Look good, feel good is a saying that I truly believe in. I feel the most motivated when I feel good about myself. For me, that starts with waking up, getting dressed, throwing on a little bit of makeup, and getting in a workout. If you’re working out as hard as you should be, there’s undoubtedly a lot of sweat going on, and for the most part, sweat and makeup aren’t a good pair. That’s why we’ve rounded up the best sweat-proof makeup to rock during your next workout!
Inglot has been around for over 30 years and can be found Internationally. They originally started in the theatre and have done the makeup for several major productions such as The Lion King, Pippin, and Mamma Mia. Because of their strong theatre background all of Inglot’s products are sweat-proof to allow the cast to look flawless throughout their many performances. Inglot has also been used at several fashion shows during both New York Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week in the Kenzo, Michael Costello, and Baja East shows. If it’s good enough for The Lion King Production and a Kenzo fashion show, it’s definitely good enough to rock during your next workout. In particular, we love the Inglot AMC Mousse Foundation because it’s long-lasting, natural looking, provides sheer coverage, is easy and quick to apply, and of course, is sweat-proof!
This concealer is the perfect addition to your Inglot AMC Mousse Foundation because it will provide a little more coverage to your under-eye area and your blemishes.

The product includes collagen and Vitamins C and K that delve deeper into your skin to reduce the signs of aging and to improve the overall health of your skin. The best part? It’s waterproof and won’t budge no matter how sweaty your spin class becomes.
A little blush will have you looking fresh faced and glow-y even before you’ve finished an amazing workout.

This Make Up For Ever product is easy to apply and blend for a natural look that’s perfect for the gym!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara has received rave reviews and is the favorite of several major beauty bloggers.

I never leave the house without my brows on, not even for a workout! If you’re like me, you’ll love the Fluidline Brow Gelcreme by MAC.

The MAC Brow Gelcreme has been Ophthalmologist tested, Dermatologist tested, is non-acnegenic, and works well for all skin types. It’s rated 5/5 stars on maccosmetics.com and users report that they love the ease of application and its long lasting capabilities, even while exercising.
This is by far one of my favourite lip products on the market. Kat Von D is known for her tattoo-like makeup, which basically means that it won’t smudge, crease, move, or flake. This liquid lipstick is long-wearing and has a smooth matte finish, which makes it the perfect lip product for the gym for many reasons. Firstly, it will last through blood, sweat, and tears (just kidding, but not really). Secondly, it’s matte and is a non-sticky formula so your hair won’t stick to your face. And lastly, the product is infused with vitamin E and sunflower seed oil so it’s as comfortable to wear as your favourite pair of yoga pants!
