Keke Palmer shared her makeup routine shortly after revealing she suffers from polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).

On Sunday, the 27-year-old posted a makeup tutorial to Instagram that showed how she covers her acne scars.

“I’ve been dealing with acne and struggling with makeup, and trying to cover it, and all that stuff for a really long time. I don’t think there’s any shame in it because you gotta make it do what you gotta make it do,” the actress said. Throughout the video, Palmer showed the various steps of how she does her makeup, captioning the post with a list of products that she relies on.

She also urged commenters not to give her advice on how she should manage her own skin. “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 wrote.

While some didn’t heed Palmer’s warning to not share their opinions, most commenters praised the star for her fun, educational and transparent video.

“Keke...you are so real and just a joy to experience. Thank you for being brave enough to just be freakin' you! No filters, no Hollywood fakeness. We stan,” one fan wrote. “Keke girl!! You’re post honestly brought me to tears! The fact that you’re so raw and beautiful and open has honestly helped boost my confidence! I have lots of acne scarring dark spots that I struggle with all the time! People think because my skin is dark I don’t have anything but I really do!! I think it’s about time I start posting more bare pictures! I’m always hiding behind filters and makeup! Thank you Queen honestly!” another user praised.

Last week, Palmer made headlines after sharing unfiltered and makeup-free selfies, which showed her acne scars. In the post she revealed that she had been diagnosed with PCOS, which is caused by an imbalance of reproductive hormones.

“The least harmful thing PCOS can bring is acne. To all the people struggling with this please know you’re not alone and that you are still so f*****g fine! MY ACNE AINT NEVER STOPPED ME. But we don’t have accept this. Now I can really help KEKE! And I love her so it’s ON,” she wrote in part.
