The Formatt Hitech Black Supermist 1/16 Diffusion Filter (4 x 5.65") is a great portrait filter since it diffuses minute details of a photo and reduces the overall contrast. This filter creates milder diffusion than a standard Supermist with one of the benefits being that it does not open up shadow areas as much.
