Makeup tips that will have you looking flawless this monsoon!

We all have experienced that situation where we step out of our houses with a full beat face only to face the wrath of the monsoons and we end up looking like a hot mess. With these tips you will never have to worry about the weather anymore and your makeup will look fresh all day!

1. Primer is key!

Using a primer is essential if you want your base makeup to last and not budge. It creates a perfect smooth base for the other products and also protects your skin as it is non-comedogenic.

  • Our highend pick : Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

2. Skip the cream base products

Cream foundations can end up looking cakey due to the humidity and can slip and slide on your face. Powder foundations work better in this season and it’s always easy to go in and powder your face during the day if necessary.

  • Our highend pick : M.A.C Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

3. Stick to cream blushes

Blushes add a healthy colour and glow to our faces and for this season cream blushes is the best choice! They are not only easy to apply but also super user friendly when it comes to travel. When nothing else works you can always use the age old trick of using lipstick as a blush and that does the trick too!

4. Waterproof Mascara is the way to go

A little bit of mascara can totally change your

look but the panda eyes during monsoons is a

real problem. Opting for waterproof mascara

can help solve this problem and it will have

your lashes looking fluttery and full all day.

  • Our highend pick : Bobbi Brown Eye Opening Mascara

5. For that pop of colour on your lids opt for cream eyeshadows

Cream eyeshadow sticks are all the rage right

now and it’s totally worth the hype! No need

of a million eyeshadow brushes, one swipe is

all you need and you are ready to go.

6. Liquid Lipsticks are a lifesaver!

Our advice is to strictly stick to liquid

lipsticks this season, they are matte, transfer

proof    and long lasting. In case you suffer

from dry chapped lips put on some lip balm

before you use a liquid lip and if nothing else

works a lip tint can help.
