Unless, of course, any dudes know or want to ask their wives/girlfriends/etc if they happen to know the answer. Anyway, here's the question: Have any of you found makeup that doesn't get rubbed off by the padding in your helmet? Because there will come a time, and I suspect it will be soon, when I'll be "stepping out" on my bike and while usually my skin behaves pretty well, it does act up sometimes and my usual makeup that I slap on for that is not so good at the staying-on-my-freakin'-face thing when it's up against those pads.

Yeah, the foundation/powder combo (or whatever) can get messy. That's the problem to which I'm trying to find a solution without having to walk down the makeup aisles grabbing one of each different kind to test out.

I asked around and theres not a good makeup on the market that wont be messy. They are apply externally on your skin, and are designed to not be permanent, so no matter what you do, their gonna rub off.

I would suggest not wearing makeup while riding, or get an open faced helmet, or semi open faced helmet with no chin guard. that way you could at least have some lipstick on.

I personally like all women without makeup. Just my opinion, even a light accent here and there just seems too much to me. I like natural beauty. But I can totally understand why some women wear makeup from their perspective, and my opinion on the matter really is nul and void with that said haha

+1 Absolutely. What a woman really looks like, is more important than what she WANTS to look like.

This is secretly the opinion of most men... But contrary to our beliefs, women must first be comfortable with how they look and feel from what I have come to learn. Lol, as we all know, if she isn't happy, no one is happy!

You took the words out of my mouth lol and thats why my opinion is nul and void, because really it dienst matter what the man thinks, if all about the girls, no pun intended. lol

If makeup does the job, makes them fool good, thats all that matters in the end =D

Well, I generally don't wear foundation/cover-up/whatever it's called even day to day. I tend to save it for job interviews, going out and special occasions.
Hence why I was wondering, if I'm going to be taking my bike when I go out. BUT I'll manage going bare faced, I think. Better than looking like some sort of beige panda.

++1 some wear so much that when you compare there face with their neck, it's completely a different color lol. Like white face and a brown neck.

The lady just re applies when we arrive if we are staying for a while.
That is seriously the most obvious solution and I can't believe I didn't think about it before. If a medium sized pistol will fit in the "trunk", a bloody compact or two will absolutely fit. Pure genius.

Also, I love how all you guys have taken to waving ye olde au naturale beauty banner on here. Not in a sarcastic way. I just find it so interesting how real dudes are like, "Screw makeup", while the media pushes it as hard as possible. I'm not trying to point fingers or play blame games, but it's hard for us to toss the makeup when guys still respond so enthusiastically to heavily made up poster girls. But I know that's something like... instinctive.

It's instinctive. We are guys. Just because we love caked makeup poster girls doesn't mean we want our girls to be makeup caked.

Everyone knows that those magazine girls are made pretty by makeup, and computers. Pretty much everything girls are sold about male conceptions of beauty is completely phony.

We guys want a woman who is naturally pretty. Dyed hair is a turn off; people are born with the hair color that suits them. We don't want really thin girls either. Men, some consciously, some subconsciously, want a woman that looks like she could bear children and survive childbirth. That's why guys go crazy for a woman with hips. We like a little body fat, too.

Just about every guy I've talked to has said the same thing.

Oh, and this is extremely important for western girls; STOP TANNING! Most guys prefer their women fair. All you're doing is ruining your skin :p.

The message for women everywhere is simple: Be yourself! Oh, and don't diet too much.
