Written by Tashika TyagiJun 29, 2021

While the cool showers are a much-needed relief from the scorching summer heat, the gloominess it brings with it dampens our spirits a little. Well, that’s something we can easily fix with a little bit of blush, a stroke of eyeliner and a sweep of lipstick, for makeup makes everything a little better! So, to help you beat the dreary monsoon blues, we have handpicked a few celebrity makeup styles that you can try out this season.

Keep it minimally beautiful like Aditi Rao Hydari

If your makeup philosophy is ‘less is more’, then you’d love this subtle, playful look like Aditi. With fuller eyebrows, peachy cheekbones and earthy eyeshadow, the light pink lipstick stands as a focus in the whole look, making it perfect for all the ladies who love no makeup and light makeup looks. The best bit? The look would go perfectly with both ethnic and casual western wear.

What better way to beat the monsoon gloominess than by being your own sunshine? Keeping up with the bright-hued eyeshadows trend, this look by Gigi is all about adding a dash of colour to the otherwise neutral makeup look. Right from the nude lipstick to the matte base and va-va-voom lashes, the look is bound to grab attention.

You can never go wrong when you choose to try a classic makeup look or, as Sonam calls it, the old school glam! With a nude base and lip colour, the entire focus of this look is the eye. Right from well-defined eyebrows to silver smokey and kohl-rimmed eyes —this look is a total winner.

We are in love with bright eyeshadow, but can you really blame us? The dewy base and blush-toned lipstick give a perfect monsoon vibe to the look, and the blue graphic liner takes the look to a whole new level. Team it with silver nail paint, and you’re bound to rock Huma’s look!

If you haven’t already adored Lily’s wardrobe and style in Emily in Paris, then her Instagram will do that for you! We are especially loving her colourful look that is bound to drive those monsoon blues away. Put on a fun tangerine lip shade paired with dusky blue eyeshadow on a dewy base to make your Lily-inspired monsoon look absolutely perfect.
