Tips To Make Your Makeup Last Longer During Monsoon Season

Monsoon calls for a fragrant breeze dampened meadows, and much more. And, all this makes way for a great time to break the monotony and infuse splendour in your makeup too! But, the rainy season also brings patchy foundation, dripping mascara, smudging lip colour, and unmanageable hair.

Ishika Taneja, a Guinness World record holder for fastest airbrush makeup and Executive Director of Alps Group, is here to share some amazing monsoon makeup and beauty tips which will help in staying without a touch up for a longer time. Add a new zing to your look this monsoon season.


  1. Waterproof base

The rainy season causes humidity in the atmosphere, which leads to sweating and dripping of makeup. Therefore, it is suggested to apply a waterproof base followed by the pat on loose powder to set the makeup perfectly on your skin. This will surely avoid the embarrassing patches on the skin.


  1. Ace that blush

Instead, going for your usual blusher, Ishika recommends using a powder-based blusher to infuse a natural flush on your cheeks in this season of romance. Try some subtle shades of pinks and peaches, depending on which one suits you the best.


  1. Eye Basics

Bright colours certainly look more beautiful during monsoons. So, when it comes to eye makeup, you can probably add some spark by using dazzling colours and let your eyes do all the talking. You can also play with different shades such as bright pink, blue and orange.


  1. Permanent makeup effect

If re-touching the makeup of your eyes seems like a fussy affair to you, go for permanent kajal (kohl) and eyeliner application, and say goodbye to your woes. This will last for at least 10 to 15 hours and will keep your eye makeup worries at bay.


  1. Neon bright

Choosing the regular shades of colour is an old school thing now, try new trend of this season like neon shades. These colours are making their mark in the fashion circuit now, they will be a hit during monsoon season too. Different bright shades of red, orange and pink are some of the most popular shades these days. You can use these bright colours to make your monsoon merrier.


  1. Hair woes

It is advisable not to leave your hair loose or open as far as possible. Your hair can get oily by mingling up with the rainwater and sweat, which will make them look tacky. It is best to tie them into a high pony or a mid-rise bun, to beat the heat and humidity. One may also go for a short haircut in order to make a better style statement this season.
