Your 5 Minute Locker Room Makeup Routine

December 02, 2018 2 min read

For those of us who frequent the gym each morning, we often find ourselves using the locker room to get ready for the day.

If you're like us, we hate to spend any longer than we need to in that steamy, over-crowded bathroom so we put together a quick and easy locker room beauty routine to cut your getting-ready-time in half and also help save you some gym bag space as well. 

Your 5 Minute Locker Room Makeup Routine

Step 1: Spot Check And Blur With Concealer

Skip the foundation and head straight for the concealer. Foundation is very hard to apply if you're still cooling down from an intense workout. Instead, use the concealer to cover up blemishes, camouflage sleepy eyes, and blur redness and discoloration.

Step 2: Dab A Little Color On Your Lip & Cheek 

Lip Cheek

Simplify your routine with our favorite multi-tasking product. Dab a Lip Cheek rouge onto your lips for a natural wash of color and use the remainder of the product on the apples of your cheeks for a subtle flush.

Step 3: Swipe A Little Bronzer On Your Cheeks

Bronzer

Whether it's Winter or Summer, bronzer will always be your bff. Add a light layer across your face, focusing on your cheekbones and jawline for a slimming, defined-finish.

Need some color on your lids? Skip the big shadow palette and swipe on a little bronzer.

Step 4: Soak Up The Sweat With Shine Control Powder

Step 4 is reserved for Shine Control Powder, and we think you know why.

Yes, it's kind of gross, but if you're getting ready for work at the gym, you will most likely be sweating long after your shower. This is because your body is still trying to cool down after your workout and that steamy locker room only seems to make things worse, amirite?

If you've continued to sweat during your makeup application, you should finish up with a high-quality shine control powder. Use an applicator to dab the powder across your T-Zone to help soak up the excess moisture without smudging your makeup.

Step 5: Finish Up With Mascara

Swipe on a coat of mascara and you're good to go.

Invest In The Right Beauty Products

If you spend most of your mornings getting ready for work at the gym, then you should really invest in beauty products that will work with your locker room lifestyle. 

Look for products that are:

  • Compact 
  • Portable
  • Multi-use / dual-purpose

For example, shop for compact products like this Nar's single-shade eyeshadow instead of packing giant eyeshadow palettes; swap your 18-piece Sephora brush set for a single, multi-purpose brush and look for multi-use products like this Glossier moisturizer that's also a primer, or a cream blush that's also a lip tint.

The Subtl Beauty Stack fits in your gym bag

The Subtl Beauty Makeup Stack is all the above, wrapped up in a single, customizable stack. It's the perfect gym makeup kit. It's compact and super-portable and contains multi-use products like our popular Lip Cheek rouge.
