Editors’ Picks: Sweat-Proof Makeup for the Gym

Ever been in spin class and look over to see the girl on the neighboring bike sporting a full face of makeup? Your first reaction is to slightly make fun of her; your second reaction is, I wish I could look that good while burning hundreds of calories at a pace that’s way too fast for me.

For makeup junkies who refuse to go a moment sans products at the gym (or during the sweltering days of a humid summer for that matter), here are five sweat-proof makeup products to heat up your beauty look.

Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation 2

MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Rouge

Editors’ Picks: Sweat-Proof Makeup for the Gym

As its brand name suggests, MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Aqua Rouge lip stain is waterproof, smudge-proof, and fade-proof—in fact, the Aqua collection was created for the Parisian Aquatic Ballet and tested underwater for five hours. More than a dozen colors are available, some more tame if you’re seeking something a bit more subtle for yoga class. $24; makeupforever.com
