When I was a flight attendant, there was a required uniform that included pantyhose (even under pants) and makeup. It was more makeup than I would consider reasonable under normal circumstances (full foundation, powder, mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, lipstick, liner, blush – the whole kit.)
I was consistently out of uniform because I wore trouser socks and would only wear lip balm (no other makeup.)
Thankfully, I was never written up for that.
But, if my airline required that – others probably do too. And most flight attendants don’t have my flagrant disregard for proper uniform attire 😉
