Wet, Wild, & Wonderful
A little rain never stopped us 😉
The rainy season is a beautiful time of year in the Philippines. The lush greenery and the refreshing breeze are a welcome respite from the hot and humid weather. However, the rain can also be a challenge for makeup lovers. If you're not careful, your look can run, smudge, and fade in the wet atmosphere.
That's why it's important to have the right essentials for this season. 🌧 Here are a few things you'll need:
Primer or Setting Spray
Primers are a no-brainer to make sure that your masterpiece stays on your face for as long as possible. Think of it like a glue that keeps all the product stuck to your face, making it more resistant against elements that might ruin your look throughout the day. A setting spray or powder, on the other hand, locks everything to place to basically seal the deal. Check out our top picks:
Koh Gen Do Makeup Base
Makeup Color Bases are high-performance primers designed to correct and illuminate before your foundation. The velvety cream glides onto the skin, imparting a thin veil of translucent color that brightens dullness, counteracts discoloration, and blurs pores and lines. The Yellow variant brightens skin while diffusing dark spots and discoloration.
Smashbox Photo Finish Control Mattifying Primer
A mattifying primer infused with a Silkscreen Complex, Witch Hazel, Salicylic Acid, and Zinc. It creates a breathable, silky barrier that perfects the canvas by smoothing skin and strengthening it against damage from environmental aggressors like pollution and blue light.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Loose Setting Powder

A waterproof foundation is essential for keeping your makeup looking fresh all day long, even in the rain. Look for a foundation that is lightweight and non-comedogenic, so it won't clog your pores. Here’s what we recommend:
Smashbox Studio Skin Full Coverage 24 Hour Foundation

Waterproof mascara is an undoubtable must-have for the rainy season. It will help prevent your lashes from getting smudged or clumpy. Look for a mascara that is also volumizing and lengthening, so you can still look your best even in the rain – or maybe even opt for a trusty set of falsies & adhesive.
