No one likes looking like they just left the gym, but it's also a hassle to carry your full makeup bag with you. Instead of applyinga full face, just take care of the essentials. We love this Onomie Bright Concealing Elixir for covering up acne scars, hyperpigmentation and dark under eye circles. A little goes a long way and you can leave the gym looking gorgeous and refreshed.

Obviously a gym bag should have your standard beauty products, but if you're going to have an effective workout, you'll also need these:

  • Standard Pad Lock— for your locker. You don't want to worry about your stuff getting stolen while you sweat.
  • A towel— Unless your gym has them available for members to use.
  • Water Bottle— No explaination necessary. Hydration is key.
  • Socks— Sweaty, bare feet inside of tennis shoes is always a bad idea.

And of course, cute workout gear and your favorite sneaks are a must!
