Sometimes gym makeup is unavoidable. You might be heading to the gym after a long day of work, squeezing in a workout between plans, or crushing on a fellow gym goer - maybe even your trainer. Or maybe you’re just one those women who wouldn’t be caught dead in public without a full face. Whatever your reason, first things first: wearing makeup to the gym is fine. What’s not fine is how hard it is to find makeup you can sweat in.
While the makeup industry may put more emphasis on golden or super glittery products, the industry’s latest innovations in sweat proof makeup are pretty impressive. From Laura Mercier’s Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Foundation, to E.L.F.’s entire Active collection of makeup specifically designed for working out, to CliniqueFIT’s gym-worthy line up, there are makeup products for the gym that work.
The next time you pack your gym bag, you can stop worrying about whether your mascara will be running hard than you are. Shop the best makeup you can wear at the gym here - and stay fit, fabulous, and fierce.
