With the exception of the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, Fox Sports broadcaster Erin Andrews might be the hottest woman to ever stand on the sidelines of a football game. We asked for her game day beauty tricks.


How do you stay so fresh and polished on the field? I feel like I never see you sweat.

Oh, then you're not looking hard enough because I'm a sweater. That's one of the reasons I'm stoked about teaming up with Degree for Women and this new antiperspirant they have with clinical protection. I do sweat and I do get nervous. There are times when I'll even have a sweat-stache on air.

Do you ever do anything unconventional with your deodorant?
Oh yeah, I've used it on my chest, hands, and my feet with ballroom dancing. This is very attractive-I was sweating so much on Dancing with the Stars that my feet were sliding out of my shoes. So we had to dirty them up a little bit.

Is there one product that really stands up on the sidelines and stage?
A good primer. One of the ones I'm using is from Benefit, which has a corrector. I'm not gonna lie, I'm a picker on my face which has left some scars. So I kind of need everything to balance it out.

You're also constantly traveling, how do you keep your skin so fresh and glowy?
I love La Mer. I use the lighter lotion during the day and the thicker cream at night. I find their eye cream is great as well. I also drink as much water as possible. Oh, and concealer under my eyes because I've inherited my daddy's dark circles. I use Amazing Cosmetics concealer-that's what they use on me on Fox and what they used for Dancing with the Stars.

You always have a gorgeous nude, glossy lip. What are your favorites?
I love Laura Mercier's nude colors and they smell a little like cocoa which is fabulous. I'm also a lip gloss freak-the juicier the better. So I definitely like to load up on that before I'm on camera.

And how do you get those tousled, beachy waves?
I'm obsessed with dry shampoo. I hate washing my hair every day, and even when it is washed, I ask my people to dirty it up. I use the Redken texturizing spray. I've also been using Kérastase moisturizing shampoo and conditioner lately since my hair is always getting blown out and dried and curled.

Are there any products you've seen in the male locker room that surprised you?
It's hilarious because those guys do use a lot of female products. Either they get them from their girlfriends or their wives. There's a lot of female deodorant, face wash, and female skin cream. Those boys like their products, no doubt.
