10 Mattifying Products To Monsoon-Proof Your Makeup


Getting caught in the rain with a face full of makeup is no fun! Nobody likes racoon eyes and streaky base, thanks to running mascara and foundation. Add melting lipstick to this, and it’s a complete no-no. Moreover, it gets ten times worse if you have oily skin. The key is to switch your regular skincare and makeup with mattifying and water-resistant formulas. Here are 10 mattifying, monsoon-proof makeup products. 

1. Avène Mattifying Emulsion

This lightweight and quick-absorbing face lotion is specifically crafted to take care of excess sebum and keep the skin matte. It contains salicylic acid that makes it suitable for blemished and acne-prone skin too.

2. Dermalogica Oil-free Matte SPF 30

You just can’t skip SPF, no matter what time of the year it is. This oil-free mattifying sunscreen is great for days when humidity is at its peak.

3. E.l.f Matte Putty Primer

A global cult-favourite, this primer contains kaolin clay, and white charcoal that soaks up all the oil and gives a velvet-matte finish for makeup to stay in place come rain or shine.

4. Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation

The foundation has a loyal fan club for all the right reasons. It is super blendable and doesn’t budge at all. Its oil-free formulation helps control sebum and stays put under the mask as well. 

5. L’oréal Paris Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Foundation

A decent dupe to the one from Estée Lauder, this foundation comes with SPF 25 for added protection. The smudge-proof foundation has an ultra-matte finish.

6. Givenchy Prisme Libre Setting & Finishing Loose Powder

This iconic product just got upgraded and is perfect for mattifying, blurring and illuminating the skin. Keep your makeup in place by dusting some of it over your base, or wear it by itself for a matte finish.

7. Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder

The finely milled powder instantly mattifies the skin like a dream without making it dry or dull. It’s the perfect companion for on-the-go touch-ups.

8. Too Faced Killer Kajal

No more raccoon eyes with this stunning kohl pencil. It offers a matte finish and saturated pigment. It’s waterproof and smudge-resistant.

9. Smashbox Photo Finish Setting Spray

Spritzing a setting spray copiously is the final step to achieving monsoon-proof makeup. This one ensures your look stays put all day long. 

10. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze

Keep your brows in place with this easy-to-use clear wax that has a waterproof formula. You can also swipe it on your hair with a spoolie to tame any flyaways.
