Model’s OTT $5k 40-step beauty routine

American model and pageant queen Olivia Culpo wants you to know she did not wake up like this.

In a new video for Vogue, the former Miss Universe, 28, shares her entire beauty routine - a 40-step process that incorporates at least three dozen different products that will set you back over $5000 in total.

Culpo's skincare regimen alone features 12 steps, with the brunette beauty reaching for celebrity favourites like Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser ($56), GlamGlow Gravity Mud Firming Treatment Mask ($96) and Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel ($240).

Next, it's on to makeup, with products including Clé de Peau Concealer ($95), Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation ($75), Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster ($40) and Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Highlighter Wand ($60) all making their way onto Culpo's famous face.

 

 

The star also swears by several palettes - like Laura Mercier Highlight & Glow Face Palette ($87) and Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow Contour Duo ($97) - along with One/Size by Patrick Starrr Point Made 24-Hour Liquid Eyeliner Pen ($24) for the perfect cat eye.

Finishing touches include a duo of Dior lip products - Dior Addict Lip Tattoo ($52) and Lip Glow ($52) - and a spritz of Louis Vuitton California Dream Perfume ($440).

Despite the time, effort and expense involved, Culpo said she prefers a more natural beauty look, and isn't a fan of the full face of makeup she used to rock back in her pageant days.

"Looking back on those photos, I don't even know who that person is, because it was just too much," she said.

"I'm not a huge fan of changing what your face looks like. I like the idea of enhancing the things that make you different instead of creating a whole new face.

"I actually just like working with the canvas that you have."
