Monsoon Makeup Tips

1. Raccoon eyed?

You can’t be cribbing if you haven’t taken precautionary measures. That is to waterproof every formula – from gel pencil, liquid liner, cream shadow to mascara. But on days you’re rained out, out come ’em raccoon eyes. Then there’s no going back, so if you can’t beat it, join it. Wipe out excess with a wet tissue and cleansing milk and work towards a dewy lookin’ smoky eye.

2. Feathered (p)out

Bid adieu to lip gloss this season. The stickier the formula, the more your lips ought to feather. Pucker up with matte lipsticks at night or keep it light with a lip-and-cheek tint. Basically, any light texture that won’t melt down in the rain are the lippies to hoard. In fact, tinted lip balms with great color payoff suffice just as well. Get smackin’ with this rain makeup tips.

3. Hit a wet patch

Makeup in rain can be a daunting task! Switching to lightweight, cream or water-based formulas for your face this time of year are prerequisites that go without saying. As with your primer and finishing spray. However, the onus of your watered down-patchy complexion lies in rigorous wiping. It’s moments like this that your blotting paper comes to rescue. And for a total about-face, keep your beauty blender and travel-sized BB creams handy.

4. Browller coaster

We do realize that waterproof brow products tend to come on too strong. But forgoing that leaves you with bald arches or baggy under brows. A feat you can’t afford since these days brows speak louder than words. Trick is to stay away from powders and stick to gel pots and liners. And your waterproof mascara finishes and sets them in place.

5. The Frizzgate

Frizzy hair is the macaroni to our cheesy-corny rains. It doesn’t spare straight, smooth locks let alone grisly-wislies. So never step out without a frizz-fighter like an anti-frizz serum, or anti-frizz sprays. Banish the brush and let your natural waves take over. No matter what, don’t pull up or braid over your wet locks. When all else fails, go big with the wet look with extra shine and mousse.
