As a Fitness Instructor I may spend my work day as a hot mess, sweaty bitch, stinky gym rat but at the very least I always try to look professional doing it.
One way I feel better about leading a class is to make sure I am made up. Keep in mind I don’t glob on makeup Kardashian style but I like my foundation, my eye shadow, my liner, mascara, blush, anyway, you get the picture.
Now I know what you are thinking, “Oh my God!! Working out in makeup is so bad for your skin.” And while this may be true for some people I can honestly say that in the 2 plus years I have been an Instructor my skin hasn’t suffered any major breakouts or fallout from wearing makeup in class. A good part of that has to do with the fact that I take good care of my skin but, alas, that is another topic for another post.
Today I am just talking about the fitness studio as my workplace and for me I know that looking professional, neat and well groomed is important. As a Fitness Instructors I should be held to the same grooming standards as any other professional. If I walked into my Doctor’s office and she had on a stained shirt, messy hair and food stuck to her face I would maybe want to reschedule or find another person to give me a PAP smear. Don’t misunderstand me, I am not saying every Instructor or Doctor or Waitress needs to or should wear makeup I am just saying that looking professional is part of being professional and I know I feel more together when my face is together.
Which brings me to why I am writing this post. I am in love with URBAN DECAY All-Nighter Long Lasting Make Up Spray. It has been a life saver, face saver, make up saver.
Before finding this product I would look like a creature from “House of Wax” after my class. Half my make up was dripping down my face and the other half had already made it to my waistband. Pretty much I looked like a horror show.
I stumbled upon URBAN DECAY All-Nighter Long Lasting Make Up Spray while waiting online to check out at Sephora. There was a small sample bottle of a similar product in the “impulse area” and I decided to check out the reviews online. After a brief search the URBAN DECAY seemed to be the most lauded and I decided to give it a shot.
At the end of class my hair is dripping, my clothes are soaking, my muscles are quitting but my make up is staying. Oh URBAN DECAY All-Nighter Long Lasting Make Up Spray, where have you been all my life?
I purchased my new hero online at Sephora. For the record Sephora has a great trial and error policy. If you buy a product and it is not for you it can easily be returned.
Even if you don’t need your make up to stay in place while working out this is a great product to keep your face in place throughout the day.
Whatever your day may be.
Urban Decay’s All-Nighter Long Lasting Make Up Spray is available at Sephora stores and at Sephora online.
