All I can find are posts about large pores and oily skin or acne I have large pores and dry skin. Very large pores! I have tried so many makeup brands that have good coverage for the pores but they all enhance the dry parts of my face. I wash, scrub, tone, prime, all that so please just makeup talk not skin care, in sincerity.....Mac was last "send back" it just sat in each pore, enhancing.

It's not the foundation you need to focus on, it's the finishing powder. You need one that produces an airbrush effect. I have large pores and dry skin too, I use tinted moisturizer and finish it with Smashbox Halo powder, which is moisturizing and airbrushed the pores. It is tinted and provides extra coverage, if you don't need the extra cover Make Up Forever HD finishing powder is great too and feels silky.

None of these products are cheap, but I don't scimp on my skin or hair. They are investments in "me".

Foundation, mineral powders, pressed powders, shadows, blushes, face wash, scrubs, etc. it's not in stores, purchased through individual consultants. You can find one at www.arbonne.com It's on the spendy side but I love it and what it's done for my face in my "old" age compared to the over the counter make ups and face washes.

Treat your face with witch hazel and a moisturizer. Instead of covering up the problem, treat it.

Is halo better than photofinish people rave about?

I think so, it comes in a huge tub and is more moisturizing.

 Have you ever used Clinique? They have different formulas for different skin types and they're all hypoallergenic. I've used Clinique for about 15 years now and absolutely love it.
