Olivia Culpo: No make-up selfies rule!

Olivia Culpo doesn’t get why people expect perfection at all times.

The star’s stunning looks helped her secure the Miss Universe title in 2012. But despite having to be heavily made up as a beauty queen, Olivia thinks it’s important for people to see a celebrity without all the fancy products and studio lighting.

“I think it's amazing when people post pictures of themselves looking haggard or how Kim Kardashian posted a picture of herself with her baby bump with no Photoshop, looking bigger because she's pregnant,” she told “I think that's beautiful, and it's great if you feel compelled to put across a message. Everyone should do a no make-up selfie.”

Olivia is comfortable wearing a minimal amount of cosmetics, as long as her eyebrows are well groomed. For the star, they are fundamental to a person looking their best so she takes good care of hers.

“Well, I love Anastasia by Beverly Hills products. It's all about keeping the arch as high as possible,” she explained. “You want to have the front part of the brow a little lower so the arch is higher so it frames your face more. You have to know your face. Or if you go to Anastasia, she's the best. She taught me how to do it because I just love beauty and fashion and all of that.”

But despite her beauty, Olivia, who dated singer Nick Jonas for two years until earlier this year, still has her off days where she doesn’t like what she sees in the mirror.

“When you wake up, and you have a pimple on your chin, your hair is a mess, and you're bloated. All the time,” she said. "People want to think it’s all perfect all the time. They don't want to see when you trip and drop your green tea all over the place."
