which is though relieving creates lot of skin problems. There
are high chances of your makeup getting absolutely ruined
and washed out. With monsoon showers imperilling a wash down,
it's about time you gear up to face the menacing downpour
and still look your best. Here are a few makeup tips.
It is better not to use foundation during monsoon unless you
want to get caught in a messy position. Instead use face powder.
Powder: Use powder only sparingly just so much that
is necessary to remove the grease off your face and nose.
Mascara: While using mascaras and eyeliners select
water resistant types, do not use kajal during monsoon.
Eyeshadow: Since creams can
melt off the face, stick to powder formulas. Think sheer and
pastel. Shades of brown, pink and beige are just right for
easy maintenance in the rains.
Blush: Apply blush lightly
-- it looks prettiest when you can't tell that you're wearing
it. Cream blushers are yum and they are water-friendly too!
If your face gets wet, all you do is dab it with a tissue
and your blush stays put. Blending is the key word. So be
sure to blend the blush outwards so that it does not look
like a blob of colour on the cheek. Shades of peaches and
browns are a must.
Eyebrows: Keep up with your
tweezing/threading, but forget the eyebrow pencil for the
time being. Instead, put a little hair gel onto a brow brush
to keep brows looking shapely.
Lips: Use the long lasting
colour-stay/non-transfer variety of lipsticks. Avoid the creamy,
glossy ones and opt for powder matte tones or crème matte
Hair: During the monsoon your
hair is in a mess. But don't worry follow these tips to get
a tangle free, clean and healthy hair.
