Is there a way that I can use makeup to lessen the look of my pores?

vtoodler - try using a concealer all over that is just a hint lighter than your regular foundation as a base. Then apply a very light coating of your foundation over that. Flawless!

put concealer in all your face & it must be little pit darker than your original color to hide your pores


then put lighter coating over the concealer & the result will be fantastic

Try mineral makeup with a primer.
Do you think that would work for someone with dry to very dry skin?

For instance, Laura Mercier offers a face primer for dry skin. I've not had luck with mineral makeup, but I did notice that the coverage you get with it is really nice.

I just purchased bareMinerals and I have VERY dry, problematic skin. What I love most about it is that it looks like a powder but it's very creamy feeling on my skin. It feels like it helps nourish my skin. I also use bareVitamins which is very soothing and then I apply my own moisturizer (which is a Vitamin E cream). I apply my bareMinerals over them both and it feels incredible. It's light, but nourished and I'm very pleased. Granted...it has been only two days (lol) but I'm simply thrilled with this line of products.

Mineral makeup has worked well for me . Liquid just seems to absorb into my pores and makes them look bigger. I am real happy with mineral makeup.

Bare Minerals has this Mineral Veil that will fill your pores but won't clog them, and in time has been proven to shrink your pores. Its translucent and can be put on over makeup to make it last alll day

Clinique Pore Perfector is about the only product that comes close to hiding the pores on my nose and the sides of my cheeks. And, if you apply a little product to gentley cover the pores you then can wait a few minutes and go over the same area again with your finger or a sponge to give it a really smooth over-all finish. Like smoothing out clay.

A good foundation that is not cakey is Studio Fix by Mac which I have been using for many, many years. Use this with the primer by Laura Mercier and I am sure the appearance of your pores will be minimized. Another great foundation is Clinique Super Fit foundation - both foundations are available in a range of colours so you should not have any difficulty in finding a match for your skin tone.

I love studio fix by Mac too. It gives medium coverage, easy to apply and the best thing of all, it is available in many colours. With Mac, I can get the exact colour for my skin tone unlike many other foundation brands. I don't use a primer though. What does it serve for?
Thanks.

A primer prepares the skin for make up and you use it after misturiser but before putting any foundation, it ensures that your make up stays put all day and does not slide off. Hope this helps.
