Whether you get your workout in at your spin class, on your yoga mat or at the barre, one thing is for certain: there is bound to be at least one dewy-skinned woman in your class that makes a fresh face (and working out) seem so glamorous, leaving you more envious than focused or relaxed. Luckily, it seems like we weren’t the only ones fed up with a red and splotchy workout face, as makeup powerhouse Tarte rolls out their new Athleisure Skincare line that’s designed to take you from breakfast, work then Pilates and a late-night show right after without fading or looking like you’re wearing a drop of makeup.
While the laidback packaging doesn’t scream it out at you (though it should), this line delivers much more than your usual no-makeup-look range that many brands have introduced throughout the years. In tune with the currently trending athleisure vibe, the line—aside from it being totally vegan and longwearing—is designed to be worn from day in to day out without skimping your skin of its much-needed care. The proof is in the ingredients, formulated with active vitamins and water to keep your complexion comfortable and hydrated all day (and workout) long. The best part about this line? It goes so much further than just your average tinted moisturizer—some are even surprising additions—and they’re all sweatproof.
The first product in the line is the Lifted Sweatproof Mascara ($21) that truly lives up to its name. After even the most intense workout, there was zero smudging, flaking or running to be found and my lashes were as—you guessed it—just as lifted, separated and tinted as when I first applied the mascara.
The most surprising product of the lineup is probably the Pearly Girl Vegan Teeth Whitening Pen ($22), a whitening pen that makes whitening your smile easier than ever. You just brush it onto your teeth a few times a day and watch as the calcium-based formula goes to work on making your pearly whites prettier.
First comes the blotting papers, then comes the talc-free finishing powder to ensure shine doesn’t come back in the Blot Party On-the-Go Mattifiers ($34) that has become a personal gym bag (and date night clutch) staple.
The Tarteguard 20 Tinted Moisturizer ($36), which I’ve personally been wearing for the last week since I received it, delivers sheer-to-light coverage and provides just the right amount of coverage to blur imperfections without caking on too much product (all while delivering much-needed sun protection to keep your skin looking young).
Boasting a formula that’s made up of 70 percent water, Brighter Days Highlighting Moisturizer ($32) works overtime to give you that envied post-workout glow in a pinch. Even better, since it’s sweat-resistant, you can apply it pre-workout and leave everyone wondering how you do it.
So whether you pick up the whole line or just your favorite one of the bunch, each purchase practically comes with a guarantee you’ll love it—because the only thing better than looking good while you’re sweating is looking like it’s all natural.
