Cleansing the face by ice-cubes will make sure that your skin sweat less and your makeup will stay longer. You just have to rub it for 5-10 minutes, and your sweat rate will go lower. The makeup will stay for a longer period.
Avoid using foundation in monsoons and switch to BB creams. You can also replace foundation with face powder. You also have to avoid concealers as it makes skin patchy when water comes in contact with skin.
Use a waterproof mascara or else don't use it. Always select water-resistant mascaras that stay for a while without getting smudged when wet.
You must use pencil liner then liquid eyeliner. You should invest in waterproof cosmetics when the monsoon is going on. To get a perfect look, apply a thin line of eyeliner. It will look decent and also save you from getting messy.
Always use cream based blush in a monsoon and use less blush as possible. When applying blush on your cheeks blend it in the outward direction. You can use pastel colors to keep it subtle and beautiful.
To look natural, apply lip balms instead of lip colors. Waterproof matte lipstick will also work in monsoons. Try to avoid lip gloss as it gets sticky and smudge when it will come in contact with rain. You can use dark color lipsticks as it will make you look a shade lighter than your actual complexion.
If you love to get soaked in the rain, then you must avoid eye-shadows. If it is necessary for you to carry eye-shadow then you can use powdered eye shadows and yes, use subtle colors like beige, brown, pink and so on.
