Lipstick at the gym might seem nonsensical — especially because your mouth is one of the places you wipe most while working out — but hear us out. Maybe you’re an instructor who wants to looking popping while rallying the masses or lipstick gives you the boost you need to finish out leg day. Either way, you want to look good even when you’re working up a sweat. That’s where we come in. We’ve rounded up the best lip looks for the gym, ahead:
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.
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 Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lip Gloss — a comfortable formula with a hint of color.
Light, Sheer Lipstick
A sheer lipstick is always a good idea for those perspiring moments. Our fave will always be YSL Volupté Tint In Balm, a moisturizing lipstick that will keep your lips hydrated while delivering a subtle wash of color.
Lip Liner and Smudge!
Use a lip liner to trace the circumference of the lips and then simply smudge the color. We can’t get enough of the NYX Professional Makeup Suede Matte Lip Liner. They’re blendable, affordable and come in an endless number of shades.
Go Bold or Go Home
So maybe you want to run with a full red lip — and for that we commend you. Try Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink, a longwear formula that won’t budge no matter how intense your workout and wears comfortably throughout the day.
