NOTE: Please not this was filmed in HD - HD is VERY unforgiving. In real life - in the mirror - no pores were evident. I had zoomed in here so please bare that in mind with any issues with nose hair (!!!) etc...
Have you ever noticed when you apply some foundations that the pores can suddenly look "bigger" than when you started? Strange isn't it. But as you can see from this - they do get bigger but need "teasing" back into hiding.
Its very important that you use a thick, preferably natural hair brush for this. Shu Uemura, Tom Ford and Cover FX also make these. I used Shu Uemura goat hair brush.
You cannot get the same effect with a normal foundation brush or stippling brush sadly as you need the added pressure these brushes provide.
Erasing every pore on your face is never a good idea unless its for a very important event (wedding etc...) because it can make the skin look very unreal.
I have set with powder but you can see that before powder was used the pores were 99% gone or "better".
Also, bare in mind that even though this looks simple, it can require practice. Often we can be a little "too heavy" with application and this can make the skin look mask like. Not a good look.
I also didn't use a pore minimiser primer etc... these are very good but i wanted to show what was possible with just foundation and a brush.
I used cream foundation but you can use liquid. Liquid tends to be more forgiving than creams.
