24 hours before leaving towards my vacation destination, I decided to shell out a lot of money for a nice little gadget. I am kind of a tech geek, I also adore statistics. The one thing that I am not is a watch person. Owning a large scala of expensive watches I have to admit that I almost never wear a watch because most of the times I forget or do not like the feeling of it on my wrist. Some time ago I used to own a fitbit flex. I also wrote an article about it. But after a long time the band somehow irritated my skin and I decided to sell the flex and get a different one. Being the pondering girl that I am I did not buy a new one. For 3 months I went on and checked different trackers like Garmin and Jawbone. Even one of my favorite brands Fossil has wearable technology. Still I decided to go for the design that I love and get a Fitbit Blaze. Now I can make a lame pun about a blazing hot watch, but I will just get on with reviewing this little band of information.
I personally do not feel that you NEED to wear make-up when working out. But I do like myself a little make-up when I am going to sport and that made me wonder. Why do people wear make-up when sporting and what is my opinion about this subject. Let me start with saying what I wear when sporting, I tend to wear a full face of make-up or at least the above products. Most of the times I add a lipstick or gloss that does not move during my work-out because nobody wants it all running over their face. My current favorite lip product for sport is Bourjois Rouge Velvet it gives amazing color payoff and stays firmly in place but also these glosses are amazing. When in doubt always go for a liquid lipstick like OCC, Anastasia or Dose of colors. But I am getting sidetracked. I tend to powder my face before running out of the door but to be honest I will get shiny and sweaty when working out so I do not mind. Also I tend to powder in my eyebrows and spray some perfume that is pretty basic. Now I do have to admit that I LIVE for a winged eyeliner and I drop that on my face also when I am working out. As a volleybal player I think it is also slightly intimidating when I stare them down with my sharp winged liner. But then again I am less serieus with my bright pink sport shoes.
So I do wear make-up when working out, but I never carry make-up in my sport bag. Why? Because I go to play sports and not to look the prettiest on the field. The moment I start I care very little for appearance and so much more for results. Who cares is my eyeliner is not perfect at the end as long as I won the match I am happy.
I once had a teammate years ago that asked me during a training to look in her eyes. I looked expecting her to ask me if she had a bug or lash in her eye. But she said “Is my make-up still okay?”. I am not a fan of that mindset during sport. I do not mind people taking a quick selfie but sport is not a fashion show.
So what is your opinion about wearing make-up during sport and what is your preference?
