Keep Makeup Fresh During Games

Sports and makeup don't usually mix. If you decide to wear makeup during games and practice, invest in makeup made specifically for sports.


Let's face it, ladies, makeup and sports don't always mix. Wearing makeup during athletic competition is a personal preference; however, if you choose to do it, you can stay fresh through the game with these simple techniques:

Sports-Specific Foundation

Companies formulate sports foundations with water-resistant ingredients to ensure they hold up against intense moisture, including sweat. Also, if you train or play outside during the summer season, you can find sports foundation with SPF properties to protect your skin from sun damage.

Waterproof Mascara

When water or sweat comes into contact with standard mascara, it can smear. Waterproof mascara will stay where it's supposed to: on your eyelashes.

Long-Wear Lipstick

Designed to be smudge-proof and to stay on your lips all day, long-wear lipstick will make your lips look vibrant and colorful throughout the game.

Avoid Makeup That Cakes

Keep your makeup fresh during games by avoiding makeup that has a tendency to cake, including powders, eye shadow, cream foundations and powder blush.
