Delhi is reeling under lack of monsoon and the delhites under the hot and humid weather. However, nothing just stops the Dilliwallas from partying and chilling out. Here are some beauty and skincare tips to beat the sultry weather and rock.
NAKED is the way to go for the STICKY day
Skip base entirely and stick to concealer. Covering up shadows, spots, or blemishes with just concealer means you won’t have to worry about blotting away your makeup .Dab on a cream concealer the denser formula it will stay put longer than a liquid.
Go TINTED and SHINE strategically.
If you are Not comfortable going entirely nude, You can swap foundation for tinted moisturizers that even out the skin tone, add radiance, and don’t feel heavy in the heat.Tinted moisturizers and BB/CC Creams are great foundation alternatives that require less time steering clear of heavy moisturizers and foundation when humidity is high. For a sheer glow, look for an illuminating formula to keep minimal summer makeup glowing. The key is to shine strategically on the tops of the cheekbones and brow bones and down the bridge of the nose. “That takes a little practice—don’t go all the way to the tip of the nose, or it will look oily.
TIME for CREAM and GEL based products
Opt for cream shadows and blushes instead of powder. Cream has longer staying power and can be blended more easily. When powder gets wet, it can tend to streak. Most makeup pencils are made of wax, which melt in the heat. Opt for gel or liquid Waterproof liner. If you are still loyal to your regular liner sweep a black eye shadow on top of the liner .This is will make your liner stay longer and won’t smudge.
MAKE YOUR MASCARA LAST
Water-resistant are the easiest way to avoid dreaded raccoon eyes. But if you find long-wearing formulas irritating, a simple trick is first use your regular mascara and than coat waterproof on top this way it will easier to remove your mascara without pulling your lashes out.
KISS HEAVY LIPSTICK GOOD-BYE
Bright stains and tinted balms offer a healthy hint of color for summer.
A lip stain has staying power and doesn’t add greasiness it stains the skin and will show through whatever you put on top.You can add balm to moisturise. Avoid lipsticks and lip gloss you don’t need more shine specially during the day at night u can put matte lipstick.But if you desire that “I just ate a popsicle” look, tap on a bright, deeply pigmented lipstick with your finger, blot, then repeat until you reach your desired intensit
