Before applying makeup, you want your skin to be smooth, bouncy and prepped for foundation and more. This is where blurring primers come in. They work to visibly improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. Ahead, we’ve rounded up eight of our favorite blurring primers to use as the bridge between your skin-care and makeup routines for a filtered, flawless look.

This blurring face primer is infused with a serum and has a universal rosy formula to give your skin a healthy-looking glow. It works by diffusing the appearance of fine lines to give you smoother skin with a soft-focus blur.
NYX Professional Makeup The Marshmellow Smoothing Primer
For a velvety makeup finish, finish off your skin-care routine with this sweet-smelling formula. It blurs lines, minimizes uneven texture and also leaves behind a base that will help your makeup last for hours on end.
Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector
If you choose to keep your makeup light after skin care or opt not to wear it at all, apply this Skin Perfector as the last step in your skin-care routine.
