Though I’ll be watching Coachella from my couch (thank goodness for YouTube) this year, I’m convinced the new Ulta products for April 2019 would be all I need to conquer the festival circuit. Compared to most events, outside concerts always present the unique challenge of having to stay sun-protected despite being, well, directly under the sun. There’s also the looming threat of melting makeup and a humidity-prone hairstyle. And that doesn’t even scratch the surface when you consider navigating crowds, standing in long lines for food, and keeping track of all your friends.
Thankfully, crafting a beauty look that fits a boho chic or glittery aesthetic can be the least of your concerns. As someone who always has her eye on the New Arrivals section of Ulta, I can confirm that literally everything you would need to survive the elements is in the first few pages. For instance, my favorite lip balm brand is expanding its repertoire with “face base” cleansers and moisturizers, while two other makeup brands have created some of the most vibrant eye palettes I’ve seen so far this year. And as with nearly all of Ulta’s products, these are affordable so you don’t have to let it sit in your cart while you contemplate spending more money than you anticipated.
