If you are always thinking about how big your pores are, then you know the struggle is real when it's time to doll yourself up for the day. Rather than making piece with the obvious holes on your cheeks, there are easy ways to minimize your pores before putting on makeup. I personally have always had to fight with big pores on my cheeks and nose, but I never really noticed them because of my minimalist makeup routine. After this year though I started getting into foundation and BeautyBlenders and all that other fun stuff, and noticed how they stuck out when I brushed on foundation and played with powder. It was a total battle.
You put on your expensive, miracle-performing foundation and concealer, follow all the YouTube gurus' tips and tricks, and your cheeks still look like they're masquerading as kitchen sponges. Even worse is when those pore-prone spots become cakey thanks to the product build-up that's trying to mask the problem to begin with. It's very frustrating indeed.
So how does one work around it? Ahead three different makeup artists sound off on how to best fix your pore problem with makeup, listing everything from pore-specific creams to DIY masks. Tackle the problem head on!
