Olivia Culpo 'switches' her beauty routine in the summer

Olivia Culpo has "switched" her beauty routine for the summer months.

The 24-year-old American actress has admitted her beauty "trick" is not to wear too many cosmetic products, and she has revealed she has changed her everyday make-up routine for the warmer months, which sees her adorn tinted moisturiser with highlighting qualities to accentuate her cheekbones.

Speaking to InStyle about her make-up overhaul, the brunette beauty said: ""The trick is to not wear more make-up than you need that's why I switch to tinted moisturiser.

"In the summer I switch to a tinted moisturiser with a highlighter above the cheekbone.

"I also switch to a pink or peachy lip gloss or balm. Right now I love L'Oreal Colour Riche Lip Balm in Caring Coral."

However, the 'Other Woman' star has revealed her make-up bag is not the only beauty department to receive a complete overhaul, and she has shaken up her hair regime too.

She explained: "My summer beauty look is air-dried hair with a little thickening spray, like Oribe, for extra volume on humid days."

And Olivia - who is the Global Ambassador for the non-profit Pencils of Promise charity - likes to adorn a feminine yet casual ensemble on warmer days.

Speaking about her wardrobe choices, she said: "I'm into a loose, feminine dress with a cool sneaker.

Meanwhile Olivia - who was crowned Miss USA in 2012 when she was representing her home town Rhode Island in the pageant - has admitted her mum found her career as a beauty queen "shocking".

Speaking previously, Olivia said: "My mom is a natural beauty, doesn't have any beauty products at all.

"When I became really invested in doing other people's make-up and my own make-up and competing in all these pageants for her, it was very shocking. She didn't really like it and thought a lot of it was vain."

"So she started to tell me 'less is more' and I agree ... It's important for people to feel beautiful, but it's more about what's on the inside. That's something my mom actually told me growing up all the time."
