Who says you can’t look fab while out and about burning calories? Running a mile or two? Walking your dog? Gyrating to zumba? Chasing kids in the park? Step out looking good with these sweat/water resistant and simple beauty aids.
This tutorial was inspired by a friend who asked about a beauty routine that can help her look even more fabulous despite the scorching summer heat downunder.
There is only one product that will protect you from the sun’s harmful rays: Sunscreen. Never go out without wearing one. Choose a product with at least SPF15 and has both UVA/UVB protection. For more information on sunscreen, click here.
Save on makeups. Use a product that has multi-tasking functions. I like to use Clinique Super City Block SPF 40 because it also acts as a moisturizer and sunscreen. And because it is lightly tinted, you have the option to wear it alone.
Use water/sweat resistant products or you end up running like a zombie. Line your upper lashline with water resistant eyeliner, follow with 1-2 coats of water resistant mascara.
Look fab but not overdone. Apply neutral lip color. If you are pale like me, you have the option to apply a hint of color. Lightly brush rosy pink blush on cheeks or bronzer on the side of the face up to mid forehead (where light hits you).
These are the products I would normally use when I’m out running. These are for illustration purposes only.
