Gym bag beauty

photoI’m always changing my make up for the gym. I work out 5-6 times a week and like to try out different things to see what will actually withstand all the jumping about and sweating! Most of the time I go minimal, cause let’s be honest I’ll be washing it off and reapplying in an hour or so anyway. Here’s what I wore today:

Loreal Paris Lumi Magique Primer: I just got this an I’m totally smitten. Smooth, glowing skin will forever be mine!

17 Stay Time Concealer: I can’t see this on the Boots website, so I think it might be discontinued which is a shame. I find its much creamier that the Collection equivalent, and does stay on pretty much all day.

Botanics BB Cream Radiant Youth: Again, another Boots product which appears to be no longer available. This BB cream has a good medium coverage and there was still some to be seen after a pretty sweaty HIIT work out.

ELF Studio Stipple Brush:This combined with the BB cream provides a nicely buffed in, glowing look to my skin. Sometimes I will set this with powder but as I was off to the gym I didn’t bother. These ELF studio brushes are truly amazing. This one costs under £4 and there is also a small version which is great for concealer and cream blusher.

Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara: A new purchase! I have moved on from my Benefit Brow Zings kit to give this one a try. I find the brush a little big for my eyebrows, so I need to tidy it up afterwards with a dry brush but the actual staying power of this product is excellent.

Maybelline The Rocket Volum Express Mascara: This has been a cult favourite for some time now, but I have been religiously loving my Loreal Falsh Lash Telescopic for ages now. Anyway I decided to give it a go and its pretty good. Holds a curls and defines although doesn’t particularly add length which is my preference.

ELF Studio Bluch in Candid Coral: Decided to go for coral as I would end up bright orange after the gym anyway! Have had this for years and I still go back to it at least once a week for a healthy flush of colour.

ELF Mineral Lipstick in Rosy Raisin: Easy to wear and really moisturising. No-brainer really, and because its nude I didn’t need to worry about it bleeding whilst at the gym.

  1. I’m happy to read that I’m not the only one who goes to work out with a full face of make up. Most people think I’m weird, but I think it’s normal 😀 Plus it’s the ultimate product test! If it survives a 1 hour intense work out, it will withstand pretty much anything.
