How to wear subtle makeup to the gym

Are you one of those who cannot step out of the house without makeup? Even when it comes to going to the gym? We won’t judge you, we respect your right to sweat it out the way you want. That being said, a full makeup look can cause harm to your skin and set deep inside your pores. So, here are 5 makeup tips that are subtle and safe to be worn in gym or yoga class.




Skip wearing BB cream or foundation which can get clogged into your pores. Instead go for an oil-control face cream such as the Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Day Crème. It suits all skin types, absorbs easily and does not make skin look greasy.




One of the best ways to instantly make your face look polished is by defining your brows. Fill sparse spots if any using the Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil, its waterproof formula will stay put during your sweat session.




Wear a thin line of waterproof eyeliner, very close to your eyes. Go for deep brown or navy blue colours instead of a jet black to get well defined eyes. The Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal - Ash Brown will instantly make your eyes look stunning.




Apply a thin coat of waterproof mascara and skip the curler to make them look natural. We recommend the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara - Night Drama, this smudge proof and waterproof mascara won’t budge while you’re burning calories.




Even matte lipsticks have a tendency to smudge during exercise, instead skip your bold colours and opt for a tinted lip balm. The Lakme Lip Love Chapstick is hydrates, soothes and offers your lips a subtle tint making it perfect for gym.
