Here in the Southwest it’s heating up quickly to make us feel like spring is already upon us, so we’re thinking ahead. This spring, we’re focusing on makeup that won’t budge and will only benefit the cowgirls who spend most of their time outside. And as a cowgirl, you’re not looking to spend a ton of time on makeup that may melt off anyway while tending to your horses or doing things around the ranch. So we’ve tested out makeup that won’t budge, can be quickly applied, and has a natural look that all cowgirls love.
Cowgirl Dirt High Noon Lip Moisturizer
It’s tough to keep your lips fully hydrated when you’re working hard and out in the sun a lot, but this moisturizer will make sure your lips don’t get sunburned or chapped. Available on Cowgirl Dirt Cosmetics, $14.
Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème
If you hate the heavy feeling of foundation and love a more natural look and feel, this foundation is specifically for you. It’s full coverage for those cowgirls who want the coverage but not the heaviness. It’s also great for any skin type! Available on Becca Cosmetics, $44.
Dallas Face Powder
Do you struggle with choosing between blush and bronzer? There’s no need to do when you use Dallas! This face powder will give you a rosy, bronzed glow that stays put from sunrise to sunset when you bring the cattle home. Available at Benefit Cosmetics, $28.
bareMinerals Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Concealer
This is the opposite of a heavy concealer. It’s ultra lightweight, yet still creamy enough to cover those blemishes. It’s so natural and weightless that you won’t be able to even tell you have makeup on. Plus, the SPF 20 will help keep you protected for those long days spent outside. Available at bareMinerals, $19.
Clinique High Impact Waterproof Mascara
Waterproof mascara is essential if you’re going to be working outside while wearing makeup. You’re a cowgirl so you’re not afraid to get a little dirt and sweat on you, but you also don’t want to end up with raccoon eyes. This is where our favorite waterproof mascara comes in. Your lashes will stay clump, flake and smudge-free! Available at Clinique, $16.50.
