Because we work in the beauty industry, it's pretty much a given that we know nearly every trick in the book when it comes to makeup, skin, hair, and the like. As obsessive product-triers — and sometimes, reluctant guinea pigs (all in the name of beauty, people!) — editors also receive some of the most outlandish beauty tips you can think of. And we try them, too.
