Rain, rain go away, my makeup will wash away! Gone are the days when you have to worry about your flawless foundation, your luscious lipstick, and your majestic mascara lashes going to turn into a mushy gloop! Thanks to the marvel of science and the magic of waterproof makeup that even after literally soaking your face in the water, your makeup is going to stay as spotless as ever.
Present generation of make-up is designed to last longer and does not let the rains come between you and your love for makeup.
While we don’t suggest you to step out with layers of make-up or completely barefaced, there’s always a way out. Keep the fears away and get little wet ‘n wild this monsoon season with our list of waterproof makeup for monsoon season:
1. FOR FACE
Most of us avoid primer during monsoon but that’s completely wrong. Primer makes the makeup look smooth and fresh for hours. Even if the upper layer washes away, a primer will keep your skin looking even.
My recommended brands- Colorbar Perfect Match Primer, Nyx Studio Perfect Photo loving primer
We all know concealer cover the blemishes, eye bags and hide those unsightly zits on your face. Look for waterproof concealer so that it does not wash away with splashes of water. Among the best waterproof makeup brands, the Lancôme Effacerness Waterproof Protective under eye concealer gives the best coverage, though it is a little expensive but used very little and last long.
My recommended brands – MAC Studio Finish Concealer, NYX Conceal, Correct, Contour Palette
For monsoons when the climate is humid go for mousse foundation that stays on your skin despite the rains and sweat. Pick up oil free, water resistant, a long-wear foundation that would give you an even, flawless, and smooth finish.
My recommended brands – Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup, MAC Face and Body Foundation, Fit Me Matte + Poreless from Maybelline
Though they don’t cover the unevenness as foundations but BB creams do a pretty good job. Most BB creams have hydrating, sun and water resistant properties which blend easily on the face. Investing in a good velvety one which doesn’t wash away with the downpour will be the trick.
My recommended brands- Maybelline BB stick, L’Oreal Paris True Match BB cream

You can skip blush for the humid season, but if it enhances your cheek apples why not to go for it. For monsoons, you need something that should stick and show up. Pick cream based blush instead of powder one which is suitable for summers.
My recommended brands- Maybelline Mineral Powder Blush, Benefit Benetint Waterproof Liquid Blusher
2. FOR EYES
Eyes always feel incomplete without kohl-rimmed eyes. There’s no need to go bare-eyed in monsoons and scare everyone! Pick up a waterproof kajal which wouldn’t smudge or budge upon contact with water.
My recommended brands – L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique, Maybelline Colossal Kajal, Lakme Eyeconic Kajal

To avoid panda eyes during the sudden heavy shower, you need to go for water resistant, smudge proof eyeliner which wouldn’t move from its place. Choose the one with which is intense and has gel-like consistency and does not break.
My recommended brands – Colorbar Precision Waterproof Eyeliner, Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, Inglot Duraline
Mascara is one makeup a product that makes your eyes talk! Irrelevant of the season, mascara is must make your eyes appear wider and awake. Most good quality mascaras as waterproof but to pick the best choose the one with more combs.
My recommended brands – Dior shows Waterproof Mascara, Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Waterproof Mascara, Rimmel Extra Super Lash Waterproof Mascara, Faces Waterproof Mascara
If not an intransigent fan, you can avoid eye shadow as the chances of eyeshadow melting off in the rain are very high. But for monsoons, pick a cream based eye shadow which could last for long on the eyelids, at least 7 hours.
My recommended brands – L’Oreal Infallible 24Hr Eyeshadow, MUFE Cream Eyeshadow

3. FOR LIPS
Lip liner is important in monsoons as it avoids the lipstick to spread out. For rainy seasons, you would require the one which could stay at least 5 hours and complements your lipstick.
My recommended brands – Colorbar Lip Pencil, Lakme Absolute Forever Silk Lip Liner
For monsoons, happy and bright colors will not only look cool but it will also brighten up your face. We all need a lipstick that could last till lunch, doesn’t need many touch-ups and keep lips moisturised. You can also rub a little Vaseline on your lips before applying lipstick so that it stays longer and doesn’t feather up.
My recommended brands – NARS matte lip pencil, Revlon Colourstay, Lakme 9 to 5 range
Lip stains are your saviour for rainy seasons. They stay longer and give a glossy look. They don’t smudge as lipsticks even if you eat your heart out. Only thing is you need a mighty makeup remover to take it off the lips.
