If you're one of those women who don't leave the house without putting on a painted face, it's probably a stretch to assume you'd go anywhere without makeup... even the gym. You're probably not alone. Look around your favorite workout facility, and you'll likely notice that not every face is fresh. If you can't be compelled to bypass the pre-workout prettifying session, you should keep these tips in mind at the very least. The last thing you want to be distracted by is makeup running down your face. For starters, skip the foundation, tinted moisturizer and bronzer. They're all likely to melt away the instant you break a sweat. If you feel the need to lay a foundation, apply a small amount of moisturizer -- the non-tinted kind. Next, bypass blush. A few minutes on the elliptical and you're sure to generate an all-natural flush. Of course, you'll want to skip the eyeliner if you're one of those folks who is constantly wicking away the sweat off your face. And sunscreen can also become public enemy number one when it makes its way into your eyes. Now that you know what you shouldn't do, here's what you can get by with. A little lip gloss will go a long way in helping you achieve that all-natural look. We're not talking dark red lips and lip liner -- instead opt for a light pink or nude shade just to give your lips a nice glossy glow. If you feel your eyes need a little something, don't be afraid to apply some powder to the brow and a layer of waterproof mascara. Clear mascara will also do the trick and prevent you from looking like Rocky the raccoon before your workout is complete.
