Yes, you CAN wear makeup to the gym!

If you just don’t do bare-faced at the gym (we're with you there, hun), you can still look hot while you lift those weights, shake your booty on a spin bike or do your best Eusain Bolt impression on the tread. Wanna know how? We've let you in on a few of our fail-safe, gym-proof makeup tips that'll get you taking ALL those post-pilates selfies. You're welcome. 

Camouflage gym induced redness with colour corrector

Face resemble a beetroot when you’ve worked up a sweat? You've gotta get in the colour correcting crew. MUA Pro Base Prime & Conceal Correcting Cream in Green applied under your base will tone down the redness (clever, eh?) to get your skin looking more model-like and less maroon while you get your squat on. Extra points if you catch the attention of Mr morning treadmill hottie. 

Go easy on the base

Wearing a full face of base makeup when you’re working out at the gym can clog pores and lead to pesky spots and let's be honest, we'd rather keep blemishes at bay. A tinted moisturiser is a better bet, as light formulas are less likely to congest your skin but will still give you the lil' bit of coverage that you're craving during your post-work circuits class.

Hide that spot of trouble

Need to cover up the odd spot or blemish? We feel ya. The squat rack is intimidating enough without having to worry about your complexion imperfections. Dab on a bit of concealer, set it with a little powder and you’re good to go. Just be careful not to rub your face too hard with that sweat towel, eh?!

Spin-proof mascara

To avoid panda eyes while you’re perfecting those lunges, a waterproof mascara is a no-brainer. Why? Well waterproof is also code for sweat-proof which means it won't budge, no matter how hard you work. It's a gym bag winner, especially if you've set your sights on that cutie in box and bell and are hoping to score his number after class!

Sweat-proof brows

So you’ve painstakingly applied brow pencil, then wiped your forehead with a towel mid-workout and smeared away those arches, eek! The clever Wunderbrow formula stays put for up to three days and won’t budge until you remove it. It's what looking-good-in-the-gym dreams are made of.
