makeup you can work out in

One of the skills I developed living in New York City is the ability to leave my apartment in the morning with a single bag ready for an array of plans. Things I’ve learned: day-to-night outfits are real, these bandaids replace the need for a change of shoes, and a makeup routine that can last through hot yoga.

I’m not against going bare-faced but sometimes a workout class is followed by brunch or happy hour or something that calls for looking somewhat put-together. And sometimes taking the subway in the summer is about the same thing. It was a happy accident that I discovered this four-step makeup routine that will last through anything.

Here’s what works. I start with this Becca primer which isn’t even advertised to extend the wear time of makeup. Then it’s a layer of my favorite BB cream applied with my fingertips (and a dab of concealer if needed) set with a translucent powder. The key is to seal it all in with a few spritzes of the Pixi makeup fixing mist.
