Rain-Proof Glam: Monsoon Makeup Trends to Make a Statement

The new season is the reason for the latest makeup! The monsoon season brings a fresh breeze, cool rain, and many excuses to go out and make memories. While the sun hides behind the clouds shading the heat and sweating days, the challenge is to keep the makeup intact without washing it away with the pour or smudging with the humidity. It’s no secret that waterproof makeup is the solution, and we are here to share some monsoon makeup trends that keep your makeup longlasting and let you make a bold statement.

Start with the Base

As they say, the foundation of anything should be strong; the base of makeup in the rainy season must withstand humidity and rain. Go for a waterproof foundation, Ecostay All In One Makeup Stick – Ivory, a weightless formula with wide coverage. It is an all-in-one formula that works as a concealer, foundation, and compact with sun protection SPF goodness. This all-in-one foundation lets your skin breathe by minimising the layers of makeup and keeping it light to withstand humid climates during the season. The best way to get flawless skin keeping your makeup smudge-free in the rainy season. 

Ditch the No-Makeup Look

The no-makeup makeup look is one of the trendiest styles this year, but monsoon calls for bright and shimmery colours. Get your hands on transformative makeup and paint your eyes with multicolour eyeshadows, Ecostay Velvet Eye Shadow – Forestry, and Ecostay Velvet Eye Shadow - Orchid Freshness. Once you achieve the right pop for the eyes, glide the waterproof eyeliner, Colorkick Eye Liner Smoky Affair CL04, draw the winged eyeliner, give the right glow to the cheeks with a blush, Ecostay Longlasting Silky-Smooth Blush, and finish off the look with a high defined lipstick, Ecostay Butter Matte Lip Color – Mellow Nude, highlighting the lips in one glide! There you are, wearing the best look for this rainy season!

Keep it Neutral

Thinking of hassle-free makeup that brings along minimum to no touch-ups? Nude colours are the perfect fit for you. While enjoy a cup of hot chocolate on a rainy day, the same colour palette gives you the right colours for the season. A brown lipstick, Proedit Silk Touch Matte Lip Color – Choco Delight, with the added touch of bronze highlighter, Ecostay High on Glow Highlighter, will change the simplistic 90s look with the monsoon makeup trends. Finish the look with waterproof mascara, Maxlash Botanical Mascara – Black that is smudge-free and beautifully defines your eyelashes. Smudge-proof mascaras ensure voluminous and curled lashes to steal the show all day. 

Glow with the Gloss

The secret of Korean glass-like skin lies in their daily skincare routine, which we understand is tiresome to practise daily. You can achieve glass-like skin with makeup, giving your skin the glow it deserves. Applying a gloss on the high points of your face reflects the light to provide you with the stunning glow you have been thinking of. Take a glossy blush in a subtle colour, Proedit Silk Touch Blush Highlighter Duo, to highlight the high points of the face. Remember not to overdo it, and keep it natural. A soft pink blush would bring in the A-game. Apply a nude pink lipstick, Proedit Lip Plumper + Gloss – Clear Coral, and tight line your waterlines, Ecostay Longlasting Kajal – Black, or apply eyeliner in one stroke to have the perfect glow for the trending rainy makeup!

Beauty in Simplicity 

If the monsoon makeup ideas look cumbersome, use simple classic makeup. Flush your cheeks with a pink blush, Ecostay Longlasting Silky-Smooth Blush - English Pink, and tight line your eyes with a waterproof eyeliner pencil, Colorkick Kajal – Black, and finish off with a neutral lipstick, Ecostay Matte Lip Lacquer - Rose Bouquet. There you go ready in the natural makeup look that magnifies your features, keeping the whole look neutral and easy to carry on rainy days. 

What comes in handy with these 5 makeup ideas for rainy days are some quick fixes that you must include in your makeup to keep your makeup protected from downpours.

Matte Pressed Powders

Chances are that the humidity during the monsoon season makes your skin oily and shiny. Finishing off your makeup by applying a matte finishing powder, Lotus Makeup Proedit Silk Touch Perfecting Powder – Porcelain, helps inset your makeup and controlxcess oil. Dust a finishing powder after makeup application to let it absorb the excess oil on your skin for a shine-free and velvety finish and save the makeup from gliding off. 

Setting Spray

A potent setting spray creates a protective layer on your makeup, ensuring it stays in place even in humid and wet conditions. All you need is a few spritzes of waterproof setting spray, Finish-Up Dewy Makeup Fixer, and Mist, to let your make withstand the rain and keep you looking flawless throughout the day!
