfilling vlogging career. If you’re just starting out, make sure you explore the Creative Studio option on YouTube to get the most of your channel!

With so many a-ma-zing Latina food bloggers, it’s not a conference (or a blogosphere!) without them.The invaluable information that was shared during the food styling workshop led by Clara Gonzalez of Dominican Cooking, Meseidy Rivera of the Noshery and Ericka Sanchez of Nibbles & Feasts had everyone clinging to their every word. From what cameras they preferred to what each thought about a certain styling or photography technique, attendees asked all those questions they’d been itching to get an answer about. No one wanted to leave the room! After all, who doesn’t love a beautifully styled food photo? The foodie love didn’t end there, the session that followed included a panel of food bloggers turned authors: Morena Escardo of The Everything Peruvian Cookbook, Pilar Hernandez of Comer rico: Del blog a la mesa, Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack of Muy Bueno Cookbook and Vianney Rodriguez of Latin Twist. This panel of respected recipe developers inspired attendees to get out there and materialize their recipes into a beautiful book

The panels continued throughout the rest of the day with a little something for everyone. Whether you’re more of a traditionalist when it comes to blogging or prefer to take your story outside of the blog, you were covered.

#WeAllGrow Summit

Ismerai + Annette of LoveLuxeCo, Maya Murillo of Maya in the Moment, Angie Ramirez of Little Inspiration and Daniela Ramirez of Nany’s Klozet talked about their Vine and Instagram techniques. From perfectly curated images to what appears to look like candid moments and videos, all are carefully executed with consistency in mind. These platforms are given the same attention to detail as their blogs. Guest were encouraged to use their own authentic voice and noted that it’s good to be inspired but in the end people are going to know if it's genuine or not.

Taking things even further from the blog to TV and print was the next topic led by Bren Herrera of Flanboyant Eats, Jeannette Kaplun of Hispana Global and Mercedes Sanchez of Be Chic Mag. This powerhouse panel talked about the highs and lows of getting your voice out there and your talents noticed. A little bit courage and belief in yourself goes a long way. But no matter how good you are at what you do, good writing skills are key in getting the right people to notice you. No one knows that Maura Hernandez, editor of Latinamom.me and Lorraine C. Ladish, author and founder of VivaFifty. Attendees were given tips for improving grammar and what editors are looking at when reviewing their work.

Guests spent the rest of the evening taking it easy, dining at the hotel and exploring Los Angeles. Another full and exciting day was ahead, including breakfast in bed, sponsor suites and the much anticipated Storytellers session!

#WeAllGrow Summit LA Field Trips and Opening Reception

With so many people traveling to Los Angeles for #WeAllGrow Summit from all over the country (Canada, Mexico, Colombia and Dominican Republic, too!), we wanted attendees to really get a taste of our awesome city. But not just any taste. We wanted everyone to really get a feel for the city’s rich culture, history, diversity and hidden gems. To make this happen, the first day of the Summit was completely dedicated to the exploration of Los Angeles. the LINE hotel #weallgrow summit Attendees got to choose one of four options, which all included the world of art, history, technology, business strategies, photography and delicious local cuisine.

Car Free LA with the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of LA? The beach? Hollywood? Traffic? There is so-much-more to this city and we wanted everyone to enjoy it as much as we do (sans the 405, of course!). The Los Angeles Tourism board prepared a field trip for us to explore Downtown Los Angeles on foot. We simply hopped on the L.A. Metro from Koreatown to Downtown, and spent the day like locals. Our first stop was the Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA), where we got to see extraordinary works of art from artists like Jackson Pollock and Jean Michel Basquiat. This museum has a serious collection of modern and contemporary art and sits just a few blocks away from a Frank Gehry favorite, the iconic Disney Concert Hall. After perusing the MoCA galleries, we walked to Grand Central Market where we ordered lunch from an array of different dining options - favorites were Eggslut and Sticky Rice, followed by G&B for amazing cafecito. After lunch, we spent the rest of the afternoon touring Downtown Los Angeles on a double decker bus!

grand central market #weallgrow summit Going Green + Fun Under the Sun with Neutrogena

Los Angeles is filled with yogis, vegan foodies and juicing fanatics, so it’s no surprise that Neutrogena decided to plan a fun day under the sun (with plenty of SPF!)  filled with exercise, fitness, health and skincare tips. The invigorating day started at Hollenbeck Park where we were greeted by the Neutrogena Team along with Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Tanya Kormeili and Gloria Baraquio (Yoga Director at The Springs LA). While we prepped for our yoga class, Dr. Kormeili shared everything we needed to know about skin protection and the life-saving steps we can take everyday to keep our skin safe from harsh UV rays.

neutrogena #weallgrow summit After working up a sweat, we hopped on our bus and headed over to The Springs LA, which is a massive wellness center that includes an organic juice bar, a raw vegan restaurant/wine bar, a yoga studio, a holistic healing center and a pop-up shop all under one roof. They seriously have everything you need to live a well balanced and green life. While we were there we were given a tour of the kitchen and learned about cold press juicing, water conservation, detoxification and indulged in some of the best vegan food and cold press juice in Los Angeles!

From Dinosaurs and Gems to Popular Art, Capture Your World at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County

We fell in love with the staff at the Natural History Museum. Checking out their extensive collection should definitely be on anyone’s must-visit list when traveling to Los Angeles. We took a lot pictures while learning that T-Rex may have had feathers (What? He was a large bird?) and that you do not want to ever get caught red-handed in the museum’s gem vault. Ever.

nhmWe also got to relish in the beauty that is Latino culture with the beautifully curated exhibition Grandes Maestros. From silver artifacts to woven tapestries, the exhibit brings together hundreds of folk art masters from across 22 countries to showcase modern culture, religion and traditions through a celebration of beauty and power. The museum stroll was followed by a delicious lunch at Yxta Cocina. Because no day is complete without amazing tacos!

Vive Mejor Presents an Inside Look into Google

Anyone who went on this trip can tell you that getting a job at Google seems pretty ideal. In fact, some even said that you have all you could possible need right within reach. The amenities, the nearby beaches, the cafeteria, the Juice Bar and free coffee were enough reason to just call it home. Oh, and did we mention that the building aka “Binoculars Building” was originally designed by Frank Gehry? The attendees were given the grand tour of the space along with lunch and a huge dose of inspiration. After all, you can’t enter through the grandiose sculptures of Claus Oldenberg and Coosje van Bruggen and not want to dream BIG.

google #weallgrowsummit After a full day of exploring, attendees were dropped off at the LINE hotel with plenty of time to register at Neutrogena’s hospitality station and a grab a cup of cafecito with friends at the cafe.

neutrogena #weallgrow summit There was also plenty of time to unpack, get comfortable and get dressed for the #WeAllGrow Summit Welcome Cocktail pool-side reception with Vive Mejor.

#WeAllGrow Summit #ViveMejor Vive Mejor outdid themselves with delicious cocktails and h'orderves created from their own special list of fabulous recipes. It was the perfect welcome to what was about to be an amazing conference.

Neutrogena is the Exclusive Title Sponsor of #WeAllGrow Summit 2015

Neutrogena -- #WeAllGrow Summit Title sponsor When Latina Bloggers Connect started back in 2010 we had no idea exactly how far that vision would take us. We knew we were on to something and we knew we were breaking ground within the Latino social media space and making a difference in the lives of many mujeres.

But it was when we started collaborating with brands like Neutrogena that it felt like real growth. In many ways, Neutrogena helped LBC grow and through them we were able to nurture a community of bloggers and influencers looking for original, creative and successful ways to partner with brands they love.

It's been almost four years now and we've worked on close to twenty campaigns and events together.

Now, we can thank Neutrogena for once more believing in us and, most importantly, in the power of you. Neutrogena wants to grow with you at #WeAllGrow Summit 2015 as the exclusive Title sponsor.

We couldn't be more thrilled to count on their continued support and partnership.
