I recently saw this article on Yahoo! Style about a beauty blogger known as “Huda Beauty.” Her Instagram and blog are booming, the article really paints a picture of her lifestyle. What I picked up most is how real this woman is (besides the fact that she is stunning), you feel like you could have a coffee with her. The article also notes this as what drives her success: personality. At the end of the article, she comments that she does wear makeup to the gym.
Why was this a headline? Why did this make it to the Yahoo! homepage? If putting on a little brow gel or eyeliner makes you feel better, why not wear it to the gym? I agree that maybe wearing a full face with falsies might be overkill, but feeling confident can come from all places. I also watched a video once where Cassey Ho (aka Blogilates) mentioned she wears a little makeup when she works out. You might be working out after work, which means you will most likely have a little something on.
There are obvious reasons why you shouldn’t wear makeup to the gym. Nobody wants to have clogged pores, but a little bit never hurt anyone.
Until next time, plant nothing but love.
