Ever wonder how to sweat-proof your makeup? It's easier than you think - as long as you have the right products and equipment. Sweating is inevitable at the gym or any workout type. Luckily though, you can still wear a full face of makeup without worrying. Try out these sweat-proof makeup tips!
Prepare Your Face
Just like any good makeup look, you need to prepare your face to make your makeup sweat-proof. Start by washing it with your favorite face wash for a dry and clean surface. Then, opt for a BB cream with SPF that will stick to your skin and act as your foundation. Not only will you be protected from the sun if you're working out outside, but this long-lasting formula will guarantee waterproof AND sweat-proof coverage. Next, you can use a contour palette to lightly contour your cheeks, jawline, and side of forehead for a natural bronze look.
Opt For Waterproof Concealer
You may be showing skin while working out, but some of us may be self conscious of blemishes, bruises, scars, or spider veins. Besides covering up your face, you may want to look into a waterproof body concealer. A brand like Dermablend is perfect for covering large body areas that won’t get washed away during hot exercises. Plus, it even contains sunscreen to save you a step!
Switch to Super Powder
A great way to sweat-proof makeup is to cover it up with the big guns. We’re talking about pressed powder that is super matte and super lasting. This type of product acts like blotting papers on your face, sponging up sweat and water for a long-lasting matte finish. Most powders also contain salicylic acid, which prevent blemishes, too! Check the powders you are using and see if you need an upgrade.
Use Waterproof Eye Makeup
Some of us can’t get away from eye makeup during the our workout sessions, and that’s okay! You can play with water-friendly and long-lasting eyeshadows or eyeliners, which skip harsh blending and filling in the crease. For your eyelashes, we recommend using a clear mascara or Vaseline in place of mascara. This will give your lashes volume and length without the raccoon effect as your sweat!
Seal Brows Against Sweat
Let’s not forget about your eyebrows! Full, defined brows are definitely in style, and you can still rock them at the gym or in your fitness act. You can easily sweat-proof your eyebrows beforehand by sealing them first with a clear wax pencil. Then, lightly fill in your brows to give them shape and definition using a waterproof brow pencil. Finally use clear gel to hold it in place, and you’re set!
