    PRIMER. You put it on your face before foundation to smoothen and retexture skin. Several types available - anti-dull skin, anti-shine, anti-redness...or, if you have normal clear skin, there are plenty of clear/transparent gel type primers out there.

    A pore minimising cream won't work since it's impossible to actually minimise them; you can only apply makeup cleverly to make them appear smaller.

    primer? i swear that's key
    i only have visible pores across a strip of my nose, and i just don't bother using make up there as i'ms cared of blocking them and noone seems to notice them anyway :/ i'd rather have a slightly darker strip there than awkward foundation i have to fuss over

    OK I'm a guy and I have large pores on my nose and just to the left and right of the nose.

    My miracle? NOSE STRIPS (Bioré is the best but expensive, also try Witch). Works like a treat.

    Also pore-minimising masks from The Body Shop and Bioré

    there is a clinique make up product that me and my sister use underneath make up or just by itself. I really recommend it. I have a dry nose and i find it is fine as long as you have moisturised beforehand. Sadly total prevention is impossible as it's down to genetics, although the problem can be reduced with a good skin regime.

    apologies for any bad grammar....

    edit: i should state the clinique product doesn't get rid of them it just helps cover them
