Posted Tuesday April 22, 2014 10:10 AM GMT

Showing off her natural beauty, Olivia Munn scored the cover of Allure magazine's May 2014 issue.

"The Newsroom" actress posed for the Carter Smith-shot spread and opened up about everything from her biggest makeup mistake to the one beauty habit she won't let her boyfriend, Joel Kinnaman, watch her do.

Check out highlights from Munn's interview below, and for more head over to Allure!

On the skin-care product she can't live without:
"Right now, it's Proactiv Dark Spot Corrector. [Munn is a spokeswoman for the company.] I had this cystic outbreak not that long ago, and I got these scars on my face and neck. So I keep it with me."

On her favorite makeup products:
"The Diorshow Brow Styler. The color is perfect, and it comes with an eyebrow brush. And Julie Hewett's shimmer highlighter for my cheekbones and eyes. Even when you're wearing nothing, it makes you look like you're wearing something."

On her worst hair mistake:
"Somebody put my hair over one side of my eye. Whenever anybody tries to do something too extreme, I look like the daughter from The Incredibles."

On her worst makeup mistake:
"Putting on too much blush. I like blush, and sometimes I can do that Bridget Jones thing where you're like, 'Oh, this is great,' and you walk out and you're like, 'No.'"

On the part of her beauty routine she'd never let her boyfriend witness:
"I would never let my man see me shave. I just don't think that you ever look like you're in a nice position."
