13 Water-Based Makeup Products to Try Now

Effortlessly glowing makeup — it’s something that everyone wants, but sometimes can be hard to achieve. One secret to getting the look? Try using water-based makeup products. They’re great, not only because they don’t add excess oil to your skin, but they also leave your face of makeup looking natural and fresh. Take a trip to your closest beauty store and try out these 13 water-based makeup products to get the glow.

1. Cover Girl LashBlast Volume Mascara ($9): Yep, everyone’s cult favorite mascara is made with mostly water. Swipe on this mascara to get full, voluminous lashes for an everyday look.

2. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($29): On the hunt for a full-coverage concealer that looks super natural on the skin? NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer will be your new go-to.

3. Vincent Longo Water Canvas Blush ($44): Springtime is rolling around, and you know what that means? It’s time for a new bright pink blush, of course.

4. Laura Mercier Radiance Bronze Primer ($34): Using a primer is a must for super long days. But if you don’t want to achieve a matte finish, opt for Laura Mercier’s Radiance Bronze Primer for that subtle dewy look.

5. Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner ($16): Step aside, black pencil liner. This water-based blue glitter liner is here to steal the show.
