Getting drenched in sweat may be a sign of a good workout, but the chance of that happening with a full face of makeup is slim to never. We go to the gym to be healthy and get our glisten on — not to look cute.

It could make any girl feel a little frumpy in comparison.
While we would never advocate layering on foundation and bronzer while you climb on the StairMaster (your poor pores!), we do think there’s a clever and affordable way to achieve cool, sleek, sweat-ready style while you get your fitness on.
