Visible pores are the bane of every beauty girl’s existence, especially when you’re in pursuit of flaw-free skin. But like we always say, if you’re not born with it, fake it. With the invention of pore-erasing primers, you can finally ignore the fact that your skin is covered in tiny perforations.

Pore-erasing primers add a layer of smoothness over your skin, spackling over crater-like pores and diminishing any bumps. The best part is that they’re virtually invisible. You’ve got to see it to believe it!
