Gym-Bag Makeup

fullsizeoutput_3b8e.jpegYay!  I got my computer back, finally!  Now, if the sun would come out and the Mardi Gras season would come to a close, everything would be perfect in my blogging world.

We rode in the parade last week and are riding in another this week.  The weather was absolutely gorgeous for the past parade.  Praying it will be the same for the next.

In between teaching school and loading beads in cars and on floats, I have still been teaching fitness classes.  I have noticed that for the first time in my adult life that I was having breakouts!?!

I put two and two together and realized that I needed to hit the gym with a clean face instead of one full of my makeup from teaching school.  My pores were clogged and the sweat could not get out; therefore, bacteria was getting in them and making pimples the size of Texas.

I am not one to go totally bare-faced to the gym.  So I got on the world wide web and got to searching for something, anything, I could wear on my face without causing breakouts!

Well, I stumbled upon a new line by Clinique, called Clinique Fit.  I headed up to Ulta and filled my basket with all kinds of goodies!fullsizeoutput_3b8f.jpegfullsizeoutput_3b94.jpegFirst, I got this workout makeup with a broad spectrum SPF 40.  It’s matte, oil-free, fragrance-free and 12-hour.  It has great coverage without being heavy.  I ordered the medium color.fullsizeoutput_3b90.jpegfullsizeoutput_3b95.jpegfullsizeoutput_3b96.jpegSecond, I ordered the post-workout powder.  It only comes in one color. I love the mirror on top of the lid, too.  I actually have been using this pre-workout recently, and it has worked really well.  It has a sponge applicator attached to the powder that makes it super convenient. fullsizeoutput_3b91.jpegfullsizeoutput_3b97Third, I bought a post-workout, sheer gel for lips and cheeks.  I have also been using this pre-workout for a little color on my cheeks.  I didn’t like the feel of it on my lips.  It was kind of tacky, so I applied a pink lipliner and lip balm instead. fullsizeoutput_3b93.jpegfullsizeoutput_3b9a.jpegLast but not least, I bought the 24-hour workout mascara.  It goes on smoothly without clumps and really extends my lashes.  It has proven the test of sweat and toweling off.

  1. Makeup
  2. Powder
  3. Cheek gel
  4. Mascara
  5.  (And, my own) Lip liner and my fave lip balmIMG_1296.JPGAnd, here I am after an hour HIIT class. I still had the products on, and they DIDN’T CLOG MY PORES!  Goodbye zits-ville!

Here is the whole line here! Yes, there’s more! (Sign up for email and get 15% off).

Stay beautiful!

Toodle-oo,
