Rachita: Skin care is difficult during the Monsoon season. Skin becomes dull and life less.
Sonam: Not Really.
Rachita: Skin loses its beauty. Make-up is next to impossible.
Sonam: Apply water proof make up during the Monsoon. Apply waterproof eyeliner or mascara instead of kajal or eyebrow pencil. Use lighter shades eye shadow and blush like pinks. Waterproof foundation or powder is the better replacement for regular foundation or concealer.
