The Products To Check Out If You Like Wearing Makeup To The Gym | Clozette

Normally, we would advise against wearing any makeup to the gym. As we all know, exercise makes us sweat and, in the process, pores widen to expel the toxins from the body. The last thing our skin needs is a dense layer of product that can potentially clog those pores and cause problems later on. That being said, sometimes, we just need the added mood boost of a freshly made-up face to keep us going throughout the day. It’s quite the same thing with putting on cute gym wear to psych you up for your workout — a placebo effect if you will. Below are our tips and product recommendations to get your gym face on.

Base: bareMinerals Complexion Rescue™ Tinted Moisturiser – Hydrating Gel Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 + bareMinerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue™ Tinted Moisturiser – Hydrating Gel Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30, SGD43.42/~USD32 (; bareMinerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder, SGD32.56/~USD24 (

Three things you get from the tinted moisturiser: hydration, light colour-correction and sun protection. When it comes to wearing base makeup to the gym, it’s best to go in with a light hand. The bareMinerals’ award-winning tinted moisturiser promises natural coverage while its clean formula makes it friendlier for your pores. Keep unwanted shine at bay with a light dusting of the talc-free Mineral Veil Finishing Powder.

Spot Correct: Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage

Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage, SGD60/~USD44.22 (

A favourite of beauty editors and makeup artists for a reason, the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer promises full, long-wearing coverage for up to eight hours. Capable of withstanding oil and sweat, it's great for spot-correcting any problem areas.

Brows: Glossier Boy Brow

Step one to pulling your look together under five minutes is doing your brows. Glossier’s lauded Boy Brow gives you fuller, natural-looking brows with its creamy wax formula. Simply brush up and outwards with the wand to keep your brows on fleek.

Lips: RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek Tint

Step two to pulling your look together under five minutes is swiping on some lip colour. Opt for a fresh and hydrating lip tint such as RMS Beauty’s Lip2Cheek Tint, which is formulated with organic and mineral ingredients to give your lips some lovin’. You can also use it on your cheeks, although we recommend you skip this step as working out already gives you a natural flush.

Lashes: Covergirl Lash Blast Volume Mascara

Covergirl Lash Blast Volume Mascara, SGD9.50/~USD7, selected drugstores

Swap heavy eye makeup for a waterproof mascara such as drugstore favourite, Covergirl’s Lash Blast Volume Mascara. This product offers a more defined curl and a bit of volume to brighten up your peepers effortlessly.

Setting Spray: Urban Decay – All Nighter Long Lasting Setting Spray

For added longevity, set everything in place with the cult favourite Urban Decay – All Nighter Long Lasting Setting Spray. Specifically formulated for hot and humid situations, this product promises to keep your skin cool enough for your makeup to stay in place.



Pampering yourself after a long period of hectic timelines, stress and overwork is absolutely essential. Even if you diligently keep to a skincare routine at home, there’s nothing like a professionally done facial to make you feel brand new. Here are some interesting and effective ones to try out if you’re in the market for something new.

Glass Skin Treatment

Glass Skin Treatment

The idea of perfect skin has taken the world by storm, thanks to the growing influence of the Korean entertainment industry, with their flawless celebrities and pop stars. ONLY Aesthetics has got you covered with a laser treatment that promises almost instant results! The Glass Skin treatment is best for individuals who have sun damaged or acne-prone skin because it is able to treat various skin concerns without any downtime. Who wouldn’t want smooth, poreless skin that looks illuminated from within?

Astronaut Facial

Astronaut Facial

Breathe life back into your skin with the revolutionary Astronaut Facial at Caring Skin that ensures you go home with skin that is calmer, brighter and dewier. Taking place under a clear dome, this zero-extraction therapy combines 100% pure oxygen with effective plant-based products, as well as a relaxing lymphatic drainage massage to stimulate the skin’s natural healing functions and boost collagen production.

Geisha Organic

Geisha Organic

This facial features a very special element — nightingale faeces. Weird, we know, but don’t let this deter you from trying out the Geisha Organic Facial at Ikeda Spa Prestige for an experience that dates back to the 17th century, promising brighter and blemish-free skin. The Japanese bush warblers that are bred to provide the raw ingredient are reared in farms and fed a diet of organic berries. It’s really not as gross as it sounds, and we would never lead you astray.

Golki Therapy

Based on Wolff’s law that posits using shock and pressure will stimulate calcium absorption and, ultimately, boost bone density, Yakson Singapore brings us Small Face Care. It is designed to remodel your face and rework your jawline through a series of deep massages. The treatment features an hour-long back, arm and décolletage massage and a 15-minute ‘facial golki’ that promises to make you look as dainty as your favourite Korean star.

Jade Gua Sha 

Jade Gua Sha

Tools made from pretty stones such as rose quartz, jade and obsidian have been in the spotlight lately, supposedly able to stimulate the lymph nodes on your face and improve blood circulation. However, these tools have been in use for many years, expertly wielded by therapists trained in the art of facial gua sha. Available at Geranium, the Multivitamin Lifting Treatment features a facial gua sha with a multivitamin treatment massage for a lifting and brightening effect.
