The humidity in the atmosphere can turn out to be really troublesome for makeup lovers Because that can wash out the toughest of liquid bases. Liquid bases usually start falling apart when a lot of sweat or moisture gets on the face and therefore, to avoid this happening, you must make sure to use really dry and powdery formulas.  Use more of compact powder and layer it after your primer and foundation to lock in the matte texture.

The moisture caused due to sweating may spoil your eye makeup and therefore it must not be done.  The waterproof liner stays for a very long time, retaining its perfect shape, along with that it is easier in terms of applying as they glide.

Try Cream Blush

There is a mixed opinion in the market as to what kind of blushes work better? Cream or powder? The thing is that powder blushes give the face a dry and unflattering look. Whereas the cream blush, applied after moisturising the face and touching it up with compact powder, stays on for a decent amount of time, plus, it also provides a very natural glow to your face.

Avoid Matte Lips

go for glossy lips

You might have seen how matte, even waterproof lipsticks start chipping off when they come in contact with water. Thus, you should avoid wearing matte lipsticks, but you can definitely go for applying creamy lip shades, crayons or a natural lip balm. These don’t generally get off with water and are perfectly suitable for monsoons.

Primer And Makeup Fixer

It is very crucial to go for a good quality primer and makeup fixer. Primer helps in binding the makeup base and after you are done with your entire look, then you just spray the fixer over your face and let it dry for 5 minutes. This will, to a great extent protect the makeup from being ruined by the rain.
