Creator and star of HBO's Girls, Lena Dunham, told US Glamour she feels "prettier with a naked face and chap stick", as she posed for the magazine's April issue cover.

While we totally admire Lena for her kickass approach to, well, everything we've got to say she rocks full on 1960s makeup like boss... Even if she does feel more herself bare faced.

"I feel prettier with a naked face and chap stick," she confessed. "But a good haircut makes a huge difference."

Aside from spilling the beans on what makes her feel beautiful, the 27-year-old said she may be chucking in the towel on her acting career soon.

"I don't know if I'm going to want to act anymore," she said. "I'm always relieved on the days I don't have to. I'd rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts."
