9 More Reasons to Use Dry Shampoo

DRY-SHAMPOO-BEAUTY-EDITOR

There’s no end to the dry shampoo conversation. Not a week goes by that someone doesn’t ask me about it or I don’t tell someone that IT’S TIME to get on the bandwagon. Not because I don’t love that wool beanie you’re wearing but because dry shampoo is just that good. It’s not going to REALLY restore your hair to its original blow-out form, but you will get at least another day to sleep in, not shampoo or avoid looking disheveled in a way you weren’t intending. I am loyal to a lot of products but dry shampoo isn’t one of them. My beauty closet is full tall ones, short ones, expensive ones, cheap ones, spray ones, powder ones. I don’t discriminate as long as they work. One Love Organics’ is a current favorite because it’s all-natural and travel-friendly, but I also rounded up the best of the bunch over at Ebay where you can shop to your heart’s content. I’m not being dramatic when I say you can’t go wrong with any of these. To read the full post, head on over to my Ebay dry shampoo guide.

A Bright New Year

By this time of year you’ve probably exhausted your wardrobe, grown tired of your makeup, and never want to pull on a pair of wellies again. Time for a refresh! I’m over at eBay with a few gold, black and glittery (the classy kind) pick-me-ups. There’s something about a rich, neutral palette that’s so subtle yet intriguing, don’t you think? Shop on . . .

Nude Lipstick is the Answer to Everything

nude-lipsticks I’ve decided. Nude lipstick is the answer to everything. Well, at least in terms of beauty. Okay, sometimes bronzer may also be involved. BUT. If you’re not feeling festive enough or pretty enough or your favorite dress suddenly doesn’t look quite right but everyone is waiting for you in the car (ummmmm), the answer, sweet peas, is nude lipstick. It’s modern. It’s chic. It makes every outfit look better. People will probably ask you what lipstick you’re wearing so be sure to find a nude that brightens up your face, not makes it look like death warmed over. Oh, you’ll know. But it may require a bit of experimentation first. To get you started, I’ve pulled together a few of my favorites over at eBay, where I once bought a limited-edition MAC pinky-nude lipstick from Canada for $50 because it was sold out everywhere. Like I said, nude lipstick. P.S. Check out my other buying guides for ebay, where I like to shop and often write about it.

Talking Beauty + Style with eBay

A big thanks to Nina and the editors at eBay for including me in their Style Stories series! I normally hate talking about myself but they had no shortage of fun questions. Pop on over for a look-see into my shopping habits (hint: stripes) and hedonistic ways. You already know my red lipstick pick!  –Bets

    ABOUT BETS
    Born and raised in Minnesota by surprisingly low-maintenance parents, beauty writer and lifestyle editor Elizabeth Dehn (aka Bets) spent her awkward years buying Mood lipstick and whipping up DIY face masks before founding Beauty Bets in 2009 as a way to share candid product reviews and real beauty advice for smart women everywhere. When she’s not test-driving the latest beauty treatment (bee venom facial, anyone?) or serving as the beauty editor for Mpls. St. Paul Magazine and ClementineDaily.com, Elizabeth can be spotted running the Minneapolis Lakes with her white lab, Molly Thomas, or sipping champagne on a killer patio. Pass the sunscreen.
