The steady rain this season plays havoc with makeup. One wouldn't want to be seen with running mascaras and foundations. But what about unsuitable lipsticks? To have pretty lips, there are some easy rules.
Choose lipsticks with smudge proof and nontransferable colors. Women should stick to long lasting lipsticks during the monsoons. Avoiding glosses and cream based lipsticks is also a necessary caution in the rains.
What the ladies can do, is to apply lip balm before painting those puckering lips. Once a lip balm is applied, a neat lining of the lips with a lip pencil will lock in the color. Color can be filled in after that. Right methods of applying lipsticks can turn the situation favorable for the well turned out woman.
This season, bright lip colors such as red, orange, hot pinks and corals are much in vogue. Makeup artist Niti Luthra was quoted by MSN as saying that Neon shades are perfect for monsoon. "Shades like corals, hot pinks and ruby red work well with every outfit," she said. Luthra added that ladies should avoid gloss, as it makes the look stickier.
