Gym Bag Beauty Essentials

We all swipe our cards or enter our pins and walk in with a goal in mind however sometimes we can be put off. I mean if I go to the gym straight from work, obviously I'll have a full face of makeup on, don't judge. But therefore I can't get ultra sweaty as my eyes will stream and I will look like a hot mess. Or if I get up at 7 for a session, I won't look pretty, so I'll need something to help me out. Here are my 'Gym Bag Beauty Essentials' that are perfected due to trial and many, many errors...

Wipes
Any wipes. Throw a spare packet of cheap wipes into your bag and you'll thank me later. I can't count all the times where I wish I had a wipe handy to take my makeup off if I'm planning a sweaty session. Think about your pores opening releasing sweat only to be taking in foundation. Spots? No thank you.

Moisturiser
If you've just woken up, you may want a light layer of something on your face to make you feel.. Human. Keep a small travel-sized bottle of moisturiser for you to slap on and wake up your face. Or if you've had a shower after your workout, apply some then to keep your skin hydrated and so you can walk out of the gym looking fresh. Tinted moisturisers are also a sneaky way to get some colour onto your face without caking yourself at the gym.

Mascara
Without mascara, I don't look like myself. If I had to choose only one item of makeup to wear forever, it would be mascara. I do keep a little mascara

Lip Balm
For dry lips. This is an essential for everyone in every bag. My lips go through phases of being dry for a day so keep one handy and avoid those chapped beauties.

Brush & Bobbles
This is common sense really. But I have forgotten a bobble so many times and it really does stop me from getting extra sweaty because I get too hot. I'm sure we've all had that problem...

I feel like I should do a follow up post on workout hair... Love it when I have a rare brain wave. What do you keep in your gym bag?
