I can hear some of you already: "I don't care what I look like when I exercise!" To which I reply: "Word,sister." Neither do I.But there was a time when,as a single lady,I enjoyed bringing a certain level of cuteness to thegymin hopes that I would bump into a guy with similar levels of cuteness.If you don't rule out workout time as pickup time,you should check out these 3 tips for looking hotter while working up a sweat.

1.Swap your gym pony for a simple braid.
Or really,just put in your usual pony,tightly braid the tail,and twist a rubber band on the bottom.(If you really want to be adorable,use one of those old-school hair ties with the two clear beads!).A braid looks pulled-together even when soaked in sweat,unlike a limp,damp pony.It also makes frizz a non-issue.And also,I think boys are drawn to sweet pigtails;when I wore one on a jog the other day,my husband was like "you never wear your hair like that--you should." Awww.
2.Wear tinted lip balm.
It's less obvious than lipstick or shiny gloss,but it adds pretty color to perk up your face when you're not wearing much makeup,or any at all (going foundation-free is the ideal at the gym,since you don't want to clog your pores).
3.Curl your lashes and apply waterproof mascara.
Here's another quick makeup move that doesn't risk causing zits if you do it pre-workout.Curling your lashes will instantly make your eyes pop--no need to mess around with a bunch of shadows and liners that'll instantly sweat off.And waterproof mascara will hold the curl in place until you remove it later on.
