Model and Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo has long been an icon of beauty and elegance.

With her wedding to NFL star Christian McCaffrey approaching, Culpo recently shared her summer beauty essentials in an Amazon Live session, revealing her secret to achieving a radiant, dewy look without breaking the bank.

The model's recommendations highlight that you don't need high-end products to look stunning. Her curated list includes a mix of skincare and makeup items that deliver impressive results.

By incorporating these budget-friendly essentials, you can effortlessly capture Culpo's summer glow and stay radiant all season long.

1. Tula Skincare Protect + Glow Daily Sunscreen Gel

Sun protection is crucial, and Culpo swears by the Tula Skincare Protect + Glow Daily Sunscreen Gel. This daily SPF 30 sunscreen not only protects the skin from the harmful effects of sun rays, pollution, and blue light but also imparts a beautiful dewy look.

Packed with probiotic extracts, pineapple, papaya, and wild butterfly ginger root, it promotes even skin tone and strengthens the skin's barrier. It's non-comedogenic and suitable for all skin types, making it an excellent addition to your morning routine. Though it's a bit pricier at $38, its dual function as a sunscreen and skin enhancer makes it worth the investment.

2. L'Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion

Culpo's radiant complexion is also thanks to the L'Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion. This product, costing around $14, hydrates and luminizes the skin, providing an all-over natural glow.

Infused with glycerin and shea butter, it ensures all-day hydration. Available in four shades, it can be worn alone, under foundation, or on target areas for a more luminous effect, making it versatile and suitable for various skin tones.

3. Maybelline Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation

For a flawless base, Culpo opts for the Maybelline Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation, priced at $7.69. This foundation is ideal for normal to dry skin, hydrating and smoothing the skin's texture for a natural-looking, luminous finish.

It also includes SPF 18 for added protection. With a wide range of shades, it provides buildable coverage that blends seamlessly, ensuring a perfect canvas for any look.

4. E.l.f. Monochromatic Multi-Stick

One of Culpo's go-to products is the e.l.f. Monochromatic Multi-Stick. This cream-to-powder stick delivers vibrant, blendable color that can be used on the eyes, lips, and cheeks. The non-greasy, lightweight formula glides on smoothly and melts into the skin, providing a fresh and flattering finish.

Infused with shea butter and vitamin E, it nourishes the skin while adding a pop of color, making it a versatile and essential item in any makeup bag.

5. Wet n Wild MegaGlo Makeup Stick

To add a final touch of shimmer, Culpo uses the Wet n Wild MegaGlo Makeup Stick. This highlighter stick, costing under $4, provides a gorgeous glow with just one swipe. It's easy to carry and perfect for quick touch-ups on the go.

Available in multiple shades for strobing, contouring, concealing, and adding blush, it's a multi-use product that enhances the complexion effortlessly.

6. Nyx Lip Pencil

A good lip liner is a must, and Olivia's choice is the Nyx Lip Pencil, priced at $4.75. This lip liner comes in a variety of shades and has a buttery soft, long-wearing formula that goes on smoothly and resists bleeding. It's perfect for defining lips and can be paired with any lipstick or gloss to enhance your pout.

7. Nyx Fat Oil Lip Drip

For luscious lips, Culpo loves the Nyx Fat Oil Lip Drip. This lip oil, priced at around $9, delivers a glossy, non-sticky finish that hydrates and protects the lips for up to 12 hours. Infused with vegan squalane, it provides a rich shine and a hint of color. Available in eight universally flattering shades, it can be worn alone or layered with other lip products for added intensity.
