Hi there!

What steps do you take to create a long-lasting makeup throughout the day?

As we usually need many steps to prepare, especially on the base makeup. It’s important how we choose the product which matches your skin type and have stronger resistance to smear when wearing mask… So many things!

In this article, I will focus on how to create smooth skin because it’s simple. Just by applying the best item, “pore primer” will make your skin smoother and help your foundation stay on better.

After applying foundation


-My real reviews-


‘HOURGLASS’ has very smooth texture like moisturizer and makes my nose look brighter. However, the finish look is heavier than ‘MAYBELLINE’ and it creates unevenness.


‘it COSMETICS’ makes my nose the brightest! No need to apply color-correcting primers. And it’s not white so it still have the natural look but doesn’t match with some skin tone and making them look too white.

‘MAYBELLINE’ has lightest finished texture but no chromatic compensation. It doesn’t matter with foundation or if you don’t have mottled skin.


The last item from ‘benefit’, it’s the most famous pore item out of all. It make my nose smoother and matte but it might not match dry skin. That’s why I also have sensitive dry skin. During application, I don’t have any issues. It looks nice and long-lasting but nose becomes dry after removing it.




See you next time!
