Ten of the best beauty products for gym-goers

Ten of the best beauty products for gym-goers

MELANIE MORRIS is unapologetic about wearing make-up to the gym.

Yes, I wear make-up to the gym, especially if it won’t run or transfer. And I’m not the only one. Thankfully, beauty companies are on the case, with a host of heroes and new launches that can keep pace. So while my form may not be perfect, at least my brows will be.

Benefit Ka-Brow!, €26.

Perfect for the sweatiest of sessions, this product will keep brows defined and drawn just as you like them, from subtle to full-blown drama – nothing will budge those sisters.

ESPA Muscle Rescue Balm, €40.

When the rigours of a workout start to take their toll, reach for ESPA Muscle Rescue Balm, which contains cooling peppermint and eucalyptus to melt away tension, plus clove oil to soothe and warm exhausted muscles.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Miracle Hydrating Mist, €25.

Between HIITing cardio bursts, put rest periods to good use by spritzing skin with this mist which delivers moisture and comfort to the skin, whilst feeding it with protective antioxidants.

Charlotte Tilbury Brightening Youth Glow,€49.

Revitalise the complexion by applying the new Brightening Youth Glow for a gentle iridescence.

 Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara, €23.

This Mascara is the all-situations, all-weather, hardcore version of possibly the sexiest mascara on the planet, as it defines, curls and thickens lashes with steadfast inky blackness.

La Mer’s The Moisturizing Soft Lotion, €220.

Going nude (of make-up!) to the gym? Prep skin with La Mer’s The Moisturizing Soft Lotion for a controlled hit of glowy hydration without any greasy skin surface.

MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Foundation, €36.50.

Not even a hot shower will derail MAC Pro Longwear from doing its job. And with a 24-hour lasting promise, it’ll see you smartly through marathon season, matching fresh face with smart pace.

Inglot’s Duraline, €12.

Want to go to the gym with a full face of colour? Keep your favourite liners and powders in place by applying a clear slick of Inglot’s Duraline.

The CliniqueFIT Post-Workout Neutralising Face Powder, €31.

Clinique launched a whole range of gym-purposed solutions this year, from budge-proof mascara to swipes (sweat-wicking wipes);  but this is the collection hero, delivering a puff of opaque yellow powder to calm crimson complexions.

SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Masque, €157.

This speedy gel formula mask that will quickly quell heat flushes and high colour.
