OK, I know what you're thinking. 'Gym lips'?! What in the world is this so-called 'gym lips'? Why do we need gym lips? And how on earth can anyone achieve such gym lips? Ah, what the heck, one more time for good luck: GYM LIPS.

I can see it now – you're rolling your eyes and preparing for the next ridiculous TikTok trend to follow which will probably be something along the lines of a workout for your little finger. Well, I hate to burst your predetermined judgemental bubble (don't fret, I was the same), but gym lips has nothing to do with working out. That is, not directly, anyway.

The trend was started by TikTok user Kelli Anne Sewell who explains, "basically, [it's] an overlined lip that I wear to the gym that is really natural". She adds: "The key is to have a lip liner that is your colour".

It all makes sense now, right? Here is the exact lipliner Kelli uses:

So, if you're after a little somethin' somethin' to spice up your gym workout, why not add a bit of colour into your pout? Or if, like me, you prefer to workout with no makeup on, you can also just opt for a clear gloss or lip treatment.

Even Kim Kardashian's recent Instagram post perfect fits into her rocking the 'gym lips' trend with the perfect nude-coloured lip look. Although, instead of at the gym, Kim is sporting her overlined lip look on the beach, so, perhaps we can call hers 'beach lips'?

But also, who said this look had to be worn exclusively at the gym? I think I'll rock this look perfectly working out. Working out what to buy down at my local Tesco, that is.
