So, I had a good run for a month or so.
I’m a complete make up novice. Some how, when learning about all that stuff in the teenage years, I completely missed the boat. So, now as an adult, I’m fudging my way through. I don’t typically wear make up in my day to day life but there are certain occasions when I felt it would be an appropriate thing for me to do. I’m sure many others have successfully tackled riding with make up but this is my take on it.
I had a friend’s wedding coming up and so, as not to look like a clown or like a child who has gotten in to the parents’ stash, I decided to do a few trial runs putting on make up and wearing it to work. As many of you know, my trip from home to work is about 8km of fairly flat riding. Of course, when I decided to do this trial, it had to be one of the most rainy (100+mm) and humid (most days over 80%) weeks my area had in ages. Temps were around 25°C mark. So, I felt I gave the make up a good longevity trial!
