The 6 Best Primers for Large Pores
What interferes with an otherwise flawless face of makeup more than large pores? We’re betting you’d be hard pressed to come up with an answer. If pores are a problem for you, you’ve likely already exhausted your options, using your skin care regimen to tackle the issue. But the truth is, while you can help minimize the appearance of pores with potent products—you can’t get rid of your pores. On the bright side, with the help of the right makeup primer, no one has to know about your #1 complexion concern—you can keep your large pores under wraps. Keep clicking to discover six primers for large pores that you’ll want to try ASAP!
NYX Professional Makeup Pore Filler
We’ll be the first to say, there’s nothing not to love about a multi-tasking product. Most makeup primers do a myriad of things—from creating a smooth base to making makeup last longer. Even better is when they can be used in a multitude of ways. This pick certainly fits the bill, the primer provides a satiny finish that helps to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and can be used over top of, under, or without makeup.
L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base
You may be under the impression that in order to “fill” your pores, a product has to look and feel heavy, but that’s far from the truth. Primers that are meant to combat large pores can be lightweight, just like this option from L’Oréal. The silky formula glides onto skin, helping to hide the look of pores, smooth lines, and camouflage imperfections.
Urban Decay Optical Illusion Complexion Primer
We can all agree, making your pores “disappear” with primer is nothing short of magical. Thus, it’s only fitting for a primer to be named Optical Illusion—that’s exactly what a primer is. You may still have large pores after using, but not that anyone can see. This smoothing, pore-perfecting option, formulated with rosehip and argan oils, is exactly what you need in your makeup bag.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios Daily SPF 50 Primer
Have you considered using your primer as a source of SPF? It may not be your first instinct, but it makes sense to include sun protection as the first step of your makeup routine. In addition to correcting the appearance of pores (along with fine lines and wrinkles), this daily primer offers broad spectrum SPF 50.
Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser
Remember when you were just a kid, and large pores were pretty much the last thing on your mind? Well, you can’t turn back time, but you can strive for a more youthful, practically poreless-looking appearance. Accurately named Baby Skin, this primer helps give the look of smooth, poreless skin.
Lancôme La Base Pro Pore Eraser
Unfortunately for anyone with large pores, the chances are they aren’t the only problematic thing about their skin. Large pores are often accompanied by an overly oily complexion, making it even more essential to pick the right primer. If you have large pores and skin that’s prone to getting greasy, try this instant, pore minimizing primer—which is oil-free.
