Cold treat

Wake up and feel fresh by rins­ing your face with cold wa­ter in the morn­ing or by rub­bing your face with ice. This tight­ens your pores, helps keep your face oil- free, and pre­vents your skin from sweat­ing through­out the day. It also keeps your makeup on longer. Af­ter dry­ing, I sug­gest us­ing Lush Tea Tree Wa­ter Toner for oily, dull or blem­ish- prone skin. It helps keep an oil- free face with­out dry­ing.

Lock in mois­ture

Mois­tur­iz­ing and putting on sun­block is im­por­tant, even on cloudy and rainy days. If your mois­tur­izer is thick and creamy, I sug­gest us­ing a lighter mois­tur­izer to keep oili­ness at bay. If you find that your mois­tur­izer causes your skin to be­come a bit oily within 30 min­utes of ap­pli­ca­tion, make sure you find another one that gives your skin just enough mois­ture with­out caus­ing it to dry.

Al­most nat­u­ral

It’s bet­ter to ap­ply light makeup dur­ing the rainy days. Use light foun­da­tion as the base and fin­ish with loose pow­der. For longer- last­ing blush and eye shadow through­out a hu­mid day, use cream- based prod­ucts. Un­like pow­dered- based ones, cream- based makeup does not smudge and fade away as easily.

Light lines

Avoid rac­coon eyes by go­ing light with your eye­liner as well as your mas­cara. Make sure you test their wa­ter­proof abil­i­ties be­fore you buy. If you must wear heavy eye­liner, carry around a small bot­tle of face cream and cot­ton buds in your purse for emer­gen­cies. You can put some cream at the tip of a cot­ton bud and use it to wipe away any smudged eye­liner or mas­cara.

Smudge-free

For the per­fect fin­ish, spray Ur­ban De­cay De-Slick Oil-Con­trol Makeup Set­ting Spray on your face. It keeps your skin oil-free and pre­vents your makeup from smudg­ing.
