Make your Makeup Last Long with a Primer
Regarding makeup during the monsoon, a good primer, Ecostay Insta Smooth Mattifying Perfecting Primer, is the one to count on. It acts as a barrier between your skin and makeup, preventing excess humidity, sweat, and oil from ruining your look. Go for a mattifying primer if you have oily skin or a hydrating primer if you have dry skin. A face primer will keep your makeup in place and create a smooth canvas for easy makeup application.
Keep the Base Breathable
Ditch the heavy foundations during the monsoon and choose a lightweight and breathable option. Tinted moisturizers, Nutraglow Tinted Moisturiser - Fresh Ivory, BB creams, Xpress Glow Daily Beauty 10-In-1 Cream SPF 25 - Bright Angel, or even compacts, Ecostay Ideal Finish Pressed Powder - Royal Pearl, are excellent choices to give your skin an even tone and texture without feeling heavy. These products let your skin breathe and minimize sweating and excess oil on the face, providing a natural, dewy finish to shine throughout the season.
Waterproof and Smudge-Proof Eye Makeup
The absolute savior for monsoon showers is smudge-proof and waterproof eye makeup. You probably don’t want your best eye makeup to wash away with the rain leaving black or colorful remains on your face. All you need are waterproof mascara, Proedit HD Mascara, eyeliner, Colorkick Eye Liner Azure Mermaid CL02, and kajal, Ecostay Longlasting Kajal - Black, to ensure that your eye makeup stays intact, even if you get caught in a sudden downpour. And why only during monsoon season? These will always prevent smudging or panda eyes caused by sweating or humidity.
Embrace Vibrant and Fun Colours
Brighten up your monsoon look by embracing vibrant and fun colors in your makeup. Experiment with colorful eyeshadows, Ecostay Velvet Eye Shadow - Moon Night, playful lip color lipstick, Ecostay Butter Matte Lip Color – Mystic Wine, and blushes, Proedit Silk Touch Blush Highlighter Duo - Fiery Fusion to add a pop of exciting colors to your face. The season calls for stepping out of your comfort zone and being as experimental and playful with the colors as possible.
Setting Powder to Set Your Makeup for All-Day Wear
For your makeup to stay put throughout the day, set it with a translucent setting powder. A light-setting powder, Lotus Makeup Proedit Silk Touch Perfecting Powder, will help control excess oil and keep your makeup looking fresh. It will give a smooth and neutral tone and finish to your face. All you need is a little caution of not getting carried away with the gorgeous finish it gives and stops applying the product in excess to avoid a cakey finish.
Use a Water-Resistant Makeup Setting Spray
Finish off your makeup with a water-resistant setting spray to lock it and keep it in place all day/night. A setting spray, Finish-Up Dewy Makeup Fixer, and Mist will help your makeup withstand the rain and humidity, giving you a flawless look all day!
Opt for Gel-based Products
What goes best this season are hydrating skin products that are light cream-based or gel-based. They blend effortlessly into the skin, leaving only a natural and radiant flush. These products work best in humid conditions and last long.
Keep Your Makeup Bag Monsoon-Friendly
The last helpful tip is to carry only essentials in your tote for monsoon season. Avoid carrying products that may melt or get damaged in the rain. Go for travel-sized products to save space for other products and keep your bag light.
