Monsoon-ready: Makeup Tips

Read on to know how to get monsoon-ready with the right makeup look for the season…

Rains are a sight for sore eyes in this scorching heat and beautiful women out in the monsoons just add to its romantic flavor. Now before you start picturing yourself as Sridevi from Mr. India, just glance at your reflection after a few hours in a humid, rain-struck day. Recovering from a mini heart attack? We thought so. Raccoon eyes, washed up face and frizzy hair are the villain we’re all fighting in our romantic dream sequence this monsoon. But worry not, all you downpour-loving divas! We list some must-haves in your bag to keep you looking pretty…

Rainy tips

  • Excessive foundation use is the main cause of running make-up in the rains. So the first tip is to stay away from heavy makeup as much as possible. Just stick to the bare essentials like a good Beauty Benefit cream or a tinted moisturizer. If you find it indispensible to use a base, make sure it’s a thin coat which is water resistant.  Here powder will prove to be your best friend, offering a slight shimmer to your face while masking any flaws. It will stick to your complexion better than any foundation and will give your spotless effect with just a few quick touch ups a day.
  • Think rain, think waterproof mascara. Normal mascaras quickly smudge when in contact with humidity so make sure to opt for a special formula that will resist the extreme weather conditions. While at it, keep your eyebrows in shape with threading and hair gel for you cannot use eyebrow pencil during a downpour.
  • Stocking up on water proof eye make-up is a no brainer if you want to avoid raccoon eyes. Kajals, liners all MUST be waterproof. Makeup artists recommend using cream shadows instead of powder and natural and sheer colors like beige and pastels rather than dark eye shadows. These are bound to make your eyes sparkle even when it’s gloomy outside.

  • A common mistake we tend to make in the rains is using a blush of inappropriate texture. The rainy days scream for complex compositions, that’s why the golden rule when sporting a monsoon-proof makeup is to choose a mousse or cream blush that can resist the impact of humidity. Smashing tip: use a bit of lipstick and spread it with your fingernails. The effect is just as gorgeous as with the use of blush.
  • Lip gloss is the top notch no-no beauty product of the monsoon season. It might come in contact with humidity and smudge terribly. Go for a good lipstick in a bright shade this season to light up your lips. Matte ones are a great bet because they have long lasting staying power. Using a lipliner is crucial to save your lipstick from bleeding and further increase its staying power.
  • Hair woes are the worst when it rains, so keep off from those elaborate hairdos. Your mane is already suffering from the dry-wet-dry-wet routine, so it’s upkeep should be simple and easy. A good cleansing shampoo and moisturizer should be in your hair care arsenal. Make sure you use a light leave in conditioner to keep the frizz at bay. Avoid using serums and mousse. Finally, avoid blow drying or straightening it. Just leave it as it is and use funky clips to keep it loosely together.
