Monsoon makeup tips to prevent makeup meltdown

Skim through the 7 monsoon makeup tips and say goodbye to makeup calamity during monsoon. 

Tip 1 – 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 face, lip, and 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 pink and brown. A rainy-day makeup tip for you, 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 foundation for your face makeup. 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. This waterproof makeup tip will protect your lashes from the rains while also giving them the look you want.

Tip 2 – Nail a rainy-day face 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. An effective rainy-day makeup tip is to ditch the foundation and go straight in with concealer to keep your makeup light and breezy. However, if you can’t start your day without wearing foundation, you can use smear-proof face makeup, i.e. long-wearing foundation and concealer that won’t budge all day.
