    Does applying makeup in public attract unwanted attention in the Netherlands?



    I was on a forum and was surprised to hear that alot of the people there believed this. I tried to convince them that this was total BS by saying that there's no evidence online that supports this. However, I was met with a bunch of responses saying that it's common knowledge so that's why it's not mentioned and that someone actually read this on a travel guide book.
    I'm probably being kind of a wuss but when there's so many people who's refusing to believe you, you sort of start to question yourself; ya know?
    I would really appreciate it if you guys helped settle this once and for all.

    In China it is commonly assumed that girls who put on make up in public (or smoke cigarettes) are prostitutes. However I have never heard about such stereotypes in Europe. But it's true that it's not really common to see girls/women putting on make up in public transports, contrarily to Japan where this has become the norm.
