Mineral makeup issues

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've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
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.

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