Less Is More:

Avoid Heavy Foundations:
Due to the humidity in the weather, skin is bound to feel sticky and if we add a heavy foundation to the mix, things are bound to go wrong. A heavy layer of foundation can cause the whole look to appear cakey, so it is better to use light or minimal foundation or even a BB cream to start your routine.
Using brow pencil to fill your brows is the only way to go in monsoon season. Eyebrow powder can get clumpy and has a probability washed away if you get wet in the rain or sweat a lot. Eyebrow pencil sticks to the skin and has no danger of smudging.
