    Am I the only one who thinks it is weird to wear make-up to the gym?

    I recently seen a make-up commercial advertising a mascara that is "sweat proof". It shows a woman going hard at the gym and covered in sweat. Says something like "What? You don't want your make up to work hard?" or something like that. Am I the only one who thinks this is weird? Why would you wear make-up to the gym.. Like if you are exercising, you are going to be sweating. If you are sweating, toxins and junk are coming out of your pores. That is going to mix in with your "sweat proof" make-up and be a disaster for your skin. It will just trap all the junk under it.

    On top of this, aren't you planning on showering or at the very least rinsing your face off after? I am not someone who wear make-up very often. When I do it is usually a little mineral powder to rid shine and some lip color. Maybe that is why this concept is weird to me. lol

    I don't know the first damn thing about make-up, but I like when girls look nice so I'm not going to argue against this trend if it catches on, lol. From what I saw in Japan (at least in the cities) during my year and a half there, the women put on make-up and high heels for damn near everything they do, even going to the corner store. I always appreciated the extra lengths they went to as women to keep up their feminine image, which is something I feel a lot of the ladies back here have begun to lack. I work at a University, and the number of girls I see who are comfortable going to classes all day in sweatpants and a tshirt makes me a bit sad after my experiences abroad, haha. You would see hair that looked like it must have taken HOURS at McD's in Japan/Korea (Korea less so).
    This isn't aimed at you, and I agree that working out with make-up on sounds nasty as heck. I would be lying if i said I wouldn't appreciate the effort though.

    I don't think it's necessarily weird as it probably happens a lot, but for the reasons listed I do think it's pretty damn stupid.

    I have a sister who you'll quite literally never see without make-up. This thread made me think of her, because despite her being my sister I can't remember the last time I saw her without it. I recall she had some kind of meltdown when somebody took a photo of her without make-up. I believe she contained the situation in the end.

    As weird as that sounds, I don't think she's alone in how women may feel very self-conscious about their make-up when they wear it so often. It seems that many wouldn't be caught dead without it, which is why many women might go to a gym wearing it. I do think it's really stupid, and frankly I wouldn't really care as make-up is a mixed bag to me... pun unintended. It can look great on many women but some look better without. When women go overboard with the eyeliner/eyeshadow/mascara it's a real turn-off.

    When I was a teen, I never left the house without it. As I got older, I wore it less and less. I think the last time I wore it on a weekly basis is when I was 21. I think part of the reason women tend to age worse than men has to do with make-up and other skin care routines. They are too harsh on the skin. I will go back to wearing make-up when I am older and want to appear younger. I don't see the point of wearing it every day if you are a younger woman. Nothing against those who do but I just don't see the point.

    As for the gym thing... It is something I never really heard of until I seen the commercial. I been to a few gyms and the women there didn't have any on or they only wore a lip tint. Going full fake lashes and raccoon eyes to sweat for 2 hours in a stinky gym just seems silly.

    I think that makeup in general is silly, but especially in a place like a gym. You don't go to the gym to look attractive, you go to the gym to sweat, to work out, and get yourself in shape. Plus, all the sweat will mess it up and you'll look like more of a mess than not, in my opinion.
