Makeup ideas that survive sweat
So here is the scenario: you are dancing up a storm, working out a gym or playing hard in a sports field. You may be on the move, but the problem is your makeup melts with your every action. Not a good thing! Especially if that guy you are eyeing for is at the same place.
You can imagine your horror as soon as your mascara starts to smudge and big balls of “colored” sweats are in your face! The secret behind looking good even when you are working out only requires a little knowledge and a simple combination of the right products and application. Read on Makeup ideas for tips on how to keep your makeup in place.
Fitness Makeup ideas
Sports Makeup means having a barely-there look that gives you the right amount of glow. Also, for the outdoors, you’ll need a built-in protection factor to cope up with the sun and other harsh elements.
A healthy glow equates having a sheer foundation or a tinted moisturizer, lip gloss and a swipe of bronzing powder. A water-based foundation is great if you wish to combat greasiness and do not want to visit the ladies room every now and then for frequent touch-ups.
You should also bear in mind that the sheerer the lip gloss is the more often you need to reapply it. Use a lip liner that matches your lip gloss to make it stick and lasts longer. Apply less mascara while working out as it runs easily in the heat. For some people who cannot leave the house with their eyes “naked”, waterproof mascara is a must. Use a cream eyeshadow on your eyes to get a natural yet defined look that will stay put even when you start to sweat.
Makeup ideas for a night of dancing and partying
We all want the perfect makeup, especially when it comes to partying with friends. You always want to look your best but don’t want to bother with frequent bathroom visits. Here is where the extra time spent in preparation is vital as it will buy you from several hours of sweat proof makeup. Before you apply your foundation, use a cream ‘primer’. This miracle product provides a long-lasting nonslip base for your foundation to cling in to. You also need to seal your foundation with a pressed or loose powder as even the best foundation cannot resist a shine after perspiration. For added confidence, carry a compact powder for intermittent touch-ups. Blotting powders are also helpful.
Makeup ideas for Eyes
The humidity in nightclubs is an added headache, especially where your eye makeup is concerned. Wearing an eyeshadow primer which would resist oil breakthrough is important as it will prevent your shadow to run into the crease and helps your eyeliner last a bit longer. You can also apply foundation onto your eyelids, then use a matte eyeshadow on top to keep your eye makeup in place no matter how hot it gets! Use cake eyeliner that is applied wet with an eyeliner brush and allow it to dry. Apply liner on top lid only. This will prevent tell-tale under-eye smudges. Waterproof eyeliner is a must.
Mascara should be applied to top and bottom eyelashes. (This must be waterproof as well if you do not want to look like a raccoon!). Mascara should be applied close to the roots of your lashes so it hits the skin and will look extra defined and full. Applying on a blush can make you healthy looking throughout the night. Make it last longer by applying a cheek stain first and blend well with your fingers and then, apply your favorite powder blush right after. Use a specially designed lip base product for your foundation applied to the lip area. Use a lip pencil to line and color in your lips.
Makeup ideas for Lips and Face
This provides two bases and a lasting color underneath your lipstick when it starts to wear off. There are different lipsticks on the market that promises long-lasting protection. Look for a shade that best suits you. Apply one layer, and bite down a layer of tissue then apply the second layer.
Take the product with you for bathroom touch-ups. You can fake slimmer legs by applying a self-tanner and putting into your inner and outer thighs and calves. Keep them eyeing for your gams by mixing your bronzer cream and your lotion and applying it into the shin of your legs.Makeup can truly work wonders on a woman’s face. It has the power to enhance her look and emphasize her beauty. Some women might even feel a surge of confidence every time they put their make up on. However, the biggest enemy of makeup is moisture. Working out, playing a sport or partying all night with friends can ruin your makeup but armed with the right knowledge and the right products, all you have to do it to sit back and enjoy.
