Lauren Whitney is CBS4’s star meteorologist in Denver. You can’t miss her bubbly personality, gorgeous good looks, and perfectly styled blonde hair each night as she tells the locals what they have to look forward to weather-wise. Usually it’s sunny to match her great disposition! Recently we sat down with Lauren to talk about what her 5 favorite beauty products are. She made it very clear that although she’s very much polished to perfection on television, her regular beauty routine in her personal life is more low-key. Click the image to watch her explain why these are her favorites!
Product #5: The Lip Slip by Sara Happ
As Lauren puts it, this is “the best lip gloss on the planet.” She’d even own stock in the company if she could, it’s just that good. The Lip Slip by Sara Happ is a boutique company that specializes in amazing lip products including exfoliators, lip balms, and various glosses. Lauren puts it on at night and anytime her lips need a moisture boost. It feels luxurious and hydrating, so that her lips look camera-ready at all times. Plus, it has a little bit of light reflecting pigment, so it makes your lips look fuller, when you wear it on its own. Lauren gifts this gloss to all her friends anytime she needs a simple, yet very useful gift to give them.
Product #4: Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Mascara
Lauren used to get lash extensions all the time, but as time went on it was hard to commit to the schedule that the extensions require on a regular basis. That’s when she turned to Rodan + Fields Lash Boost. This lash conditioner gives you lush, full lashes that have less breakage and look longer. That’s just a bonus product to know about for her beauty secrets. But her real favorite is Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Mascara. This will give you long voluminous lashes that won’t smudge or budge during the day. Her mom even says this is almost “too much lashes.” Can you ever have too much lash? We don’t think so!
Product #3: Nars Pro Prime Smudge Proof Primer
With eye makeup, Lauren has found that getting it to stay on is always an issue. The way her eyes are shaped lead a lot of makeup to fall below for that dreaded “raccoon eye.” She’s prevents this on and off-camera with Nars Pro Prime Smudge Proof Primer. This eye base is going to allow your eye shadow to show up better and stay on all day. Lauren describes this product as “like glue on your eyelid.” When she puts her eye makeup on a 4 AM, it’s still on when she goes to take it off at 9 PM at night! This stuff is amazing.
Product #2: Rodan + Fields Microdermabrasion Paste
Skin is super important to Lauren and she credits her mom with giving her the education to take care of her face from a very young age. She’s into exfoliation for brighter skin, which is why Lauren turns to Rodan + Fields Microdermabrasion Paste. It’s a jar that you use a couple of times per week for a superior exfoliation. Lauren says it’s been a “game changer” for her skin because it just glows after she uses this product.
Product #1: Lancome Visionnaire Nuit
Moisturizing is also very important to Lauren. She says the environment is so dry in Colorado that she has to have a thorough moisturizing process. That’s when she was turned on to Lancome Visionnaire Nuit by a friend of hers. It’s considered a beauty sleep perfector. This is her last step at night, so she wakes up to radiant skin that’s “glowing and awesome” as she puts it!
