2. Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Primer
This primer is one of the bestsellers by the Benefit makeup brand for at least two reasons.

Second, it has a nearly magical effect on your pores, making them nearly invisible even before you apply the remaining layers of makeup.

Plus, it works great during summer heat and helps your makeup stay put for up to 12 hours.
5. Becca Backlight Priming Filter Primer
If you want to splurge on your next primer purchase, we suggest going for the Becca primer.
