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?

Only becasue I am coming straight from the office. Otherwise I head there au natural- I am sweating it off anyway, why would I waste time (and make-up) jsut to wash it off?? That is just silly.

Take it easy. I don’t think most of these women go to the gym for the sole purpose of being seen by men. For me, it’s an added incentive that while I’m getting my workout I get to check out guys at the same time. There’s no harm in admitting that. However, a full face of make up and nonstop staring at yourself in the mirror makes me gag. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look good at the gym. Afterall, that’s why we’re there, right?

Hell No! You’re going to the Gym to get in shape not to impress anyone. I mean seriously, come on now, I say, why waste the make-up when your going to sweat it off anyway!! Also, are you really going to go to the gym wearing sweats or work-out style clothes with full face of make-up, working out gives your skin a great glow because of the great endorphin boost, think about that!!

I wear make up to the gym because I have a birthmark on my face. I wear it everywhere except when I’m sleeping. Not everyone wearing make-up at the gym is doing it to impress men.

Nope, I swim 3-4 days a week at my gym, and I work out for about 15 minutes beforehand. I definitely don’t wear make-up to the gym. Although, my boyfriend did take a picture of me getting out of the pool and my body looked pretty rockin, my face was NOT cute (WISH I was wearing make-up)!! Pale from winter. blah.

C on

I always wore make-up to the gym because I was going straight from work. Now that my gym is in my house, no.

Sandra on

I need to go with a clean makeup free face because I am very prone to breakouts.

Z on

When i go from work – the make-up is on, but comes off throughout the workout on my shirt/towel/etc…if i’m working out on a day off or Saturday morning, then i really don’t care what i look like. Roll out of bed and head to the gym, bed head and all!

Jenny on

Make up to work out? Thats just wrong!!

Sheila on

don’t be ridiculous.. Girls who have make-up look foolish.
