Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
Creates a perfect canvas for foundation application with lightweight, oil-free, silky blend of vitamins A and E, grape seed extract and green tea. You can wear this alone or under foundation to increase its longevity, this unique formula helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores for visibly softer skin with a velvety smooth finish.

Becca Ever Matte Poreless Priming Perfector
EverMat is one of our personal favorites because it eliminates excess oil for long-lasting matte skin. This formula is sweat and humidity resistant, and free of silicone, oil, alcohol and fragrance.
Nars Pore Refining Primer
Another great oil-free primer that instantly refines the look of pores, regulates shine and mattifies the skin to create an immaculate canvas.

This primer works particularly well with skins concerned with controlling oil and shine.
