Foundation for very large pores and dry skin?

I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion for a foundation, any price, for covering large pores. I have dry skin and all I can find are suggestions for oily, acne prone skin.when I use the full coverage products they make  my pores intensified. I wash, scrub, tone, and treat, so in all sincerity ease do not give me advice on "treating" the problem. It's in my genes! :(

I have no idea. When I use foundation its bare minerals. Really light but covers fully. You should go to a make up store like sephora or something that offers a lot if brands and ask them. They will let you try products until you find one that works.

Benefit's pore fessional is a great product to use before foundation also maybe go for a gel foundation and a lot of times it has to do with your application, if u use a flat brush and buff it in the skin u will fill them and make them look less visible, also u can pat concealer on scars don't smear, pat and press in the skin.

I'm not much help with the foundation part but I have a question.. Have you gone to a skin specialist and they told you that you had dry skin? I'm only asking because I am an esthetician and in all my years people with dry skin do not have large pores. So I'm just wondering if what you are using to "treat" the problem is really making it worse.. Sorry I know you said nothing about washing and whatnot, but I'm just curious.

i use mac studio fix but and i liked it at first but now it seems toio heavy on my face. I was thinking of tryin bare minerals. I hear it's very light on your face and gives an airbrushed or natural look

Go to a clinique counter. They are very good about skin.

Try Cover Girl, most of their makeup is not of oily, acne prone skin.

No I haven't but I used to have oily skin as teenager so I know I do not now. Foundation no matter what I do just looks Caked on. What can I do about pores, are there any injections or laser treatments for them? Also have blackheads in half of them still from teenage years....
