{GBF Beauty | Feel Fab Look Fab Part II}

Thursday, October 30, 2014

As you know, I made it an October goal to amp up my fitness without sacrificing looking fab to feel fab. Part I of my Feel Fab Look Fab fitness beauty guide was all about the best workout skincare products. For Part II, I'm tackling makeup!

I'm not advocating wearing makeup to the gym. What's the point?  However if you do need to go straight from the gym to the office, date, etc...then you'll definitely need a few beauty products stashed in your arsenal. And when it comes to workout makeup, beauty is more than meets the eye as it's all about finding products that can withstand the sweat and heat of your workouts while efficiently complementing an on-the-move time crunching lifestyle. I've done the homework and have the found the best sweat and waterproof makeup products that will help you seamlessly transition from gym life to life outside lycra and spandex!

{Feel Fab Look Fab Part II: Makeup Routine}
{Youngblood Mineral Foundation $44} I can't believe I didn't go mineral sooner! The finely milled loose powder goes on matte, provides buildable coverage, and stays on through sweat and tears. And with mineral makeup, I don't have to worry about my foundation clogging my pores during workouts.
{Exuviance CoverBlend Concealing Treatment Makeup with SPF 20 $38} I use my concealer brush to dab a little bit of the concealer on blemishes and dark circles. The creamy formula stays on all day while releasing antioxidants to keep my skin healthy. I love the SPF which adds an extra layer of sun protection!

{Jane Iredale Eye Highlighter Pencil $16.50} When it comes to highlighters, I prefer the precision of a highlighter pencil. I've been using mainly the white side of this duo pencil on the inner corners of my eyes to make them look bigger and brighter while the pink side can be used as a cheek highlighter.

{Cargo Water Resistant Blush $26} The blush is highly pigmented and truly provides all day coverage! I love the pretty coral colors which compliments almost all skin tones.
  {Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade $18} After hearing my friend say she uses this eyebrow gel to her swim sessions and emerges from the water with her eyebrows intact, I knew I had to give it a try. Initially I was intimidated by it as I was afraid the gel would look harsh and severe. However, with a little practice in restraint, I was able to master the application process quite quickly. Instead of dipping the eyebrow brush directly from gel to brow, swipe the brush across the inside of the cap to remove excess product. The result is natural looking brows that can pretty much withstand anything and everything.

{Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner $20} The thin tip is easy to use and the all day wearability is exceptional-no smudging! And although I never stray from black when it comes to eyeliners, it does comes in some really cool shades for those that are a bit more experimental.

{Urban Decay Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara $20} I've been raving about this mascara to all my friends because it's simply the best mascara I've ever used. Due to regular use of Revitalash (I use the brow version for my lashes as the applicator is easier), my lashes are finally long enough to wear with mascara. Cannonball is 100% waterproof, smudge proof, life proof and create mega long lashes that stays curled all day and all night.

{MAC Pro Longwear Lip Creme $18} Lightweight, creamy, and lasts for up to 12 hours without a top coat. This is pretty much everything I'm looking for in a long wearing lipstick. And it's MAC which means the pigmentation and color selection are top shelf.
