retouch make-up?

Hello, there:
Woman usually put on make-up.
If they want to put on make-up again, they want to wear lipstick after finishing meals, for example, is it idiomatic to say "retouch make-up"?

I learned that the term is specifically for pictures or photographs. I am wodnering if I can say "She wants to find a place where she can retouch make-up."
Could you correct it for free?
Thanks a lot!l

    I'll do it for free just this once: She wants to find a place where she can touch up her make-up.

    If we took a photo of her and wanted it to look better, we would retouch it.
