11. Ignoring Your Skin Type "I love scooping up makeup just as much as the next gal. But going about it with reckless abandon can mean getting stuck with products that don't work for your skin. For example, "if someone is oily, I am going to use a different set of primer, base foundation, and concealer," says makeup artist Marissa Hohner"

1. Be All About That Primer "If you don't use a makeup primer, a rainy day is the perfect time to start. Simply dab a small amount all over your face, and watch in awe as it smooths your skin. It'll ensure your makeup stays put throughout the day, Chicago-based makeup artist Marissa Hohner tells me. A totally worthwhile step, if you ask me." 

2. Embrace The Dewy Look "Embrace the dewy look by applying a tinted moisturizer. It'll give you coverage without melting or getting all smeary, Hohner tells me."

7. Skip The Powder ""Cream blush gives a more dewy effect when applied, which will pair perfectly with a rainy/humid day," Hohner says."

8. Go Natural On Your Eyes "...rainy days aren't exactly the best time for a complicated eye — unless you want shadow and mascara running down your cheeks. So go ahead and skip the extras, Hohner tells me, and stick to a simple swipe of waterproof mascara."
