Award-winning journalist and current Yahoo Global News anchor Katie Couric shares her beauty picks and why her bathroom is her place of refuge. “I do my best thinking in the shower, away from distractions. I could stay forever, but I’d turn into a prune!”
NewBeauty: Being in the spotlight day in and day out must take a toll on your skin. What is your must-have product that you use as part of your daily routine to keep your skin looking so amazing?
Katie Couric: “I love Lancôme Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Night Cream ($119), morning, noon and night. My skin doesn’t feel right without it. If I forget to pack it for a trip, I practically freak out!”
NB: You have several Eucerin products in your bathroom. Do you moisturize regularly?
KC: “I wish I could drink Eucerin because my skin loves it so much! I often put baby oil on right before I get out of the shower and then apply a second coat of Eucerin. I’ve almost killed my husband a few times, as the floor is so slippery. I highly recommend it!”
NB: You have two of most items in your bathroom. Is there a particular reason or do you just like to have a backup on hand?
KC: “I travel a lot so I try to have duplicates of the products I use. I also have a dressing room in the back of my apartment where I get ready for interviews, so I keep some products there as well. I need to have my go-to things at my fingertips!”
NB: You have quite the collection of fragrances. What is your favorite scent?
KC: “My fragrances are pretty much for show; I always forget to use them! But on special occasions, I like CHANEL No 5. ($100)”
NB: What’s the best beauty tip or trick you’ve learned?
KC: “Always apply all of your eye makeup before putting on concealer or foundation so the residue doesn’t get under your eye, which can give you a tired look.”
