Monsoon season is definitely a favourite of many to step out and enjoy but monsoon makeup? It can be a difficult thing to perfect. Donning heavy makeup during rains, most definitely will lead to smudging which isn't a pretty sight at all. Trust us, you definitely don't want to be the one it happens to! The muggy monsoon weather is accompanied by ton loads of humidity which causes our skin to produce excess oil, making it a tad more difficult to perfect.
What's essential is to keep your makeup light and balanced to prevent any monsoon makeup drama from happening. Let's take a look at some tips, tricks and highly recommended hacks that you can follow to ensure your makeup stays on point and you have versatile looks to flaunt! Your first step to perfecting monsoon makeup has to be using waterproof makeup products such as the TooFaced Better than sex mascara or Gush Beauty’s transfer-proof liquid lipsticks! Adding grease-free, versatile makeup that can be used on-the-go or for minimum touch-ups is just as important.
Makeup tends to smudge or be wept off way faster during the rainy season than the other seasons! Even if you have an important meeting or a date with a friend, keeping on-the-go makeup in tow is a must because it allows you to do touch-ups whenever required. Gush Beauty’s Stacked in your favour is the way to go! It’s a 3 in 1 face palette with Cream Blush, Bronzer and Highlighter that allows you ease of application and totally saves time.
One of the most popular trends and looks that are best suited for monsoon is the minimalistic makeup look! It’s been a trend this past year and one that definitely continuing into this monsoon season.
How do we achieve that simple glow that seems so natural?
Despite what a lot of us have thought at some point in our lives, it’s not all makeup but our base that is our true saviour. For that, we would recommend you drink a lot of water and follow a healthy skincare routine incorporating Hyaluronic acid as an ingredient. The Gush Beauty Glow Getter Moisturiser has got it all! It’s a vegan moisturiser, illuminator, primer and sun protector all rolled into one! These are all factors that are important to protect your skin during this season and ensure it’s healthy! It not only brightens your skin, but blurs pores and perfects your complexion! With this one in your monsoon makeup stash, your skin will be instantly hydrated, more radiant, and dewy soft.
Feel like you need that little pop in your minimalistic look? Let’s add a touch of eyeliner with the Gush Beauty Eye like Options Eyeliner— a small line with a short wing would give you everything you need to complete the minimalist look! You can also opt for the 2-in-1 pack called the Power Couple Set.
Go for a subtle, peachy look with a little soft blush on the cheeks and lipstick play paints on your pout that would help compliment your natural skin tone during the grey monsoon weather! The Gush Beauty Stacked In Your Favour cream blush has the perfect tones to add a subtle yet fun colour to brighten your face! The lipstick playpaints come in 5 colours, for this subtle look we would recommend ‘Big Picture’ which is a mid tone pink and ‘My Own Muse’ which is a bestseller with a nude cool tone pink. It is a nourishing oil-in-water formula that’s weightless and transfer-proof—all you need for this rainy season! It’s also perfect because if you’re looking for more on-the-go makeup. just use your play paints as blush!
The Pretty Parisian look is another perfect look for the monsoon. It accentuates natural features using a bit of bronzer; and lipstick. You could go for neutral or red lipstick each of which creates its own simple look. We also highly recommend ‘Paint The Town’ , a deep red that will look breathtaking on your pucker!
You could also mix the last two trends and go for a fierce feline look with eyeliner + kohl for unlimited flicks and wings paired with the playpaints. Gush Beauty offers eyeliner and kohl in 1 to help you achieve unlimited waterproof, eye makeup in seconds!

Here are some bonus tips (just for you our dear reader!) to make this monsoon makeup ride easier for you.
- Avoid using foundations, as they are likely to form patches. Instead, go for the one step solution- Gush Beauty Glow Getter Moisturiser.
- Ice your face! This is something that helps reduce the sweating so that your makeup stays on for a longer period of time!
- Use powder makeup like Stacked In Your Favour face palettes! Go for brown, pinks and beige as they are easy to maintain in the rain. The idea is to go in for a natural look, any highly done up face will smudge!
- For lipstick, try the pink shade or soft brown and instead of lipgloss, we would recommend some vaseline or a good lip balm!
