One of the biggest things I hear about as a makeup artist is pores….mostly in the form of a question about foundation like “will it sink into my pores?” or “will it make my pores stand out?” and then that is sometimes followed by “what is the best way to make my pores smaller?”—All legitimate questions!!! One of the best ways to explain pores is an analogy that I heard in esthetician school. You have to think of pores as one of those ziplock bags….When you put things in those bags, they begin to gape open and appear larger at the top or “mouth”. Then, when you take whatever you put in out, the gape or top of the bag closes back up. This is a great way to think of pores. You cannot make pores smaller….but you can make them APPEAR smaller by getting the “stuff” out of them. Clean pores=smaller looking pores just like an empty ziplock=a smaller looking ziplock. The upside to you beauties with large pores?-You generally have more oily skin which keeps more moisture in your skin and can help you age better
I generally do not like face primers…I haven’t seen any that make a big enough difference (without interfering with my foundation application) that warrant the $30 or so price tag….until I met this:
I am sorry that I don’t have a before and after picture….I think my only chance for you to see the difference would be with a macro lens…and, well, I don’t have one of those so you are just going to have to take my word for it. This stuff is impressive! While there is nothing on the market that is going to make you look like you have no pores, this does a great job of minimizing them and smoothing out your skin tone. It also has a great mattifying effect! Stop by Ulta or your nearest department store with a Benefit counter to try it out…I think you will love it!
