    You've definitely thought: "Can't the bus just stop while I do my eyeliner?"

    1. In the morning, you want as much time in bed as you can possibly get.


    2. So either by choice, or because you're always running late, you do your make-up on the commute.

    7. If you get a little tray table, it can actually be a rather relaxing process.

    13. But it's all good, because you know they are about to witness a fabulous transformation take place.

    14. You're used to stopping and starting your make-up a lot.

    15. And because you're in public, everyone can see the weird faces you make.

    16. Not to mention when things go a bit awry.

    17. Yet although the staring can be fucking annoying, you know you're also guilty of doing the exact same.

    18. But there's a deep sense of respect for others who do their make-up on their commute.

    19. Because it's a highly skilled job.

    20. It's a dangerous job.

    21. But in the end, one that always* gets you to your destination looking like a fucking queen.

    *Well, it's 50/50 really.
