Want to break a sweat without breaking any beauty rules? Makeup artist Andrew Sotomayor says, "A sweaty workout at the gym is the last place anyone wants to try to look or feel sexy, so pick something that's casual and flattering."

Here are a few lip looks and techniques that will work for the gym.

A Hint of Lip Balm

Wearing lip balm while you workout is a great idea because it’s a bit of moisture and color without going full throttle We love Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm in Pink Punch.

Gloss Over

A light gloss is always a good choice for the gym because it’s lightweight, hydrating and comes in so many formulations. You can even go for slightly shinier versions, like Lancôme Juicy Tubes, which moisturize, but aren't tacky.

Light, Sheer Lipstick

Don’t opt for mattes or richly pigmented lipsticks because they’ll dry out your pout. A sheer lipstick is always a better idea for those perspiring moments.

Lip liner and smudge!

Use a lip liner to trace the circumference of the lips and then simply smudge the color in.

Get Peachy

Give your pout a subtle pop of color - after all you never know who you might run into! Peach is the perfect shade to lend your lips a natural, yet noticeable glow that's well, peachy.
