priming over drywall and mud

I installed new "green" drywall in the bathroom- Taping and mudding al done- sanded etc... I am ready to prime now but it always seems to bring out the flaws from the new taping job and does not cover that well- Any tricks as to what kind of primer to use or any other prep work needed to make the new drywall look nicer?? I'm not the best taper- but it's pretty smooth all the way around. Wasn't sure if there any other type of product that "hides" and covers fresh drywall better.

After the primer dries you can still go over them with joint compound to "fix" any flaws. don't forget to reprime those areas.

There are hibuild primers to help reduce flaws but they need to be sprayed on with an airless.
