7. Wear Primer
Primers are designed to go onto the face before foundation. They help to keep makeup from seeping into pores, which has two benefits. First, your makeup will look smoother and more consistent.
More importantly, makeup is a great way to clog pores, so if you have to use it, at least use a primer to prevent it from seeping into your pores. If you feel comfortable doing so, cut back on the amount of makeup you wear.
