Re: best primer for oily skin/large pores
The problem with most primers is that they are a thick gel consistency and contain silicone. This is what makes them feel heavy and gooey – they are awful for oily skin, and work better on dry skin. Try a powder primer instead. The best one I’ve found is called Mattify! Ultra powder for Oily Skin, and you can apply it once your moisturizer has dried. It keeps the shine away for several hours, helps makeup last a long time, and conceals pores. Also, it feels very light and prevents your foundation from sinking in to pores and causing breakouts. You can use it on top of your foundation too, for extra oil control and a flawless finish. My skin is INSANELY oily and this powder has helped so much. Bare Minerals or Escentuals has something similar, called a mineral veil, but it doesn’t work well on oily skin. They put shiny ingredients in it, and it makes your face look all greasy. The Mattify! Powder is totally matte and doesn’t make you look oily. It costs around $12, just type Mattify Cosmetics into your search bar to find it.
