We don't know about you, but our post-gym looks aren't always our best. Our hair is kinked from our ponytails, we're wearing absolutely no makeup (lest our pores clog and our liner melts), and our faces are bright red. It's a look that says, "I just worked my ass off at spin class, and I don't care what I look like right now" — one we wear proudly as we strategically dodge the doughnut shop directly across the street.
Then there's Taylor Swift, who may very well be an alien from Planet Always Looks Angelic. BuzzFeed was the first to note how insanely put-together she is strutting out of her yoga classes, and it's true. No tomato face, no sweat-matted hair, no nothing.
While our first reaction was to yell and scream at the injustice of it all, we actually took a good, hard look at these photos. And, the truth is, what Taylor is doing here isn't so difficult to pull off. In fact, with a few simple tweaks, you can hit brunch after your Sunday morning boot-camp class without spending an hour and a half in the locker room.
Ahead, we present you with the Taylor Swift guide to not looking like you were just at the gym — when you were just at the gym. Trust us: There's some pretty good advice to be learned here.
