Looking good at the gym is no easy task, especially since dirt and oil can prove to be never ending problems. However, primping before and after that cardio session doesn’t have to be challenge, especially since there are so many easy ways to look your best.
“I don’t exactly recommend using makeup while working out,” explains celebrity makeup artist Tomy Rivero. “If you are wearing makeup and sweating is an issue, try and keep your makeup from moving too much. Always press down with your towel (patting motion) never wipe. As you wipe the sweat, the makeup moves with it.”
To get that barely-there gym look, Rivero explains keeping your look light and minimal. Opting for stains and water based products are always a good place to start.
“Try using a water based foundation. This way you mimic the skin texture as your body temperature raises and the makeup starts moving,” says Rivero. “Also try to use stains and long wearing creams for your workout makeup look. These products stay on all day, and tend to stay in place no matter what.”
For bulletproof makeup, be sure to add some water resistant mascara and liners to your gym bag.
“Good rule of thumb is to use waterproof mascara and eyeliners,” says Rivero. “You never want a stream of black tears running down your face.”
After your workout, it’s important to help your skin bounce back. Using the steam room at your gym can help cleanse your skin for starters.
“If you have a steam room at the gym it is great to get a deep cleanse by allowing your skin to soften with the humidity and heat,” says Rivero.
