This is for the boss babes who squeeze a cycle class into their lunch break, yoga enthusiasts who head straight to the studio at the end of their day, and the barre instructors who want to look and feel great in every class. Makeup that lasts through sweat is a different kind of waterproof.

Since you’re looking for workout-proof makeup, here’s a list of fade-free products that will last all day, including that tough workout you have planned.


Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil

If you’re not part of the 1% of people who have naturally perfect eyebrows, finding an eyebrow pencil that fills your brows while lasting through a workout session is your solution. Especially if you want to wear more makeup because the rest of your day involves meetings, playdates, or cocktails.

Use a waterproof eyebrow pencil that applies like a wax but dries like a powder. Use a spoolie to brush out your brow hair before starting with the pencil. Draw short, light strokes to fill your brows and define your arches. The smaller the pencil tip, the better.

Thrive Causemetics’ Infinity Waterproof Eyebrow Linerä was tested and approved by pro-athletes and makeup artists for its waterproof abilities. It also includes hydrating ingredients like jojoba oil and shea butter to prevent skin dryness. This helps the eyebrow pencil appearance be less chalky or powdery.

Sweat-Proof Eyeliner

Ever get halfway through your day and realize that your eyeliner has been smudged underneath your eyes for who knows how long? That’s never fun for anyone. If you have thinner lashes or lighter features, using a brown or black eyeliner can make your lashes look fuller. Why miss out on this just because you have a hot yoga session later?

Choose a waterproof and sweat-proof eyeliner that’s designed to set in 30 seconds. This set time ensures that it dries, and stays put for the rest of the day, despite a run on the treadmill or a few laps around the pool.

Waterproof Cheek & Lip Color

Maybe you aren’t comfortable wearing a full face of makeup, but you still want some extra color to accentuate your cheeks and lips. No worries, a waterproof color stick is your best bet for a pop of color that lasts all day.

Throw one of these in your gym bag or purse for pigmented lips and cheeks that last all day. Versatility is a color stick’s best trait, especially for athletes, workout enthusiasts, and exercise instructors. Make sure it has a brush on the other end to blend out the color evenly.
