1. Prime your face. Smooth the surface of your skin with a silicone-based gel; this fills in the tiny holes at the opening of the pores. We like: Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-.Hour Perfecting Primer, $30; sephora.com.
2. Sponge on foundation. Go for a lightweight formula with exfoliating salicylic acid to unclog pores while hiding them. We like: Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfecting Makeup, $27; clinique.com.
