3 Top Gym-Friendly Make-Up Products {PLUS Video Tutorial}

September 22, 2014

The first thing we learn when we start using make-up, is to AVOID wearing it when we exercise, or when we go to sleep. When we perspire, or when we sleep, make-up tends to block the pores, causing blemishes and breakouts. However, when you skin looks less than perfect, or if there's a really hot guy at the gym, you sometimes have to consider breaking the rule and apply some make-up - just a little bit.

Your usual make-up will melt away and run or become blotchy when you sweat, so be sure to use the specialized techniques in the video below.

When you have to apply gym-friendly make-up to go on a walk or for a jog, use as little make-up as possible to cover blemishes. Here are some of the best products and techniques for gym-friendly make-up:

Tinted Moisturiser or BB Cream

Foundation has too many pigments that will cause clogging when you start to perspire. BB cream treats your skin while providing even coverage. At the same time, it offers sun protection, which is particularly handy if you're going to be outdoors.

Waterproof Mascara

Waterproof mascara will stay on, helping you to avoid panda-eyes when you start to perspire. Only apply it to your top lashes to give you a lushes look.

Tints

Feeling pale? Apply some lip and cheek tint under the BB cream for a natural glow.

Gym Make-Up Rules



If you are prone to break-outs, wearing make-up to gym will make you more prone to blemishes. Ideally, only your fresh towel should touch your skin.

However, you're wearing your gym-friendly make-up, so you have to make the best of it. Follow these tips to help avoid it from becoming an issue by cleansing your face immediately after your workout.

Exercise is actually better for your skin than many products, so keep up the good work!

Here is a great video tutorial on how to apply gym-friendly make-up when you have a bad break-out.
