NOW COMES THE TURN OF MAKE UP. Patchy make-up, bleeding lipstick and mascara streaking down your face. Oh no! You don’t want to end up with that washed-out look. Even when it is not pouring, the high humidity levels can make your make-up melt. Either way, you need to build your defenses. A bit of caution and some common make-up sense can help you look great even if you are caught in a downpour.
Foundation : The best thing to do this season would be to go for the minimalist look. If you are like me and love make-up, stick with water-resistant foundation. However, use it as sparingly as possible.
If you are indoors and fear humidity rather than a downpour then layer your make-up to make it waterproof. Apply your foundation and then use powder to pack it in. MAC Studio Fix is a good product to use in such conditions. Avoid using thick, creamy concealers. They may bleed and run—stick to matt ones instead. For dry skin the best thing to use is a light-tinted moisturiser with an SPF.
Eyes No kajal, please! Put all your kohl sticks away for the time being as kajal will bleed and create faux dark circles under your eyes. Yikes! To get your eye make-up right this season use a primer or gel-based productGo for gel-based or water-resistant eyeliners. Use them to support the lash line rather than applying them thick.
Transparent mascaras (such as Clear Mascara) are great for daily wear and will shape your lashes beautifully without streaking your face. For more definition though, you could use black waterproof mascara which are readily available. You should avoid using mascara on the lower lashes.
Line your lips with a nude colour pencil and fill in. You may go over it with the tones you are wearing. Fill in using a long-lasting lipstick.. If you find this too dry, top it up with a clear gloss Bright lip colours are in. However, if you are not comfortable wearing them tone them down by adding a bit of foundation.
