Kelly Dodd’s Beauty Secrets

Kelly Dodd from Real Housewives of Orange County can be pretty polarizing, but I think we can all agree that she’s absolutely gorgeous and may be aging in reverse. Kelly Dodd was born September 26, 1975 making her 43 years old. Kelly Meza-Dodd is originally from Arizona and has also lived in San Francisco before ending up in Orange County. She is also a Latina and part Mexican.

Kelly Dodd does not look like she's aged!

Kellys tagline this season is “Call animal control, ’cause there’s a cougar on the loose in the OC.” She is recently divorced from her ex Michael Dodd. Kelly is single and on the prowl and looking better than ever! Kelly and Michael Dodd have one daughter together named Jolie.

When do you feel most beautiful?
Everyday, when I eat healthy and exercise. (Source)

Kelly Dodd’s Skin Care

As you’ve gotten older, how has your beauty routine changed?
When I was younger I use to just wash my face and call it a night. Now I wash, tone, brighten, retin A, moisturize. I believe beauty starts from the inside out, so I am more mindful now about nutrition, exercise and getting enough sleep. (Source)

Kelly Dodd says using SPF in her 20’s and continuing to stay out of the son has kept her looking young. Erika Jayne from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills preaches this tip over and over as well.

If you were only going to wear one beauty product, what would it be?
Sunscreen to prevent wrinkles. (Source)

I feel like Kelly Dodd would wear a higher end sunscreen like the Dr. Dennis Gross Dark Spot Sun Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 ($42). I have an entire Amazon list dedicated to sun protection.

and MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Cafe Au Chic ($21) on the bottom lip! Or maybe she meant she put’s this MAC on first and the L’Oreal on top? Unclear.

In her Bravo 4 Beauty Must Haves video Kelly was carrying around this pretty pink Edward Bess Deep Shine Lip Gloss in French Lace ($35)

Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Setting Powder

Another beauty must-have is the cult favorite Laura Mercier Powder Translucent Loose Setting Powder. I’m guessing Kelly uses this to set her makeup, touch up throughout the day and control oil. This powder will fill in your pores and keep you looking flawless all day.

Tom Ford Cream and Powder Eyeshadow

When Kelly Dodd did a What’s In My Bag video for Bravo she was carrying around the Tom Ford Cream & Powder Eye Color Duo ($62) in Golden Peach. I have heard amazing things about these eye shadows. The metallic cream shadow goes onto the lid with a rich glow and the sparkling celestial powder on the lid intensifies the look and adds depth and shimmer.

Kat Guevara (@katguevaramua) was nice enough to post a breakdown of this gorgeous soft glam bronzer look on Kelly Dodd.

I’m loving my makeup today! Thank you, @katguevaramua for the beat down!

Kelly Dodd’s Eyebrows

Microblading

Kelly has her eyebrows microbladed. Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure where the brows are tattooed on in a natural color and shape using hair-like strokes to imitate the real deal. You can read my very thorough post all about eyebrow microblading here.

Kelly Dodd’s Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Procedures

Kelly Dodd’s Breast Reduction

“They were so large and in charge,” she shares. “There’s a lot of women that are [in their] 40s and they, you know, have boobs hanging down to here and, when you’re 40, you’re getting older and you need to maintain. I also got vaginal rejuvenation, too.” (Source)

Kelly said she’s always had big boobs and they were hurting her back so she had a reduction and lift. She also claims that “flat is the in thing” and she wishes she went even smaller! (Source) Kelly went from a 32GG to a 32DD. (Source)

Kelly Dodd’s Vaginal Rejuvenation

“I know it’s gross, and a lot of women don’t talk about it, but it’s the reality,” she continues. “You can do something about it … you don’t have to have, like, wear a pad all the time, you don’t have to worry about jumping up and down. You don’t have to worry about coughing or laughing, you know what I mean? You can go running. There’s things you can do to help yourself be better.” (Source)

Kelly Dodd had vaginal rejuvenation to help with her incontinence. A CO2 laser tightens the bladder. Sonja Morgan of Real Housewives of New York City has had a similar procedure.

Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma

Kelly Dodd after doing Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma. She calls this procedure a miracle saying it tightens the skin and builds collagen and doesn’t hurt.

Kelly Dodd is not afraid to get messy for the sake of beauty. She had micro needling aka a Platelet Rich Plasma facial aka PRP Facial aka Vampire Facial. For this they spin the blood and use the microneedle to put the platelets into a deeper layer of the skin to help with pigmentation and acne scars.

“What they do is they draw blood and they take the plasma, they spin it, and they take the plasma out of your blood, so it’ll be like liquid gold basically,” she explained. “It’s supposed to put the collagen and all of the good stuff from your plasma of your blood and they needle it. They have this little needle, so they put the plasma in it.” (Source)

Kelly Dodd’s Botox and Lasers

She had hers done at CosmetiCare in Orange County. She also had ClearLift Laser and received Botox that day as well. She has also had a custom peel done at Cosmeticare as well.

Venus Viva Nano Fractional Micro-Needling

Radio frequency combined with micro needling helps lift, tone, and tighten the skin so Kelly doesn’t look “old as mold.”

It’s supposed to help with acne scars, deep wrinkles, enlarged pores, and uneven skin texture. Kelly had hers done at Skin Lab USA with Joshua Ross.

Cool Sculpting

Kelly had Cool Sculpting done on her stomach to freeze fat cells which leads them to be naturally processed and eliminated. She also had this procedure done at CosmetiCare. (Source)

Kelly Dodd’s Makeup Artist

Kelly Dodd used makeup artist Kat Guevara (@katguevaramua) for her reunion look and some of her interview looks. Here’s another look Kat did for Kelly Dodd:

She has also seen Real Housewives tri-state area Bravo clubhouse favorite Priscilla DiStasio (@mspriscillanyc) who you may remember from Ramona Singer’s Beauty Secrets post.

Kelly Dodd’s Teeth & Smile

Kelly uses one of my favorite shortcuts to looking younger – Crest White Strips. A whiter smile is a younger looking smile, trust me and try it!

She carries flossers and Orbit gum in her bag as well- Kelly obviously values a flawless smile.

Kelly Dodd’s Style

Kelly has amazing style and she’s using it to create a new fashion line called No Skills. No word yet on when it launches, but you can read more about Kelly Dodd’s fashion line on Bravo.

Kelly was actually previously the COO of Kiss Me Mirrors based out of Newport Beach, CA, but I can’t find a website or any additional info on this compact makeup mirror line. (Source)
