Hi! I am looking for a primer or other product that will help hide my pores. I have large pores and I need to find a product to use/include in my everyday makeup routine. I want smooth/ flawless skin...is there something that you recommend? Thanks for helping =)
Have you heard of Benefit's POREfessional primer? I've never used it but it may be something you want to check out!
I have similar problems with my pores and I hate it. I found that using a facial brush (I use one from Olay because clarisonic is pretty expensive) and I massage it in small circles for about 1-2 mins twice daily with either an exfoliant or facial cleanser. It really helps because your pores dilate when they're clogged or have makeup and debris under your skin. It will help treat the problem rather can conceal the symptom.
The thing that has worked amazingly for me is Mary Kay's Microdermabrasion Set. It's one of the best microdermabrasion products on the market and highly affordable considering the cost of a visit to the spa! It contains micro beads that will rub after the outermost surface of your skin off, revealing more radiant skin, reducing clogging of the pores, and also combatting blackheads. It's my HG skin care product. I use it with my Olay exfoliating brush (~$30) as opposed to the Clarisonic because I prefer constant circular movement to the vibration mode on the Clarisonic that don't go full circle. I've also used Olay's exfoliating scrub which is similar but I prefer my Mary Kay. The set is $55 which sounds steep but totally worth it IMHO because you don't need a lot and it's enough for a long time if you're doing 1-2 washes a week with the set. It's actually cheaper for the first step alone, I believe, as the second is a replenishing anti-oxidant-filled moisturizer. My second best is the Olay brush with the exfoliator scrub which you can get at Target (for the small tube included) or BJ's (a larger tube). Hope that helps!!
Too faced primed and poreless is pretty good. You should give that a try.

Benefit PoreFessional and a cheaper one I like is Loreal Photo Finish. Both are thicker feeling and silicone based.
oh my gosh thanks for responding! I will FOR SURE look into these products. The Benefit one sounds really good! Question is the Olay brush mentioned the same as the ProX? I recently saw it at Costco and I was interested. Thanks for the wonderful tips!!
pressed powder works amazing to fill pores if you got more of an oily skin, if you have dry use a really good primer and foundation, but if you're gonna use the pressed powder remember to roll and press the powder puff on the skin to get a flawless pore free face hope it helps
