It’s a myth that female motorcycle enthusiasts – or as we lovingly call ourselves, “biker chicks” – are rough and tumble types who don’t care about how we look. You badass babes out there know that you’re the sexiest girls alive. If you’re preparing for a long motorcycle ride, then here are the beauty tips that will help you to stay gorgeous throughout the entire trip.
You wear leather and protective Kevlar to protect yourself in the event of a crash, fall or skid. Well, protection is the name of the game when it comes to beauty as well. Your two biggest enemies on a long motorcycle ride are sun and wind. Prevent sunburns and premature signs of aging by always wearing sunscreen. Remember, a tan isn’t worth a lifetime of wrinkles.
As for wind, the biggest problem it causes is dry, chapped skin. This is why hydration is key. Before you set out for the road and before you apply your sunscreen, apply a thick facial moisturizer. If you want an extra boost of hydration, add a few drops of a hydrating oil, such as argan or rose hip seed oil. Don’t forget to protect your lips with a thick lip balm.
Style Your Hair The Smart Way
Most seasoned female motorcycle enthusiasts giggle at the newbies who think that their tight, styled hairstyle will last for the duration of the ride. Not only will it most likely get crushed under the helmet, but the wind will blow it apart. Style your hair the smart way by giving yourself intentionally messy, loose waves. The best way to achieve this look is by scrunching your hair when it’s wet and applying a texturizing spray that contains sea salt. Once you have the waves or curls you want, you can allow the hair to air-dry or blow-dry it using the diffuser attachment.
Opt For Light, Simple Makeup
Choose light makeup that will survive wind, sweat and humidity. Instead of foundation and powder, pick a BB cream that will give you some coverage without sitting too heavily on the skin. A cream blush and eye shadow are great ways to get a little color without applying a powder that’s likely to move around or smudge. Finish up with a waterproof mascara and you’re good to go.
If you follow these tips, you can stay glam on even the longest of motorcycle rides.
