@MissDallasCowboy: @Ms. Noodles:

Thanks ladies! I will definitely have to try a primer out!


@amyisnice: I am the exact same way, Large pores, old Acne scars plus current blemishes. UGH. Good to know a primer helps!

Hi there – I just switched from Benefit ‘Some Kind-a Gorgeous’ to Laura Mercier oil-free foundation.  The Fiance immediately noticed and said my face looked glowing and smooth.  Winning compliments in my book 🙂

I the mineral make up from maybelline that was mention above most of the time (when I wear make up at all). If I want a really good coverage, I wear the cream compact from Merle Norman. A slightly damp sponge (I use just a tad of clinique’s dramatically different gel, but water works in a pinch) makes it go on better.

Oh! Avon sells this really good foundation that has primer/foundation/concealer all in one. And I think Stilla One Step or something like that does the same effect. They both work rather well, just at different prices =]

I use the smashbox primer as well. I love it! They say its actually the first primer that’s proven to shrink pores. I don’t know of that stue but its awesome. Just make sure you blend it in really well.

I bought the Smashbox foundation and powder but I returned them…and I never return anything. They just didn’t work well for me. I love the Cover FX foundation. AMAZING coverage!

I used to use BE, but now I use Makeup Forever HD foundation. I love it.. I don’t find it full coverage or heavy at all, as I know I’ve heard others say in the past they only use it for special occasions. I think it’s more light/medium coverage, but I only use one pump to cover my entire face.

I use Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and light bronzer to add a little glow. LM’s products last a long time and create a flawless look.

I use oil of olay moisterizer, smashbox photofinish primer, and pur minerals foundation.  LOVE pur minerals. 

I used to use bare minerals but I didn’t really like the coverage or how shiny it made my face look.  Pur minerals is wonderful.  My friend also uses it and she lives by it also.  It is also a pressed powder foundation instead of a loose so you can take the compact with you in your purse instead of those little tubs bare minerals has.  Seriously LOVE pur minerals.

I use bare minerals and it is great, I agree that the mineral veil makes me skin seem oily though so I don’t ever use it.  If I feel like I want some extra coverage I will use Neautragena Skin Clearing Foundation.

I do use a primer as well…. this sounds crazy but I actually got this tip from someone on wedding bee: Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel is a really great primer. It is actually the same formula as the smashbox primer but for a lot cheaper. I even used this trick on my wedding day and I didn’t get shiny at all, I had non-existant pores, and my skin looked flawless!!
