Surviving the monsoons: Beauty essentials

This week Bombay finally welcomed the monsoons. And while the thought of the sweet smell of wet mud wafting through your window as you stare out with a cup of elaichi tea in your hand seems amazing; the monsoons can be quite a task to deal with. There is frizzy hair and murky puddles to handle too!
In this post, I'll be talking about the beauty essentials that I find necessary to use especially during this season.

Let's take a look now, shall we?


These are a few products that I use especially in this weather *of course, I use during other seasons and so can you!* They help with my skin, hair and face during this erratic weather.


1 - Maybelline ColourSensational in 'Luminous Beige'
2 - ColorBar Waterproof Eyeliner in 'Black'
3 - Matrix Biolage Smoothening Serum
4 - Nivea Express Hydration
5 - Nike Body Mist in 'Up or Down' 
6 - The Body Shop Waterproof Mascara
7 - Palmers Lip Butter
8 - Sparkley hair tie
9 - Tic tac clips

Hair can get incredible frizzy during this season so it is a great idea to use a hydrating shampoo *Herbal Essence's Hello Hydration does wonders for me* and a serum (#3) In terms of makeup, you don't want to end up looking like a wet mess so tone it down this season. I like using my favorite nude lipstick (#1) or a simple clear lip balm (#7) and I stick to waterproof cosmetics (#6 and #2) as much as possible. It can get quite sticky with this weather so make sure you scrub-a-dub your body properly and moisturize (#4) Perspiration can also prove to be a problem so make sure you use a perfume or deodorant that smells pleasant and stays for long hours (#5) And with surprise showers raining down on you, keep your wet hair off your face by trying a stylish updo or a basic bun with a few tiny little necessities (#8 and #9)

So I do hope you liked the new post - I've got a next part of this series coming soon too! If you would like to know any details or a review of any of the products above, do tell me - I'd be happy to hear your feedback!

Happy Weekend lovelies!
