Going to the gym does not have to mean a trip home before going out! How can we find a way to go into the gym and leave looking FAB? Team Manna has discovered some secret tips and tricks to help you #LookGoodFeelGood before, during and after your workout.
Start Fresh & Clean: In order to prevent breakouts, clean your face before working out or adding your fitness friendly makeup. If you workout with makeup, keep it to a minimal as it can clog pores during your normal perspiration process. Cleanse face with a blemish clearing towelette, like Yes to Tomatoes ($8; yesto.com).
Show up in Style: Remember saying, “If I buy these new cute workout clothes it will motivate me to workout more”? Well now is your chance to show off those fun prints, bright colors, and cute fitness sayings!
Triple elastic your ponytail: If you decide to wear a ponytail instead of a bun or braid, try this simple trick to keep the hair off your neck. Use three elastics stacked up against each other, which will create a larger space between your ponytail and your head, keeping the lengths of your hair off your neck and out of sweat’s way.
Gym Face Makeup: As makeup isn’t recommended for your workout, we found some key products that will help you look good without leaving you with a runny mess! No more raccoon eyes from your post-workout Mascara! Use Manna Kadar’s Eye Candy Priming Shadow Stick in Sugar to conceal any spots or dark circles ($24; Shop here). Followed by your favorite light coverage tinted moisturizer, we love working out with CliniqueFIT Broad Spectrum ($29.50; Shop here). Complete your look with the Flutter Mascara, your new favorite Workout Friendly Mascara ($29; Shop here).
Hydrate your lips: Apply your favorite LipLocked Priming Gloss Stain before your workout. We love the hydrating formula that will keep your lips nourish throughout your workout.

Eliminate Post Workout Shine: If you have plans after the gym or you’re just making a Whole Foods run, eliminate your post-workout shine in one step. Simply touch up with Manna Kadar Cosmetics High Definition Pressed Perfecting Powder ($29, Shop here).
Leave in Style: Most gyms have facilities to clean up, touch up and change so you could go about your day. Bring a change of clothes that will dress up your look dependent on where you are headed to next. Dark jeans, a white blouse and flats should do the trick!
