During monsoons, a matte-finish primer and foundation helps your make up last longer, despite the humidity and also prevents it from oxidising, which is a result of excessive oil secretion on the skin.
Do not use cream-based eye shadows and blushes, as they tend to melt easily. Instead, emphasise your eyes with powder eye shadows. Also, avoid smokey eyes; go for pastel shades. For lashes, use a waterproof mascara. If you wear false lashes, invest in waterproof glue. You can glam up the dull and damp monsoon atmosphere with some fun and fabulous waterproof coloured eye liners.
Steer clear from the dark lips trend; bright lips are quite the hype this season, and they're easy to retouch and maintain throughout the day. Also, they give you a fresh look. Skip shimmer and glitter make up, as these overdo the shine on your face and look tacky.
Keep you brushes and make up clean and store them in a dry place, like in a roll up pouch or box.
Avoid sharing lipsticks and brushes! Always carry some oil-blotting sheets in your purse that can soak excess oil and sweat without damaging your make up.
Don't forget to remove make up before sleeping as it will clog your pores and lead to breakouts and blackheads.
