Zoe Kravitz dislikes it when a bunch of light-coloured make-up is applied to her skin that do not match her skin tone.

The 28-year-old actress who is the daughter of music legend Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet has admitted her pet peeve is when stylists on set of a fashion campaign or movie apply a variety of cosmetic products to her face that don't match her complexion. 

Speaking about her beauty battle to Allure magazine, the 'Mad Max: Fury Road' star said: "I've had make-up artists not even bring the right colours for me and then try to put it on. It's OK if you haven't done a lot of darker skin - but people not wanting to respect and acknowledge that there is something different going on here?

"And you can't just put a bunch of light-coloured make-up or a bunch of products that work for straight hair on me. The star has admitted she has had to source her own hair stylist and bring them with her to shoot because they are more experienced with working with her long tresses.

She explained: "I've also had experiences where I'll be on a shoot, and there will be a well-known hair stylist who doesn't really know how to do black hair. So I'll bring someone that does, and that person will really do all the work but the other person gets the credit. It happens a lot, to a lot of black hairstylists, because that other person is famous and works out of Paris or whatever. One person does all the work, and the other person gets the credit. It's really sad."

However, the star has revealed she feels uncomfortable addressing the issue and telling them the products don't work for her, because she fears she will look like the difficult one. She said: "I've been in situations on a movie set or a photo shoot where I feel uncomfortable having to say, 'This isn't right.' "Now I'm the difficult one because you don't acknowledge that I do have a different skin tone."
