How to Wear Makeup to the Gym Without Anyone Knowing

Updated 01/28/18

Confess to wearing makeup to the gym and some might scorn. They'll probably ask why you need to wear a spot of lipstick or a bit of mascara when you're only going to sweat it off anyway. Well, despite that common misconception (you definitely won't sweat it all off), there's probably only one place we wouldn't wear makeup and that's to bed.

Why exactly should we feel bad about wearing our favourite lippie when we're working out? Don't we all have the right to feel confident wherever we are? For us, it's less about trying to impress the other gym bunnies and more about how we feel. Plus, most of the time we're usually dashing to the gym from work, and who has time to cleanse, tone and moisturise more than twice a day?! 

We spoke to makeup artist extraordinaire Mary Greenwell on how to wear makeup to the gym, what the rules are and why you can wear as much eyeliner as you blooming well want.
