Zoe Kravitz never covers her freckles with make-up

Zoe Kravitz goes easy on her make-up because she wants people to see her real skin.

The actress was tapped as a YSL Beauty global make-up ambassador last July (17), having had a regular seat in the front row of many Saint Laurent fashion shows.

She incorporates lots of the brand’s products into her daily make-up routine, but shared that she pays particular care to her foundation, ensuring that the coverage is never too heavy.

“When it comes to choosing a foundation, I want people to see my skin,” Zoe explained in an interview with Elle U.K. “I mix it up between dewy and matte finishes depending on what I’m doing, but I know it’s too thick if my freckles don’t show through.”

The Big Little Lies star likes to switch between YSL Beauty Touche Eclat All-In-One Glow Foundation for light coverage, and the label’s Encre de Peau All Hours Liquid Foundation when seeking a more glamorous look.

Her favourite cosmetic is the YSL Beauty Touche Eclat Illuminating Pen, and she never leaves the house without it.

“I carry it in my back pocket or handbag at all times,” the 29-year-old shared. “It’s so easy to apply when you’re on the go. It makes everything look brighter.”

Zoe admitted that while she was a tomboy growing up she nevertheless “loved make-up,” and is in awe of the difference certain products and techniques can make.

“I love the transformative power of a red lip. It can instantly dress everything up and make the simplest of outfits, like a T-shirt and jeans, look sophisticated,” the Mad Max: Fury Road star smiled, adding: “Big eyebrows are the way to go if you want to add a little drama to your face without looking like you’re wearing too much make-up.”
