- To start with, try to avoid foundation as much as you can, unless you like getting messed up. Instead replace foundation with face powder. This to an extent will help in keeping the look intact even if you get drenched.
- As mentioned you can use powder in place of heavy base. However even while using face powder see to it that you use only as much as you need it. In other words use face powder to get rid of that greasy look and nothing more.
- Blush: Use cream blush instead of powder or any other type of blushes in the monsoon. The mantra is to use as less blush as you possible can. Even if you get wet in rain remember to just dab it with a tissue and not rub it all over your face. When it comes to blushes, blending is the ultimate keyword. While applying blush on your cheeks blend it in the outward direction. Let it look natural and not like a cakey look. Use more pastel colors during monsoon. Keep it subtle and beautiful.
- Eyeshadow: The same goes with the eyeshadows as well. Use subtle colors like beige, brown, pink and so on. And yes when it comes to eye shadows use powdered eye shadows instead of creams. This will keep the eye shadow from melting off on your face.
- Mascara: Mascara should be a strict NO-NO during rainy season, until and unless it is very much necessary. Select water resistant mascaras that will at least stay for a while without getting smudged when wet.
- Eyeliner and kajal: Use pencil liner then liquid eyeliner in the monsoon. This will keep it from running all over your face when you get wet. The perfect look would be to just apply a dash of eyeshadow on your upper eyelid and apply a thin line of kaja. This look will not only look decent but also save you from getting messy.
- Lip Color: Settle down with long lasting range of lipsticks during monsoon. Matte is the best choice. Avoid lip gloss as it will get sticky and smudge easily when you get wet. Use dark color lipsticks as it will make you look a shade lighter than your actual complexion and also stay longer.
- Hair: Do not leave your hair open during monsoons. Tie it up in a neat bun and use hair accessories instead to accentuate your look. You may even want to learn different types of braiding just to look more fashionable and chic.

Since the climatic condition in every season is not identical, you actually need to know about the effect of climate on your makeup during each season. The climatic variation will render some effect over your skin and the makeup you have used. For example during the winter since the weather is too much dry, in order to make a balance with makeup, it becomes important to apply the oily makeup. Similarly, water based makeup will be applicable during summer.
Soft matte lipstick
Monsoon is the season when you should choose the right lipstick. If you are using the glossy and dark tinge of lipstick around the year, it absolutely is not good for rainy season. This is the time when you should go ahead with the lipstick that has the soft matte finish. But, some people cannot just stay without gloss. Thus, you can apply a light pink or brown color gloss over the lipstick. Try it during the monsoon and see how well you look.
Wear washable fabrics
Cotton is something which you have been wearing during the summer. But, this fabric might not get dry very quickly during the raining season. The cloudy days without sunlight are quite common during the monsoons. Thus, it is always better to wear the washable fabrics. The chiffon or georgette fabrics will be a suitable variety during the monsoons. If you are wearing Indian traditional attire, the umbrella cut salwar suits will look really good on you during this season.
Water based moisturizer
During the monsoons, you must use the water based products as this is the season you might get too much humidity as the moisture content in air is too much. It is the time for you to avoid the oil based makeup absolutely. Doing so can make your skin filled with moisture and oil in a repeated way. When you are applying the moisturizer, use the water based moisturizer.
