Today has been a rainy day and before we know it the rain will fully be here and that necessitates a change in how you wear your makeup to prevent it from running off of your face. The worst thing that could happen is to see your mascara running down your cheeks or your foundation dripping onto your blouse. Don’t compromise on looking your best simply because of a few weather snags.
Below are some tips to help you keep your make-up on your face in the rain.
Use a primer: A primer not only gives your foundation a smooth finish, it also helps it stay put.
Cream products: In case you get rained on, cream blush and eyeshadow will adhere to your face better than powders. For eyeshadow, use an eyeshadow primer too to help it last longer. A concealer followed by a loose setting powder can be used as an alternative to the eyeshadow primer.
Waterproof mascara: This is a no-brainer. Waterproof mascara won’t run down your cheeks should raindrops happen to fall on you.
Setting spray: A setting spray used before you apply your make-up and when you finish helps your make-up stay fresh-looking for longer.
Don’t Touch: What really ruins your makeup isn’t water alone—it’s the combination of water and pressure from wiping your face. If your face gets wet, whether it’s rain, tears, or sweat, do not wipe, period. Blot off excess water carefully and your makeup (yes, even mascara) should stay perfectly intact!
Be sure to carry your powder, lipstick and eyeliner to touch up throughout the day.
