Monsoon Makeup Tips
Before you start your makeup, make sure that all your tools and brushes are clean and dry. Also, do not ever share your makeup products and accessories during this season with others as it may lead to severe skin infections. Now, here are the wonderful tips for a perfect monsoon look:
Though foundation is not so necessary, primer is a must for monsoon makeup. Opt for a matte-finish primer to protect your makeup from humidity, over secretion of oil and oxidation. If you have to use foundation, pick a matte one so that you can make your makeup last longer instead of messing it up.
Replace your foundation with a good quality face powder. However, make sure that you apply it only for eliminating the greasiness of your t-zone. You should also keep some blotting sheets handy for absorbing sweat in due course.
Cream blushers are the best for the rainy season. They are perfectly resistant to water and hence, stay intact (just blot the water with a makeup tissue) even when you get drenched. Pick brown or peach depending on your mood and keep it light.
Be regular with your eyebrow threading during monsoon. But skip shaping them with eyebrow pencils. Rather, you can brush them by using a small amount of hair gel. If you love to use falsies, ensure that you have waterproof adhesive for this purpose.
Monsoon can completely ruin your eye makeup. So, it is recommended that you stay away from using kohl and choose only water-resistant eye liners. Instead of cream-based eye shadows, select the powder ones for highlighting your eyes. Pastel shades like beige, brown, etc. are best for this time. Your mascara should also be highly resistant to water.
Bright and luscious lips are perfect to complement the sheer eye makeup of monsoon. Go for crème matte shades having long-lasting formula. They are very easy to maintain all through the day.
