Splish, splash! It might be raining buckets outside but don't give up just yet. Makeup maven Namrata Soni lets us in on some clever tips, tricks and must-have products to sport your prettiest monsoon beauty look yet. Get ready to take notes as we give you an exclusive glimpse into Namrata’s bag of monsoon magic.
Start by taking a dash of the flirty Colorbar Feel The Rain Matte Lipstick - Hail 07 and smearing it on the top of your hand. Then, dip a slightly damp Beauty Blender Modernize The Way You Make Up Sponge into the formula and tap on your cheeks. This sheer, transfer-proof hack marries your cheeks with a lovable candy tint and just the right hint of flush.
Gloomy days are the perfect time to shine. Take a swipe at Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Balm with your blender, dab the excess onto your hands and pat your cheeks again. “Treat your hand like a palette,” she says, adding that the right spots to hit with the luminizer are your high cheek bones, the bridge of your nose, forehead, chin and Cupid’s bow.
Runny eyeliners are ridiculously annoying and ugly. If you’re looking for a new tried and tested zero-budge beauty buy, get your hands on the Nykaa GLAMOReyes Eye Pencil - Blue Hex 01. Draw a line as close to your upper lash line as possible. Now smudge this line into place with your pencil brush. “Don’t go for a full on harsh sharp liner, just a hue on the lids is the trick to getting this look spot on,” says Namrata.
Delicate lashes are just what the rain gods ordered. Namrata swears by the Maybelline New York Volume Express Hyper Curl Mascara. She gently works her wand through lashes to pump up the intensity. “The key is to stay subtle and keep the look minimal.” This lash beauty stays in place no matter what. Go dance in the rain and see for yourself!
Namrata returns to her first pick: The Colorbar Feel The Rain Matte Lipstick - Hail 07. Apply a dab of this luscious pink to the center of your lips. Then take your ring finger — which exerts the least pressure — and start dabbing to the corners of your mouth. Now, use the Colorbar Fabulips Lip Brushto fill in the corners for a just bitten, smudged effect. Build up the color with a couple more dabs, and you’ve got yourself a striking monsoon beauty look, created by none other than Sonam’s favorite makeup artist!
