View Full Version : Best foundation for Large Pores?

03-13-2013, 10:09 AM
My pores look fine before I apply make-up, but when I put my foundation on they look HUGE. Like I said, they are fine before make up but not after. Any suggestions for a good foundation for large pores?

Hi there. I have found that no foundation really helps control large pores; however, using a good primer really does make a difference! By using a primer under my foundation, it "seals' the pores - giving them a smoother, smaller look and keeping my makeup on all day.

Ive tried lots of primers- the one which I like the best and doesnt break me out (my skin tends to clog easily due to large pores) is Makeup Forever's High Definition Primer. I get it at Sephora.

Thank you. Yeah, it just stinks because my pores look perfectly fine before I apply foundation. I use a primer as well and I just feel like foundation makes my skin look worse because of how badly it makes my pores stand out! I guess I'm just going to quit wearing make up. My skin tone isn't bad and it's pretty even. I only need minimal coverage. Large pores suck :(
