Getting married in the Season of monsoon checks out all the ticks in the list of romance. While the bride gushes basking in the glory of her makeup artist, it’s the bridesmaid who faces a lot of challenges. As they say, with great power comes great responsibility. The bridesmaid has to run around for errands and has to look gorgeous always. Now we know it can be tricky to get your makeup right for a monsoon wedding. So read these makeup tips for a monsoon wedding to ensure that you look gorgeous and fresh – without your makeup running or smudging!

  • Oil Free Primers

Priming the face is the key to a perfect makeup. As our skin produces a lot of oil during monsoons, oil free primers will ensure that your makeup stays in place, doesn’t run down and looks fresh.

  • Use oil absorbing powder to set your base

It’s of utmost importance to set your base with oil absorbing powder if you don’t want to see the makeup melting off your face.  The powder will give a matt non-greasy finish and will make your makeup stay on for long.

  • Avoid glittery heavy eye makeup

One basic rule for monsoon makeup is to keep it less. Extremely creamy or glittery eyeshadows can end up looking clumpy.  Prefer matte powdery eyeshadows.

  • Let your waterproof eyes do the talking

The perfect eye makeup can make your look.  Because it is the monsoon, it is important to use the right products so that the makeup doesn’t run down. Always prefer waterproof eyeliners and mascaras and set the eyeliner with same colour powder eyeshadow as it will help to keep the makeup in place.

  • Matte lips to your rescue

In Monsoon season always prefer matte lip shades in medium tones. Avoid creamy glossy lipstick as it gives a sticky look. You can choose the colour as per your dress.
