By May 10, 2017 No Comments

We’ve all been there—you finish a super intense ride, wipe off your face, and realize that 99% of any makeup that was once on your complexion is now on your towel.

Happily, there’s no shortage of new sweatproof, budge-proof formulas that will stay on your skin…so that you can look just as good walking out of class as you did walking in. Check out six of our favorite makeup finds that will stand up to your sweatiest ride.

1. Sweat Cosmetics Mineral Powder Foundation SPF 30

Consider this the ultimate “one and done” product. Sure, it’s a powder foundation, but thanks to the (always necessary) SPF, plus added antioxidants to shield your complexion from damaging free radicals, it also doubles as skincare. The lightweight, breathable powder won’t clog pores, so you can dust it on before your workout, sweat to your heart’s content, and never have to stress about breakouts. We also love it as a quick touch-up to tamp down shine and redness post-class.

2. Birchbox Arrow Enhance Waterproof Eyeliner + Brightener

Not only does this liner not run, it’s also a great multi-tasker, making it the perfect option for your gym bag. Use the black tip to line and define your eyes, the shimmery pink side to highlight and brighten. Pro tip: Lining your bottom lashline with the lighter color helps counteract any redness, making you look wide awake (even if you’re not).

3. Tarte Lifted Sweatproof Mascara

Buh-bye, raccoon eyes. This sweatproof formula stays put no matter how sweaty you get, and also contains antioxidants to help keep lashes soft. Added bonus points for the brown-black shade, which enhances your fringe, but doesn’t look overly dramatic or makeup-y.

 4. Rae Climate Control Mineral Tint SPF 20

Liquid foundation fans will love this lightweight, oil-free option. Heat- and humidity- resistant, it’s ideal for either workouts or just muggy summer days. The coverage is buildable, but never looks (or feels) heavy or cakey, and makes skin appear flawless and glowy. Who doesn’t want that?

5. Wunder2 WunderBrow

Simply filling in your brows can make you look totally polished and put together, even if you’re not wearing any other makeup. Waterproof, smudge-proof, and transfer-proof, this tinted gel isn’t going anywhere (it actually lasts up to three days). Available in five hues, blondes should choose one that matches the darkest shade in their hair, while brunettes should opt for one that’s slightly lighter than their hair color for the most natural end result.

6. Too Cool For School Perfect Day Makeup Fixer Spray

If you get to the studio and realize you’re not wearing any of these sweatproof makeup options, just spritz on this mist. It sets everything in place, while simultaneously hydrating your skin (always a good thing). Plus, it also works to refresh makeup, making it choice to spray on post-class or anytime during the day when you feel like your look needs a little
