While it probably feels as if summer happened overnight — hello, 90-degree weather! — the beauty industry has been preparing for it on your behalf. Ulta's summer makeup arrivals include sweat-proof products for every step of your makeup routine, from how you prep your skin to the setting sprays you use to lock everything into place. You don't have to be a makeup expert to wield the humidity-fighting cosmetics, either; the only thing complicated about them are the genius formulas each brand uses to help your makeup withstand the hottest days.
First up being primer, of course. Morphe's $12 Equalizer Foundation Primer and Anastasia Beverly Hills' $23 Eye Primer just landed at Ulta, and show just how versatile the product can be. Use Morphe's skin-smoothing primer before your foundation to help the product stay in place during your day, and then dab on a layer of Anastasia Beverly Hills' primer strictly on your lids; the water-resistant formula was created to boost the vibrancy of your eyeshadow colors and keep any delicate powders from smudging.
Then there are the makeup products that include long-wearing power right in their own ingredients list, like Essence's Lash Princess False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara. Regularly retailing at just $4.99, the new waterproof version of the affordable (and cult-famous) mascara is already on sale for just $3.74.
However, one of the most important steps in any summer-proof makeup routine is spritzing on a setting spray. There are a few promising new ones at Ulta (such as the recently released MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Fix+ scents), but one definitely stands out of the crowd: Catrice Cosmetics' HD Active Performance Freezing Spray. It's unexpectedly affordable — retailing at just $7.99 for a 1.69-ounce bottle — with Ulta's website noting it can be used before and after you work out. And when it's the middle of summer and each step outside prompts gym-level sweat, you may be happy you have Catrice's spray on hand.
Regardless of the temperature, Ulta's new additions will make sure you can achieve any look you want to this summer. Ahead, 10 new arrivals at the beauty store to add to your cart ASAP.
