We all have a way to apply this, so I'd love to hear what are some of the ways?

I apply the product with my fingers to my T zone and cheeks, and then kinda just blend it over the rest of my face. I try and avoid applying this product under my eyes, it makes my under eyes look so cakey if I use it there. I also apply a little under my chin and neck.

I use my finger tips. Less is more with this product. If you use too much it will start to bunch up and roll up on your face. If you don't use too much I think it works pretty good.

After I apply my moisturizer and let that soak in, I apply a small amount (less than a dime-sized amount) and start by working it into the T-Zone and spreading to the rest of the surface of my face. I've accidentally used too much and it will flake off. I've seen that turn people off!

Put a small amount on the finger tips and dab it on your face, then use your hands to rub it in (a great alternative would be a large flat brush )

I just use this where i have large pores which is my T zone and cheeks. I highly suggest applying this product with your fingers and take time rubbing it in..really makes a difference. And be careful on how much you squeeze out becasue a very little goes a long way!

I usually just apply it with my fingers, mainly my pointer and middle finger. I use it under my eyes, and then work outwards towards my cheeks. I also use it on my nose, and above my nose between my eyebrows. It's very smooth, and it blends well.

I used to just apply it to my nose and cheeks with my fingers and blending it just like that, but I find that dabbing it in all over where you have large pores with a damp beauty blender or any other makeup sponge makes it last a bit longer and blurs your pores and imperfections out a bit better.

It's best to smooth over the skin and then press in gently in your problem areas. This way it really gets in there and fills in your pores!

I find it works the best when I pat it on. I only have pore issues around my nose, so after I've applied all of my makeup, I take a little dot of this and pat it over my pores, gives a great silky feeling and doesn't seem to clog my pores either!

Press it INTO your skin, rather than rubbing! If you rub, you are enlarging your pores, making them more visible.

I moisturize, let my face dry, then dab this on in tiny amounts with my fingers where needed. Then, when I'm finished, I layer my Too Faced BB Cream in Vanilla Glow over it. :3 It's magical.

I used my Sephora primer for oily skin first on my whole face, then take a small bit of this on my fingertips and pat it only on my cheeks right next to my nose where my pores seem to be the largest. Then I apply foundation with a flat top brush and pay concealer over to seal it a little extra, then finish with powder!

I use my fingers. I know this is supposed to be used to diminish the look of pores, but I really like using it under my eyes- I find it helps the concealer go on much more smoothly. For the rest of my face, I prefer a more mattifying primer, like Urban Decay's.

I use it after my moisturizer in my t-zones like mid forehead down my nose, my chin and most of all right next to my nose in my "sinus" area i guess ill call it...my pores are huge, and using this under all my makeup makes a smooth surface with the illusion of small pores!

I usually apply some oil free moisturizer to my face because I have horribly dry spots then I apply the POREfessional. I just blend it in with my fingers. I sometimes wear it alone or I'll add a little physicians formula pressed powder on top. I don't like having heavy make up on. I like that this product has a little coverage so that I can skip the foundation and such sometimes!
