Monsoons provide a soothing effect to your skin after the harsh summer sun. During this season the skin tends to be naturally moisturised and sometimes this could be a bane as it leaves your skin feeling oily.

So here are a few makeup tips to get you through this monsoon season beautifully 🙂

Avoid foundation: Unless you like getting messed up. Instead replace foundation with face powder. This to an extent will help in keeping the look intact even if you get drenched.

Use powder in place of heavy base: However even while using face powder see to it that you use only as much as you need it. In other words use face powder to get rid of that greasy look and nothing more.

Blush: Use cream blushers instead of powder or any other type of blushes in the monsoon. The mantra is to use as less blush as you possibly can. Even if you get wet in rain remember to just dab it with a tissue and not rub it all over your face. Keep it subtle and beautiful.

Eyeshadow: The same goes with the eyeshadows as well. Use subtle colors like beige, brown, pink and so on. And yes when it comes to eye shadows use powdered eye shadows instead of creams. This will keep the eyeshadow from melting off on your face.

Mascara: Mascara should be a strict NO-NO during rainy season, until and unless it is very much necessary. Select water resistant mascaras that will at least stay for a while without getting smudged when wet.

Eyeliner and kajal: Use pencil liner over liquid eye liner in the monsoon. This will keep it from running all over your face when you get wet. 

Lip Color: Settle down with long lasting range of lipsticks during monsoon. Matte is the best choice. Avoid lip gloss as it will get sticky and smudge easily when you get wet. Use dark color lipsticks as it will make you look a shade lighter than your actual complexion and also stay longer.

Hair: Do not leave your hair open during monsoons. Tie it up in a neat bun and use hair accessories to accentuate your look. You may even want to learn different types of braiding just to look more fashionable and chic.

Happy Monsoons!!
