Gym and makeup have always been two worlds apart, so hold on to your hats, because we are going to turn your world upside down! It’s not a joke and it’s not a marketing strategy: somebody finally answered our prayers, and soon you will be able to go train with your makeup on! Because let’s be honest, even if we are all for inner beauty, having to look at ourselves in the gym mirror, maybe early in the morning, doesn’t feel so good… And if you are among those who attend a course or go walk on a treadmill for a half hour after work, you won’t even have to remove your makeup, hurrah! We know what you are thinking: regular makeup is just fine and it survives everything, if you just do it right.
Sure, primers and makeup setting sprays are always helpful, but exerting yourself and sweating with a 2mm barrier on your face will not let your skin breathe the right way, and in the long run, having clogged pores might generally get out of hand. So, forewarned is forearmed, right? There are lots of brands that are at work for us sports lovers, some of which, like Sweat Cosmetics, even test their cosmetics on Olympic athletes – can you think of a better way to test cosmetics like these? — and brands like Yuni, that try to apply the philosophy of their favorite sport (yoga) to every product in the line. Ready to show up at the gym as a beautiful swan, rather than an ugly duckling?
