Cool story. Is this one of those feminist rallies I keep hearing about?
Some dudes (and women) will always find an excuse to judge you. Thx for puttin it out there, though.
I don't see a problem... I will be worried if it gets runny after all the sweat when you hit the gym
I just searched "makeup gym" on twitter and just in the past day there are tons of tweets making fun of and/or judging women who wear makeup at the gym. Many of them, sadly, were written by women.
Like, come ON... in a society that expects women to be attractive before they are taken seriously, and where many of us are AT the gym because of external pressures to be "perfect," you're really gonna judge someone for the way they need to get through the day? That's called "being part of the problem."
Like I said, some people need to take advantage of any opening to put someone else down and feel better about themselves. So sad.
Wear makeup, or don't. Work until you're a sweaty mess, or just get the blood flowing. Whatever you want. Eff the haters.
I can honestly understand both perspectives.
Respect women who go to the gym to work hard (regardless of wearing make up or not). But anyone (male or female) who says they're not showing their body off because they like the attention is probably not being 100% truthful.
But working out in make-up clogs your pores. I rinse mines off before a workout. That's what the locker room is for. To prepare...you wouldn't go to bed in make up just because your going to get up and put it on all over again in the morning. It literally takes 2 min to take off.
It doesn't matter how you work out.You could do it in a red dress and nobody should judge you,because it's your choice.Anyway,people think that working out is easy because they wish to do what we do.We should be proud of our bodies and souls!
Nycc lyking da photis u put up :-)
How old r u if u dnt mind me askin
Seriously ppl actually care about this?
Ppl can be anoying in a gym, but clothing or looks never bothered me.
If you have a great body that you have worked hard to get then you should be proud to show it off. From an ex-resident of Toronto. Where I know the people are all lovely.
I'm with you Steph, I like to feel good with myself, that's why I make effort. Unfortunately nowadays it's more acceptable to completely neglect yourself cause then you're not conforming to media and social pressure apparently. And when you look good you're seen as empty and full of yourself not just as a healthy person as it should be.
Why should you or any girl were makeup in the first place, I'd bet you'd look beautiful without it. I personally like a girl that doesn't wear makeup it's okay every now and then but when she's without makeup, to me it expresses her natural beauty.
Sometimes I've worn makeup at the gym, because its easier for me to go to the gym right after work while I still have some energy to burn and its on the way to my house anyways.
Omg I'm done...
