You can treat your workout studio as a (sweaty) runway and rock designer clothes, if you’re so bold, and get through those burpees in your best embellished leggings. Admiring your outfit is certainly one way to motivate yourself through your sweat sesh.

Another way? Wearing lipstick.

That’s exactly what Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross does to get through her go-to workout class.

The lip color enthusiast always applies a swipe of pigment before getting her sweat on, she tells InStyle. “I love the look of a fresh face with a pop of color on the lips,” she says. “It makes me feel so good.”

“When I see my red lips reflecting back at me, I’m like, ‘Yeah, girl, that’s right!'”

So good that she takes her chic look to her local Tracy Anderson studio—her fave exercise spot—to sweat it out, makeup on and all. “I’ll even wear a red lip to the gym,” says Ross. “I do the Tracy Anderson Method, so there’s a lot of mirror work involved. When I see my red lips reflecting back at me, I’m like, ‘Yeah, girl, that’s right!'” Get it.

That’s definitely a fierce move, but hey—whatever gets you through those burning arm movements (and boosts your badass confidence at the same time).

To try it out for yourself, here are the 5 lipsticks that look good on everyone and the butt-sculpting workout that made Tracy Anderson famous.
