These latest and greatest products mean you can wear sweat-proof make-up so that you can rock your mascara and train hard too.
While we’re not endorsing training in a full face of make-up (thinking practically here, you can end up with blocked pores and horrifically smudged mascara the minute you start sweating), we understand the need to look somewhat people-ready when you walk into the gym.
These products not only have serious staying power during your workout, but they won’t irritate your eyes or skin either… We’re talking waterproof mascara that won’t budge, barely there tinted moisturiser and a sweat-resistant brow pencil.

2. Clear coverage
