Try This, Not That Beauty Technique

Our beauty guru, Sara Bartlett, is who we call on to try it before we buy it. Typically she tackles beauty products, but can also show us the right technique to trash...and the one to try.  For example, if you want longer lashes, Sara says skip the falsies.

  1. For longer lashes, grow them out instead of spending time/money on applying falsies. Lash growing serums cost more up front, but will save time and money in the long run.
  1.  For dealing with 2nd (or 3rd) day hair, apply dry shampoo to your hair BEFORE bed, not the next morning. This helps the product battle oil while you sleep, so you wake up with easier-to-manage hair.
    • Try Sara’s favorite Dry Shampoo, Batiste
  1. Instead of layering, blotting and re-applying traditional lipstick, find one that stays on!
    • Try Lipsense Liquid Lip Color - it lasts at least 4 hours (often longer) and is serious business. So serious, it has an accompanying product required to remove the product!
  1. Instead of using an entire bottle of nail polish remover, use remover formulated for gel manicures
    • Gel polish remover works faster and is great on dark polishes like red
    • Sara uses Red Carpet Manicure polish remover
