No matter how good your foundation is, sometimes you need a little help to get that smooth, flawless look you’re going for. If you have large pores, it’s not always easy to do. That’s why using a primer for large pores is so important. We researched some of the best products out there to help you find the one best suited for your skin type. Before we get to our top picks, let’s take a look at some of the main things you should know.
Skin Type: Most of these products are made for any skin type but if you have special concerns about your skin, you’re in luck. We included a variety of products that cover oily, aging, dry, and sensitive skin specifically.
Package Size: These primers all come in small sizes around one-ounce. That may not seem like a lot but keep in mind that you don’t need to use much with each application. A little really does go a long way.
Paraben-Free: Parabens used to be commonly used as a preservative in beauty products but there has been research that suggests they may cause hormonal disruptions and have a link to cancer. All but one of these products is paraben-free.
Use: There are a few different ways to use primer. Most of them can be used alone or under makeup and several of them can be used over makeup as well. We found a nice mix so you have plenty of options.
Color: While a lot of these products look like they have some color to them, they all blend into your skin. Some of them are translucent and add a bit of shimmer while others are transparent.
Organic: We know that going organic is important to a lot of people so we made sure we included some great organic options for you. There are a couple of awesome organic products as well as vegan-friendly options.
Now that you know what to look for, let’s take a look at our reviews. If you don’t have a lot of time, start at the top of our list with our top and budget picks. That will give you a good idea about the variety available. Keep reading if you can, though. These products are all really unique and you never know which one will be the right one for you. Are you ready? Let’s get started.
