For monsoon, the most significant thing is to opt for matte makeup. Avoiding gloss, sheen or shimmer on the face is recommended. As the makeup settles down, the glow will come on its own. Opt for a matte finish primer that prepares a good base for your foundation and prevents make-up from spoiling.

A matte finish primer and foundation helps maintaining the skin’s complexion and preventing it from oxidizing which is a result of excessive oil secretion on the skin. Use a mattifying powder, preferably a compact to finish the base. This will ensure matte skin for longer! In case your skin produces excess sebum, make sure you carry blotting paper that soaks excess oil without removing the makeup.

The following should be AVOIDED:

  • Cream based makeup products, whether it is foundation, blush or eye shadow as they are likely to make you sweat more
  • Too much shimmer and glitter as this will overdo the shine on your face
  • Sticky /thick lip gloss on top of your lipstick as it can make you uncomfortable

Use of waterproof products for eyes is essential. Choose the eyeliner, eye kohl and mascara carefully, as they are the products which you would want to prevent from dripping off and smudging. One aspect that we often tend to ignore is taking the make-up off.  Always use a makeup remover, especially for waterproof makeup to remove these products.
