    What to wear at a hot-n-humid show?

    I'm not a girly girl but I do like to look nice and this includes the horse shows! But, unlike all the 20 somethings with flawless skin I need a little help, so in comes the make-up/foundation. Being in the south, it gets hot and the humidty (you sweat before the sun even rises!) can be unbearable. Can anyone recommend a foundation that won't slide off your face or melt away?

    I normally just put foundation on my "icky spots" and then leave it at that. Otherwise it would all come off, and that's just gross. (And not all 20 somethings have perfect skin either btw....)

    Or try tinted moisturizer.

    But really...its a horse show. Who cares? I am much more concerned about if I am going to have to take an extra show shirt because of sweating then worrying about makeup.

    They do make waterproof foundations.

    Waterproof foundation makeup

    I myself personally don't care too much about make up when I ride.

    Yeah I just assume my make up is going to melt off during those summer shows. I just wear a little light foundation with lots of powder, a very long lasting lipstick and call it good. When it's that hot and i'm wearing all those layers, I really stop caring.

    I normally just wear eyeliner, mascara, and a lip balm that has a good SPF number on it. I feel like, especially on hot days, that foundation chokes your skin. It literally feels like my skin can't breathe and that's an ickier feeling than sweating IMO. Chances are people are watching your riding not looking at your face. =D Plus no one's skin is flawless ;) Just have fun =)
