The rainy season is upon us once again and that means we have to step up our beauty game if we want to look fab and fierce despite the downpour. While we love that it’s not sweltering hot during a rainy day, the humidity level rises and that makes it even trickier for us to keep our makeup looking great. If you’re gearing up for the rainy days like we are, check out these beauty must haves for the rainy season.
You know how hot and humid it gets just right before the rain falls? Well, that heat is exactly what you don’t want to deal with. That heat melts makeup, leaving you looking like a hot mess. To avoid this, it’s important to wear a light base during rainy days. Skip the primer if your skin allows it and go for something light with a little less coverage like a BB or CC cream or perhaps even just tinted moisturizer.
Cream based products
Another way to keep your makeup looking fresh and fab for the rainy season is to ditch powder-anything and go for cream instead. This goes for eye shadow, blush, contour, and anything else that you could switch from powder to cream. Cream products look so much more natural and you won’t be looking spotty after running through the rain with them too.
We’ve all seen it before: a pretty lady cries in the rain and she gets raccoon eyes that are inexplicably chic and somewhat sexy. Sad to say, that look isn’t what you get in real life when you battle the rain with regular mascara and eyeliner on. To avoid looking like a crazy woman running on the street in the rain, be sure to wear waterproof mascara and eye liner.
Must have mist
What can you do when you don’t have any makeup to touch up your look and the look you already have on has started to cake and look spotty and patchy from the pitter-patter of raindrops on your face? Mist your face with setting or moisturizing spray to let the makeup melt in your skin and blend again together. This is a great quick fix for when you’re in an emergency with no extra makeup on hand.
These are the non-negotiable must-haves for the rainy seasons that every girl should have in her makeup collection. What are you makeup and beauty must haves for the rainy seasons? Share it in the comments below so we can try it out too!
