Pore Fillers: Hiding Acne & Scars

Hello Babes!

I always get asked the best products for hiding pores, filling in lines, & smoothing out pimples and scars! Well you are in luck because I have compiled some of my favorite products below for just this! Pores are inevitable, you cannot get rid of them, but you can minimize and hide them with the right technique. Often people are afraid of makeup when they have acneic or scarred skin because it can make it look “CAKEY” if not applied the correct way. Layering more and more product on will only leave you looking overly frosted. Primer and Pore Fillers will be your best friend if you struggle with texturized skin. Keep reading to learn my favorites at the moment…


Pore Fillers / Line Fillers / Scar Fillers:

Fillers are usually clear/ or flesh tone and are best when applied with the fingers directly to the skin. Focus on the T-zone if your pores are large in these areas. For scars/wrinkles you can apply these with fingers to the area as well. Apply lightly so that you are not soaking up a lot of the product into your hands. Let dry and foundation can be applied over with a Beauty Blender- this is the best tool for hiding texture.


  1. NYX Pore Filler – A nude smooth consistency, this pore filler is AMAZING, and for the cheap price it is definitely a must buy. Get porcelain doll like skin before coverage with this beautiful filler! $11 {ACNE SKIN SUGGESTION}


  1. theBalm – Time Balm – Pink tone pore filler, very velvety finish to the skin. Let it dry for atleast 5 minutes before applying foundation $29


3. Clarins Skin Smooth Perfect – This one is by far my favorite when it comes to fillers. It is thick and smooth, leaves the skin feeling poreless basically!! I use this on usually every single client for that perfect skin finish before foundation $28
