You know when you see someone with a glowing complexion and you think, "wow, they've got it all together"? Maybe they actually do — or maybe they're just using the right products. And if it's high time you update your own makeup arsenal of glow-getters, you'll want to check out the new beauty products at Ulta.
When applying makeup, it can be tricky to achieve a glow that looks natural and effortless. Some highlighters seem to overdo it, giving your skin a glittery, strobe-like shine instead of a dewy, glistening appearance. Plus, it can feel like a lot of extra work figuring out the best places to swipe on a highlighting powder after already applying foundation, concealer, and powder.
Luckily, Ulta's hundreds of new arrivals include several one-step products that will not only give you an all-over glow, but also seamlessly integrate into your existing routine.
If you already use a primer underneath your foundation and concealer, swap it out for Revlon's $14 PhotoReady Rose Glow Hydrating + Illuminating Primer. It's a true multi-tasker because it moisturizes, smoothes, and adds luminosity to your face at once for a healthy, rosy glow — no highlighter necessary.
Those who don't dare part with highlighting products are in luck too, with new releases aimed at achieving a natural shine. Try bareMinerals BAREPRO Glow Highlighter for $28, which comes in four glowy shades ranging from a coppery bronze to an iridescent petal pink. The versatile liquid formula can be applied to high points of the face for concentrated glow, or mixed in with your daily foundation to give your whole face a subtle gleam.
Several setting sprays and finishing powders enriched with opalescent ingredients are also available in Ulta's new arrivals, providing simple ways to obtain a glowy complexion. The beauty store's in-house brand even released two iridescent sprays of its own to set your makeup for just $10 each. Bonus: The sprays can be used on your body as well for subtle radiance all over.

Revlon PhotoReady Rose Glow Hydrating + Illuminating Primer
Smooth a few drops of this double-duty primer across your face before applying foundation. The rose quartz extract brings glow, and hydrating oil beads provide a dose of moisture that lasts all day.
COVER FX Illuminating Setting Spray
Setting sprays are great for helping your makeup last all day, but this one works double time by also giving your face a healthy, glowing finish.
Ulta Illuminating Rose Gold Setting Spray
Spray this rose water-infused makeup setter on your face to keep it moisturized, but not overly shiny. Hydrated skin is less likely to over-produce oil, so this will help skin from getting slick.
Ulta Illuminating Pearl Setting Spray
For a pearly glow, use this pearl setting spray that counts actual pearl extract as an ingredient. The fast-drying formula won't leave skin looking wet.
bareMinerals BAREPRO Glow Highlighter
bareMinerals' highlighter can be as high-impact as you want — blend it directly onto the high points of your face for concentrated glow, or put a few drops in your go-to liquid foundation to give it a boost of luminosity.
Iconic London Illuminator
Mix this concentrated illuminating liquid in with a moisturizer or primer before you apply foundation for a lit-from-within look. It comes in three shades: champagne gold, pearly pink, and rich bronze.

This fresh-smelling setting spray is infused with watermelon and cucumber for a summery vibe. Spray it all over your face to keep makeup in place and provide a dose of pearly shine.
Too Faced Tutti Frutti - Fresh Squeezed Highlighting Drops
This super-lightweight formula adds tons of shine for a radiant look. Add a few drops to foundation for a subtle sparkle, or use it alone to bring a megawatt glow. It comes in a golden champagne and a warm pink shade.
Ulta Mineral Illuminating Setting Powder
If you're a fan of powder formulas, this affordable product from Ulta's own beauty brand fits the bill. This one is lightweight and talc-free, so it won't settle into lines or irritate skin. Mineral pigments smooth skin and provide subtle radiance.
