This purple-lipped look is my personal pick, especially because it's closest to what I wear on a daily basis. However, I was apprehensive going in to the third SoulCycle class.
"If my makeup is going to mess up on any of the days, it'll be today," I told my coworker as we clipped in to our bikes, gingerly touching my lips — they still felt glossy and wet, which isn't a good sign when you've got impending plans to rub your face with a towel. I anticipated seeing a horrendous lilac mess on my face after our final stretches.
