Heading into the world bare-faced can be a daunting, yet wearing makeup to the gym can lead to all kinds of criticism.
If you’re not confident going out without makeup, don’t let it become an excuse for skipping the gym. I have some tips for creating a subtle makeup look that won’t run and lets your skin breathe.
If you’re comfortable skipping foundation, great! Your skin expels sweat whilst you work out so it’s a good idea to let it breathe. If you want some coverage I love using a BB Cream or a mineral foundation. It provides a lightweight coverage without blocking your pores.
A lightweight concealer is great to spot treat blemishes or cover under eye circles.
I love Maybelline’s hyper-sharp winged liner because is it super long lasting and it doesn’t run.
If you want to wear mascara I would stick to a quality waterproof mascara. Just remember not to rub or wipe your eyes.
I have very sensitive skin and lips, so I use the tinted rosy lips Vaseline. It’s moisturising and gives your lips a touch of colour.
POST WORKOUT ROUTINE
Going to the gym and sweating is a great way to detoxify your skin. Ensure you are cleansing your skin straight after the gym whilst you’re still warm.
Once you cool down your pores will close and trap the makeup inside your skin, causing breakouts. Never retouch your makeup after the gym, take it off completely and reapply if you need to.
