How to Get Perfect Gym Lips—Try This Hack!
Take this viral TikTok beauty craze to the next level with plumping Ourself Lip Filler and Conditioner.
This summer, makeup artist Kelli Anne Sewell (@makeupxka) started the hashtag #gymlips and the “no-makeup makeup” look has never been the same. While the artist admitted she wasn’t “reinventing the wheel,” thousands of TikTok followers had to agree: #gymlips is the easiest, best way to showcase lips that are all yours, just a little zhuzhed up.
To refresh: The #gymlips application technique is fairly simple, straightforward, and requires little-to-no makeup artistry skills, which no doubt adds to its popularity. Basically, the look is achieved by using a lip liner that matches your natural hue as closely as possible, and lining the lips just slightly outside of the lines for a natural-looking, slightly oversized effect.
Next, use the same liner to fill in the lips all the way (i.e. color inside the lines), then add a moisturizer on top for an extra juicy-looking pout. Easy right? It’s the perfect way to elevate a no makeup face, and works just as well for the gym as grocery shopping or a Zoom call.
Which leads us to #gymlips 2.0. Ready to take this trend up a notch?
Step 1: Start with Ourself
Our Lip Filler was made for the #gymlips look because it essentially lends you exactly what this trend demands: Your own lips, just a little bit better by way of looking fuller, yet natural-looking.
Thanks to our patent-pending multiphasic delivery system, our Lip Filler is able to subtopically deliver hyaluronic acid to the layers where skin needs it most. Ideal for anyone who is needle-averse or simply wants to achieve plumper lips within the comfort of their own home, Lip Filler—which reclaims volume, definition, and suppleness—is our bestselling product for a reason: It really works. (In fact, clinical trials showed that 100% of users had fuller, plumper lips in just three weeks.)
To begin your Ourself x #gymlips journey, follow the jumpstart phase and apply Lip Filler daily for maximum benefits.
Step 2: Match Your Liner to Your Skintone
The key to achieving the ideal results is identifying the closest shade of lip liner to match your actual lips. (And keep in mind, an additional benefit of Lip Filler is that the formula works to slightly enhance your natural lip color, so you’ll want to shade match to your “after” hue.)
While there are plenty of nude lip liners available in various price points, we especially love the creamy texture of Pat McGrath Lab’s PermaGel Ultra Lip Pencil, which comes in a variety of nudes for all skin tones. Don’t forget: Line just outside your natural lip borders, then fill in all the way. Apply once Lip Filler is totally dry.
Step 3: Top With Lip Conditioner
The crucial final piece de resistance of #gymlips is applying a moisturizer on top of the lip color, which helps amplify the effect. You can do no better than Ourself Lip Conditioner to get the job done. Infused with nourishing vitamin e and hydrating hyaluronic acid, Lip Conditioner imparts the glassy shine of a gloss, but never feels sticky. In fact, it almost resembles a luxurious facial oil with a highly emollient texture, but for your lips. (Check out our “Before and Afters” to get a sense of the instant benefits.) The formula also contains ultra-rich cupuacu seed butter and a nourishing botanical blend. It’s highly addictive!
