Ooh, RedCatWaves, thanks for the link for the free sample! You're the best. I've heard about the Velvet, but it's too expensive.

I've been using aloe gel as a primer and it works quite well. It keeps the makeup from settling into my big nose pores (yes, I do have a big nose and big pores ).
I got my Soothing care powder gel sample yesterday and tried it today. It does feel exactly like DHC velvet. If it doesn't break me out I will probably buy some.
Thanks to everyone for the recommendations!

I have some of that powder gel (I had a coupon a while back), but I've never used it. Now I can get it out of the linen closet and give it a try because I have horribly large pores too. Thanks for the suggestion!!

I bought some of the Monistat gel. Not sure if I see a difference after I put on makeup, but it makes my skin feel like a doll's.

I am still using the MM by Everyday Minerals, but I'm still not entirely pleased with it. I have nice new brushes but they're not miracle workers; I think my technique needs more work.

I use those velvety powder puffs for applying mineral makeup instead of a brush. The pads are very soft, disposable, the makeup doesn't float around so much, and it gives a smoother finish for me. Just put a little bit of makeup in the lid and dip the pad in lightly and swirl around on your face. I like them much more than a brush.

question - what is silicone really? i tried on a primer at MAC which was silky smooth, but I passed because it was silicone based.

Don't know if these helps, but most people are OK with using silicones on their skin. Usually doesn't clog pores or cause breakouts, & doesn't build up because your skin is always shedding old cells and growing new ones. Silicones in a skin product won't absorb into your skin, but can help hold in moisture.

I've been using the monistat anti-chaf when the temps are cool. I'm hoping it helps protect my facial skin from cold winds. In the summer, though, I go easy on silicone products.

Oooh, really? The little pads work? Maybe I'll order that everyday minerals sample kit and try a pad then before I buy a brush. I do have some largish (sp) powder brushes, wonder if they'd work.

The powder puffs I use have a little cloth 'handle' on them like these -
