Waterproof Eyeliner And Mascara


Most of the times when it comes to quick beauty prepping, a generous dash of eyeliner or a mascara can help. But this was an usual practice, one needs to take a detour from everything usual and invest in waterproof eyeliner or a mascara so that even when you are sweating, they sit still on your eyes.  Also, staying away from creamy eyeliners is recommended as they might melt and run down your cheeks. You don’t want that to happen, do you?

We suggest ensure that you cool yourself before you start applying makeup. Take a cold shower, let your skin dry for a while and them get on with our beauty routine. In case you are applying makeup on your skin which is warm and a bit sweaty, the ingredient of the any applied product will be soaked in leading on to an acne breakout later and it also steals the shine from the skin. So in case you are in a rush, splash your face with cold water and then start applying makeup.

Travel With A Facial Mist


It is simple and really easy to stick to. Spraying facial mist from time to time is important. It cools your skin down and helps retain your makeup. Just a pro-tip, you can always mix a few drops of rose water in cold water.

Go Light

 Deep, dark hues might look great in winters but Monsoon do not call for this makeup routine. We suggest preferring nude shades which can help you attain a natural, light look; stick to them. Dark colours can look heavy and when they melt, they can kill the purpose. Also, for all those who love a nice, creamy foundation, once the humidity is an add-on, it might make you look extra-sweaty. Therefore be very careful while picking up your foundations in summers.
