Olivia Munn is proud of her freckled face and prefers to keep things natural.

The brunette beauty shared her beauty musts, which include keeping her complexion looking as natural as possible.

The Newsroom star enjoys making the best of her features, rather than trying to disguise herself.

“I’ve had them since I can remember… it’s just my skin,” she told People about her freckles. “I don’t like it when people try to cover them up!”

The actress always appears poised and confident on screen. However, Olivia suffers from anxiety, which manifests itself in a condition that causes her to pull her own eyelashes out.

“It’s called trichotillomania,” she explained. “It’s the same thing as people who bite their nails.”

The 33-year-old first started to tug at her lashes when she was 26 and the condition worsens in social situations. Luckily her time spent having make-up professionally done has helped her find a solution.

“If I were to walk into someone’s birthday party, I’d have a bad anxiety attack,” she admitted.

“I just created my own little lash-band with individuals. I have a powder mix that I apply to eyelids to help the false lashes adhere."

Other than her false lashes, Olivia keeps her beauty routine simple. She shared her top tip for looking good in the warmer weather.

“[I rely on] a good lip balm, [I like a Body Shop one], and a hair tie," she added.
