Summer is here, especially if you live in one of the southern states as I currently do.  With record temps across the nation, the days of the sweet summer “glow” seem to have been traded for all out sweaty struggles.  No joke, I’m currently unable to wear certain fabrics for the next couple of months.  Denim…no way! It’s just almost impossible to stay dry.

When I was first introduced to sweat cosmetics I thought I would love this product for my workouts.  When I was playing soccer it wasn’t cool to wear make-up but if you missed the World Cup last summer, these fierce athletes are not only ballers but they look incredible while doing it.  So now I’m totally inspired to spruce up my workout look.  It wasn’t until I recently relocated to the south that Sweat Cosmetics has become a staple in my make-up routine every day.

As I mentioned, its HOT here.  I use their powder stick in 200 every day.  The mineral powder is breathable, water-resistant and has SPF 30.  I use it as a sunscreen over my foundation for days when I have on more make up but I also use it alone when I’m running errands or want a fresh summer look that’s less “made up.”

Let’s talk stats…it’s cruelty free, it’s hypoallergenic, its dermatologist approved, it’s free of oil, OH and its refillable meaning you’ll be tossing less clunky powder cases into the world.  It really is the total package.

So who are the geniuses behind the product? Well they’re former athletes of course.  That’s why they get it.  Founded by 5 Olympians and professional athletes, Sweat Cosmetics’ team more closely resembles a roster.  And I was lucky enough to get to chat with them about their product, soccer and of course GAME DAY.

Just an FYI, I swap back and forth between 100 and 200 depending on what time of year it is   and its so easy to swap them out given the design of the brush – so you only need one!  But trust me, this is a must for your game day bag.  The days of lugging powder, foundation and sunscreen are over.  This is all you need for your little game day bag, your gym bag and your most of all, your make up bag.  You can follow Sweat Cosmetics on social @sweatcosmetics.
