Television star, entrepreneur, mother, and philanthropist, Kameron Westcott dishes about her day to day life, the importance of balance and her must-have beauty products
Ahead of the September 4th airing of the latest season of The Real Housewives Of Dallas, Kameron Westscott took some time from her hectic schedule to shed some light on how she does it. Between a husband and two kids, a demanding reality TV film schedule, charity work, a pet food business, and a beauty routine, her life can be chaotic and tough to manage. Balance is key with any success, and Kameron has not only found hers, but she's also using it as a tool toward her success.
So, who is Kameron Westcott?
The Luxxe Pro - When did you begin your involvement in the Dallas Charity World?
Kameron Westcott - I started Dallas Junior League in 2008 and am now a sustainer member for life, so I’m super excited and happy about this! I also later got involved with Cattle Barons Ball in 2010.
TLP- How and why did you choose to be a Dallas Housewife?
KW- I never imagined I would ever be a housewife on Bravo TV! After being involved with the charity world for years I knew how impactful reality tv is and knew I could use this platform to bring awareness to important causes.
TLP- When did you start your Sparkle Dog Food business and why did you land on the pet industry?
KW- I started Sparkle Dog Food in 2016. I’ve always been a huge advocate for animals, especially dogs. My Yorkie Louis is such a picky eater and he’s never been satisfied with his dog kibble and I knew I wanted to create something to please his fancy palette.
TLP- What has been the biggest highlight of your career thus far?
KW- Being able to support Operation Kindness has been one of my favorite moments. We were able to provide an entire truckload of dog kibble to hungry pups and knowing that I was giving back felt great. We fed hundreds of dogs and gave some hope to so many homeless dogs. It warms my heart.
How does Kameron do it?
TLP- What are your favorite organizational tools/apps?
KW- My spiral planner by MomAgenda is a must-have. When paired with the Notes app on my iPhone, It’s fool-proof.
TLP- Do you ever struggle with feeling overwhelmed in your business decisions? If so, what steps do you take to realign and gain focus?
KW- Yes, I feel overwhelmed every day. Having a startup business is hard during the first few years. I usually ask my husband, Court for advice. It’s funny, he never thought he would be giving business advice on dog food, but his support is invaluable. When I’m over-stressed, I find the simple route to be the best; go take a walk around the neighborhood, watch reality tv, call my Mom, get a massage – anything to take my mind off of things for a bit.
TLP- If you could give one piece of advice to someone who is trying to balance motherhood and running a business, what would it be?
KW- Just take a deep breath. There are never enough hours in the day. Try to complete the important, most crucial tasks before the kids get out of school and always know that it’s okay to ask for help, advice, and support.
TLP- How do you juggle your friendships and social circles with such a pressing schedule with filming RHOD and running Sparkle Dog?
KW- We shoot for three months at a time and my close friends know that while I’m filming, I’m MIA. When I can sneak time to catch up, we usually do lunch at my house before I head to a scene. The filming schedule is super stressful, and we never truly know what we are filming. Everything happens so organically on the show and that makes it extremely hard to plan, socially. Running a business during filming is almost impossible. My husband is a vital part of my business while filming the show. He holds down the fort, so-to-speak.

What’s Kameron’s Beauty Routine?
TLP- What are your favorite self-care practices and how do you find time to make it a priority?
KW- I’m always in makeup for either business meetings or filming. Detoxing my skin from everything it endures is a must. I’m a big fan of face masks and peels. My at-home Beauty Bio GloPro keeps the texture of my skin looking great. I also book Hydra Facials religiously to keep my pores crystal clear. On top of that, I get a deep tissue massage every three weeks or so.
TLP- What is your go-to hair and makeup look?
KW- I love the Bridgette Bordeaux half up and half down with a smoky eye and pink nude lip. I also love loose mermaid waves with a clip on the side - there are so many fancy trendy ones right now.
TLP- Your skin is amazing – what are your top three skincare must-haves?
KW- Unequivocally, in this order:
TNS Essential Serum by Skin Medica
CF Serum by Skin Ceuticals
Elta MD Sunscreen
