A rainy day is a kikay girl’s worst nightmare. Imagine a kaleidoscope of colors on your skin as the water ruins your makeup. You’ll end up looking like a tragic clown instead of a fashionable female.
Fortunately, the right makeup will help prevent rainy days from ruining your look. Here are some essentials to keep your makeup intact during rainy days:
1. Invest in waterproof mascara and eyeliner
Rainy days call for waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Though these don’t completely resist moisture, they still hold out better than the usual varieties. After all, dark streaks are the last things you want to see on your cheeks.
Simply apply the mascara on your lids and lashes to make it look longer and fluttery. Use the eyeliner on the upper rim to emphasize your eyelashes further.
2. Light foundation or primer
Heavy foundation and primer could melt in a highly humid setting. Go light on your foundation or primer to avoid such situations. Apply them, but never overdo them. The more foundation you use, the harder it is to fix your makeup if the rain causes damage to your face.
3. Cream blushes and shadows
Powder blush and eye shadow don’t stand a chance when faced with heavy rain. To avoid smudges, replace your powder blush and shadows with cream variants to add color to your face. These can hold out longer during rainy days. You can also retouch or blend them easily in case the rain ruins your makeup.
4. Matte tinted moisturizers
Girls with oily skin normally choose heavy foundations or other anti-oil cosmetics. While these will help keep you from having a shiny face, they will make your face look weird when raindrops attack.
Using matte tinted moisturizers will keep the extra oil and shine off your face. They stay in place longer than the regular ones during rainy days as well. You may even mix matte tinted moisturizers with cream blush for better results.
5. Moisturizing mask
Rainy days may also cause your skin to become dry because of the cool weather. Chances of having a dry, flaky skin will be high during the rainy season.
Keep your skin moist by applying a moisturizing mask before bedtime. This will help keep your face looking healthy and hydrated despite the unpleasant weather.
How you choose your makeup can make or break your rainy day getaway. With these essentials, you can brush off rainmageddon, and face the day with confidence and a smile.
