I have a confession to make: I wear makeup when I workout. No, not a full out beat face but yes, I normally don at least 5 pieces of makeup for my sweat sesh’s. Because I’m normally on Snapchat pre, post, or during workouts, I’ve been asked what it is that I’m wearing so I’ve put this list together!
1. Shea Moisture Foundation
I tried this out doing a post for my girl Brittany and now I wear it everyday. I mix it with a moisturizer to create my own version of a BB cream that gives my complexion a clear and even look. Now honestly speaking, because I sweat a lot, this does come off.
2. Dr. Brandt’s XYZ Face Cream
I’ll be 33 in a couple days and have become obsessed with making sure I don’t look like I’m aging. I mix the Shea Moisture Foundation with this cream so that all day I’m fighting wrinkles. Plus, this moisturizer feels amazing. Nothing like my pores opening up and welcoming this in!
3. Tarte Lip Stain
One of my oldest friends introduced me to this a couple years ago and I haven’t stopped wearing it since. I love the red because red is such a power color to me and when I’m working out, that’s exactly what I need. Plus, who doesn’t look great in a beautiful red right? The best part of this is that it doesn’t kiss, bite, or sweat off.
4. Stila Waterproof Eye Liner
Eyeliner + Mascara + Red lippie = one amazing look. Such a simple and easy to pull off look that survives even the sweatiest of workouts.
5. Waterproof Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
This is my favorite mascara now so I wear it everyday but I love how this doesn’t come off unless I want it to so when I’m wearing my “Muscles & Mascara” tank, I’m not worried about raccoon eyes.
Sweat-Proof Makeup For the Win
You know how some people get up and get dressed every day regardless of whether the leave their homes for work or not? This is the equivalent to that. While I’m not 100% comfortable with my body, that doesn’t mean that I can’t look good while I’m working towards my goals. A little bit of makeup makes the difference for me and makes me feel beautiful as I’m working on my goals.

60-Day Challenge Update
Week 7: The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly
This morning when I weigh-ed in on my scale I was officially down 15lbs since the beginning of the competition. I’m stoked. I’m gaining more and more confidence and am feeling more like I’m ready for the zombie apocalypse should it come (that IS what I’m training for after all!!). I’m paying more attention to what I’m eating and when and my cravings. I find that if I haven’t properly spaced out my eating then I all I want to do is stuff my face which is counterproductive. I’ve also found that starting my day off with some quality proteins combats my hunger.
