How to Freshen Up Fast After Working Out
Answer: Ah -- depending on your level of intensity, there are several tricks to avoid wrecking your looks.
For Light Exercise: Apply a primer beneath foundation to act as a sweat-proof barrier, says Rebecca Morrice Williams, a makeup artist and founder of Becca Cosmetics.
For Moderate Exercise: If your plan involves heavy sweating, remove makeup with a cleansing cloth, then touch up after class with a compact powder foundation, lip gloss, and a shimmery shadow.
For Hard Workouts: Finally, did you do something truly high-intensity, like Spinning? If your face is flushed post-workout and your skin feels hot, wait about a half hour before reapplying makeup.
