Applying Makeup in Public: Do Or Don’t?

April 10, 2009

This morning I happaned to glance across the subway car and saw a girl with not one but FOUR filled-to-the-brim makeup bags in her jumbo-sized purse. She proceeded to apply her Maybelline Dream Mousse Liquid Foundation with a sponge, then concealer, eyeshadow (three different shades), liner, powder, mascara, brow highlighter, brow pencil & gel, blush and cheek highlighter, some contouring powder, and gloss. Now I’ve seen many a woman apply her makeup on a subway car, but this usually consists of a little powder, mascara and lipstick/gloss, not a full-on makeup regimen!

I happen to think it’s a bit tacky to be applying a full face of makeup in public (no offense to anyone!), but I also don’t really see anything wrong with discreetly reapplying your lipstick or gloss (and if absolutely necessary, a little powder) throughout the day. What’re your thoughts on applying makeup in public?

And yes it’s almost Easter! 🙂
