It might sound like a silly questions, but do you wear make-up while running or working out?
I ask this because it’s something that came to mind a few weekends ago when I was getting ready for my 5 km race. Maybe its age, but I’m no longer comfortable stepping out without at a little bit of makeup to cover up, at the least, my dark circles under my eyes. Even if it’s for running or working out. I asked my twin sister what she does, she says that on days when she runs or works out, she doesn’t wear any cause it clogs the pores. Which leads me to my question, do you wear make-up when working out or running?
It made me wonder what other woman do?
So, to be fair, I’m going to go first and tell you a little about my daily skin care/make-up routine that is suitable for work or for working out. First off, on days I workout, I scale back on what I wear, it’s pretty minimalist.
I start with sunscreen. Now, I’m allergic to chemical sunscreens, so I wear the healthier mineral type. I’m using GreenScreen by Kabana. Although it works great, it’s not sweat proof. I then follow-up with a primer, my favorite is Glorious by Younique. I don’t sell Younique stuff, but I am a big fan (it’s a bit pricey). I’ll also wear their mineral touch concealer in scarlet, and their BB flawless BB Cream on top since its like a tinted moisturizer.
On days when I work, I will wear some lipstick, I love Revlon Colour Stay Ultimate in miracle mauve and any L’Oreal waterproof mascara on my eyes. If I’m planning on swimming that day, I avoid any eye make-up, or I’ll end up looking like a raccoon.
Sweat Testing Make-up
I’ve put my make-up to the sweat test to see which will stand up to vigorous exercise since I workout mostly during my lunch hour and don’t have much time to completely redo my make-up. you’ve missed my Sweat Test posts, here are a few you might want to look up:

I’m also planning on putting the following items to the sweat test soon:
