Makeup Maverick Arti Nayar shares Fool proof tips on how to weather through the monsoon beauty woes. Keep make-up meltdowns at bay, especially when the heat and humidity conspire. Monsoon season requires special makeup otherwise; the humidity can quickly ruin your look. It can smudge lip colour, ruin mascara, and leave your skin looking patchy. To prevent this, here are some ultimate melt-proof makeup tips so that your masterpiece makeup lasts all day long, even during the rains…

Cream-Based Products – In case you are using cream-based products, it is important to remember that you have to use minimum products on rainy days. Due to the intense humidity, also make sure if you are using cream products, you need to blend it well and set it with a powder product so that it doesn’t move. Moreover, this will help you to attain a matte, velvety finish to the skin, providing an ‘airbrush’ effect’.

Use Setting Powder – Dedicating a few moments to dusting on setting powder can make all the difference in the longevity of your makeup look. Make sure to set your makeup well with a good setting powder. It will allow the makeup to stay for longer. Use a big brush to evenly distribute a little amount of powder over your face and neck to seal the makeup.

Embrace bold, happy colour lipsticks – That a woman loves her lipsticks is no secret. It wouldn’t be a surprise if you own several lipsticks in seemingly similar shades. But there is just something about bold lip colours that women absolutely love, especially during the monsoons. A pop lip is a great way to beat the gloomy skies, and serves as a fail-safe go-to for this season.
