The Best Makeup For A Workout
*** This blog post is brought to you by LucyTriesIt.com, a makeup blog.
Hey girl, let me be very honest with you. I don’t usually wear a ton of makeup for a workout. However, on those days when I want to look a little more fabulous at the gym, I take a few extra steps to just enhance my features and make me look more naturally radiant.
And guess what? I’m here to share my gym makeup tips with you! So without further ado, here is my super simple makeup for a workout!
Quick And Simple Makeup For A Workout
Step 1 – Base
So for your base, I don’t recommend wearing any foundation. Instead, what you’ll use is a highlighting moisturizer.
A highlighting moisturizer is perfect because it will give your skin a natural looking glow without clogging up your pores while you workout. I really love the Tarte Brighter Days Highlighting Moisturizer because it’s oil-free and sweat resistant, which is perfect for the gym!
Step 2 – Brows
If you have nice full brows, you could skip this step. However, if your brows are a little sparse like mine, you could go ahead and fill them in lightly and naturally with a waterproof brow pencil. Brows really frame your face and you’d be surprised at how much of a difference they can make.
I suggest using a shade slightly lighter than your brow color because you don’t want them to look too dark and overpowering (since you’re not wearing a ton of makeup as it is).
Step 3 – Under Eye Area
If your under eye area is looking a little tired, you can add a tiny bit of highlighting concealer. This will brighten up your eyes without adding too much heavy coverage. You can also line your waterline with a nude eye pencil to add to the effect.
Step 4 – Eyelashes
A little mascara will make your eyelashes stand out just enough. Just make sure your mascara is waterproof so it doesn’t smear during your workout. Don’t let them get too clumpy either – we’re going for a natural look here.
If you want to define your eyes a little more and make your lashes appear a bit thicker without making it too obvious, you can try this little trick.
Step 5 – Lips
To make you lips stand out but still look natural, I recommend a rosy, tinted lip balm. Tinted lip balm is perfect because it will keep your lips hydrated while you work out plus add just a hint of color, which is all you need for the gym.
Best Workout Makeup For The Gym
Alright there you have it – a super simple and natural no-makeup look that’s perfect for your workouts! As you can see, wearing makeup to the gym doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s not about wearing tons of full coverage makeup, it’s about brightening up your features to make you look naturally radiant as you hit those fitness goals.
So go ahead and get that workout in, girl! And remember, you are amazing 😉
