    The actor explained that when she began wearing more makeup on set, her skin reacted pretty poorly.

    "When I started working and wearing more makeup, my skin got a lot worse," Maude said in a video for Vogue's Beauty Secrets series.

    Things got so bad that Maude said she had to tell director Sam Levinson to "be careful with the lighting."

    "I was shooting Euphoria a couple months ago, and I got three gigantic zits on my forehead. You couldn't cover them — they were so big. And they stuck out," Maude explained.

    Thankfully, Maude has come up with a beauty routine as well as some golden rules to help her skin deal with the heavy makeup on set.

    "I needed to come up with a routine, and this one I've used all through shooting Euphoria, and it's worked," Maude said.

    She continued, "It's taken me a long time to figure out products that don't make me break out. And even still, I think it's just wearing so much makeup for so many hours, and reapplying it and reapplying it, it just gets like — it's so hard not to break out."
