The 27-year-old actress and singer has revealed ever since she was a child she has had a "rebellious spirit", which made her not want to look "perfect" all the time, and led her to adopt a "low maintenance" beauty and hair care regime.

Speaking about her daily routine, the brunette beauty said: "When I was younger, I had this incredibly rebellious spirit. I just wanted to be natural and silly-looking and not appear perfect all the time--because it's a lot of pressure, you know? On the red carpet everyone started to look the same, like a Barbie doll, and it made me really uncomfortable.

"So I think I was just about claiming, 'OK, if I'm going to be a part of this world, I want to do it in my own way.' But I think I've found a way to feel comfortable, looking like I put effort into the way I look, and still feel like I'm being myself.

"My braids are really low-maintenance so I use very little hair product. This has a nice scent and is good for freshening everything up."

The 'Mad Max: Fury Road' star - who was announced as Yves Saint Laurent's beauty muse earlier this year - has admitted she doesn't wear any foundation but uses the luxury brand's Touche Eclat to "brighten" her face.

She explained: "I don't wear foundation on a daily basis so this is just wonderful for highlighting and covering. It brightens without looking like you're going out-out.

"If I'm eating too much sugar or not sleeping enough, I see it in my skin."

And will adorn a bold lip colour when she wants to make "a statement".

She told InStyle Online: "When I want to make a statement with lip color, I go for a red, burgundy, or nude. In a bold, matte finish, it's always classic."
