Rainy days not only call for wise choice of outfits; you have to consider what kind of make up to wear as well. Make up melts like ice cream in the rain from the humidity and can get extremely cakey if not done properly. Follow these makeup hacks to stay fab under the gloomy weather.
There’s nothing worse than having the rain wash off the makeup you worked so hard on. Head on to the nearest store and list down the must haves for this season:
First things first, always remember to put on moisturizer before anything else because skin tends to get dry during rainy days.
2. LIGHTWEIGHT PRIMER AND FOUNDATION
Opt for lightweight primer and foundations, avoid putting too much on as it can run down and stain your clothes. It’s best to use water-based products for this as well.
3. SWITCH TO CREAM-BASED
Ditch all your powder-based products and go for creams this season! Cream-based make up last longer in humid weather. It doesn’t make your face look spotty, cakey, and gives it a more natural look.
4. WATERPROOF MASCARA AND EYELINER
Avoid getting raccoon eyes and “black” tears by using waterproof mascara and eyeliner. These don’t melt in the rain and have amazing staying power.
5. MATTE LIPSTICK
The rain tends to make your face appear slightly shiny, so avoid wearing anything glossy. Go for bold colors to avoid looking dull and gloomy in this weather.
