Makeup for the Gym?

Is there even such a thing? How many of you still wear makeup at the gym just in case a hot guy is lifting across from you? I'm honestly curious. Anyway, I'm about to head off to the gym and was wondering if anybody else just can't seem to go naked for the sake of sweating. I can't do it guys!

So anyway, here's my super short list of must-have products for the gym (or any active lifestyle event, I suppose):

-Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer
-Benefit's They're Real mascara
-Burt's Bees pomegranate lip balm

Laugh at me if you will, but I wouldn't go to the gym at all if it weren't for these products. I'm still a little insecure about my small blemishes and acne scars. And who could forgo mascara lest you meet someone absolutely luscious sweating next to you?

Let me know your thoughts on this somewhat taboo makeup topic!


  1. I never, ever leave the house without mascara on, even for the gym. Loved your post!

  2. haha this is such a great post! I normally go with nothing on because I go at collage and it is always super super quiet but when I go in the holidays to the local one I normally wear mascara! as you say.. you never know when a fit guy might come in ;) and sometimes I see people and think 'thank god I dont look as dead as I would without my mascara!' :P

    1. And here I thought I was the only one! Tired eyes and flaky lips are not a good look on anyone... even at the gym.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment.
