Runny foundation, smudged mascara and bleeding lipstick are some makeup horrors that monsoon brings with it. If the rains leave you looking like a mess, you need to make a change! While you can’t do much about getting drenched in the rains, you can definitely make sure your makeup withstands the rains and stands its ground.

Here are some amazing lightweight makeup products that are a complete must-have this season...

Primer
 

Primer

If you don’t already have a primer, it is time you buy one. Primer helps give you an even base and extends the life of your makeup. For the monsoon, you should choose a mattifying formula such as the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer. This primer has a lightweight, waterproof formula that is perfect for the rainy season. It helps create the perfect base, hide imperfections and give a flawless matte makeup finish.   

BB cream
 

BB cream

Monsoon is when you need to ditch your foundations as they weigh your skin down, clogg your pores and make you sweat. Instead opt for tinted moisturisers or BB creams for a sheer finish and even-toned skin. You can try the Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Cream that offers coverage combined with a ton of skin benefits.

Blush

The rainy season is when you strictly want to avoid powder formulas as they tend to slide off as soon as your face comes in contact with rain water. Instead, stick to cream formulas as they’re more lightweight and blend right into your skin. The Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color is a smart thing to invest in this monsoon. It has a super lightweight formula that does not feel heavy on the cheeks and gives your face a healthy flush of colour.

Lipstick
 

Lipstick

Matte lipsticks are the best option for monsoon because glossy formulas tend to get sticky and smudge easily. The Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color has a feather-light formula that settles to a suede-like matte finish on drying.  

Mascara
 

Mascara

Mascara is one product that most women can’t live without as it opens up the eyes and makes one look awake. But for the rainy season, opt for a waterproof formula as you don’t want mascara running down your face the the minute it starts to rain. You can use the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara that has a waterproof and smudge-proof formula and is perfect for the season.
