How to Cover Large Pores
Foundation settles into large pores, making them appear even larger. The solution to covering large pores is to use a translucent silicone primer as a base under a light application of foundation. The translucent silicone primer base settles inside the pores and evens out the skin's surface, so pores are minimized when foundation is applied.
Cleanse skin with an exfoliating scrub to remove excess sebum from pores.
Apply a thin layer of noncomedogenic moisturizer to your skin. Wait five minutes for the moisturizer to absorb into the skin.
Smooth a translucent silicone-based cosmetic primer over the entire face. Wait two minutes for the primer to dry.
Apply a noncomedogenic foundation to your skin. To apply the foundation, pour a dime size amount of the foundation onto a working surface (back of your hand, paper towel, ceramic dish). Lightly pat a foundation cosmetic applicator sponge into the foundation. Brush the sponge against your skin in an upward motion to blend the foundation into your skin. Apply the foundation sparingly for a natural look.
Sweep a noncomedogenic loose translucent face powder onto your face, using a powder brush.
