7 Primers That Can Visibly Reduce the Appearance of Large Pores

If large pores are a problem for you, then consider switching up your daily skincare routine to help tackle them. While you can’t get rid of your pores altogether, there are some products out there that can help visibly reduce their appearance. Our favorite to reach for? Primer. Ahead, we rounded up seven of our favorite pore-minimizing primers that give you a smooth canvas for a flawless makeup application.

NYX Professional Makeup Pore Filler Targeted Stick

For a targeted stick that works to blur imperfections under or on top of makeup, opt for this NYX formula. It instantly smooths out fine lines and uneven texture to give you a supple canvas for foundation. It also can be used throughout the day to blot excess oil and shine.

IT Cosmetics Your Skin but Better Oil-Free Makeup Primer 

The Your Skin but Better Primer works to extend your makeup wear while refining the look of pores. It also hydrates the skin and is good to use on all skin types, including sensitive. Wear it for a more refined and hydrated complexion.


Dermablend Poresaver Matte Makeup Primer

Poresaver is a mattifying primer that works to minimize the appearance of pores and offers a flawless-looking complexion. Although it does have a matte finish, it doesn’t dry out the skin and is comfortable to wear on its own or under your makeup.


Lancôme La Base Pro Pore Eraser

Large pores are often accompanied by an oily complexion, making it even more essential to pick the right primer. If you have large pores and skin that’s prone to getting greasy, try this instant pore-minimizing primer, which is oil-free.

Maybelline New York Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

Remember when you were just a kid and large pores were pretty much the last thing on your mind? Well, you can’t turn back time, but you can strive for a more youthful, practically poreless-looking appearance. Accurately named Baby Skin, this primer helps give the look of smooth, poreless skin.

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer

Optimal for oily and combination skin, Pores No More is going to become one of your new daily go-tos. It combats dullness and rough texture, absorbs oil and minimizes the look of pores in a flash.

Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Icy Sherbet Primer

This cooling primer is a thick gel formula that glides onto the skin with ease and instantly reduces the appearance of large pores and indentations. We love pairing this under a CC cream or foundation for a silky makeup finish.
