Monsoon Make-Up: Practical Make-Up for the Rainy Season
After a long and torturous hot season, the rain season has returned. But as welcome as the cool weather may be, it isn’t very good for keeping our make-up on fleek since a lot of make-up doesn’t sit well on the skin when wet. So, unless you’re going for a ‘melted make-up’ look, here are six of our favourite make-up techniques to keep your make-up in place even on wet days.
A good primer will hold everything you applied to your face in place. It will keep your make-up intact and ensure it will last the entire day, whether it’s going to rain or shine. If you have oily skin, get a matte primer. For dry skin, we suggest getting a moisturizing one.
- Tinted Moisturizer
When dealing with rain, you have to go as natural as possible to avoid smudges and meltdowns. One of the best products to have is tinted moisturizer. Just a thin coat of tinted moisturizer will last you longer than any foundation, especially if you’re out in the rain.
- Waterproof Mascara
When it comes to rain and mascara, we all know that waterproof is the way to go. After all, you don’t want to have “racoon eyes” after a drizzle, do you? To keep your lashes in place, make sure to check the tube and see that it’s labelled waterproof before leaving home.
- Cream Blush
We all love our powder blush for neutral and windy days, but not when it’s raining. When you think it’s going to rain later in the day, pick something that’s going to show some colour and stick to your skin. That’s what cream blushes do. Pop some on your cheeks before putting on your tinted moisturizer for a more natural look.
- Lip Stain
Lipstick are great, but may not withstand the moisture of the rain. To make sure your lip colour won’t smudge and budge when it rains, wear lip stains instead. This product doesn’t move when applied on the lips and usually lasts much longer than regular lipstick.
- Moisturizing Mask
This last one isn’t technically a make-up, but it helps make-up apply smoothly if you have well-conditioned skin. Since the rain season has the tendency to dry the skin out, replenish the moisture by applying a moisturizing mask the night before. You don’t want your make-up to look patchy and uneven, so make sure to hydrate your skin well.
There you have it! Our top six favourite make up. Now that you know what products to use and the necessary know-how about them, you can step out into the rain fearlessly—and gorgeously!
