Beige, light pink and very light shades of orange tend to look good and are quite easy maintenance as well.

Tips to keep your make up waterproof :

1 ) Give your face a gentle yet thorough wash. That done, gently slide an ice cube all over your face for a few minutes. This will inhibit perspiration and help your monsoon makeup stay instead of smudge.
2 ) If you’ve got dry or combination skin use a good toner post the icy application. If your skin is oily you’ll do better to use an astringent post the ice application on your face.
3 ) It is advised to maintain your eyebrows in perfect shape during the rains. This is because you may not be able to whip out your eyebrow pencil and use it during a heavy spell of rain.
4 ) Wash your hair twice a week with a mild yet cleansing shampoo.
5 ) This monsoon, avoid any make-up product that has shimmer in it.
