It’s a fact universally acknowledged that monsoon is a terrible season for all makeup lovers. Patchy, cakey, often smudged are the most commonly used terms to describe our makeup in the monsoon season if we don’t use the right products. But, not anymore. Besides monsoon-proofing your kits, we suggest turning to matte makeup to ensure your makeup stays put longer, without appearing patchy or smudging. To ensure you don’t make any makeup faux pas this season, we have listed down our favourite matte makeup products you need in your vanity this season to appear fab, always!
- Lakmé Absolute Precision Lip Paint
- Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer
- Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation
- Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Powder Foundation Compact
- Lakmé Insta Eye Liner
Lakmé Absolute Precision Lip Paint
The high levels of humidity in the monsoon can cause your cream-based lipsticks to bleed and smudge. Your safest bet is to stick to a good matte lipstick like the Lakmé Absolute Precision Lip Paint. It comes in a pot with an expert lip brush that offers expert-like precision. This one gives your lips an amazing matte finish without drying them out with a velvety matte texture. It is transfer-proof, lightweight and available in 20 intense shades that go for all your moods. Basically, a perfect match for you this monsoon.
Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer
Primers are non-negotiable, especially during the monsoon. Apart from keeping our makeup from budging, it also fills in the pores and blurs out imperfection to give you a flawless base. Our all-time fave is the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer. This primer is waterproof (phew!), extremely lightweight and hides your blemishes and pores to give you a perfect, matte base for makeup that stays put for a longer time.
Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation
For natural-looking, smooth and even skin, we suggest switching to the Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation this season. With SPF 20 and long-wear formula, this foundation gives you medium to high coverage all day long. We love that it is available in 16 shades that are perfect for all Indian skin tones. So, blend it nicely on your face and neck with a damp makeup sponge for a perfect, matte look.
Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Powder Foundation Compact
Face powders are a boon in the monsoon season. Our go-to is the Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Powder Foundation Compact, which acts as a concealer, foundation and compact and gives you a matte finish all day long during this season. It is available in six shades and is perfect for people with oily skin as it gives an even coverage that conceals fine lines and blends effortlessly into the skin.
Lakmé Insta Eye Liner
To avoid those embarrassing racoon eyes this season, ditch your basic eyeliner and switch to the Lakmé Insta Eye Liner instead. With a water-resistant formula, this liner is lightweight, easy to apply and helps define your eyes perfectly. It comes in four amazing colours like black, golden, blue and green - so pick a fun colour and put your best face forward this season!
