Soup du Juor Vlog Hop: How to Run a Marathon Without Looking Like You Ran a Marathon

soupdujour_blogbuttonFor this week’s Soup du Jour, I’m joining Mama Kat’s Vlogging Workshop.  One of the prompts offered this week asked to share your favorite makeup.  Therefore, I took the opportunity to share my stunner runner trade secrets: what makeup I use during races and the importance to look great for photographers at races.

Ironically, while I’m talking about the importance of looking good, I snort right into the camera. Plus, there’s an occasional nose itch.  Yeah, that’s attractive.  Hey, I have allergies, people!   I’m just keeping real.

Real beautiful.

Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful.

Nose scratching, snortingly beautiful.

    I noticed yesterday at Airheads how pretty you looked…even after we worked out! I am one of those who always goes totally barefaced to races or to the gym. I just feel like I sweat like a fiend and I’d have makeup dripping off. But you definitely have it down!

      Awwwww…Aren’t you sweet?! Thank you! Yes, it’s important to look beautiful when you trip and fall on your ass. 😀

    OMG! I’m LOL-ing over the eyebrow thing! The Italian in me unfortunately has blessed me with super brows! But, I ALWAYS wear mascara to every since race, it’s a weird sort of ritual. Hopefully I’m not looking like Tammy Faye Baker 🙂

      I feel you over the eyebrow thing. Myself being Hispanic and Italian, I can grow one hell of a unibrow before waxing! LOL Waterproof is a MUST! Get some!

    I just need a makeover. I never wear makeup, just a dab of lip gloss if I’m lucky, or maybe I should say if the people that are looking at me are lucky. You always look amazing!
