This post is sponsored by Sally Beauty. Thanks for supporting this site! (And my hair.) First things first. My hair is SO LONG right now. I’m getting it cut tomorrow, and couldn’t be more excited. *cue fanfare* Since it’s summer, I’m giving the good ol’ curling iron a rest, and enhancing my natural waves, which […]
I am a member of the Invisalign Advisory Board, and am receiving complimentary treatment. All opinions are fully my own. Since I’ve been wearing Invisalign aligners for about 4 months now, I deem myself an expert of sorts. (Cocky!) I talked about my initial experience here, but I have some new thoughts to share with you all. […]
It’s time to put on our Spring game faces, ladies. This look is easy and fresh and rosy and lovely, and here’s how to do it. Face Even out the complexion with tinted moisturizer, foundation or BB/CC cream. I used Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation in #52 on the forehead, nose, and around mouth. Apply […]
Okay, if I can do this while simultaneously taking photos for the post, I promise you can achieve this lovely, subtle cat eye!
I am a member of the Invisalign Advisory Board, and am receiving complimentary treatment. All opinions are fully my own. For realsies. Hey ho hey! I’m rocking Invisalign these days and thought I might give you the skinny on my first impressions. I’ll keep you guys posted, and please let me know if you have […]
Long hair buggin’? Check out my 10 favorite hair tutorials.
Somehow, this week turned into a beauty and skincare extravaganza. 1. First things first, I had my first facial in over a decade this week. You should probably know that facials make me completely claustrophobic. While most of you are totally blissed out, I’m usually making a conscious effort to inhale and exhale because OMG […]
On this episode of Sarah Says, I talk about my tried-and-true skincare routine that I’ve used for years. The products are a 50/50 mix of drugstore and department store brands, and I’ve had a lot of luck with them over the years. The funny thing is that since I’ve radically changed my diet and lifestyle, […]
This post is sponsored by Ricola. RIIIIIIIICOLAAAAAAAAA. Let’s take a look in my bag, shall we? (While writing this post, I thought I remembered doing something similar, and look! 2005, y’all. 8 YEARS AGO. Look at that phone! Hahaaaaa.) As you can see, my uber minimalist days of yore have disappeared, although I still try […]
Once in a blue moon, a product comes along that just steals my jaded heart. Naturally, I felt the need to make a video about it. (I was very excited in the video, hence the ridiculously flushed cheeks. Excitement + sheer fuchsia blush = Hobo Clown. Sorry about that.) The product? Well, there are two. […]
This episode of Sarah Says covers my current beauty essentials, as well as the best concealers I found from my extensive searching spurred on by this post. (Great comments and suggestions, by the way.) Master list: LORAC Pro Eyeshadow Palette Bobbi Brown Blush in Pale Pink NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard Josie Maran Creamy […]
This post is sponsored by the National Honey Board. If you haven’t noticed, it’s pumpkin season. I swear, I walked into Trader Joe’s the other day and it was like entering a pumkpin festival. Pumpkin brownies! Pumpkin puree! PUMPKIN PRODUCT MANIA. I made some treats the other day and had a little pumpkin puree left […]
So I’ve got another honey beauty recipe up my sleeve, and it’s the easiest thing ever. It takes a whopping total of 1 minute to make, and is perfect for gently exfoliating the skin or lips. (Say goodbye to dry, flaky lips for good, for reals.) Did you know that honey is a natural humectant […]
I have long sung the praises of Clinique Airbrush Concealer. I first noticed it on one of Lisa Eldridge’s videos, and immediately bought it. I figured it had to be the best, I mean, Miss Eldridge can do no wrong, right? I’ve used it for years, and I love it, I really do…it’s just that […]
Here’s the deal – I can’t rock a smoky eye. At least, I can’t rock most smoky eye looks. Anything involving black or plum or dark navy instantly transforms me into a brothel inhabitant, so I steer very clear. However, I’ve been experimenting with metallics lately, and have found a really pretty (and fairly subtle) […]
