Surprisingly, women disapprove of the practice more than men, with 42 percent feeling offended, compared with 41 percent of men. A third of men had no strong feelings either way – with just 22 percent saying it was no problem.

Pippa Bailey, senior director of Ipsos Marketing, which commissioned the research, said: “It’s fascinating to see how divided we are on the issue of applying make-up in public.

“At a time when manufacturers are innovating ever more compact and convenient make-up for use on the go, it appears the attitudes of many Brits still lag behind, with the feeling that the application of beauty products is best kept behind closed doors.”
