Readers have emailed me wanting solutions for so many monsoon beauty dilemmas, from hair to skin, so I thought I'd address them all with this article. I've a whole slew of monsoon-specific beauty products that I use to survive July & August, so I thought I'd share my best ones to you.
Here are my top 13 beauty must-haves for monsoon. I honestly doubt I could survive without these products:
1. Waterproof Sunscreen
I use a sunscreen with SPF 20+ at least 20 mins. before getting out of the house even if it is a cloudy day as harmful UV rays can penetrate the clouds.
2. Waterproof Foundation
A foundation helps me to cover blemishes & provide an even base for makeup. However, don't use a heavy foundation in the monsoon.
3. Loose Powder
I use loose powder to dust my face lightly as pressed powders tend to get messy during the monsoons.
4. Waterproof Blush
A waterproof blush keeps my cheeks fresh & beautiful, adding charm & beauty.
5. Waterproof Lipstick
When I wear a waterproof lipstick, I don't need to worry that it'll come off. Lighter shades are the trend of this season.
6. Waterproof Eyeliner
Wearing a waterproof eyeliner helps to add definition to my eyes without having to worry about smudges.
7. Waterproof Mascara
Using a waterproof mascara helps to highlight my eyes & can make my eyelashes appear longer & thicker.
8. Waterproof Eye shadow
Waterproof eye shadows come in a variety of colors & can help in creating the look I want.
9. Waterproof Makeup Remover
Waterproof cosmetics are designed to stay on & require a special makeup remover to remove it.
I use the tissues to wipe moisture from my face.
11. Wide Toothed Comb
I use the wide toothed comb to brush my wet hair without damaging it.
12. Pocket Mirror
This is an absolute must for all seasons & not just monsoon.
13. Travel Hair Dryer
Keeping a travel hair dryer with you is a good idea especially in monsoon.
