Gym bag beauty #3: Base products

20140411-213129.jpg

I’ve been hammering the gym as usual lately, but also trying out some new beauty products which leads me to this brief rundown of my current go-to base products.

I hate putting on a heavy foundation for a workout, and I certainly don’t want an expensive one so this new Bourjois CC Cream has been a great product for me. Simply apply with your fingertips (applying it with a brush makes it a little cakey in my experience) and blend in seconds. The product seems to work perfectly with my skin tone, and provides moisture which is a godsend with my dry skin. It offers a slightly dewy to satin finish which I like for the gym as it wears off naturally without flaking.

I then set this with the Rimmel Clear Complexion powder which is almost invisible but seals in my base and offers a matte finish to my oily T-zone. This would need to be reapplied throughout the day, but for a quick hour at the gym it’s absolutely fine and won’t break the bank.

What are your gym beauty favourites?
