    Default Do you share your makeup?

    Just out of interest, do you share your makeup (foundations, eye shadows, eye liners, lipstick, makeup brushes etc) with other people? Or rather, do you let other people use your makeup?


    If you do, is it limited to family & close friends only? What about the children of friends? Or the friends of your friends' children?


    I'm wondering what other's do as I've just declined to use my own makeup to make up Not-A-Friend-Of-Mine's daughter for her primary school production. I have my own reasons for declining, as well as thinking that if the school required it, then they should provide for it. I don't even have any kids at that school, either.


    So, do you? Am I just a bish?

    Oh I wouldn't share my make-up in the above example either.

    Only with close friends. (And only then under the influence of wine! )

    Two reasons:

    I'm building up my make-up stash with more expensive lines, and well- they're expensive!

    And germs. Enough said.

    No, it is unhygienic.

    I'm with Nomsie! For something like you mentioned OP, no, I wouldn't use my own makeup.

    Plus, I spend a small fortune on my makeup and brushes.... I'm not overly keen on sharing them

    No I don't . My make up is for me only, I don't fancy sharing (lipsticks) especially, with others for fear of contracting cold sores and the like. Make up sharing to me, is as ewwwy as sharing your toothbrush.

    Gold, I don't think you're a bish at all. It doesn't cost much for a bit of make up for a primary school production. I wouldn't worry about declining.

    I wouldn't mind a close friend using some of my make-up, I draw the line at lip products though

    Sharing make-up isn't unhygeinic in itself. It's all about how you do it and cleaning your hands/brushes/etc, properly.

    I've never really been in a position to share make-up though. I've put it on my daughter to mess around, and I think I used some of my make-up on a friend when we were getting ready to go out, but only a little and it was no big deal. I wouldn't be using my own supply of personal products to apply make-up to someone else though, and I think it's really weird someone is asking you. Are you a make-up artist? If not, then I think it's weird to ask. I mean, people have asked me to do theirs, and I say sure... but they'll need to supply the make-up (at this point in time I can't afford my MUA kit).

    Good to know you all wouldn't share your makeup either, lol!

    Sassy, I'm not a makeup artist. Not-A-Friend-Of-Mine knows through mutual friends that I have quite a large personal collection of top brands. I thought it was forward as I don't have kids at that school, am not at all involved with the school or her and her daughter, nor am I doing any other child's makeup for the production. Heck, I didn't even know there was a production until she asked!

    I suppose I wouldn't mind if the makeup/brushes were provided. *light bulb moment* I'll go back to them & offer to do it provided they provide their own things. I just don't like the thought of using my personal things.

    Thanks everyone!!

    Ick, no way! I'd actually rather share a lipstick with someone than eye makeup, but I'm a little funny about eyes
