The 4 Beauty Products Olivia Culpo Won't Travel Without
Olivia Culpo's beauty looks are always flawless. From her effortlessly tousled waves to her fresh-faced skin, the former Miss Universe always makes it look easy. Lucky for us, she's generous about sharing her beauty secrets.
Last month, Culpo stopped by the Colgate Optic White Beauty Studio to relax and recharge during the Tribeca Film Festival and dished on her top beauty products. "I am constantly traveling, but I like to keep the same beauty routine, regardless of where I am," she said. (Related: Olivia Culpo Shares Her Style Hacks While Traveling)
Got your credit card ready? Here are Culpo's four tried-and-true beauty must-haves. (And they're super affordable!)
1. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20
Culpo swears by Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer—and if her effortless glow is any indication of how well it works—we're so in. The ultimate twofer, this tinted moisturizer is the best of both worlds: anti-aging skincare and long-lasting makeup. Containing a powerful complex of vitamins E and C, this moisturizer fights free radicals while its sodium hyaluronate hydrates and plumps skin.

Plus, the lightweight, non-comedogenic formula provides a gorgeous tint of color to enhance skin without looking (or feeling) too heavy. And, it's gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin types. Did we mention it contains broad spectrum SPF 20 UVB/UVA sunscreen, too?
One shopper raves: "This gives my skin exactly what it needs—moisture, coverage and SPF protection—in one easy step. It's cut down my get ready routine by about 5 minutes (my husband is shocked!). But, the best aspect of this product is its coverage. I have very uneven skin, thanks to hyper-pigmentation and old acne scars and LM Tinted Moisturizer glides over it, blending it in and making my skin tone miraculously appear even and impeccably natural."

2. Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes
If you're always on the go like Culpo, you need products that make your life easier. Her fave no fuss go-to? Neutrogena makeup removal wipes. In one step, these pre-moistened towelettes remove dirt, oil, and 99.3 pecent of makeup—even waterproof mascara—without harsh scrubbing or rinsing. And they're alcohol-free, so they won't dry out your skin or irritate sensitive eyes.
The best part (other than the resealable, convenient packaging) is the drugstore price tag—a pack of three (21-count each) will run you less than $15—so you can leave one at work, one at home, and one for on-the-go.

3. Colgate Optic White High Impact Toothpaste
If you ever wondered how the model achieves her million-dollar smile, this is it. Formulated with hydrogen peroxide, Colgate Optic White High Impact Toothpaste penetrates below the tooth's surface to whiten from the inside out. When you brush twice a day for six weeks, your pearly whites are guaranteed to twinkle–up to four shades visibly whiter and brighter. Plus, it's safe for enamel. (P.S. Here's Kim Kardashian's secret to super white teeth.)
One happy reviewer gushes: "So yesterday, I had two separate people, on two separate occasions, in two separate locations, who didn't know each other, tell me I had the whitest teeth they'd ever seen. I'm on my 3rd tube of High Impact White. With comments like that, I'll keep using this product!"

Made with 100 percent pure, organic coconut oil, shea butter, and squalene, this ultra-hydrating, non-sticky lip balm has triple the moisturizing power to nourish and smooth your kisser (buh-bye, chapped lips!). And the tropical coconut scent will give you serious #beachvibes.
One customer writes: "Beautiful gloss finish without the stickiness. Keeps the lips hydrated and supple all day. Plus, the warm coconut smell is divine!"
