Tracee Ellis Ross is just a ball of sunshine isn’t she? She brings a certain joie de vivre to everything, and that includes the gym.

While giving a little insight to InStyle about the things she likes, including her beauty must-haves, the actress talked about her love for MAC’s Ruby Woo lipstick, and the rationale behind getting #RedLipFit. Ellis Ross, who often posts videos of her workouts, sometimes hits the gym with a noticeable red lip. She said that she tries to wear a red lip for pretty much everything as her go-to makeup, and that includes time in the gym.  The star is a fan of the Tracy Anderson Method and during especially tough workouts, she says the look gives her an extra boost in spirit and confidence.

“I don’t like foundation. I love the look of a fresh face with a pop of color on the lips,” she said. “It makes me feel so good. I’ll even wear a red lip to the gym. 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!'”

Ellis Ross told Health magazine earlier this year that her choice to do so has caught on around the gym and plenty of women are working up a sweat with a bold red lip alongside her now.

“I’ve caught some of the trainers doing it now!” she said. “When you look in the mirror, you want a little pop.”

Check out a few times Ellis Ross documented her workouts and brought some Ruby Woo with her to feel the burn:
