With the amount of money (read: thousands) Lisa Barlow spends on her glam, she’s going to make sure that her squad is always on call.

In a new episode of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, the businesswoman and mom, 48, disclosed the jaw-dropping $60,000 a year that she spends on her hair and makeup services.

“I get my makeup done daily. My makeup artist is on retainer," Lisa revealed, referencing her right-hand MUA Morgan Fay. "It's not just when I'm on girls' trips, it's not when I'm hanging out — it's for me to go to the grocery store." 


Barlow’s willingness to dish out five figures on her appearance alone comes from a place of wanting to feel confident.

"The one thing I love control over is the way I look,” she said, after her costar Whitney Rose proposed that they strip off their makeup to participate in a “drag-inspired makeup competition” hosted by Trixie Mattel for the show.

As the episode played out, Barlow made it clear that her decision had nothing to do with the RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars season 3 winner. "I think Trixie is amazing,” she shared.

The only thing holding her back from going makeup-free was that she’d already spent $2,500 on Fay’s flight and pre-scheduled glam session. “I'm not doing it. I like to look a certain way when I'm out in public,” she further explained on why she wasn’t as keen on looking over-the-top.

In the end, Barlow showed up to the game with bold eyelashes and a pink lip. Although the Housewives were less than enthusiastic about the look, Barlow believed she was the real winner of the competition because, as she put it in a confessional, “I get to look like me.”

Fashion is also something Barlow invests in — even if that means she doesn’t always have her high-end pieces on hand (quite literally).

An episode aired earlier this month saw Barlow losing her $60K ring in an airport bathroom while she and the cast flew to Palm Springs ... and chaos ensued.

“I’m hiding in the bathroom because Lisa’s gone completely unhinged. She came out with her pants half down screaming about having lost one of her rings,” Heather Gay said.

On the other side of the stall, Barlow’s voice can be heard screaming, “Oh, my god! John [her husband] is going to kill me!”

“My ring — it is totally gone,” Barlow said later in the sneak peek. “I am pulling up my jeans and I feel my ring start to slip off my finger. And I felt like I caught it, and then I looked and I’m like, ‘Oh, my gosh, my ring is missing.’ I literally stayed in that bathroom for at least 45 minutes. What a s--- way to start this trip. I still can’t even believe this just happened to me.”
