Just because it’s been raining doesn’t mean you should look as drab and gray as the weather. Brighten up your face with these simple but effective makeup tips that can brave humidity and downpour.
1. Don’t forget your base.
Yes, there’s a lot of moisture in the air, but that doesn’t mean that you should skip moisturizing your face. The right base can hydrate your skin and increase the staying power of your foundation, giving you that even tone.
2. Go for waterproof products.
The last thing you want is to have a runny mascara. Opt for long-wearing products that won’t budge even if your face gets wet.

3. Choose cream-based makeup instead of powder.
Powder tends to crease and streak when it gets damp. Avoid this makeup faux pas by opting for cream-based products that will easily set on your skin.

4. Pick your tint.
We’re all about getting things to stay put even during a downpour, and lip tints are great with doing just that. A little goes a long way if you want to achieve those naturally pink and plump puckers.

5. Get it to set.
Keep everything in place by spritzing a bit of finishing spray. Yes, it does make a difference—you can actually see the makeup setting better on your skin, plus it stays on longer.
