Some people might think it is silly to get all dressed up for a workout session, be it on the dance floor or the gym. You are going to sweat it out anyway, right?
Yes, I am going to sweat it all out, but I want to look good doing it. Or at least, less horrifying. Haha!
While I prefer going all naked on the face when I go to the gym because gym workout is mostly a solo activity, I do make an effort to put on some makeup when I go for dance classes that require social interaction. (Oh, I just started taking up Salsa lessons and social dance sessions are great fun!)
Not because I want to bat my eyelashes at the opposite sex or impress people with my makeup skills and color coordination under the low lights, but because makeup gives me the confidence to get into the groove and dance better.
You want to make yourself feel good while exercising, so if hot pink shoelaces or a colorful bandana gives you that extra ounce of motivation, go for it! For me, some light eyeshadow color, eyeliner, and mascara works for me.
So here’s what I wore to a salsa dance class two weeks ago!
Face Primer – Murad Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15
Foundation – Lancome Maqui Blanc MiracleLiquid Foundation SPF 26/PA++ (with Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki Brush)
Powder – MAC Studio Fix Foundation NC 25 (with EcoTools Blush Brush)
Eye Primer – Urban Decay Primer Potion Original
Lid – MAC Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow (with MAC 239)
Contour Area – MAC Peaches blush (with MAC 239 and MAC 217)
