Do you wear makeup to the gym?
BeautyTidbits says : No, I don’t wear any makeup to the gym except for a tinted lip balm. However, when I am testing out waterproof makeup products for the blog, my Zumba class is the perfect playground for that! So far, the products that have impressed me the most are Skinn cosmetics Smudge Sticks, Makeup For Ever Aqua Eyes and Smashbox Limitless 15 Hour Wear cream eyeshadows. These can really take the heat of a vigorous workout and stay put! Just for fun, I even asked my lovely Zumba instructor Holly about her gym makeup picks. Her favorite is MAC all the way – be it eyeliner or mascara.
Btw, did you know a recent poll shows 7 out of 10 women apply makeup before before hitting the gym. The poll revealed mascara as the most popular gym makeup candidate. Foundation came in second, with 34 per cent of women wanting a flawless face while sweating it out, and lip gloss made the top three with 21 per cent.
Personally, I feel this is an individual choice. Motivation to work up a sweat can be a fleeting thing anyways so what’s the harm in a little waterproof mascara or covering up a pimple here and there if that makes us feel better before doing any form of exercise in public. I say whatever works to help you get into the groove, go for it!
How about you? What’s your take on wearing makeup at the gym?
On a side note, have you taken Zumba classes? If not, give it a try ladies…it is soooo much fun! Before I started going out for Zumba last year, I had never been into any kind of exercise…ever. But with Zumba, it doesn’t even feel like I am ‘exercising’ so it has become more of a “me” time rather than a gotta-do-it workout (all thanks to Holly!!). In fact, I hate it when I have to miss a class during that time of the month. Oh yeah, call me a Zumba addict and I won’t mind!!image credit :weheartit.com
