Apply Visine or something similar if you have a blemish, but otherwise leave it alone. So that your skin looks natural and beautiful, apply your makeup with a soft, clean palette.

You will probably still need touch-ups from time to time, but they will be much less frequent. A primer will also conceal open pores and aid in the smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles.
