If you're anyone like me, you always go to the gym right before you have to be somewhere else. This summer, I nanny for a family all day, and so instead of waiting until after the day (when I'll be tired), I like to wake up and get my morning started by going to the gym. Since it's summer, I don't put a ton of make up on, but there are a few items I like to keep with me. Here are my Top 5 Gym Bag Beauty Essentials that will be perfect for any touch up or refresh.
1. Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Wipes
These work just like a basic face wash only are in the form of wipes which make them very convenient and portable. I usually use these after my work out in the mornings to get any dirt off my face. They can also be used before a workout too. These came in handy during track season when I wanted to whip off my makeup.
2. Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Concealer
Most of the time after the gym, I don't even mess with a full cover of foundation. I like to stick to something simple and this concealer is perfect for covering any blemishes showing. A beauty blender comes in handy for rubbing it in on your face. It will give a natural look which is perfect for any summer day!
3. Batiste Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo always comes in handy, especially after the gym. My hair can get sweaty and greasy and most of the time I don't have time to take a shower afterwards. This dry shampoo will refresh your hair right away and it also smells great! You can even get this dry shampoo tinted your hair color, for extra color of course. You can check out where I featured that dry shampoo here.
4. Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
Mascara is an easy way to make you look nice, even when you don't have a lot of make up on. I usually just put it on with my concealer and go! This mascara in particular I love because it makes my lashes look super long. It looks effortless and natural.
5. Lady Speed Stick Deodorant
This is an obvious one, but deodorant is essential for your gym bag. I don't know how many times I have forgotten to put it on in the morning before I go to the gym, but it's always helpful to know I have it with me and in case I feel I need to reapply.
Those are my top 5 gym bag essentials!! If you have any essentials, let me know in the comments below.
