Generally, I would just let it roll off and move on, because the majority of people I interact with are close friends or family, so it would only be a casual acquaintance that might say something, but I find it pretty rare. But here are a few things I might say: “It’s not your money” or “This is my hobby and creative outlet” or “It’s not your face” (if it’s about my makeup choices).
