- 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.
