Keke Palmer showed how she transforms her skin with a tutorial for ‘extreme acne makeup coverage’ – Insider – INSIDER

Keke Palmer recently opened up about having acne caused by polycystic ovary syndrome and now she's showing how she transforms her skin using makeup.

On Monday, the actress took to Instagram with a 13-minute-long "Extreme Acne: Makeup Coverage Tutorial." She said in the caption of her post that she wasn't looking for advice on how to manage or treat her skin and that she would block those who left mean comments.

Instead, she wanted to share her "process for those that asked," and said that ultimately, viewers should find the beauty products and routines that work for them.

Before using any makeup, Palmer sprays Caudalie's $18 Beauty Elixir across her face. She then applies a thin layer of Aquaphor to her eyelids and face to add moisture and create "a light barrier" that helps her remove her makeup at the end of the day.

Next, Palmer applies an orange concealer from the $35 MAC Studio Fix Conceal and Correct Palette with a small brush to "cancel out" dark spots and acne scarring. She noted that while the orange shade "looks stupid" in her opinion, it really works to even her skin tone.

After the orange base is applied, Palmer uses a sponge to apply the $30 NARS Radiant Creamy Concealerin the shade Walnut as a spot corrector.

"I really encourage everybody watching this to do this your way," Palmer said while applying concealer. "Everybody's skin is different."

Next, she uses the $36 MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation with the same sponge and tops it off with another NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in a lighter shade called Ginger.

Palmer then fills in her eyebrows to give her base time to settle, follows up with the $33 MAC Studio Fix Soft Matte Foundation Stick to contour, and adds a few extra dots of concealer to any spots where she wants more coverage.

For the last steps of her routine, Palmer uses a variety of powders to mattify her face. She first applies MAC's $36 Mineralize Skinfinish, then the $62 Lancme Absolue Powder, and finally a Ben Nye Makeup powder.

"You will get blocked telling me how to manage my skin," Palmer wrote in the caption of her Instagram post. "I'm not asking you for advice or your help. Please stop, it's very rude, and I promise you can't cure acne over the internet."

She went on to advise people with acne to "ignore the misguided comments suggesting things for you," as she feels there are "a lot of people trying to sell products" online.

"I tried to delete them all!" Palmer said. "If you want help, seek it out through extensive research. Don't let people take advantage of your condition on Instagram. y'all should be ashamed."

On December 2, the actress and musician postedthree barefaced selfies on Instagram and said that polycystic ovary syndrome, a hormonal disorder that can cause irregular periods and infertility, has been "attacking" her "from the inside out" throughout her life.

"My acne has been so bad that people in my field offered to pay for me to get it fixed," Palmer wrote. "I tried EVERYTHING. I did Accutane TWICE. People say drink water, have a better diet, but I did all that, I ate all the 'right' things, my blood tests were fine."

Still, Palmer said that while her skin has made her feel sad in the past, she knows that acne is one of "the least harmful things PCOS can bring." She said wanted to let "all the people struggling" with similar skin conditions know that they're not alone and "still so f---ing fine!"

"MY ACNE AINT NEVER STOPPED ME," Palmer said. "But we don't have accept this. Now I can really help KEKE! And I love her so it's ON. Pray for me on this journey and I will pray for you too. I'm not afraid to show myself to the world and you shouldn't be either."
