my skin is still not blemish free so i like to wear foundation to even my complexion. i was wondering if i could wear mineral makeup in the pool? i don't find that it sweats off my skin when i work out but i wasn't sure if i'd have bad results in the pool.

does anyone keep their makeup on in the poo? i wear meow now by the way..

    I use colorescience mineral makeup, it is fine in the pool or beach and has 30spf, it is listed as waterproof, just blot your face with the towel don't rub and you are good to go.

    I can't imagine any makeup of any type staying on in the pool, but when I'm in the pool, I'm really swimming, not just bobbing around. If you just want to bob and get the occasionally splash in the face, mineral makeup may hold up for a while. Just blot, don't rub.

    thanks girls...i'll be "bobbing" i mean i don't mind getting all wet but i really can't swim so i won't be doing laps or anything. we'll also be in a hot tub. i just wanted to make sure i didn't have a runny mess on my hand. the thing i like about my makeup is even when i sweat at the gym a little comes off on the towel but nothing heavy....it's like it absorbs in my skin. oh well, i guess i'll know tonight ;-)

    Not if you still want to be wearing mineral makeup when you get out of the pool. But that's JMO.

    You may not believe it but it is true, waterproof and sweatproof. I swam and snorkled last weekend, stayed on for hours. The same company makes mineral sunblock, looks just like the makeup, it's recommended by the american cancer society. Check out the web site if you don't believe me www.colorescience.com you can only buy it in salons or from plastic surgeons. I would never tell such a lie, makeup is serious business(LOL) to me I have big dark circles under my eyes, I can't go anywhere without makeup.
