Olivia Munn has found a cure for her eyelash-pulling disorder: makeup.

Last year, the "Newsroom" star revealed to the New York Daily News that she had an anxiety disorder that resulted in her pulling out her eyelashes. "Every time I run out of the house, I have to stop and pick up a whole set of fake eyelashes," she said.

Having been in the makeup chair for some time now, Munn has learned a thing or two about how to deal with her disorder. She told People that she now dabs her eyes with powdered makeup to keep the false eyelashes stuck to her lids.

Munn compared her compulsion, known as trichotillomania, to that of people who bite their nails. "It doesn’t hurt, but it’s really annoying," she told the Daily News.

Even with no makeup, the former "Daily Show" correspondent looks flawless.
