What are your favorite face primers, setting powders, and setting sprays? I currently use ELF primer (the yellow hydrating one and the one I included in this post) for my face. Lately it seems that no matter how much setting powder I use, everything just slides off my face at the end of the day. Please suggest something for me! #oilyskin #primers #settingpowder

It’s possible your skin is dehydrated! Skin can drink foundation, making it look blotchy. Make sure you’re moisturizing well.

What are people’s favorite primers? Is it worth it to get a separate primer for your face and eyes?

I just tried the elf putty for the first time today and I’m in love. I have GIANT pores and this is the first thing that has helped. Foundation is staying put so far. Hope that helps!

I have dry, acne prone skin and I have been trying everything to get rid of my acne for the past year! nothing works (curology, neutrogena light mask, acne washes, tea tree oil, mario badescu- you name it!) does anyone have any recommendations for a natural at home remedy for acne? I’m done with all the chemicals ingredients on my face.

I know you said no chems but the only thing that worked for me was 1 session of a chemical peel (ask for 7 layers) and drink ONLY water in place of any other beverage. ONLy WaTeR!! Don’t believe me, look at my before and afters. Still can’t believe it’s me. - 1 session of a strong chemical peel -Drink Water ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -Oxy gently in circular motions until face starts feeling tingly. -and an oil free moisturizer! Let me know how it goes! Good luck!

Honestly I did like three to four different sessions of chemical peels and they really were life changing. Unfortunately for me my acne continued so I went on Accutane

I use this one and it’s my favorite. I tried it almost two years ago and, since then, i never reached towards a different one. It’s my favorite by far and it has spf in it which is really good for the skin and it helps the foundation stay on longer

I started using this stuff a few weeks ago! My skin stays matte and it keep my makeup in place. Although I have to give my pores some extra TLC as it will clog them if you don’t do a good enough job washing it off!

I need a recommendation on a primer that that fills in pores. I have noticeable pores on my cheeks near my nose. I’ve used quite a few different primers but the pores are still noticeable in that area. Anyone else have this problem that can recommend a primer that works?

Best primer for acne prone combination skin? I’ve been skipping primers because I’m afraid they will clog my pores. But I know I should be using one. Can anyone suggest one that they have had good experience with for acne prone skin?

I like Murad InvisiScar Resurfacing Treatment. It’s not “technically” a primer but it works great as one and even helps clear up acne scars and existing acne clears up quicker. It goes on nicely with just one pump. Smooth, silky texture. It’s also great if you aren’t wearing makeup, it mattifies and helps to make your skin velvety! I love it!

I cannot seem to find a good primer/foundation combo for my large pores. I have spent so much money on different products and cannot find anything that works. I have tried dozens of pore filling primers, blur sticks, powders etc. I’ve tried applying everything different ways, nothing... I’m so upset. I have combination skin. Flaky and dry on the outer part, little bit oily in the tzone but not crazy. but these pores under my chin, over my lips and my cheeks are horrible and it seems the pore fillers are making them look even bigger. HELP!

!! Inexpensive and great for large pores. I have very sensitive skin and this is the only foundation my skin doesn’t have a negative reaction to.
