    Don't overdo preparing for only half an hour's training. You'll end up being late and will have no clue what is going on.

    1
    Wear something comfortable. Wear your track pants and sports top. Nike or Adidas tops look the best, they are sweat absorbing and also keep you warm or cold. If you are on a team, wear the clubs team jersey or colours.

    Ditch the heels. Heels, seriously? Definite no-no for sports. Wear trainers, tennis shoes, astro-boots (They are grippy and ensure you don't slip) or football boots (don't wear if you're playing inside).

    Tie your shoelaces. Yes, it may be they latest fashion to have your shoes coming off every five minutes but be sure to tie them for sport. Want to go to prom with your head split open and your leg in a cast?

    Apply sunscreen. The worst possible thing to happen is to get burnt while playing sport. It hurts and makes it virtually impossible to run. Even if it's not hot out, still apply sunscreen or a moisturiser that contains SPF. Rub it thoroughly into your face in circular motions.

    Early morning training session? Get a dab of concealer or if you don't have any, make your own. First, find a jar or an empty moisturiser tub to put your concealer into. Next, get a white moisturiser and put some into the tub. Put in a generous amount, don't be afraid of wasting it! This method acts as a moisturiser too! Grab some of your foundation and mix it in well with the moisturiser. Add more or less than each ingredient. If you want a fresh, dewy look, add more moisturiser than foundation and. Apply the concealer under your eyes or wherever you feel you need it.

    Apply a tiny bit of mascara. Use black or brown mascara, these are the only two natural shades. Apply the mascara in a zig-zag motion to avoid it sticking your lashes together. Before applying it, check to see if its water-proof. You only make that mistake once.

    Apply some lip balm to your lips, out in rain, wind or shine won't do those lips of yours any favours. Vaseline works wonders and lasts for a while but other brands work too. Apply some on you eyelashes also to give your eyes a fresh look.

    Eyeliner if you must. Only apply eyeliner if you need it, otherwise, the eyeliner will come off and get into your eyes and lashes. Very few eyeliners are suited to playing sport.

    No earrings! Never wear earrings while playing any sport, they could get caught and rip your ear.... Ouch.

    Bracelets, watches and wristbands. If you want to look professional, the only one of these you'd want to wear is an energy band or a sports watch, BREO are the best brand for sports watches. Woollen bracelets are alright but can easily break, don't wear any precious or valuable jewellery while playing sport, it could get lost or broken.

    Rings could catch on someone else's clothes, so don't wear one.

Method 3
Hair-Styles

    Tie your hair back in a regular ponytail, leaving your bangs hang loose, next get a clamp and cover the bobble, this causes your ponytail to stay off your neck and looks like it has volume. Grab a bobby pin now and club back your bangs to the side, sorted!
