That Selfie-Worthy Workout Look IRL

By Rebecca Gillam

Gym life isn't all flat whites and French bulldogs like in your Insta feed. True: Its the one for inspirational quotes and abspiration, but thats not all real. Its not that celebs dont heat up in a hardcore HIIT class like the rest of us – sweaty selfies just arent a vibe. Sweatshirts with 'tude, yeah. Actual sweat? Not so much.

Remember: No one can look perfect all the time… And why should you have to?

  

Obvs the dream would be feeling comfortable and confident going 100% bare-faced, especially when working out. But #IWokeUpLikeThis ain’t so easy when you add breakouts and eye bags — and we shouldn’t feel bad for needing a little confidence boost. 

That’s why the Primark HQ people have been working on something massive: a new 11-piece beauty collection designed just for the gym. Performance Hydration Recovery (a.k.a PHr) isn’t just sweat-, run- and smudge-proof – it actually takes care of your skin post-workout too.

We know – right? You're welcome. Now you can feel smug sharing Insta-Stories from the treadmill all you want. 


Basically, your skin's all wrapped up: apply the Lightweight BB Cream sparingly, adding the Long-Lasting Concealer to blemishes and below the eyes, to create a flawless base without clogging your pores. Then use the tips of your middle fingers to pat the Cheek & Lip Tint below your cheekbones and onto the apples for a dewy glow, and sweep the Brightening Highlighter Stick above the cheekbones and under the eyebrow arches.

 

Define the eyes with the Waterproof Liner (complete with handy sharpener) and Mascara, for definition that stays through even the most intense sessions. Banish blotches and calm skin with the Hydrating Cooling Stick, Setting Spray and Recovery Gel, and blot on the Sweat-Resistant Powder to keep it all in check.

Lastly, the Nourishing Lipstick — in nude, pink or deep red — finishes off the luminous look with a pop of color.

 

Bonus: Besides feelin' fly, you can head right out for brunch afterwards  — just a sweep of powder and a quick lipstick refresh and you’re outta there.

 

#IWorkOutLikeThis… Let’s make it happen peeps.
