Ready to sweat? These cosmetics will go the distance without clogging your pores and messing up your beauty routine.
Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation (R490)
It’s the ultimate foundation for a flawless-looking complexion that won’t quit. This waterproof, silicone and paraben-free formula diffuses light to blur flaws for beautifully perfected skin. It also mattifies and absorbs oil to reduce the appearance of shine. Available online at Foschini.
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick SPF15 in Plum (R215)
Your lips need SPF year-round, just like the rest of your skin. This tint not only softens and moisturises, it contains the legendary Eight Hour scent and provides antioxidant protection with vitamin E. Available online at Elizabeth Arden.
Coverderm Camouflage Concealer (R320)
A vitamin E-enriched formula that keeps skin hydrated, this concealer has a high amount of essential fatty acids (omegas 3 and 6) – the stuff responsible for younger-looking, healthier complexions. It won’t block your pores when camouflaging dark shadows, acne, age spots or fine lines and you can use it on your body too! Available online at Dis-Chem.
Maybelline Brow Precise Fiber Filler Mascara (R110)
Give your brows a natural look with this mascara, which contains a fibre-infused gel formula that gives a three- dimensional effect and fuller-looking brows. Bonus: it won’t transfer onto your towel when you wipe the sweat away during your final HIIT set.

Ginkgo biloba, caffeine, soy peptide and candeia are some of the ingredients that are packed into this tube to help tone, reduce puffiness and stimulate collagen growth around your eyes.
Team Dr Joseph Gentle Rose Toner (R365)
Calms any irritation or redness that may occur – especially after exercise. The rose oil is very soothing for skin.
