I don’t wear a lot of makeup. All I wear is translucent loose powder. Sometimes I use mascara. Sometimes I wear lipstick. The lipstick makes me feel good. My favorite is the MAC PatentPolish in Ruby. Unfortunately, it’s discontinued but you bet I stocked up. I had to get most of them from a store in San Francisco.
However, while running I don’t wear any makeup at all. Well, if you count chapstick then, yes, I do. Will I judge anyone that does wear makeup? Nope. NOT AT ALL.
I may not wear makeup while running. It isn’t for me. But you bet I like to splurge on running clothes. Thanks to Oiselle I have quite a collection to use throughout the various seasons in Chicago. Yep, if feels like we do have more than 4 seasons. Last week I received 6 new pairs of shorts. Do I need more? Definitely not but I want them. Let’s not forget my shoes. I have various new pairs waiting in boxes to be used.
Wearing makeup while running is a personal choice. If someone wants to wear makeup then who am I to say anything about it?
One thing I know I need to get better at is wearing sunscreen. I know, I know. I wear it mostly during the Summer but I do know I need to use it year round. I usually use the spray on version for my legs and arms but like the stick for my face. My favorite one is Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Non-Greasy Sunscreen Stick for Face & Body, Broad Spectrum SPF 70. It may not feel like Summer yet but it is sunny already.
Any other suggestions for a face sunscreen? Thoughts on wearing makeup while running?
