This race day essential again may not be for everyone but it is a must for me. Make-up. I know, I know, who is thinking about make-up when preparing to run 13.1 miles? Me! I like to put my best face forward and I wear a little make-up to ensure that I am always camera ready. I’m not talking about wearing full-on false eye-lashes(although if that is what you want to do by all means do so) but I do mean a bit of coverage.
For me, wearing make-up serves two purposes. One, my face is picture perfect and two I protect my skin. I use two types of make-up for my foundation - on the places on my skin where I have blemishes or hyper-pigmentation(dark spots) I use a full coverage foundation called Cover FX.
This stuff is AMAZING! When I wear it you cannot tell that I have scarring at all. I only dot it on my trouble areas and the way the foundation is made, it is a perfect match. There are three different shades to apply.I use the lightest as a concealer and layer it with the darker colors to reach my natural skin tone. A primer, application brush and powder was included in my kit. I only use the powder on evenings out I know I am going to have that sweaty glistening glow race day so I don’t bother with powder when I run.
So there you have it, day 2 I’m sharing with you my “vanity” race day essentials. Just because a girl is sporty doesn’t mean she can’t look good too!

Disclosure: I received the Cover FX for review but this did not influence my opinion of the product if I didn’t like something about it you can be sure I’d tell ya!
