Don’t let the rain stop you from conquering the world

While we are getting ready for the pool parties or a weekend at the beach with that perfect “summer body”, we tend to forget that keeping our makeup waterproof is a lot of work, especially under the scorching sun during monsoon.

Follow these tips to look your best, no matter how sweaty things get!

Swap right

Swapping is the solution to all your makeup meltdowns this summer.

•    Swap your foundation with BB/CC cream or tinted moisturizer. Less is more when it comes to makeup during summertime. So lighten up your makeup routine by using BB/CC cream instead of thick foundation or concealer. These are lighter products which will give you full coverage and even last longer in the heat.

•    Swap powder blush with stain/cream blush. To stop your makeup from getting cakey and fade away in just a few hours, use stain blush. This will give you a youthful glow and last for hours – even when it rains.

•    Swap eyeliners and powder eyeshadows with cream eyeshadows and waterproof eyeliners. These are budge-proof and won’t make you look like you have racoon eyes after a day out in the rain or the humid weather.

•    Swap your everyday lipcolours with matte finish lipcolours. These stay put all day and won’t make your lips look flaky.

Layer up

•    Sunscreen + primer + setting spray – This is the ultimate way to waterproof your makeup this season. No matter what, never get out of your house without wearing a sunscreen. Sunscreens should be the base of your entire look and even act as a water-resistant primer. Use a primer, especially the ones with SPF, and finish off with a matte finish setting spray to hold your makeup in place.
