No, not normally. But I do like giving my friends makeovers, and so I do use some of my stuff on them. However, would I let them go all willy-nilly with things such as my foundation, eyeliner or mascara? Hell to the NO!

I don’t let anyone else use my make up, but then again, I don’t think any of my friends are that interested, seeing how most of them are guys. :p But still, I wouldn’t let anyone use it, I’m very protective of my stash! ^^

I only let people closest to me play – so only my sisters get to try out my stuff. They use their own brushes of course!

I have one friend that I will let play but mostly b/c she’s just become addicted to MAC and is still trying everything and deciding what to purchase. I also let my mom & sister “play” in it but none of them are allowed to touch unless I’m there to assist. haha My husband says I’m a little psychotic about it but I seriously have a LOT invested into it….

NO WAY! I do let friends and family admire my stash because I think it’s pretty nice and really cool and when they see something they like I encourage them to buy for thier personal enjoyment.

I have sensitive skin and eyes…so I just can’t imagine having tons of fingers and/or brushes playing in my makeup. Just…yuck!!

Luckily none of my friends are into makeup like me….because I think I would be a “hands off” kinda person. Now I have done up my friend eyes before but that was one time.

Play with? No. But I do let my 3 close friends and my sister use some of my stuff if they wish… which is not very often. I’m the resident makeup person when we’re going out, which can be very annoying, so I’ve learned to only bring what I’m using for myself when I’m getting dressed somewhere other than home.

No, germs! Also, before I was a germaphobe they would ask if they could have things and I would lose parts of my stash to their looting.

I am a big germaphobe! Occasionally I’ll do makeup for my friends, but I am very careful about not contaminating my stuff.

No, mostly because noone ever asks, but also, I don’t think it’s appropriate. When my daughters (who are 8 and 5) are older I might let them use my small collection on drugstore make up, but not my high end stuff! 🙂

I keep the makeup I tried and didn’t like (will never use again) stashed in an old caboodle container and let my little girls play with that (they usually get excited about makeup when they see me putting it on). Other than that (and the occasional pedicure sessions with my daughter), no one touches my stash but me.

No… I’m kinda THE make up girl of the family
I mean one day I went to MAC with my sister (she’s 9 and half years older than me) and she was there pointing at jars of pigments and being “What do you use them for?” So it was so funny explaining her about everything while the MAC MUA was watching us lol
