Don't Sweat It

Makeup for Active Gals
By Elle Duncombe-Mills

NEARLY EVERY ATHLETIC WOMAN knows the problem: Your makeup looks fab right after you apply it, but a high-intensity workout leaves you looking like the Joker in “Batman.”

Five former professional and collegiate female soccer players—including a local mom of two—have decided to fix your face with their new product line aptly called Sweat Cosmetics.

“The idea was to create a cosmetic and sun-care product that we could wear while we were playing,” says Lindsay Tarpley of Madison, recalling the smudging, stinging mess her former makeup would become. The two-time Olympic gold medalist in soccer—Athens in 2004 and Beijing in 2008—says the Sweat line offers the durability and convenience that active women need, and it provides excellent skin care with ingredients like Vitamin E and all-natural sunscreen. It’s also cruelty free and uses all natural ingredients.

The line launched in June 2015 with mineral foundation and translucent mineral powder, and has since expanded to include illuminator, bronzer and cleansing towelettes.

“It has changed my daily routine, and simplified it,” Tarpley says. To that we say: You go, girls!
