EBT’s tips on surviving the rain beautifully

Top rainy day products to keep you looking your best...


By Joely Walker

When the heavens open it’s time to re-work our beauty make-up bags. Smudged mascara, frizzy hair and lacklustre complexions seem to come creeping out every time autumn rears its rainy head.

We have rounded up a few of our favourite products that will keep you looking your best when the weather outside is at its worst.


This weightless spray gives the perfect amount of hold without leaving the hair sticky or heavy. The spray creates a flexible shield over the hair to keep it looking smooth and blow dried rather than bedraggled and windblown.

When most people hear the word rain, they immediately grab for their waterproofs. When EBT hear the word rain, we simultaneously grab our favourite waterproof mascara. From Max Factor’s LBD collection this mascara plumps up lashes to awaken eyes, with no clumping or running and ultimate staying power.


These handbag friendly saviours are just the thing to wipe away a hectic morning trying to avoid the unforgiving downpour. You get 24 mini swabs, simply snap the end to release the gentle eye make-up remover and get precision when you’re removing unwanted smudges.

Dior Diorshow Waterproof Liner £18

This liner has intense staying power to survive the rainy season. The smooth formula is easy to apply and it comes in a range of tempting autumn shades (look out for the limited edition Christmas one, in Gold, too). Great for creating a simple smoky eye that we saw all over over New York, Milan and London fashion week.

Tom Ford Lip and Cheek Stain in Tainted Love £36

When all else fails there is always Tom Ford. If you’re feeling a little dreary and disheartened by the weather this lip and cheek stain can instantly boost your complexion. The dewy texture leaves your cheeks with just the right amount of colour.
