When I work out, I sweat. Sorry, not sorry… I’m not one of those girls who likes to go to the gym in full hair and makeup like a Kardashian, but at a school like Carolina I’m doomed to run into every cute boy or TA I’ve ever had while I’m red-faced after cycling.
Eye makeup is your safest bet for endurance. Go minimal, use a primer, and stick to waterproof. This look works for me at the gym, the pool, the beach and outdoor summer concerts. Coachella anyone?
What I Used:
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original
Urban Decay Naked2 Eyeshadow Palette (Foxy + Tease)
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner
L’Oreal Voluminous Curved-Brush Mascara
Nars Eyeshadow in Coconut Grove (fill in brows)
Before the Gym:
After 30 minutes on the elliptical
20 reps hip abduction
20 reps hip adduction
15 power squats with 50-lb bar
15 chest presses at 35-lbs
2 planks for 30-seconds
20 fire hydrants, each leg
15 oblique twists, each side
30 tricep presses
and a bunch of yoga stretches…
Cat-eye liner still in tact:
To really put this high-power liquid liner to the test, I laid in the quad for a post-gym tanning session before class. It was 80 degrees and sunny.
No better place to unwind:
And when I walked home a few hours later (still sweaty, still not sorry), my eye makeup was still perfect!
