Large pores on the nose and forehead: it doesn't have to be. How to cover enlarged pores with makeup and concealer (and not look pasted).
Okay, let's start with the bad news: you can't shrink your pores. Unfortunately it does not work. The good news (if you will): With the right products and a little practice, you can make your pores look a little smaller and finer.
This will make your enlarged pores look smaller
You need: Liquid foundation and a fluffy, curved makeup brush
This is how you do it: Pump a little foundation onto the back of your hand. Now swipe the brush tip over it a few times so that the bristles are evenly coated with the product. Now work from the center of the face (forehead, nose, chin) outwards with small, circular movements. Apply a little mattifying powder to the T-zone, done.
Why it works: The circular, slightly bobbing movement helps to fill the pores and give the impression of a smoother surface - without completely covering the face. If you just wipe the product, the make-up stays on the surface and the complexion quickly looks plastered. And it also quickly appears blotchy and uneven, as the pores literally suck in parts of the foundation.
