Make-up tricks to try out during the monsoon

New Delhi: As much as the cool weather soothes your soul after a rough summer, the monsoon is not everyone's favourite time of the year. Hence, make-up has to be done differently during this season keeping in mind the high level of humidity while you are on the go, says an expert. Elton J. Fernandez, official make-up artist, Maybelline New York, has shared how:  * Use minimal foundation on your skin and make sure the focus of your look is on your eyes and lips. * Use a gel liner as it can be easily blended onto your skin for different looks like a definite wing. * Top it up with some bold waterproof mascara and watch your eyes come alive regardless of how dull the skies are. * Matte lipsticks are great, especially long wearing ones, as they reduce touch-up worries. Go for a matte lipstick that keeps your lips moisturised, as they are made to glide on tenderly but with full impact on your lips. * Experiment with the trend - applying lighter colours on the middle of the mouth and blending it out into a deeper colour for a beautiful dimension. It will be matte, but not flat.
