Over at fashion week, it's not just the latest fashion trends that are forecasted. Backstage beauty plays a huuuge part in the upcoming seasons makeup and hair trends - and it turns out a biggun' for SS16 is 'gym skin.'
But don't worry - 'cos there's absolute zero workout that you need to do to get gym skin. It's basically referring to that clean, fresh, not-sweaty-but-sheeny post gym skin people have, but mimicked with makeup. The new 'no makeup makeup' if you will.
Similarly to strobing, highlighting does play a part in gym skin - but instead of concentrating solely on getting a super glowy skin, gym skin is more about leaving a clean 'sheen' to the skin.
For gym skin - you want to keep the rest of your makeup super natural. We love MAC's Face and Body Foundation, 'cos it leaves skin with a super sheer coverage without being shiny. Or, ditch the foundation completely and just wear MAC's Strobe Cream which leaves skin seriously illuminated but fresh.
Ditch the powder blushers and bronzers too - we love Daniel Sandler's Watercolour Blush for an added stain of colour without mattifying your skin's natural texture.
