Allure Magazine recently reported that Jessica Ennis, a track and field star who will be competing in this year's London 2012 Olympics, wears a full face of makeup when she competes - tube mascara, liquid eyeliner and all!

"I definitely think if I feel I look good, it makes me feel more confident," she told The Daily Mail. If you're in the same boat, you might be wondering about the best types of products to use while you're working your butt off during a grueling workout.

First, Allure recommends using a gentle moisturizer to act as a barrier that will prevent your skin from stinging from the sweat. Next, use a water-based foundation or mineral makeup to even out your complexion - oilier formulas can clog pores.

Finally, use blinc's tube mascara and liquid eyeliners to amp up your eyes and give you that last shot of confidence. Not only will they enhance your best features, but they won't run or smudge - no matter how much sweat's dripping down your face!
