Get a sweaty face during your workout? No more, here comes the sportmetix solution!
Have you ever tried to hide your sweat under lots of makeup during your workout? If so, you'll know that it's difficult because no matter how much you use, the sweat will either still show or you will not allow your skin to breathe. So what do you do? Makeup artists found a solution and, believe it or not, it’s inspired by the same technique in which sandbags are used to prevent flooding. The method is called ‘sandbagging’ and was originally used to prevent eye makeup from running. It’s the only way to keep your workout face from smudging or smearing. Here’s how it works.
To stop flooding water from rising too high, sand dams are built, which are filled with coarse sand that have many pores to absorb it. The rule is, the coarser-grained the sand the more water can be absorbed by it. The exact same rule holds true for makeup! Most women prefer finer makeup as it sits better between impurities and skin irregularities, giving the impression of better coverage. However, this is a false conclusion when it comes to your workout beauty routine. During your workout your skin will sweat and it wants to breathe.
Here are our tips:
1) To avoid your mascara or eye makeup from running during your workout, simply apply mineral loose foundation around your eyes. This will create a natural dam!
2) For your whole face, go through your usual beauty routine, which may include using moisturiser, primer, mascara, eyeliner etc. before applying an extra layer of mineral loose powder to prevent any nasty smudges. It will simply absorb sweat or tears and help keep everything where it's supposed to be.
