Bauty Tips for Rainy Days
Rain might be very useful for nature but cause real nightmares to our looks. If you want to get rid of these negative effects rain may cause on your make-up and hair – we have the solution. No more black tears, no more run make-up nor squashed and frizzy hair. Take note of these simple beauty tips for rainy days:
Forget about straight hair
If you are addicted to your hair straightener, you better take a break on these rainy days. That does not mean you cannot use it (actually, you might be able to tame this rebellious hair, better), but it will not last for long if you got wet. If your hair is slightly wavy you might want to highlight your curls with specific products for curly hair or nutritive texturizers as could be Potion 9 by Sebastian.
Talking about humidity control, nothing better than applying anti-frizz products: serum, argan oil,…
If your curls are rebellious, check out our anti frizz tips for curly hair and control your curls even with a more than relative humidity.
Updo: The best option
You might also create an updo: pigtail, bun, more or less tightened or polished, with hair lotion, foam, or hairspray,… as you prefer. It’s all about controlling your hair to the max in humid conditions.
Fix your make-up
Make-up primers unify color tone, cover spots and blotches, make pores disappear, minimize appearance of expression lines, and prepare skin for make-up, fixing the make-up to last longer on your skin. Try Refining Make Up Primer by Shiseido. It will suit you well.
Choose a foundation cream or a compact foundation.
Creamy or compact texture last longer on your skin, and it is more difficult for rain to remove them. Opt for the same format when choosing blush and brush.
Finish with powder to mattify.
To compensate humidity and mattify posible glow you may apply powders. This way you will retain make-up longer.
Long Term Eye Shadow
It is not very advisable to abuse of eye shadow on rainy days. But if you decide to take the risk, choose an eye shadow stick or cream. They hold better and get altered less.
Use waterproof mascara for eyelashes (like mascara Singulier by YSL or Diorshow Black Out by Dior) or transparent mascara. You may also use fixing gel like Double Fix by Clarins to seal your mascara. You will avoid crying black tears on rainy days. We recommend the same for the use of eyeliner. All waterproof.
Long Lasting Colour
If you do not want to constantly touch up, opt for a long-lasting lipstick. Avoid gloss and use matte colours. These stay on for longer and will provide a dry look in the rain.
Remember: On rainy days, less often means more. Opt for light hair styles and make-up. You will avoid many hassles.
With these tips and all the products you find on Perfume’s Club you might want to be singing in the rain without fear of appearing to have drowned in water, but beautiful as it should be – come rain, come thunder.
