Dear Beauty Banter,
I generally have pretty good skin but I have large pores around my nose. Is there a way to cover them or minimize their appearance with makeup?

Focus on your skincare regimen to get rid of large pores. Large pores are usually due to excess oil or dirt on your face. A great way to minimize them is to buy face scrub and use it twice a week. The scrub will not only get rid of any dry skin but also any dirt, makeup, and oil trapped in your pores. Before applying your makeup use a toner, moisturizer, and then follow with a primer such as Smashbox’s photo finish. This will minimize any pores you’re worried about and make your skin from “pretty good” to flawless.
