Are you one of the people that likes to get a workout in the morning and then head to work? Do you prefer to workout in the evening and then head to another obligation? -OR- Do you work out on Saturdays and then leave straight from the gym to run errands or attend your Saturday events? I've done all of these! Either way, you need to be post-gym fly right!? Right!
Here are a few tips on how to pack a quick make-up bag for the Gym for all the Medium Maintenance Gals:
MEDIUM MAINTENANCE GYM MAKEUP BAG
Facial wipes, refresher, mini-mascara, mini-eyeliner, eyebrow pencil, almond oil, blush, Juicy Tube or lipstick
STEP 1. Facial wipes. These great disposable wipes come in really handy at the gym! If you read my previous post on washing your face before your exercise, you should always wash your face BEFORE you work out to remove any make-up so your pores can breath. After your workout, you should wipe your face with a facial wipe and finish with a cold splash to close pores.
STEP 2. Caudalie Beauty Elixir. This will give your face a great refresher! Spritz this on your face for a nice refresh!
STEP 3. If you wear foundation, get a separate miniature travel tube and put some of your foundation in there so you don't have to bring your whole bottle.
STEP 4. Eyebrow Pencil. If you like to fill in or darken your eyebrows, bring this! I use an eyebrow pencil by Maybeline called Define-a-Brow all the time and is a great alternative to a full eyebrow fill kit.
STEP 5: Eyeliner and Mascara. Get a miniature of your favorite eyeliner and Mascara (I just got the FREE GIFT SET from Lancome and it includes a mini mascara with a full brush and a mini eyeliner.) Also Sephora sells a lot of mini sets!
STEP 6. Blush! blush adds the perfect feminine finish to any made-up face. I like the little pods from Mac as they are easy to carry and last a long time!
PS If you are a "LESS IS MORE" type, the you should skip the foundation STEP.
What's your staple make-up bag item?
