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 stand humidity and downpour.

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 the makeup you’ll put over it while giving you that even tone.

Go water-proof

The last thing you want is to have is melted kilay or runny mascara. Opt for long-wearing products that won’t budge even when your face gets wet but are also easily removed once you get home. You don’t want sticky products that can pull out your tiny hairs.

Choose cream-based makeup instead of powder

Powder tends to crease and streak when it gets damp. Avoid the makeup faux pas by opting for cream-based products that can easily set on your skin.

Pick your tint

We’re all about getting things to stay put even during downpour, and lip tints are great with doing just that. A little goes a long way in getting those naturally pink and plump puckers.

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.
