Default helmet that

I have a feeling someone might roll their eyes at this but bear with me. Okay, so I ride my motorcycle everywhere. So I was shopping at Ulta and just decided to try on make up. Now the dilemma comes after I come out of the shop and discover that I happen to have a full face helmet. Ugh.(stupidity at its finest) So I was wondering, do people ride with make up? If so, what helmet do you wear? I actually wanted to buy another lighter helmet for summer and I thought it would be great if it could accommodate the make up. If there is none then it's still good because other than that time, I really don't ride with make up. Nonetheless when I'm going to a friends house for a day of fun, I would like to at least look nice.

ps. Would this count as a ditzy thread? If so ...

If your full-face helmet is sized right, it's going to smear your makeup. No way around it. Except your eyeliner.

You could get a 3/4 lid with a face-shield if it really bugs you.

Its.......A FACT!

If you are a decent looking chick, *and* you ride a motorcycle, don't worry about the makeup, or put it on after you arrive. You are cool enough already!

Or, you could get a 'modular' hat.

That would allow you to put it on, then bring down the full-face shield.

Now, the hair is an entirely different story. Unless you are Flo, the Progressive chick.

I have a 3/4 Scorpion lid with (retractable) full face shield. It would likely be a good option for you. The visability & line of vision are unobstructed, though not as safe as a full face with the jawbone section, but I like seeing everything.

I don't really care about my hair. It's wild and dread locked regardless of what I do to it. It looks exactly the same even if I ride for an hour with a snug helmet. I don't even do the whole sexy hair thing when I remove my helmet because it makes no difference.

You haven't seen my face. It's the rocky mountains right now.

If you're talking acne, you should be looking at Clean and Clear or Proactiv, not makeup

So ... unattractive women should wear makeup or full-face helmets?
