When I decided to start going to the gym again, I got a little bit panicked over what to do about makeup. I know it's not good gym etiquette to go with a full face of makeup, and I definitely didn't want to be one of 'those girls' who everyone laughs at, yet at the same time, I knew I needed to wear something.
I simply don't have the confidence to go bare faced in public.
I asked on Twitter what to wear, and a few people got back to me asking what I decided to go with, as they were having the same worries, so here is what I wear on my face to the gym...
First I start by covering any imperfections with my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, I usually have a couple of spots around my chin and redness around my nose. Then I cover my under eye circles with my Maybelline Anti Age Eraser Eye, which is a new concealer for me, but I really like using it (I'll get a proper review of this up soon).
I don't like the idea of wearing foundation to the gym, as I imagine sweating under full coverage makeup isn't great for your pores, so I use my Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint, which is a lovely slightly tinted moisturiser. This gives me all the coverage I need whilst being really light on the skin.
To set my base I apply a very sparse dusting of Miners Fresh Faced Powder on top, just so I know the minimal makeup I am wearing will stay put while I work out.
Lastly I apply a slick of Blistex Lip Brilliance lip balm to my lips, which has a tinge of pink to it. This adds a slight bit of colour to a completely plain base, and definitely makes the difference for me.
I hope those of you who requested this post have found it useful... if you would like to see a video about this, do let me know... but I think it's pretty simple.
