This summer certainly has started with a bang! My age-old problem of large pores goes into overdrive as soon as the temperature rises. I have been a makeup artist and writer for 20-years, and I have seen products come and go but nothing ever really seemed to work… until THIS year!
How To Minimize/Treat Large Pores: NARS Pro-Prime Instant Line And Pore Perfector, Benefit Porefessional Agent Zero Shine Powder
I have found some really amazing products to help curb oil production, minimize pores and keep your makeup looking fresh throughout the day! Beauties, REJOICE! I have assembled products both skincare and cosmetic to make your face FLAWLESS!
Let me start with 2 amazing products that I love from La Roche-Posey: Effaclar Mat, a moisturizer for oily skin, and Anthelios 50 Daily Anti-Aging Primer. Effaclar Mat Daily Moisturizer is an overlooked product that helps curb oil production from the inside of the pores. It’s a dual-action product that mattifies skin and helps refine pores. I love this product because it’s non-drying and keeps skin matte without leaving behind a rough texture.
Anthelios 50 Anti-Aging Primer is an amazing product that not only blurs fine lines and imperfections, but has a sunscreen of SPF 50! The unique dry-gel texture goes on skin beautifully and helps to lock in makeup. No worries about makeup balling up on your skin! It’s a great product if protecting your skin is your main beauty concern.
One product line that is on my radar is Vichy. I have tried some products over the last few weeks, and I can’t say enough good things about them. My skin has NEVER looked better! The pricepoint falls between mass aisle and department store products. FYI- Vichy falls under the L’Oréal umbrella of companies and they share patented ingredients with each other. What does that mean for you and I? It means you are getting quality ingredients that really WORK for your skin!
In the coming months, I will be telling you more about this amazing skincare line. The product I am loving at the moment is LiftActiv Serum 10, a very lightweight serum that sinks into the skin to produce firmer, tighter skin! I had HUGE pores on my cheeks and wasn’t able to find anything to alleviate the issue.
Joey New York Quick Results Correct-A-Line For Face And Eyes Filler, Primer: How To Reduce The Look Of Large Pores, Fine Lines, Wrinkles
Well, Serum 10 may not pay my bills, but my pores shrunk virtually overnight! I use it twice a day, under moisturizer if needed. My fine lines around my mouth and forehead were reduced. I am turning 41 in 2 weeks and was considering injections. NO LONGER NECESSARY! The secret ingredient in this product is rhamnose, a sugar derived from a plant. It is a proven ingredient that stimulates total skin rejuvenation. It also contains hyaluronic acid, which plumps and smoothes the skin! I could go on and on, but I want to share other wonderful products that are just as fabulous.
Too Faced Cosmetics has 3 great makeup products to aid with large pores: Primed and Poreless is a primer that instantly makes pores disappear. Its gel-like texture glides on the skin, unlike other primers I’ve tried. You can apply blush right on top for instant perfection.
If bronzing is something you love, than you MUST have Too Faced Bronzed and Poreless Bronzer. This bronzer is the perfect shade for light to medium skintones like me. It blends seamlessly, so no dirty-looking faces here. The product virtually makes your pores disappear. Total face magic! And to set your face, you must try Primed and Poreless Loose Powder. This product makes any foundation HD-ready. It also cuts down on shine for a fabulous finish!
Last but not least, if you like the ease of a spray, you must try Skindinavia Makeup Primer Spray and Makeup Finishing Spray. Both of these magical products lock your makeup in place! The Makeup Primer Spray makes a thin barrier between your skin and foundation. Virtually locking your makeup into place, you can also lightly spray this product onto your eyeshadow and concealer brushes to set product. A makeup artist’s dream, it sets makeup for 18-hours of wear!
Well, there you have it! My dream arsenal of wonderful products in all textures and types to minimize pores and give you a flawless finish!
