Don't fix your make-up in public
Even if you are Queen Sylvia of Sweden, above, you are not supposed to refresh your make-up in public - especially when you are receiving guests at a formal banquet.
If by some “disaster” - a wind that blows your hair or a waiter’s arm that touches your face when removing a plate - you have the suspicion that you are not as beautiful and charming as expected, wait for a free moment to go the restroom or to escape behind a column to check it.
You are free to refresh your make-up as often as you like before you leave your home, office or car. But, please, don't do it in public. Otherwise, you are telling your friends that your beauty they admire is artificial. Besides, they have the right to be treated with respect and to not have someone doing in front of them what they should have done before in private.
