So Margina, is it okay to wear makeup to the gym or when playing a sport?
It's important to protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun when playing a sport. Shiseido Urban Environment Tinted UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 43 offers a tinted sunscreen that is water resistant, hydrating and oil-controlling along with offering broad-spectrum sun protection. The brand also offers a tinted sunscreen stick and Tinted Powder Sunscreen. You can finish off your light look with mascara from Blinc that is smudge and sweat resistant and Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain in Forever Pink. The stain is chock full of olive and avocado butter and adjusts to your body chemistry to a give a universally flattering flush.
Now after engaging in heavy physical activity, if we have plans after, what are some products you recommend we use to make us look presentable?
You want to make sure you to give the skin a good cleanse and moisturize before applying a bit of color. Sephora's Triple Action Cleansing Water removes dirt, makeup and leaves no residue. It's great for all skin types and won't dry out the skin. Michael Todd True Organics Liposome Antioxidant Moisturizer soothes and hydrates skin before applying makeup.
As for makeup, Eve Pear HD Dual Foundation offers two colors so you customize your application and get from sheer to medium coverage. Freedom Glow Beauty Balm from Revolution Organics offers three different flattering shades that work for the lips and cheeks. Top your lashes with LashControl Mascara that conditions your lashes and offer clump free definition.
And If we want to use makeup to represent our favorite sports while cheering them on, what are some unique makeup looks we can try?
Try the colorful loose pigments from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. Create a base for your makeup with the brand's Tinted Moisturizer and Skin Conceal. Finish off with Manic Panic Mascara. The key is to keep the rest of the face neutral so all the focus is on your colorful eyes. NARS Multiple in Palm Beach gives subtle cheek definition and Being True Sheer Lip Shine finishes off the look.
