Simple Beauty Tips And Tricks To Nail A Rainy-Day Make-Up

Does monsoon spell doom for your hair and skin? You don’t have to face monsoon beauty blunders anymore.

Humidity, rain, and heat, when put together, can wreak havoc on your skin and hair. But your make-up is going to suffer the most. Dealing with melting make-up is quite a task during monsoons, and stepping out of your house with multiple layers of make-up may not be the wisest thing to do, and going barefaced is not an option either. But a few make-up swaps can bring about all the difference, helping you survive a rainy day. Here’s everything you can do to get rain-proof make-up during the monsoon.

Say hello to powder-based formulas.

You would not want that creamy eyeshadow or foundation melting down your face in the rainwater, do you? You can avoid such make-up mishaps in the monsoon by switching to powder-based formulas. Opting for a powder foundation will not just offer a matte finish look but will make your foundation last longer.

Switch to waterproof eyeliner and mascara

While rainy days are romantic and fun if you stay indoors, they can be quite catastrophic if you have to go out, especially for a special occasion or a date night. Waterproof make-up is indeed difficult to take off, but it is the best way to prevent your eye make-up from smudging in the monsoon. Switch to waterproof mascara and eyeliner if you do not want raccoon eyes on your special night.

Opt for cream-based blush

Instead of applying creamy formulas for face and eyes, using cream-based eyeshadow and blush is a big yes in the monsoon! So, for a few months, keep your powdery blushes aside and get your hands on a creamy blush.

Avoid glossy lipsticks

Lip glosses are versatile and classic without a doubt! But note that they are not the best bet for rainy days. Creamy and glossy lipsticks tend to bleed easily in humid weather. Therefore, sticking to soft matte lipsticks is the wisest thing to do. Also, opt for shades of brown and pinks instead of bright, bold colours.

Use a nourishing moisturizer.

Use a nourishing moisturizer during monsoon to make your skin healthy and moist. A cloudy or rainy day doesn’t mean your skin is safe from the harmful ultra-violet rays; use effective sunscreen regularly to avoid any skin issues. Exfoliation will remove dead skin and unclog your pores. Toning is essential to remove the leftover make-up and dirt.

Dear ladies, keep your make-up game strong by following the tips above, even in the rain.
