Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer-Pore Minimizing ($57)
Primers are a divisive makeup product. Some argue that it does nothing, others live for it. If you fall under the latter, we highly recommend this primer. It mattifies shine all day, but it won't clog pores or cause breakouts. It also blurs the appearance of pores to leave a nice soft finish.
Maybelline FIT ME! Matte + Poreless Foundation ($20)
To control the shine that plagues those with oily skin, this foundation contains a formula that has mirco-powders that makes sure you look matte and it blurs the appearance of pores. It blends in really well and is non-comedogenic.
Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation Mattifying Oil Free ($81)
This foundation is a miracle worker. It has a liquid-to-powder formula that is made of cashmere kaolinite clay, that absorbs any excess oil without leaving the skin dry. It also hides the appearance of acne, scars, and shine.
Dr. Jart+ BB Dis-A-Pore Beauty Balm ($60)
Made with a pore-tightening formula, this BB cream not only gives amazing coverage but it treats acne and controls excessive sebum with the herbal extracts it contains.
BareMinerals Blemish Remedy Concealer ($33)
A good concealer for acne needs to hit that perfect balance between providing natural-looking coverage and not aggravating the blemish it is concealing. This concealer has a creamy texture that blends into the skin really well. It is made with aloe to hydrate the skin, clay minerals to absorb excess oil and shine, and tea tree oil to promote clearer skin.
