Sleepless night, hangover or a freshly popped pimple, good makeup can hide all those beauty-spoilers. However, the approaching monsoons makes the make-up slip and slide off sooner than it should, resulting in repeated ‘touch-up’ rounds.

Fret not! We’ve saved you the hassle by finding five long-lasting products to help you through the humidity.

It feels light on the skin and works best for people with oily skin. Give other correctors and concealers a miss, for this stick does it all. It’s available in three natural shades.
