Okay, here it is! Tried and tested beauty on the tennis court, what stays best under tough conditions? I have been wanting to post this information for quite a bit, so here goes, this is what I wear on the court~

 LIPS~ I use Revive Intensite Volumizing Lip Serum. This serum is to be applied in the morning (after brushing and flossing). It is a necessity to keep lips full, lush and wrinkle free, YES, wrinkle free. It is a bit costly, but the .08 oz. lasts a long time, and the pen holder design is quite handy and specific. It DOES plump lips and erases 10 years immediately, without 'bee sting' lips.

If you want a quick fix without the face lift, try this product.

You can find Revive at Neiman MarcusBlue Mercury, and Revive skincare website, of course.

Next, I wear a light lip color by Clarins, the Joli Rouge lipstick~
Clarins Joli Rouge Clarins Joli Rouge
Intense, shiny, long-wearing mineral lip colour that deeply moisturizes, plumps, smoothes and beautifully shapes lips with creamy colour and silky, smooth shine. With a unique gel-souffle texture, the more you wear it, the more moisturized your lips become.

For a soft line with added color, I like nude shade, this lip liner stops feathering and lasts!~

This easy-to-apply lip liner will be offered in 8 new permanent shades.

 For the FACE~

If playing tennis indoors, I like to give myself a mini beauty treatment by applying face serum, here is a top favorite from Jurlique, soft, absorbing, beautiful!~

Sunscreen! This Neutrogena formula when applied 20 minutes before an outdoor match, absorbs, does not sting the eyes (mine are quite sensitive being blue), and lasts for a good hour, then I recommend re-applying as needed~

I like to add a neutral shade of blush so I have some color in my cheeks with an added touch to the forehead, so I heartily recommend~

Clinique Blushwear Cream Stick Clinique Blushwear Cream Stick
Convenient cream-to-powder blush stick glides on colour for a natural, all-day glow. Blends easily with fingertips to desired intensity and coverage. TIP: Use bronze shade Glow Blush to give skin an allover glow. Non-drying.

EYES !!! !!!
When pressed for time, I apply eyeliner first.  Only waterproof, as a tough match will melt away any color fast!

My favorite waterproof beauty products for the eyes are from Makeup For Ever Aqua Eyes. You can best find this brand when shopping at Sephora.

For my blue eyes and to match up with a soft, neutral face palette, I prefer an eye pencil in a metallic grey shade, silvery grey, it gives my eyes definition without being too harsh, especially if playing at 8 AM, who needs black eyeliner so early in the morning??

A top favorite waterproof mascara of mine is Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Waterproof in 01 Extreme Black. This mascara lasts during a match, plus afterwards in the shower and beyond. I love this mascara!

Extreme volume. Even when wet. Lashes seem to multiply, magnify and grow. Three different high-volume fibers act like lash extensions, creating audacious lash effects-that last through all wet conditions. All weather. All waterproof.

Before, after the match and beyond, nothing like bright eyes to make your day complete! I have tried so many moisturizers for the eyes, you have to test them to see what you are most compatible with, and the Rhoto Cooling drops at Walgreens works for me.  Give it a few minutes to do its brightening, and then your eyes are sparkling**

And there you have it, tennis aficionados, a simple beauty regime for the tennis court, it takes a quick 5 minutes to apply this beauty, then you have your best game face, bring it on!
