Make your foundation work for you, no matter what the weather.

It’s never easy to wear foundation well in the hot and humid Indian climate. But with these easy tips, you can get weather-proof and flawless skin all day long.

Options aplenty

For great finish and coverage, pick a foundation that’s oil-free, water-based and light in texture. “Finish the look with dab of a translucent, matte powder that will help set the foundation and keep it in place all day long,” says New York-based makeup artist Karuna Chani. You can try mousse foundation for the airbrushed look it creates, owing to the air that is injected into the liquid, thereby producing that flawless finish.

First things first

An essential component of any makeup routine, the primer fills in fine lines and creates a smooth canvas for your foundation to stick to, says Chani. Eye primers work in the same way and help you keep your eye makeup intact. Apply this miracle product before foundation and watch your makeup last till the end of the day. A concealer, too, is indispensible as it helps cover up any imperfections such as blemishes, scars, redness, dark circles and the like. The key is to blend it well.

DIY Diva

A tinted moisturiser is a 2-in-1 formula that not only acts as a moisturiser but also provides light coverage. Many brands have now started to include SPF in it, making it a 3-in-1 item. Create your very own customised tinted moisturiser at home by mixing a dollop of your moisturiser with one pump of liquid foundation for a subtle no-makeup look. Apply, set, go!

Refresh your makeup

Blot excess oil in the T-zone (forehead, nose and chin), followed by a quick spritz of facial water spray, advises Chani. Next, dab a little foundation before reapplying lipstick. Complete the touch-up with a smooth sweep of eyeliner.
