To make sure that your base stays flawless all through the day try using a primer. Though most people avoid using a primer in this season, it’s actually a blessing for this monsoon. It acts as a shield, keeping dust and water away and also helps reduce perspiration through the pores. Keeping your makeup in place longer. M.A.C Prep+Prime Skin Base Visage is an indispensable add to your makeup collection.
Light and Easy:
As clichéd as it sounds, less is more when it comes to monsoon season. So start your day with a weightless foundation, which won’t leave you with a cakey base despite the humidity. Go for Bobbi Brown’s Nude Finish Tinted Moisturiser. It’s lightweight yet covers unevenness leaving the skin softer, smoother and naturally radiant.
Waterproof mascara is a ‘must have’ for all seasons but if you tend to stay away from it because of its dry consistency, there are a few gems out there that will stay on your lashes through this weather (while lengthening, thickening and curling obviously). Our pick is the Dior’s Diorshow Waterproof Mascara, which gives bold, glossy and dramatic lashes no matter the weather!
For that Pout:
