Great idea. I don't wear makeup other than a mineral based powder that serves as my sunscreen. I don't like the feel of lotiony sunscreen on my face because it's so heavy and greasy feeling. By the end of the day my face feels even grosser. Plus, I have really sensitive skin and have to be careful what I put on it.
Hey there -- I hope I did not misunderstand your above post......but if you are saying the only sunscreen you use is what is in your mineral based powder.......you might want to rethink that. In the BB you need a real serious sunscreen at least 25......the higher the better. The sun is unbelievably intense out there....even on overcast days. And for your lips, you need some serious protection also. Bert's Bees makes a "lifeguard formula" that really gives you the protection you need. Please do not underestimate the effect of the sun (and wind) out there.
True....this is what happened to Presidio the last time he went hiking with makeup on.....
Wind is certainly something else I was wondering about. Wind burns suck and my lips are really sensitive to it. Thanks for the Burt's Bees suggestion...I'll look for some.

No, don't put superglue on your lips, but take a trick I learned from reading up on Everest expeditions - take a piece of string and superglue an end of it to the container of "whatever you use" for chapstick. Then, attach the string either to a lanyard around your neck, your camera strap, whatever - then you have it readily accessible and will use it more often.
For applying your makeup in the morning on the south rim, how about a camp mirror?
What concerns me is Shane is discussing applying "MAKEUP".
As to this thread.....4 women have posted 12 messages, while 6 men have posted 13 messages (including this one), and there is one unknown as their avatar depicts a couple. So much 'For Ladies Only'.
Ladies, it appears that SOME of the men here are jealous of our Ladies Only thread. See the Off Topic discussion... :lol: :lol:
