You're late for work and didn't have time to put your face together. So you glance in your car's rearview mirror -- or use the bus doors as a wall for support -- and somehow manage to apply lipstick during your commute. If this sounds familiar, you're not alone.

Women in their 30s are more likely to indulge in morning makeup on the go, while those who are in their 20s prefer applying makeup in the evening -- this according to a recent study conducted by British department store Debenhams.

The study also found 89 per cent of women touch-up their look on transit, and lipstick is the most applied product during a commute. The trickiest thing to do in a rush? Only 33 per cent of women are brave enough to apply eyeliner on the go.

If you're in a rush and looking for ways to pull yourself together in the morning, here are some tips to consider.
