This past summer in New York has been-well-not really too much of a summer at all. We all experienced a little more rain and humidity than we care for. So during the months you thought you could actually be carefree, you spent trying to dodge the curbside puddles and battling the frizz, poof and melting makeup. So bring on the storms New York, we’ve got a couple beauty tips that’ll have you singing in the rain.
1.Cloudy skies are a clear indicator that rain is in the vicinity, so it’s important that you always have a spare bonnet or umbrella in your purse. Keeping the rain out of your hair and face is essential.
2. Make sure that you set your eyebrows with a little bit of gel or wax and opt for cream shadow,(it has longer staying power). As for makeup, use a light foundation and always use setting powder to help it stay on. Finish off with some finishing spray or rose water. Remember, you don’t want to look like cake face.
3. Waterproof mascara is a must. We love and use it anytime of the year, but it’s especially useful on rainy days. Be sure to also carry a travel size baby oil and q tips if you happen to have any smears.
4.There’s no use in straightening your hair on a rainy day. We suggest a dime size amount of anti-frizz serum and either leaving your hair down au naturale or gathering it in a top knot for a no fuss look.
5. Work with the hair texture you have. The moisture and wetness can actually be good for curly haired ladies, since curls tend to lack more moisture.
6.Always carry a pack of pocket tissues and oil blotting sheets for after the rain hits. Blot away all your worries.
