My makeup isn't any sort of giant routine, but I like to have a little something on my face when I go out. I don't actually use any foundation, as I have sensitive skin, so I stick to concealer and pressed powder, so it's the powder that I find plastered to my padding at the end of the day. I guess I'll have to suck it up and deal, or worse yet, just wear a 3/4 helmet...
why does this makeup/hair thing looks even more technical than bike mecanics :S

Why, it looks more technical because it is

We ladies must look our best at all times.

Ouch Ouch

Don't wear a 3/4 helmet. A broken jaw would really suck...

Talking Divert the attention

If you are good looking, and toned...Go with the see through thong bikini. Most guys won't notice if you have a head, much less hair or make-up on it.

Ok....Ok....Put down the napalm, phosphorus grenades, and flame throwers, I am just kidding

Seriously though...Don't worry about makeup, natural beauty works better than all that fake shit. A pony tail out the back of a ball cap works for me to

In my younger years I had long (just shy of ass length) hair. My "Friends" used to call me Nelson (after the Nelson twins) I would use one hair band at the base of my neck and another at the end of my hair. It still managed to tangle a little, but it was much easier than trying to run a brush or comb through hair that had been allowed to wisp around freely.

I recently cut my hair very short after 16 years of no hair cuts. I would ask my wife to braid it & the put the braid down inside my jacket. When I didn't have a braid a couple of those pony tail things & again put it inside my jacket. Now with short hair I too just put a cap in the little storage compartment. Sorry but the makeup thing is out of my experience so i don't have an answer for ya.
I gotta tell ya though that girls who ride are unique enough that most guys are gonna be intrigued even with helmet hair. They see you get off a bike & shake out your hair, believe me that's sexy.

I'm a guy with hair about an inch long and even it looks pretty crazy after a day of riding. I think there's no way out, except the magic bad-hair-day solution, wear a hat!

I cut my hair shoulder length and have no problems with it now. other than bringing a brush with you, or styling it when you get off your bike I dont know what to sujest. As for make up, try to stay away from anything liquid, or any of the sticks or pencils, as they tend to smudge more. I found light make up works, and powder doesnt move as much, although I dont wear it often.

good luck!

I work in an office environment, so I usually wear slacks to work, but I still ride my bike! I just carry clips with me to clip it back. Unfortunately there isn't much we can do when we have long curly hair to keep it from getting mashed in our helmet! I tried using a "doo" rag (bandana) and that seems to work better than nothing, but if I'm really in the mood to fix my hair, I will go to the bathroom with my pick and wet my hair and spray it again. If I'm just out in public riding, I go with the clip.
