I hope you had a great weekend and a great Mother's Day. I am getting over a really nasty cold (that feels like the flu) so I wasn't able to visit back home and see my mom. Once again, my dog Charlie failed to bring me breakfast in bed for Mother's Day! ;)
Since there was no food in the house (I found gummy bears that had seen better days) I had to venture out from Sofa City. I didn't wear any makeup last week, but thought I'd wear some to the grocery store. I threw on some primer and kind of gave up after that.
But when I was in the check out line, the girl scanning my groceries complemented me on my skin. I mumbled a "thanks" to her and didn't think about it until I was finishing this post tonight. It must have been the primer. A few weeks ago, I shared some drugstore primers to hide pores, and many of you wanted a high end version. Try Sephora or your favorite department store for these. Prices will vary. Here are some of the best primers to hide pores:
Comes in 3 sizes
Traditional silicone primer
For each primer you'll see a demo on my pores, zoomed in 300% times, with my freckles a plenty. This is the corner of my nose (the shaded part on the mid left) to right below my eye (top area).
"skin"color, mousse texture
Great for mattiyfing, but not best for hiding pores
best for hydrating skin, silicone-free
White stick with light-medium color in the middle that mattifies and blurs pores
"skin-like" mousse texture
Overall, I really love Smashbox primers, and on my skin, they really help to hide pores. I also prefer primers with the "skin-like" tint to them, like Primed and Poreless and the Porefessional. For dry to combo skin types that want hydration without being greasy, try Hangover. For matte skin and longevity, try MUFE.
I have more primers coming soon!
What is your favorite primer?
