Foundation & Pores

I am 22 with sensitive skin, and I get the odd blackhead. I wear a bit of foundation from time to time when I go out, but I have heard that it is bad because it makes your pores bigger. Should I use powder or something instead? None of my friends use it and I haven't got a clue. I think I need a makeup lessson!

Provided you are using the right foundation for your skin type, and you remove your makeup thoroughly, I really can't see a problem. The pore problem tends to affect girls who start to wear makeup when they are young, who use heavy products and fail to cleanse properly. Powder is useful if you want your makeup to last that extra mile, and it prevents skin from looking shiny.
