Weekends are spared for three things—workouts, brunches and dozing off till Monday happens. A Sunday brunch post gym is always on the list and obviously you gotta look flawless for all those crazy selfies you are going to take. But ladies, there are certain makeup do’s and don’ts you need to follow, as your skin is dehydrated and can be harmed with heavy makeup after workout.
Here are some makeup tips that could come in handy when you want to look flawless after your hot and heavy gym session...
Wash and Moisturise
You’d think you would sprint to brunch with your gal pals with that workout glow, but in reality, you’ve got sweaty hair, blushed out face and the remains of Friday night’s liner still smudged. So wash your face with cold water and a foaming face wash like the Dove Beauty Moisture Conditioning Facial Cleanser to remove sweat, dirt and makeup. Then apply a moisturiser like the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Creme. It soothes and hydrates skin, giving you a cooling effect and glossy finish.
A face mist refreshes and hydrates your skin and locks in the moisture. It will also help blend and set makeup, in place. Carry it with you for a splash of freshness and fragrance every now and then.
We recommend you go for lightweight makeup after the workout. Grab the Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale CC Cream as your only face makeup. It reduces redness on skin, leaving it even toned. It gives you a subtle glow and acts as a barrier from pollution too.
If you must wear eye makeup, we suggest you try the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara and the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal as both are smudge- and waterproof, so even if you tend to sweat after workout, you don’t have to worry about it.
Brunch calls for minimal makeup and bold lips. Prep your lips with the Vaseline Lip Care and apply a bold matt lipstick in a shade of your choice. Dab some on your cheeks too. You probably already have a rosy flush from the intense workout but a little blush never hurts anyone.
