Are you looking for monsoon makeup tips before your big event? Are you looking to look fabulous, rain or shine? Here are some waterproof products you can stock up on before heading out.

If you don’t want all your hard work ruined by the rain, you need some monsoon makeup essentials. Here are some tips and tricks to keep your face full during the rainy season.

Remember to read the primer.

A lightweight makeup application is key to lasting makeup even on a rainy day. Applying too much makeup can cause it to melt and dry your skin if there is rain. The primer will ensure that the foundation has a solid base to support it. The Lakme Absoluteblur Primer blurs imperfections and protects your makeup from water damage. The primer helps to blend foundation, contouring, and eye makeup. It is light on the skin and provides flawless results.

Say hello to lip liners.

Just like your face, your lips need a base to ensure your lipstick lasts longer. Your foundation is only a support system for your lipstick. A lip liner is your best friend, for definition. The Lakme Absolute3D Lip Definer waterproof help define your lips. It also helps to keep your lipstick’s color from fading as you eat. It is available in six colors to suit any occasion.

Waterproof mascara and eyeliner for the win

Did you match the eyeliner thickness on both eyes and achieve the perfect wing shape? You can keep it that way even in the rain. It will stay waterproof thanks to the Lakme 9-5 Black Impact Liner. This liner is easy to grip and dries quickly, so even beginners can use it.

You can’t go wrong with mascara when you complete your eye makeup. We also have a monsoon mascara product. The Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara has waterproof properties. You don’t need to worry about smudging your eyeshadows while using them. The innovative curling brush will curl your lashes naturally, even in heavy rains.

Choose a matte lipstick.

Matte lipstick is a must-have monsoon makeup item. Matte lipsticks will last longer than lip glosses, even when humid. There are 35 shades available in the Lakme 9-5 Primer + Matte Lip Colour to suit every outfit and mood. It also acts as a primer and stays on your lips for 12 hours, even in the rain. Are you worried about your lipstick getting smudged by your mask? This matte lipstick will not dry out your lips and keeps your lips vibrant without drying them out.

A waterproof foundation is a thing.

For those with oily skin, a powdered or compact foundation is okay. But what about those with dry and rough skin? Before you get caught in the rain, switch to the Lakme Perfecting Fluid Foundation. It is a rich source of vitamin E that moisturizes your skin and keeps it from drying out in humid conditions. This foundation provides a solid base to prevent your other makeup from slipping.

Compact powders are now possible.

If you only need medium coverage, a good tip for monsoon is to swap out your liquid foundation in favor of a powder. Powder-based foundations also give a matte finish and are great for oily skin because they absorb excess shine and sweat. It can be used as a primer or compact powder and lasts long.

Blush lightweight

lightweight formula is your next best option if you can’t find waterproof products. The Lakme 9-5 Weightless Mousse Lip & Chake Color is, as the name implies, lightweight with a matte finish that blends well on your lips and cheeks. You can use the range in light applications for work, or for fun with your girls on the weekends.

Prep, prep, and prep

Are you a monsoon wedding or attending the most important night of your lives that requires a full-face of makeup in the rainy season. You don’t need to worry about any makeup melting if you prepare well. Hydration is key to keeping your skin soft and ready to apply foundation or contouring. Use ice cubes to gently tighten your pores, reduce sweat, and minimize the appearance of lines.

Don’t skip your CTM routine

Make sure to use your CTM (cleanser-toner-moisturizer) to keep your skin soft between layers of makeup.

  • You can start by washing your face with the Lakme Blush and Glow Lemon Skin Wash. It removes all dirt, oil, and sweat in one step. It is rich in vitamin C and will leave you with clear and glowing skin.
  • To maintain your pH balance and keep your skin hydrated, apply a toner prior to applying your makeup. The Lakme 9-5 Matte Moist Mattifying Skin Toner, which is alcohol-free, contains green tea and witchhazel. It tightens your pores while keeping your skin soft.
  • Gel-based moisturisers are suitable for all skin types. This ensures that your face doesn’t become greasy from the humidity. Lakme Peach Milk Ultra light Gel is rich in vitamin B3 to keep your skin hydrated. It also contains peach milk extract, which keeps your skin ready for makeup. It is non-greasy and locks moisture in your skin for 24 hours.
