Waterproof Mascara -Who wants to wear mascara that gives raccoon eyes as soon as you step out of the home? Waterproof mascara works best during the rains and gives your lashes a fuller look in no time! The added volume beautifully enhances eyes too. Just keep in mind that since it is waterproof, you need a makeup remover to clean it up.
Recommendation: Maybelline New York Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara (Waterproof). You can also opt for the Bonjour Paris Volumizing Mascara.
Lipstick– A bright lip colour can create the much needed drama this dull monsoon. Liquid lipsticks are the ideal option. They last for long, lend a good hue and offer a smooth application, making it easier to apply. To get a polished look, choose ones that don’t settle into the fine lines of the lips.
Recommendation: Faces Ultime Pro Lip Crème
Waterproof eyeliner– The eyeliner neatly defines the eyes, augmenting its beauty. Waterproof ones or water resistant ones which are widely available in the market can be chosen. Liners which don’t smudge or crack are the best.
Recommendation: Maybelline New York Hyper Ink Liquid Liner. This liner makes precision lining easy, it gives a glossy finish and dries up very quickly. The intense black colour stays on for a really long. It has flexi- cushion tip applicator, which makes the application part hassle free! Another option is Color Fever Water Proof Liquid Eye Liner.
BB Cream– This is for those who don’t like to apply foundation on a daily basis. BB creams have a light formula with good coverage. It applies on smoothly and firmly stays on the skin even if you sweat a lot. Overall, it gives a natural finish to the skin.
Recommendation: Ponds BB Cream
Waterproof Eyeshadow– It is tough to pull off eyeshadow during monsoons. If it is that necessary to apply eyeshadows, then opt for cream eyeshadows. They stick to the skin properly and are not affected much by water.
Recommendation: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick
Concealer – Concealer is perfect for those who want to cover up their scars, acne and dark eyes. They also help in highlighting your features. A good concealer this season is one that has a thicker consistency, which doesn’t wash off easily in water.
