We don’t recommend covering pores with makeup as a long-term solution.
Makeup will often enlarge the pores further and if the makeup is not thoroughly removed this can have an adverse effect. We highly recommend you try these treatments and these products to actively target large pores, if it is a skin concern of yours.
Once you have a thorough skincare regime in place, primers are the best thing to smooth the surface of the skin in preparation for makeup.
Primer will visibly reduce the shine and minimise the appearance of pores. It is always important to use a primer that suits your skin i.e. liquid primers are ideal for drier skin types and a thicker gel like primer for oily skin.
