Monsoon is finally here and looks like it’s here to stay. While we are definitely heaving a sigh of relief, does this mean goodbye to makeup? Definitely not. We women love to dress up and look good, be it rain or sunshine; so the rains won’t deter us from looking our best. However, wearing makeup in the rains does call for a certain amount of caution and care. With dripping mascara and eye makeup, we don’t want to look like we just had a break up, right? So while going waterproof is the key, here are some must-have beauty essentials for the rains and also a few tips on how to make them last longer.
Matt-finished primer and foundation:
A primer is a base for applying foundation or face makeup. Investing in matte-finished primer will allow your makeup to stay smoother and last longer. Also, try to go for powder-based foundation, i.e compacts, rather than cream-based foundations. A creamy formulation will melt as soon as you step out in this humid weather.
Here, going waterproof is the key.
Eye-liner: Use a waterproof eyeliner in different hues and shades. They will make you look gorgeous and brighten your dark gloomy day.
Mascara: Wearing a normal mascara may make you look like a raccoon in the rains, but going for a waterproof one will definitely add the much-needed drama in your eyes with those high-definition lashes.
Stay away from sticky lip gloss, go matte this monsoon. Lip gloss tends to smear and run when moisture levels are high, so pop on some bright matte lip color.
While we said a big no to creamy formulations for your eyes, lips and face, they are a big yes for your cheeks. Cream-based blushes get easily absorbed on your cheeks and give them a radiant, glowing and natural look.
It is very important to invest in a good makeup remover, as you are going to use a lot of waterproof makeup, which does not come off easily.
So go on, girl. The rain cannot stop you from looking your best.
