Fact: the sport-luxe trend has made it perfectly acceptable for us to live in our leggings all weekend. Whether we have any intention of exercise or not is refreshingly irrelevant. This lifestyle-led look does require a beauty rethink: how do you look your au-naturel best while power walking around the park without a trace of effort? Try working these 7 grooming greats into your off-duty or workout look. Natural is nice but as your nan always said, you never know who you’re going to bump into…

1

THE WAKE-UP CALL

Sure, boot camp always seems like a good idea the night before—right up until that pre-dawn alarm jolts you awake. A quick coat of Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara delivers an instant wake-up call and will have you ready for anything. The waterproof formula helps open up and define eyes and won’t budge—even after your ninth round of burpees.

THE HEALTHY-HAIR HACK

Here’s a multi-tasking move we picked up at the gym recently: a fellow spin student coated her hair in a hydrating treatment before class like it was standard warm-up procedure. We now work 3More Inches Pre-Wash Treatment into a braid pre-workout and emerge post-shower with healthier, shinier hair. Result.

SKINSURANCE

Whether you’re hitting the Bondi-to-Bronte walk with the gals or aiming for a convincingly off-duty skin finish, sometimes a light veil of camouflage can give you that little bit of quiet confidence to face the world (and a potential chance sighting of your ex). Try Mecca Cosmetica In A Great Light SPF 30.

FROM BARRE TO BRUNCH

Whether you’ve actually trained—or just dressed for the part—there’s a good chance that you won’t change out of your activewear for the better part of Saturday. No need to bounce into brunch completely bare-faced and scare your friends; keep it pretty with a little of the new Nars Sheer Pop Multiple on cheekbones and lips.

GET SKIN FIT FAST

Yes, yes…we know that you know that the super highway to healthy, glowing, clear skin is H20 and plenty of it. But we could all do with a little reminding. Since discovering BKR, we’ve been far more diligent about maintaining our 3-litres-a-day hydration habits with the best-looking water bottle we’ve ever seen. [Now, onto other NY resolutions…]

THE BARE MINIMUM

Ok so you’re not the type to fuss around with tinted moisturiser or mascara before 7am. If you do nothing else, brush on a little Nars Brow Clear Gel to help make you look and feel put together during Pilates.

THE YOGA BUDDY

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater is one of our favourite go-tos for instant skin refreshment. After 50 minutes of yin yoga it’s the perfect pick-me-up that instantly hydrates, tones and rebalances skin. We keep it in the fridge in the office.
