2) Ablative laser treatments.
Though I wouldn't recommend either for pores because of the cost and high chance for side effects.
If you have a lot of blackheads, a series of 20-30% salicylic acid peels will do wonders. Won't shrink your pores, but it will clean them out.

HOW I STAY 100% CLEAR:
Spironolactone (anti-androgen drug)
Betaine HCL with each meal
Avoiding silicones and occlusives in skin/hair products

This may not be what you are looking for because it isn't make-up, but it does give a very matte look. It's non-fat yogurt. I started using it as a mask and love the matte and smoothing effect when it dries. Now when I want a matte look I just spread a dab into my skin and it really does the trick. And since it's a lactic acid it's doing it's job as an AHA as well. I use Greek strained non-fat yogurt Fage gives the smoothest, firmest of those I've tried so far). It does make your skin a bit lighter but believe me, no one will know you have yogurt on your face becasue it doesn't smell when it dries. Also, the effect lasts a lon time, even in the heat. Not sure about sweating while it's on though.

1. Glycolic acid at 10% solution
2. Clay masks [only temporarily]
Salicylic acid is great for getting rid of blackheads however it won't shrink your pores. The cheapest source of SA is aspirin, aspirin masks are great because salicylic acid needs to remain on your skin for a while to work properly.
I find that BP also shrinks pores, though not as dramatically. Have you tried the Regimen yet?
Honestly, instead of trying to find ways to conceal blackheads you are better off actually treating them. A good skincare routine is a lifetime investment, however make up only lasts a day!
