Monsoon calls for fragrant breeze, dampened meadows – and all this, makes way for a great time to break the monotony and infuse splendor in your makeup too!. But, rainy season also brings patchy foundation, dripping mascara, smudging lip color, unmanageable hair. Prevent this, with these ultimate Melt-proof Makeup and Beauty tips by Renowned Beauty Expert and Founder-Director of Alps Beauty Clinic, Bharti Taneja.
*The rainy season also causes humidity in the atmosphere, causing sweat and dripping of makeup. Therefore it is suggested to apply waterproof base followed by patting on loose powder to set the makeup perfectly on the skin. You can also alternatively, use a two-way-cake as a quick substitute for waterproof makeup during monsoons.
*It is also recommended to use a powder-based blusher to infuse a natural flush on your cheeks in this season of romance. You can try subtle shades of pinks and peaches – depending upon which suits you the best. Also, blending nicely is the key while using blush-ons, for a softer and natural look.
*Bright certainly looks more beautiful during monsoons – so when it comes to eye makeup – you can probably add some spark by using dazzling colors and let your eyes do all the talking. Using shades such as bright pinks and oranges is preferable; remember that they are waterproof. Besides, using waterproof eye makeup basics (Liner, Kohl and Mascara) is also recommended in rainy weather to save your makeup from draining away.
*Apart from this, if re-touching the makeup of your eyes seems a fussy-affair to you; you can go for permanent kajal (kohl) and eyeliner application to say good bye to your woes. This will last for at least 10 – 15 years and will keep your eye makeup worries at bay.
*As, neon shades are making their mark in the fashion circuit, they will be hit during monsoons too. Reds, oranges and pinks are some of the most popular shades these days. You can use these bright colors to make your monsoon merrier.
*It is advisable not leave your hair loose/open as far as possible as they can get oily by mingling up with the rain-water along with the sweat – making you feel tacky. It is best to tie them into a mid-rise bun or a high pony to beat the heat of humidity. One may also go for short haircut in order to make a better style statement this season. Using hair gels is not recommended because they may cause dandruff and hair-fall during damp weather. Also, one should indulge in regular hair washes to do away with hair-problems.
