An upside of working out in the morning is enjoying the post-workout glow. But a downside is the rush from the gym to your office. If you want to squeeze in an early workout and still look fresh afterwards for work or a Zoom meeting, it’s important to keep your skin care and makeup routines simple. Here’s an easy five-step post-workout makeup routine that can fit in your morning schedule:
To let your post-workout glow shine through, go for a BB cream that offers light and natural coverage. MIZON’s Snail Repair Intensive BB Cream is a great skin care-makeup hybrid. This hypoallergenic formula is packed with snail extract to soothe and hydrate skin, while evening out the complexion. You don’t have to pack a concealer in your makeup bag as this BB cream does the job of blurring blemishes.
Since you’re short on time, find a brow product like PONY EFFECT’s Sharping Brow Definer that enhances your natural eyebrows in no time. You won’t have to worry about overdone brows as this brow definer features a slim pencil to create natural, hair-like strokes. After filling in the brows, use the spoolie on the other end to soften your look.
As we continue to wear face masks, use this time to play up your eye makeup. Instead of applying eyeliner, opt for a simple makeup look using soft eye shadow shades. Consider packing an eye shadow palette in your gym bag so you can mix and match various shades, depending on the look you’re going for.
If you have time to add eyeliner to your eye makeup, go for it. But if you’re aiming for a natural, effortless look, a good mascara like CLIO’s Kill Lash Superproof Mascara will do. Count on this product to give lashes instant lift and volume. To help them stay curled throughout the day, use an eyelash curler before applying mascara.
Complete your post-workout makeup look with a lip tint. Lip tints give a pop of color and nourishment to lips at the same time. A’PIEU’s Juicy-Pang Mousse Tint Dried Fruit Edition offers four shades that are perfect to use every day.
If your lips need extra hydration, try I’M MEME’s I’m Mystery Volume Tint. It’s formulated with hyaluronic acid to leave your lips soft and plump. If you’re worried about wearing lip products with your mask, check out this blog post for recommendations of lip tints that won’t smudge beneath a mask.
