Krysten Ritter: Beauty team work wonders

Krysten Ritter isn't a fan of red carpets, but makes sure to dress up when she does make an appearance.

The 33-year-old actress is known for her porcelain doll appearance, with fair skin and jet black hair. She always looks fabulous on screen and puts it down to her trusty team of experts behind the scenes.

"Thank God for hair and make-up. I love it on set when I come out of the chair a new woman," she smiled to British magazine Marie Claire. "When I'm not working I don't even know how to blow-dry my hair. MAC's black ink gel eyeliner is my go-to."

She may not be a regular at A-list events but when she does Krysten makes an impact. But it isn't always in an obvious way, with the star favouring a less-is-more approach.

"I don't like to do a lot of red carpets. When I do, though, I love to get glammed up," she smiled. "I prefer simple stuff like Calvin Klein, and some of the cute younger designers such as Prabal Gurung."

Krysten may be comfortable in her own skin now but it took her a while to get to that place. It was only when she ventured into modelling that her confidence boosted.

"When I became a model, it gave me some self-esteem and a place to belong. Up until then, my home life was a little rocky and the kids at school would totally pick on me, and then when I became a model, it almost got worse," she previously told Ocean Drive magazine.
