Just because we ride like hell, doesn't mean we have to look like it!

I have been a rider for years! When I first started, I wore a full face, now I wear a cool Lid! Now, let me explain my make-up dilemma with both!
When I wore a full face, I felt it was wearing my face by the end of the ride, and what it wasn't wearing, I had sweated off! Then with my beanie, I have to worry about bugs, road grime, sun burn, and wind burn!
I am a motorcycle diva, and no, it's not a fashion show, but I am also the mother of three! In saying that, when I get to ride, I want to look good for a day out with my hubby! I don't want to trade the normal stuff I wear, like applesauce, for road grime! I want to arrive looking as good as I did when I left!
So, my husband has been working with bikes as a wrench and custom builder for over 17 years....so he is a true biker....TRUST ME ON THIS! And I have worked in retail and cosmetics for almost 18 years, and wondered why there wasn't a cosmetic line for female bikers!?!
So, I googled it! And I found Bika Chic Cosmetics! I am, as of last week, the new Southern Distributor for Bika Chic! I was so impressed! There is a foundation that is a moisturiser, sun screen, and tint all in one! OMG!!!!! I love it! And trust me, I do not wear make up every day because of all the steps and settling in my over 30 "smile" lines....etc. But I love putting this on! And my husband who tells me "you don't need it" has unknowingly told me he can tell a difference!
