Is it raining at your place? At my place, sometimes I see some grey clouds hovering around, but then they disappear quickly! I thought monsoons were here, but no, it seems we would not have much rains this year 🙁 But for all of you, who are still having generous showers, I am compiling this post for you. In the rains, you would not want to be caught with your mascara running down your cheeks. Do not let the rains come between you and your love for makeup. I think for monsoons, we should go for a complete overhaul in terms of makeup. Long staying, smudgeproof, and budgeproof products should be given space in your stash this season. Here are some monsoon must-haves:
1. Waterproof Kajal: A lot of us feel incomplete without kohl-rimmed eyes. There’s no need to go bare-eyed in monsoons, pick up a water-resistant or waterproof kajal which wouldn’t smudge or budge upon contact with water. Our picks – L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique, Maybelline Colossal Kajal, Lakme Iconic, Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Kajal.
2. Waterproof Eyeliner: You need to pick long-lasting, smudge proof, long-wearing eyeliner which wouldn’t move from its place even when you are caught in a sudden downpour. Our picks – Colorbar Precision Waterproof Eyeliner, Bourjois Contour Clubbing Waterproof Eyeliner, Maybelline Hypersharp Liner, Maybelline gel liner.
3. Waterproof Mascara: Mascara is a must-have makeup item in all seasons – summer, winters, or monsoons. Mascara helps your eyes to appear wide and more awake. Our picks – Maybelline Colossal Volum Express Waterproof Mascara, Rimmel Extra Super Lash Waterproof Mascara, L’Oreal False Architect 4 Dimensions Effect
Waterproof Mascara, Dior Diorshow Waterproof Mascara, Faces Waterproof Mascara.
4. Foundation: Pick a long-staying and long-wear foundation that would give you an even, flawless, and smooth finish. Also ensure that your foundation is water resistant and wouldn’t rinse off with water. Our picks – MAC Face and Body Foundation,, Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup.
5. Lipstick: In monsoons, chuck the neutrals and pick up bright and happy colors that would brighten your face up. Pick up matte lipsticks which last for really long or better pick up lip stains which would just stay on and on. Our picks – Chambor Matte Lipstick, Maybelline Super Stay 14Hr Lipstick.
6. Waterproof Lip Liner: You would need lip liners which would stay for long, at least for 4 to 5 hours. These would be a good complement to your matte lipsticks. Here are our picks – Colorbar Lip Pencil, BH Cosmetics Waterproof Lip Liner, Lakme Absolute Forever Silk Lip Liner.
7. Waterproof Concealer: You wouldn’t want to stand exposed with under eye circles and blemishes showing through after your regular concealer clears away with splashes of water. Look for a full coverage and waterproof concealer to hide all your skin issues. Our picks – It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Waterproof Concealer, Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer, MAC Studio Finish Concealer.
8. Waterproof Blush: Look for blushes that would give you a healthy flush of color and that would blend naturally with your skin tone. Our picks – Maybelline Mineral Powder Blush, Benefit Benetint Waterproof Liquid Blusher.
9. Waterproof Eyeshadow: Again, the key is to pick an eyeshadow which would last for long on the eyelids, for more than 7 hours. Our picks – L’Oreal Infallible 24Hr Eyeshadow, MUFE Cream Eyeshadow.
10. Lip Stain: Lip stains are a must have, irrespective of any season. Lip stains last through the whole day, more than 10 hours, and it would only take a mighty makeup remover to take it off the lips. Our picks – Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain, Covergirl Outlast Lip Stain, Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain.
That’s my monsoon must-have list, what else do you think should be included in monsoon must-have makeup list? Would love to see your inputs, please do comment 🙂
