4 Tips to Sweat Proof Your Makeup
Tip 1. Choose Long-Lasting Formulas
Set yourself up for success and choose long lasting formulas. They tend to be thicker, preventing them from fading over time or sinking into any fine lines or wrinkles. The best long lasting formulas tout upwards of 15 hours of wear. Check out these industry leading and long-lasting primer, concealer, foundation, and mascaras.
Smashbox's photo finish foundation primer is silicone-based, light-weight, and silky. This primer will help your foundation last throughout the day and throughout your workout. It doesn't take much product, and one bottle will last you months. $42; Sephora.com
Not only does Lancome's concealer do wonders for your under eye circles, but its waterproof formula beats the heat and humidity. It melts very nicely into the skin during application, making blending a breeze, and you won't look like a racoon after your workout. $31; Sephora.com
Estee Lauder promises 15 hour long lasting application with their double wear stay in place makeup and I'd have to agree with that assessment. An added benefit of this line is the sheer amount of shades available to compliment all skin tones. If you prefer outdoor workouts like running you'll likely have a nice tan. Match your foundation shade to the tan on your body, and vice versa for an all over even skin tone. $38; Sephora.com
Tip 2. Set Your Foundation & Concealer
Set your foundation with a long lasting setting powder or spray. This is perhaps the most important step to include as it gets rid of shine and extends the wear of your foundation. My personal favorite is Urban Decay's All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray.
Tip 3. Choose Creams Over Powders
Cream blushes, eyes shadows, and highlighters last much longer than powders as they're a thicker consistency and don't fade as easily and stay put.
Tip 4. Use Lip Stain Instead of Lipstick
Lip stains last longer than lipsticks and also don't leave behind lip prints as an added benefit. You won't even need to touch up your lip stain post workout.
