A journalist has branded women who apply their makeup on the train ‘selfish’ because it is ‘visually polluting’ for their fellow commuters.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Nina Myskow, 72, said women should know there are ‘boundaries’ on what is acceptable on the train, and a makeup routine should be carried out in ‘private’.
She told Jessica Cunningham, 31, that she should ‘get up earlier’ after The Apprentice star said she does her makeup on her two hour train journey in order to have more time to spend with her four children in the morning.
Ms Myskow’s comments were slammed by viewers, who said there was ‘no harm’ in doing makeup on the train.

Ms Myskow said she has seen women do it on her journey, with one woman getting bronzer on the man next to her and another squeezing her blackheads in her makeup mirror in front of the other passengers.
She said: ‘Like on social media, people have forgotten there are personal boundaries and it is quite selfish. If you want to do it on the tube that’s entirely up to you, if you can’t get yourself together, if you’re too lazy. Get up earlier.’
Ms Cunningham said she was ‘utilising her time’ by doing her makeup on her journey into work and asked her opponent in the debate how it was selfish.

Ms Myskow answered: ‘It’s visually polluting and secondly there’s hairspray that’s going on or nail varnish that smells. I sat next to a woman on the tube last week that got a big brush out into the bronzer, it went tap, tap, tap and it went all over the man next to her.’
Reality star Jessica admitted to doing her makeup, as well as plugging in her straighteners to fix her hair, but claimed she always asked other people in the carriage if they had any objections to it first.
She said: ‘I’d rather just straighten my hair or make myself look a bit more presentable on a train when I’ve got a good two hours than miss two hours putting my kids to bed.’
The journalist disagreed, saying she was ‘disrespecting’ other people on the train.

‘Don’t you have enough self-respect to keep the private things private?’ she fired back.
Her comments were criticised by GMB viewers, with one tweeting: ‘How is putting on makeup a ”private” matter? It’s just face paint essentially.’
”’Enough self respect.” WTAF is she going on about ?!?!?’ another posted.
A third said: ‘Can someone please explain how doing your makeup on the train is selfish and arrogant and something that should ‘be done privately’ I legit can’t even see a slightest problem????’
