In the Philippines, it's never just rainy or plain sunny. So to help you stay fresh and look polished in confused AF weather, we rounded up these beauty tips.
1. Keep your hair away from your face...
This is especially useful for days when you get sweaty: You don't want your hair product to rub off on your forehead and possibly cause skin breakouts! A safe bet would a ponytail, but if you want a 'do that stays put, try a crown braid.
2. Or embrace a messy 'do!
If you don't have time to fix your tresses, go ahead and work with the frizz by going for these messy hairdos.
3. Wear color!
Gloomy weather doesn't mean your face should look somber. Swipe a bright lippie for insta-good vibes.

4. H20-proof it!
You absolutely need a waterproof mascara to survive humid weather.

5. Take a break from powders.
Go for a long-wearing base with a velvet finish; powders tend to cake up when exposed to sweat and humidity.

6. Don't forget the sunscreen.
The sun may not be seen, but that doesn't give you the license to skip SPF because UV rays can still pass through the clouds.

7. Pay attention to your feet, too.
You're more likely encounter smelly feet during the rainy season because of wet shoes. To avoid this, always dry your tootsies before wearing footwear, and make sure to place your drenched pairs in ventilated areas to prevent odor-causing bacteria from forming. Sprinkling baking soda inside your shoes will also keep the stink under control.
