1. Adopt the principle of ‘less is more’
When you are getting ready to go out in this kind of weather, always bear in mind that ‘less is more’. In other words, put on simpler makeup and hairstyle. Keep a light look, skip dark eye shadows or fierce lipstick colour and just stick to the basics.
By doing this, you are actually minimizing the risk of your makeup from smearing. Plus, if you want to touch up later, it will make your job a lot easier.
2. Primer is a must
It is wise to use a primer before applying makeup to your face as it will smoothen out your complexion and let your makeup to stay intact all day long. Pick a good product that could help you to reduce oiliness. Just apply a small amount on the entire face.

Try long-wearing products with waterproof formula. Consider waterproof mascara and eyeliner as your go-to. A simple swipe of the mascara with a thin liner on the eyelids and you are good to go. Your eyes will stand out naturally. The best part is your makeup won’t smudge off!
4. Cheek and lip tint, please
Let gloomy be associated with the weather but not your face. Apply cheek tint to the apple of your cheeks. Make sure that it blends well for a natural rosy look. To guarantee a long lasting pout shade which will not be washed away, opt for lip tint. You can pick natural pink shades or some soft matte tints instead of bold bright colours. Avoid using cream lipstick or gloss as they do not see eye to eye with humid rainy days.
Not only that, you can also apply tinted moisturizer all over your face in order to create a dewy look. Tinted moisturizer will give you a melt-free and smear-free coverage.

Once you are done with your makeup, finish off with a setting spray. Not only the spray helps your makeup last longer, but it is also moisten your skin. Hence, despite of you having to barge through the rain, your look for the day will still be in place.

Last but not least, it is good to always be prepared.

In any event of mishap, you already have what you need to touch up and reapply your makeup.
