Boost your confidence at the gym!
You can wear make up to the gym to boost your workout confidence (yes, I'm serious!). Getting the right make up that looks natural can be difficult though. Having a little bit of make up on is something that makes me feel confident and when I'm more confident, I put more into my workouts.
Like my workouts, it's something I try to do everyday. But unlike workouts for a fitness expert, make up can drive me crazy on what colors or tones I need to wear. It's not easy like picking the right cardio or strength moves. I have a great understanding of helping people find their correct fitness workouts. But when it comes to make up, my expertise is lacking and buying "beauty" makes me frustrated.
What Make Up Do You Wear While Working Out?
I hate buying make up. It’s not the expense that is frustrating, it’s not knowing what to buy. From color choices for lips, eyes, cheeks, foundation, and even eyebrows to multiple brands and pricepoints, I find myself staring at the choices and aimlessly wandering around the store. It seems that even when I think I like a color after brushing it on the back of my hand, I come home and realize I made the wrong choice and it sits in my drawer.
Even with having a professional make up artist doing my make up for me several times a month, I still feel like I can’t get it right. Then a simple idea was introduced to me. The natural color of your hair lends to the palette of your skin.
Skin tone helps determine what color schemes work and don’t work to brighten and enhance your features. That’s where Jill Krisch came into my life. A simple matching of my hair color online led to a small daily kit and large full color kit that I confidently wear from lip color to eyes. I was really surprised that the system worked. But when the material color swatches matched so many of my favorite color choices in my closet, I started to understand the warm and cool color palettes that only make up designers recognize.
From the first application of the lipsticks to even the colors of eyeshadows, I felt comfortable with the results. I started to even branch out to the purples and greens on the deck and loved how it looked and lasted.
Finally, a make up solution that even I can understand! Share with me what colors work for you or share what you do to feel beautiful. Although there might be controversey over wearing make while working out, for me, as long as the look is natural, it just makes me feel more confident.
