The former Miss Universe, now 32, recently responded to detractors questioning her minimalistic approach to glamour during her wedding to NFL star Christian McCaffrey on June 29. Opting for a surprisingly understated makeup look, she eschewed mascara, lip liner, and eyebrow makeup, a choice that has sparked mixed reactions.

Critics, including TikTok creator Jessica Weslie Arena, voiced their disapproval, particularly targeting Vogue’s coverage of Culpo’s wedding glam. Arena’s video criticizing the media attention drew attention, prompting Culpo herself to clarify that her makeup choices were in response to interview questions.

Acknowledging previous beauty treatments such as a lash lift, Culpo addressed the discussion transparently on social media, emphasizing the importance of honesty about beauty routines for the sake of young women’s self-perception.

Beyond the makeup debate, Culpo’s wedding attire also stirred controversy. She wore a long-sleeved Dolce & Gabbana gown with a voluminous skirt and a 16-foot lace veil, explaining that her choice aimed to avoid any overtly sensual vibes and instead reflect timeless elegance, resonating with her husband’s perspective on her beauty.

Christian McCaffrey, Culpo’s husband, defended her against critics who disparaged her wedding day appearance, emphasizing her inner peace and joy in response to negative comments.
