7 Essentials To Get Your Make-up Kit Monsoon Ready


Here, at TSL, we’re unapologetic devotees of makeup. But in the occasion of a downpour, we’re often faced with raccoon eyes or a running base. After all, monsoon and makeup- they just don’t go well together. This is why it’s crucial to switch to the right (and light) monsoon makeup- one that doesn’t leave you looking weird post a cloud burst. If you’ve been on the lookout for some monsoon makeup essentials, we’ve got your back.

Here’s a round-up of 7 essentials to get your make-up kit monsoon ready:

  1. Blush

Powder blushers are the real enemies during monsoon, as they run down easily. What you require is a cream blusher that will stay put during the rains. These are water-friendly and super easy to apply. Alternatively, you can save some bucks by mixing your powder blush with a CC cream for a perfect rosy blush that stays on for hours.

  1. Sunscreen

Sure, the sun might be playing peek-a-boo behind the clouds during monsoon, but there’s nothing that the clouds can possibly do about UVA and UVB radiations. Many people commit the hideous crime of skipping their sunscreen during a downpour; make sure you’re not one of them.

Your skin still gets affected by the sun in the same way it gets affected during the summer months. What’s more? Applying sunscreen regularly is also the best way to slow down the ticking clock of aging. So be loyal to your SPF.

  1. Face Wipes

During the rainy season, your skin literally struggles to breathe and use of excessive makeup for longer hours prevents this from happening. So you should follow the motto ‘less is more’ when it comes to makeup during monsoons. Always make it a point to carry your face wipes so that you can cleanse your face and get rid of the excess makeup once in every 2 to 3 hours. This will prevent your facial skin from clogging up.

  1. Eye Pencil

Monsoon is the time to swap your eye liner with an eye pencil. Sure, an eye pencil might not give you the precision of a liner, but the last thing you’d want is the rain water washing away the liner and leaving you looking like a panda.

Alternatively you can also opt for waterproof eyeliner or gel-based liner that will stand the trials of rain.

  1. Compact Powder

Monsoon is the time to completely replace your foundation with a compact, because the former becomes blotchy in no time and you obviously do not want to walk around with that excess oil on your face. So dodge anything that makes your skin greasy and make room for a compact.

  1. Matte Lips

Glossy lips will definitely bleed during this season. Therefore, matte lipstick is the safest bet as it will give you maximum coverage, without getting sticky or smudge during a downpour. Stick to dark or medium colors this season as they stay longer.

  1. Eyebrows

Who doesn’t dream of power brows? However, the monsoons can mean trying times for your eyebrows. Instead of using brow powders that will run down easily, it’s better to go for a brow pencil that will stay put for longer hours.
