Primping passengers, unite. It’s not uncommon to see women applying their makeup while on public transportation — after all, who has time for a 22-step routine before you leave the house, like Kylie Jenner? But a British man took it upon himself to correct a woman who wanted to fix herself up on New Year’s Eve.

Twitter user @rosamundi recapped the showdown in a series of posts, as reported by the Metro UK. “Bloke has just told the woman he’s with not to put makeup on on the Tube. Every other woman in the carriage is now fixing their makeup,” she wrote. The tweet gained over 1,000 retweets and plenty of opinions. 

“a strange man on the bus once told me ’putting make up on in public is very unbecoming of a lady,’” another responded to the tweet. 

“quite,” @rosamundi said. “I don’t normally do makeup in public in case I poke myself in the eye, but we all treated it like a declaration of war.”

Applying makeup in public — especially on the train or bus — is a debatable issue stateside, too. In 2015, the MTA addressed “clipping” and “primping” in an ad for their courtesy campaign, seen on buses and trains all over New York City, Long Island and Connecticut. “Everybody wants to look their best, but it’s a subway car, not a restroom,” the poster reads.
