Monsoon Makeup Tips To Prevent Your Makeup From Getting Washed Away

Monsoon Makeup Tips To Prevent Your Makeup From Getting Washed Away

Heat, humidity, and rain – these are the three enemies of a flawless makeup. And you are going to face all of them this monsoon season! Makeup meltdown is a big no-no - the last thing you need is your mascara running down your face before your big date.  Here are our top monsoon makeup tips to rain-proof your makeup and look your best in the coming months.

Tip 1 – Nail a rainy-day makeup by keeping it simple

Piling your face with a thick layer of foundation and concealer is going to leave you looking like a mess at the end of the day. Start by prepping your face with a mattifying primer to prevent your face from getting greasy and shiny. For a smear-proof face makeup, use a long-wearing foundation and concealer that won’t budge all day. One of our favourite monsoon makeup tips is to ditch the foundation and go straight in with concealer to keep your makeup light and breezy. But remember, using the wrong shade of concealer is only going to attract unnecessary attention to the places you want to conceal. To make sure that the concealer is not too light or too dark for your complexion, use the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool to find your exact shade match in face makeup products.

Tip 2 – Apply Setting powder to keep your makeup in place

This monsoon makeup must-have not only controls shine but also blurs your pores to give you a smooth and flawless complexion. Less is more when it comes to powders, so work in light layers and gradually build the coverage as you go. Here is a monsoon makeup hack that works great, especially if you have oily skin – Mix your liquid foundation with some loose powder on the back of your hand and then apply it with a dense foundation brush to create a budge-proof base makeup that will look fresh all day.

Tip 4 – Make waterproof products your new BFF

It is a no-brainer that you need to stock up your makeup pouch with waterproof products if you want your eye makeup to survive the day. Monsoon season is not the time for dramatic eye makeup looks with crazy graphic eyeliner styles. Create a neutral eye makeup with soft eyeshadow shades like pinks and browns. A monsoon makeup tip for when you are in a rush is to apply the same blush you just used on your cheeks to your eyelids as well Use a waterproof kajal and eyeliner on your waterline and lash line to define the shape of your eyes and add some extra oomph. To give your lashes some drama, apply a generous amount of waterproof mascara to get bold lashes. If your waterproof mascara is not giving you the length or volume you desire, here is a simple monsoon beauty tip for you – first coat your lashes with your favourite volumizing or lengthening mascara and then top it off with a layer of the waterproof mascara! This waterproof makeup tip will protect your lashes from the rains while also giving them the look you want.

Tip 6 – Keep your lips matte

Line your lips with a lip liner before going in with your lipstick to make sure that your lip makeup does not bleed outside your natural lip line. Use the Maybelline Virtual Try On tool to find a lip liner shade that perfectly matches your lipstick colour so you are not left with an unsightly outline!
