Top 5 Gym Friendly Beauty Tips


Leaving the gym after a sweat sess to head straight to drinks with the girls, or even a hot first date, isn’t exactly an ideal situation, right? Thankfully I have a few beauty products that may just help ease your mind so you can exit the gym feeling fresh and confident! Just keep reading on …

  1. Rather than messing around with a cleanser that involves a rinse off which is just annoying in a small space like a gym, pop a cotton wipe or 2 in your makeup pouch to quickly swipe a rinse-free cleanser like Bioderma Micellar Water all over your face. This HG beauty product will completely remove sweat, dirt or left over makeup for a fresh, clean glow with any rinsing whatsoever – simply perfect for reapplying makeup immediately after!
  2. Also in your beauty stash, keep a product similar to Becca Ombre Rouge Eye Palette, for it has the prettiest eyeshadows that you can use for a subtle sweep of colours over the lids, or if you’re up for it, amp it up by applying the darker shades in the outer corner and lash line for all the glam you’ll need! PLUS - if you need a little extra flush, these shades would be gorgeous to multi-task as a powder blush either with a blush brush or simply your fingers!
  3. Let’s face it, no one wants to stand in the busy gym bathroom carefully lining their lips oh-so-carefully, so why not skip the dark lip and use the tinted Lanolips Rose Tinted Lip Balm, for a hint of colour and plenty of gloss, without feeling sticky or clumpy!
  4. Every makeup kit at home or in the gym bag needs a el cheapo eyelash curler for a wide eyed look, and a swipe or two of mascara will complete the look. Currently I’m loving Clinique’s High Impact Mascara.
  5. Lastly but most importantly, keep a jar of Klorane Dry Shampoo on hand for all gym dates, as a quick simple zoush up of the hair will turn up the drama for a fuss free date post gym!

I’d love to know, what products do you always keep in your gym bag? What do you notice other gym goers using? Share with me in the comments!
