Makeup on the run: what can and cannot be done in a taxi, subway and bus?
The rules of etiquette prohibit applying makeup in public, but in the modern world they are unlikely to be reproached if you powder or paint your lips in vehicles or cafes. And what else can and cannot be done in terms of good manners and your safety?
This story happened to each of us: when we run out of the house in the early morning, we hope to apply makeup on the run. There can be many reasons: they overslept, collected children for school for a long time, and maybe in a hurry for the morning flight ... You can bring beauty even in public transport, but do not forget about the comfort of the passengers around you and your own safety.
Makeup in a taxi.
The easiest way is to apply makeup in a taxi: only the driver will see how comfortable you are in the back seat.
What can not be done? Do not use the liner for the eyes and lip liner while moving - the hand may flinch and the eyeliner will turn out a curve. Do not try to apply mascara - you can prick your eyes. In extreme cases, wait until the taxi stops in traffic or at a red traffic light.
What can be done? In a moving taxi, you can apply a concealer on your face to hide signs of fatigue: remove circles under the eyes, redness and inflammation. Cream blush and lip gloss add freshness.
Makeup in the subway.
The movement of the train is smoother than the car, but bring beauty carefully: there are a lot of passengers around whom your morning make-up may confuse.
What can not be done? There is poor ventilation in the subway cars, so forget about all the smelling things: perfumes, hair spray and even more so nail polish. Firstly, you will disturb passengers, and secondly, someone may be allergic to your cosmetics.
Do not touch your face: you have already touched the handrails, which are full of germs. No matter how great the temptation, do not apply foundation, concealer or cream blush.
What can be done? In the subway, you will have time to powder your face with the help of a sponge and make up your lips - this is already enough to get to the office. If you didn’t wash your hair in the morning, then you will have time to do a hairdo, for example, to braid a volume braid or a sloppy bun.
Makeup on the bus.
Be careful while driving the bus: it stops abruptly and picks up speed again. And do not forget about the comfort of passengers near you.
What can not be done? Do not try to apply mascara, eyeliner or make up your lips with bright lipstick - you risk staining with a sharp movement of the bus.
What can be done? Only three products will help to refresh your face: lip gloss, cream blush and a little highlighter. For more control of application, use your fingers, not applicators. Just remember to thoroughly sanitize your hands before applying cosmetics.
If you are sitting by the open window, you will have time to dry and style your hair during the trip. Start laying the house: half-dry the locks with a hairdryer and apply your favorite styling product (gel or cream for curling, mousse for volume). The warm wind and the sun themselves will complete the hairstyle while you rush to work.
