Sure, Jessica Biel looks great even without makeup, but most of us like having a little help before we leave the house. But what to do at the gym? You want to look good, especially if there are cute guys working out nearby, but no one likes their mascara running into their eyes while they’re jogging. We want to know what you do. Tell us: Do you wear makeup to the gym? If so, what do you wear?

Don’t be ridiculous!

I love Jessica- a natural- and absolutly inspiring with her discipline.
I’m not a makeup girl at the gym. I go to a all women’s gym. No need to impress!
If i did it for the boys-then i suppose i’d be there for all the wrong reasons:)

I do wear a little makeup, but not too much. My mascara doesn’t run because I have a really good formula–Yes to Volume, No to Clumps by Borjois Paris. I wear some lip balm, mascara, and some light concealer. And I think that Jessica Biel IS wearing a little makeup in this picture. Not full-on makeup, but definitely some.

Just a little bit of waterproof mascara can go a long way when you want to look a little bit nice at the gym. Foundation and powder rubs off on your towel but a little bit of mascara usually won’t run down your face even during a tough Spinning class. Who ever said that sweat or glow on a woman wasn’t sexy?

Wearing a little bit of lip gloss while working out may help you feel a little bit “done up” for those male counterparts. My recommendation, Labello’s “Care Gloss & Shine”. It’s not sticky and adds a nice shine to any lips! And it’s very affordable.

I think it is absolutely ridiculous to wear make-up to the gym. When I’m in the gym, I’m there to work out and not to impress anyone. Furthermore, if you go to the gym to impress guys, you should save the memebership fees and QUIT going because MOST MEN GO TO THE GYM TO WORK OUT AND ARE NOT IMPRESSED WITH STUPID WOMEN WHO GO TO BE SEEN!!!!

It’s usually already on because I go afterwork. Plus, I go to an all-female gym, and I’m definitely not there to impress them.

Katy on

No, I don’t wear makeup to the gym. I’m there to be healthy, not pick up a man. I think its ridiculous when I see girls in there with full hair and makeup walking around the machines.

Jessica is a natural beauty!! No make up for me it smears to much but i do wear lip gloss to keep my full lips moist.
