Before I start, I wanna get one thing out of the way real quick. I do not and will never, go to the gym. I do work out though, so I’m familiar with the struggle of wearing makeup while you sweat profusely.
That is why I’m writing this post!
I get it. Sometimes you need a little mascara and brow gel to get you through your workout. But you also need said products to stay put while you sweat your face off. You need gym approved makeup.
Well, today’s your lucky day cause this post is exactly that. So, if you wanna know what makeup products you should be wearing to the gym/other workout things that are less intimidating, keep reading!
Clinique Fit Workout Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 40
If you’re looking for a multipurpose product, this is it. This will not only even your skin out, it’ll protect it. If you tend to do your workouts outside, you definitely need the extra SPF.
But if you just want something to make your skin look even, this product also works for you. Plus it’s oil-free so it won’t make you look like a shiny disco ball and it’ll last longer on your face.
Covergirl Easy Breezy Volumizing Brow Gel
I know brows are a big deal to pretty much everyone. But there are people that need to fill in their brows to feel confident. Totally fine, btw!
Most of the time when you sweat, the brow product comes right off. And it’s not a pretty sight. So instead of going all out with the brow filling, I propose a brow gel.
This one by Covergirl is easy to apply and it makes your brows look groomed and fuller in seconds. The best part about it is that it does not smudge with sweat, or water, or anything that isn’t makeup remover. So you can see why it’s perfect for your workouts.
Mascara is another easy way to look more awake and feel more confident with your appearance.
And the Snapscara is just what you’re looking for. This is a natural looking mascara that’ll give your lashes a boost. This is a fiber mascara so it won’t flake all over your face. If for whatever reason it smudges, it’s extremely easy to remove. All you need is warm water and a few minutes.

Benefit Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain
I know not everyone wants to wear blush to the gym, specially since our face tends to get red when we work out. But hear me out on this one. Blush gives you the appearance of a fresh face. So this will help you look awake and like you’re ready to make your body suffer for a greater good!
The Benetint is yet another multipurpose product you can use on your cheeks and lips. Since this is a stain, it will adhere to your skin which means it will not move throughout the entire workout.
Another perk is that it will feel like nothing on the skin, which is important when you’re sweating like a pig. You can control how sheer or pigmented you want it to look and you can also apply it on your lips for a little extra something.
Again, I’m no gym expert but I am a sweat expert. So I can guarantee that these products will last through your workout without feeling uncomfortable or clogging your pores.
Do you have any other gym approved products I could add to the list? Or are you the ‘I don’t wear makeup to the gym’ type of person?
Thank you so much for reading! I hope this post was helpful 🙂
Lots of love,
