Justified Star Kaitlyn Dever Shares Swimsuit Photo From the Lake

She’s got good eyebrow advice.

Justified star Kaitlyn Dever had a fun-filled trip to the lake with friends, and shared highlights of her hijinks on Instagram. Dever, who played Loretta McCready on the show, posted a picture of herself wearing a black one-piece swimsuit with a white shirt on top, posing on a boat on the water. Another video showed her driving the boat, and riding on a jet ski. Dever has been in the public eye since she was young—here's how she makes it work.


Red Carpet Looks


Dever loves prepping for big red carpet events. "I'm really inspired by my friends, my fellow actors and the make-up looks they bring out into the world," she says. "I'm always seeing things on Instagram and wanting to try new things. Recently, I've been really into doing a little bit of something on the eye and keeping my skin very clean, glowy and young. I don't ever want to look older than I am, I want to look my age!"


Natural Beauty


Dever likes a clean, natural look when it comes to style and makeup. "My mom is constantly helping me with everything," she says. "One thing she always told me was to never pluck my eyebrows, ever, ever, ever. I don't do anything to my eyebrows now so I'm grateful for that advice! That and wearing sunscreen – I've been wearing sunscreen everyday since I was 15 years old. I get dressed up so often, so on the days I don't have to I'm most likely wearing super baggy clothes, tennis shoes and not a lot of make-up. I'm still trying to to get a smokey eye down, but, if I'm going out with my friends I do winged eyeliner – I've actually got really good at it! I've mastered using a felt tip pen liquid liner."


Calm Before the Storm


Dever preps for big events by relaxing as much as possible. "My plan is to have a long, warm bath and hang out there for a while," she says. "More coffee probably. Then music is key. I have to put on music. Maybe some John Denver, or I've been listening to a lot of Eric Clapton recently. When the nerves kick in, I might need a quick glass of champagne too…"


Proud of Unbelievable

Dever is incredibly proud of her role on Netflix series Unbelievable. "We screened Unbelievable for several congressmen and congresswomen," she says. "We were trying to get the Debbie Smith [Reauthorization] Act passed, which essentially eliminates rape-test backlog. I could feel that we were making a difference. [The law passed in 2019.] Since Unbelievable came out, I've had so many people sharing their stories with me. It means the world to me."


Always Evolving

Dever thrives on being challenged. "I do things that scare me sometimes, but I'm almost addicted to that feeling," she says. "I love mixing it up. I never want to be set in stone with anything I do. There are endless opportunities in this industry, and I'm constantly reminding myself that I can make anything possible for myself."
