Makeup free gym day look with makeup

Hi ladies!!

I’m sure some of you hate the thought of heading to the gym without makeup. I personally do not like wearing makeup to the gym because I feel it clogs your pores with all the sweating going on, but there are ways to use minimal products that look like you actually have nothing on. It’s not using foundation, but using the right coverage with a tinted moisturizer, along with a great concealer. Most women I know have a huge problem with under eye circles, and concealer is their best friend! Applying a great tinted moisturizer in the morning, such as Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. Once that is applied, take a bit of concealer and dot under the eye, and using a wedge, rub it in until it’s completely flawless. Once that is done, apply a very thin coat of mascara. Only apply one coat. Too much mascara at the gym, is a no no. Take a great clear gloss such as lip fusion ( my favorite ) and apply lightly to lips. Wear your favorite head band ( if you wear them , such as lululemon or Athleta , which make great ones. Looking natural at the gym is a plus, but you can look natural with the right products lightly applied. Below are some of my great products that can be used for the gym for the makeup free look!  



Make Your Days Great! 

Hi ladies!

I know how busy times are, believe me… I have two kids that are constantly running, and it seems that the days are moving by so quickly. I just want to point out that we are no fun if we aren’t making time for ourselves. Please take your fitness and health seriously. Fitness provides us with the energy we need, and healthy food provides us with the fuel we need to keep up that energy.

I have seen so many fitness websites offering 10 minute workouts. Who doesn’t have 10 minutes? I feel the reason they are coming out with these quick workouts is to get more people fit and healthy, and to make them realize that NO, you do not need to spend hours in the gym to get fit!

I personally set time aside everyday to get in an hour of fitness. I realized a long time ago, if I’m not working out, I’m not happy! There are different things that make people happy, and I know for a lot of people, fitness is not one of them. I am here to tell you NOW is the time to get up and get moving!

If you are not a gym person, fine! Find that home workout and set aside some time to complete it. Have you ever wanted to take that yoga class? Take it! What is stopping you? Now more than ever, we need to move our bodies. It’s amazing how much potential each one of us have if we follow through, and be disciplined. It takes discipline and hard work.

Taking 15 minutes a day and going for a brisk walk would make a huge difference. I get asked all the time what I do to stay fit and in shape. It is a personal quest for me each day. I get up, and know exactly where I’m going for my workouts, and what I’m eating. I have to admit, my amazing cook of a husband does pre-plan some of my meals so they are ready.

If you take just one day, and journal your meals and workouts, you will feel on top of the world. I got up this morning and headed to a sweat out class that kicked my butt, and loved every minute of it. I don’t like classes where you go see women working out with makeup. No, those are not classes. I love classes where I’m in the class, looking around and everyone is sweating! That’s a class! Find what works for you, and hit it hard! You can do it!!!
