Monsoons are a joy when you’re sitting by the window sipping hot tea and eating snacks. But when you have to step out, the combination of sweat and humidity can make you hate the rains for ruining your makeup. And it’s not just women with oily skin, those with dry skin type also find it difficult to keep their makeup intact during this season.

But worry not, we have solutions to all your beauty-related problems and this one’s no different. If you are not quite ready to step out bare-faced, we have a few tips that will make your makeup last longer in the monsoon.

 

Use a primer

Use a primer

The best way to build a smear-proof base is by wearing a primer. It will smoothen your skin texture and create the perfect surface for your foundation to sit on. It fills in pores and fine lines keeps the natural oils and sweat from mixing with the makeup; thus keeping your makeup intact for a long time. For monsoon we recommend the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer as it gives a matte look.

 

Avoid heavy foundation

Avoid heavy foundation

Using a heavy foundation in monsoon is only going to make your skin appear unnatural. Use a light layer of your regular foundation or switch to a CC cream for light coverage and natural finish. The Lakme 9 to 5 Complexion Care Cream protects, conceals and moisturises skin to give you even looking skin.

 

Wear waterproof mascara

This one is a no brainer. Come monsoon, switch all your eye makeup products with waterproof ones to prevent any embarrassing situation. The Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Volumizing Mascara – Black is a waterproof and smudge-resistant formula that fits right into your budget.

 

Dab translucent powder

Dab translucent powder

Compact and other powder formulas are difficult to blend during the monsoon season as they settle into the skin and make your skin look patchy. For touch-ups use translucent or finishing powder that has a really fine texture and gives a matte finish. The Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Finishing Powder - Universal Shade is perfect to keep your makeup intact.

 

Use a setting spray
