The monsoon is here and while you trade your stilettos and sneakers for crocs/gumboots; your fancy leather bags for PVC bags; don’t forget to switch to waterproof makeup that lasts long come rain or sunshine. Don’t let anything rain on your parade. Wodrob lists down the makeup products you need to buy now to keep going through the rains!
- BB Cream
Swap your liquid foundations for a BB cream which offers a lighter formula that fills up your pores and gives a complete coverage. They also provide SPF coverage so all your needs are met by this one product. It works as a light primer and foundation.
Wodrob recommends: Ponds BB cream, L’Oreal Paris True Match BB cream, Colorbar Perfect Match BB cream, The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream, The Faceshop Waterproof BB cream.
- Waterproof Eyeliner & Mascara
Accentuating your eyes is important because it makes you look beautiful. But wearing waterproof eye makeup is even more important. You do not want to end up looking like Pennywise- the clown from IT movie. Wear only waterproof and smudge-proof eyeliner and mascara, especially in the monsoons.

- Cheek Tint
If you love adding colour to your cheeks, opt for a cheek tint instead of a blush as it will end up looking smudgy in the rain. Cheek tint provides a lovely glow to your skin and lasts for long.
