              One of my favorite primers! provides excellent coverage and events out your skin. Fills in pesky deep pores - especially around the nose area- and allows foundation to give you that air brushed look.

                I love this product to cover up my large pores. I apply it before putting on foundation when going out. If cover up pores and gives a smooth surface. Some days I just use the Porefessional to give a smooth loom to my skin.

                      Hi gorgeous! Our POREfessional is a primer so it is considered as makeup. This pore-minimizing primer is best for hiding the appearance of pores and fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin. If you're looking to control all-over shine, we recommend the POREfessional: agent zero shine! This shine-control powder instantly minimizes shine and helps smooth the look of pores. The invisible translucent shade is perfect for every skin tone. xoxo B

                      A:

                      Yes, if your main concern is to minimize the appearance of pores, you can certainly apply all over as a primer. Alternatively, you can spot treat areas of concern with The POREfessional, then apply another primer all over the face to target additional concerns, such as Stay Flawless to extend your makeup's wear to up to 15 hours, or "That Gal" to brighten up a dull complexion.
