Monsoon has finally arrived. Apart from the long drives, coffee and hot-lip smacking snacks, monsoon also accompanies the fear of your makeup getting washed away. With some slight changes in your makeup routine, you can make sure that your makeup stays put even when it is raining like cats and dogs. Here are some useful tips and tricks to make your makeup monsoon-proof.
1. Primer is the key
Be it any season, a primer is very necessary to make your makeup last long. Since monsoon is the time, when you have the fear of your makeup getting washed out, choose a primer according to your skin type. A primer preps up your face and enhances the look of your makeup.
2. Ditch the foundation
Due to all the humidity, applying layers of foundation is only going to make the matters worse. Instead opt for BB creams or tinted moisturizers. To achieve that flawless look, use a concealer to hide away all those flaws. Use a compact powder to make your makeup stay put for a long time.
3. Opt for waterproof eye makeup
This need not be mentioned but still opt for waterproof mascaras and eye pencils. For the time being, skip your Kajal and use waterproof colored eyeliners. Waterproof mascaras would make sure that you do not end up with raccoon eyes. Say no to liquid eyeliners and choose gel or cream eyeliners as liquid liners are prone to getting washed away in rains.
4. Creamy over powdery
Powdery eye shadows and blushes have high chances of being washed away by the rains. Creamy texture of eye shadows and blushes would make sure that they blend better into your skin. Make sure you blend properly so that there are minimal chances of getting off.
5. Bid goodbye to eyebrow powders
Use eyebrow pencils or gels for filling the eyebrows rather than eyebrow powders. Pencils and gels have creamy texture and stay on for longer time than eyebrow powders.
6. Mattes all the way for lips
For your lips, use matte tints instead of glossy or creamy ones. Mattes have higher staying power. Glossy or creamy tints may bleed due to the humidity whereas mattes with dry formula stay put on for the whole day.
7. Set using a makeup spray
The last and the most important step in your makeup routine during monsoons should be to use a good makeup spray. Just like a primer, a setting spray makes your makeup spill proof for a great amount of time.
