Here Are Pro Tips To Help You Slay The Beauty Game Despite The Erratic Weather

With the weather becoming more erratic than ever, surviving a day with hair and makeup in tip-top shape is a challenge. But true beauty girls simply won't take any excuses for running around with fuzzy hair and smudged eyeliner and mascara. To avoid beauty mishaps like this, we gathered some heat and rainproof beauty tips and tricks from Make Up For Ever's pro makeup artist and trainer Maws Diaz. Check them out here:

 

Keep your makeup light.

"For days like this, we recommend you to opt for a simple and a more natural look. Rather than doing a complicated hair or dramatic smoky eye that might be hard to clean up when you get sweaty, choose something light and easy. Steer clear of heavy foundations and moisturizers—instead get some color from lightweight illuminating and highlighting beauty products."

Use cream blush only.

Stock up on good cream blushes when the humid/rainy season comes in. “Creams are more stable and they don’t move as long as you will set it with powder.” They also have a longer staying power and can be blended easily. So, pick the right shade, wear it and watch as it sticks with you like a best friend.

Opt for waterproof mascara.

"Keep your lashes locked down with a waterproof mascara! After all, we do not want to end with mascara tracks running down our faces, right? Be sure to check that label in the box if it says ‘waterproof’ before stepping out into the rain."

Try the new water-resistant foundations.

During rainy season, it’s good that you make sure that your foundation is waterproof. “Use two shades: One shade lighter than your complexion and another that is two shades darker than your complexion. Apply the light shade on the highest points of the face and darker shade to sculpt the face. Blend together. After applying the foundation seal with mist.”

Invest in a good primer.

Makeup primers can be a lifesaver and can really make sure that your make stays in place no matter the weather condition—these come in spray, foam or cream. It will help your foundation from melting off. If you’ve got to keep your makeup on the entire day, you can also try a makeup finishing spray.
