Why does my skin not look smooth when I wear makeup?
Makeup loves settling into pores, causing the skin to look uneven. The larger the pores, the more uneven your skin may look.
Tip #1: Use a pore-filling primer before applying your makeup. This is a great way of smoothing your skin. Ingredients to look out for include dimethicone and phenyl trimethicone.

Tip #2: Are you cleansing your skin properly after wearing face makeup? If a proper cleanser is not used, the makeup residue can settle into your pores. In the short term this causes blockage, leading to pimples, and in the long term it can make your pores bigger.
