Face Makeup Tricks & How-To's (285)
Get a Miss USA makeover

The crowning of Miss USA occurred last month with the gorgeous Olivia Culpo of Rhode Island taking home the top honors. The stunning young lady is not only polished, but certainly knows how to apply makeup. Elle Girl Magazine recently broke down her signature style so ladies everywhere can feel like a reigning champ.

To achieve a look like Culpo's, you'll first need some stellar beauty products such as cranberry red lipstick, clear lip gloss, neutral eyeshadow palettes, rose colored blush, black eyeliner, bronzer and a great foundation. Once you have the necessities, you can begin your stunning transformation.

Clear complexion

One of the best features of Culpo's face is her clear skin. You can achieve a similar style by applying foundation all over your face using makeup brushes to smooth and even out the product. The magazine suggests putting the foundation on your cheeks, chin, nose and forehead, as those are common trouble areas. Next, apply a pressed powder over the foundation to even out your skin tone and rid your skin of any excess oil.

Bronzer and blush

When your base is complete, it's time to add some color! Start by applying golden brown bronzer on the apples of your cheeks then put more on your forehead and nose - all places where the sun would naturally hit your face, InStyle Magazine reports. To finish off your skin, add touches of rose blush to your cheekbones for a girlie pop of color.

Sassy eyes

No beauty queen would be ready without sassy and stand out eye makeup and Culpo is no different. To achieve perfect eye makeup like the champion, start by applying shimmering gold eyeshadow all over your top lids. Elle Girl suggests starting from the outer corners of your eyes and moving toward the center of the lids for the best and most even application.

Next, apply the black eyeliner along your upper and lower lash lines starting at the inner corners and moving outward. Then use an eyelash curler to add major volume to your lashes and glide on a few coats of volumizing mascara to complete the eyes.

Luscious lips

The final step for looking like Miss USA is to rock a stand out lip color, such as a fresh cranberry hue. To ensure the color stays in place, start by lining your lips with a waterproof lip pencil in a matching shade to the lipstick you'll be using. Apply a few coats of the lipstick and then finish off with a clear lip gloss for the perfect amount of shine.
