Summer Fitness How-To with Graced by Grit

Summertime makeup is all about a quick, simple and natural look. We’ve partnered with the fitness apparel company, Graced by Grit to create a makeup look that will take you from workout to work in just a few simple steps. Watch the video below to learn how.

1-Minute Workout Look

If you’re rushing to a 6 am barre class, the last thing on your mind is makeup. In 60 seconds or less and only two steps, you can give your complexion a wake-up call and keep it protected from sun damage and future skin aging. Our Director of Artistry, Kerrie Quinby used Colorescience® Skin Mattifying Primer SPF 20 Sunscreen to reduce shine and blur the appearance of fine lines and pores. She then applied our Brush-On Sunscreen SPF 50 to give the skin a soft matte finish and add another layer of protection. The mineral powder formula is water resistant for up to 80 minutes, so you don’t have to worry about it budging during your workout. Unlike chemical sunscreen formulas that can trap heat in the skin this mineral sunscreen allows skin to breathe.

3-Minute Work Look

No one wants to have to run home after an early morning workout to get ready before work. Kerrie showed us that you don’t have to wash your face and start over after your sweat session. Simply dab the skin with a towel to remove any moisture and now you’re ready to layer on your “work look.”

Colorescience Tint Du Soleil™ SPF 30 UV Protective Foundation Sunscreen has a sheer, creamy formula for that no-makeup, makeup look that’s so coveted for summer. As an added boost, it includes antioxidants and vitamins to actually nourish and help improve the overall health of the skin. No contour or strobing needed here - swipe on a little Colorescience Pressed Mineral Illiuminator in Morning Glow to add instant healthy-looking radiance and luminosity. To make the eyes pop, while still looking fresh and natural, Kerrie added a few swipes of Colorescience Mascara. This clump-free formula uses rich black pigments that resist smudging and smearing so you don’t have to worry about having raccoon-eyes by the end of the day. The last step is Colorescience Lip Shine SPF 35 Sunscreen. It adds a pretty pop of color and shine while also shielding your lips from sun damage.
