Don’t Sweat It!
Make-up with Staying Power
By Sasha Fastovskiy
ym. Sweat. Makeup. Somehow, these words do not form a winning combination. For those brave souls who venture outside their home gyms or prefer finer machinery rather than simply running around the block, makeup shouldn’t be an issue. But alas, gyms are becoming the latest place to see and be seen ~ and as all-powerful as we women of the world are, most of us still hate to be seen without our makeup.
Luckily, makeup has become technologically advanced. Afraid that your mascara will leave you looking like a raccoon? Go waterproof! Worried about breaking out because of your foundation? Try oilproof! Don’t want smudgy or sticky lips? Try an all-day lipstain! Below are some sweatproof, waterproof, streakproof, cryproof, and sighproof products found right in the drugstore. Now there really is no excuse not to go to the gym.
Almay Wake-Up Call! Energizing Concealer SPF 15. Oil-free, fragrance-free, and good for sensitive contact wearers. The SPF 15 is a good excuse for working out outdoors. Works great for blemishes and under-eye circles, and comes in a tiny tube.
Revlon Skinlights Illusion Wand. More of a highlighter than a concealer, it lightens up your under-eye area, softens lines, creases, blemishes, or other discolorations. Great light texture.
TIP: Look for products that specifically say that they are oil-free and either gel- or silicone-based. Put these on in the morning and they’ll stay on, and will also allow your skin to breathe and avoid breakouts.

TIP: For after-workout glam, put some clear lipgloss over the stain to get shine.
L’Oreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara. Does what it says: adds significant volume to thinner lashes. However, it doesn’t significantly curl them because of the heaviness of the thick formula.
Neutrogena Lash Tint. Perfect for mascara-phobes! Best for light lashes, eyebrows, or bottom lashes.
Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof. In the classic pink bottle. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
