I don't mean to play devil's advocate but I would advise not wearing during exercise. I made this mistake a while ago by running right after work, from my office, and not washing my face before hand. Needless to say I had a terrible breakout--- the worst I have had in five years--- and I am still trying to clean my skin up.

Now before I go to the gym or running I make sure to wash the make up off my face. Honestly, I think that it is imperative that you do so and really during athletics it is kind of a faux pas to wear make up, even if you have blemishes. But in sports like soccer, in which you may be running for a couple of hours, all that sweat will mix with the makeup on your face and will be very hard to get off afterward. It is not worth and also, during a sporting event, people are going to be so wrapped up in the competition that nobody is going to be looking at your face.

I play soccer, and although I'm male, I don't recommend wearing make-up at all when exercising. If sweat is blocked by something, it will result in clogged pores. You need to let the sweat flow freely. I know several people say sweating causes more breakouts, but I have had the opposite reaction. The more I sweat, the fewer breakouts I have. I think because it helps clean out the pores. But that's just my opinion.

I wear Eucerin protective moisturizer that has an spf of 25 first thing under makeup every day. It protects and acts as a barrier between your skin and makeup. Then I use Estee Lauder double wear foundation and double matte powder. The foundation is $30 and I cant remember how much I paid for the powder, but goes such a long way, looks natural even when I sweat and swim, and has never broken me out. I would cry if they ever took it off the market. I am from Florida so I am talking some serious sweat.

I must add that after strenous exercize when you have sweated alot you must thoroughly wash your face as soon as you get home. If I fail to do so I will begin to slightly break out. I wash with Eucerin pore cleaning face wash and a washcloth. Lightly, yet thoroughly. No matter what I always thoroughly clean my face before going to bed at night. If I fall asleep with makeup on I can be sure to breakout. I wear makeup quite often and as long as I follow these guidelines, I do not break out. I hope some of this information is helpful to you.
