Hey guys I am new to apply makeup last week I purchased the Nars soft Matt foundation. However, after applying it I found the it showcases my pores which I did not like. What could I do to assist with the pores and what primer would you recommend to use with this foundation? 

Re: Foundation

@Purpose19 That particular foundation is VERY matte and depending on your skintype it may be a little drying for you which can absolutely emphasize texture.  However, there are some pore-filling/smoothing primers that you might try, depending on the texture that you like: #Smashbox Photo Finish Smooth & Blur Oil-Free Foundation Primer 1 oz/ 30 mL Tatcha The Silk Canvas Protective PrimerBenefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Pore Minimizing Primer, or the Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Primer 1 oz/ 30 mL .  You have lots more options, but you might take a look at those.  Also, consider trying to get your hands on a mini first if you're on the fence 🙂

Thank you so much. I appreciate your help.
