I wanted to put some makeup on to go out with friends,also to meet up with other friends.I could not find my mascara and had to ask my daughter if i could use some of hers and then i discovered that she had nearly ran out,thankfully she had enough so that i could do both of my eyes.Thankfully my daughter do not mind me using her things,mind you she uses mine alot of the time so she told me.

That's good there was enough for you to use. Did you know that when the container is almost empty, seal it tight and let it sit in hot water and it will make it that much more to use. Small trick of the trade = enjoy

My make-up is all running out at the same time and I can't afford to replace it. That sounds like a great idea regarding the mascara. Could it work for my liquid foundation (I can take the top off it) as that would be the dearest product for me to replace?

Absolutely it will work, any liquidity form type of make up that has exposure to the air begins to dry. See every time we open and use it air is expose to it and it causes it to cake and or dry out. So what I do is run hot water in the faucet in a cup and put the sealed container there to allow it to soften again. This will allow more use of it.

I wish I had known this when I was selling Avon, hardworkinggurl! This is a good seller's tip! Thank you for sharing it with us!

You shouldn't worry so much about how you look. Your friends love you, as does your husband and your family and I can't see how makeup benefits anyone--after all, if you're single and hookup your prey sees you in the morning as you are naturally. If you want to impress someone in business they will eventually see you as you are. What good is makeup? You are beautiful as you are. I can look at anyone and see something beautiful about them. When we care to see like that the world will be better and more honest. I know you like to look your best. But your best is how you are naturally and that is what your husband and family love!

I think it depends on how you were raised. For example, my mother always wore makeup and she taught my sisters and me that people look better with it. Some people are allergic to certain brands of makeup and I understand that hypoallergenic lines are expensive. They won't pay the price for the hypoallergenic lines. Some people look good without makeup but I think they look better with it. I'm aware that some people wear too much but they can learn how to tone it down.

Yes, makeup is just for fun and looking extra good. You cannot change the inner you just by putting up make up on your face. Eventually, all will know how you look actually without it and then suddenly you will have a emotional breakdown when even make up cannot hide your age or some wrinkles on your face One should never take make up seriously. I use it purely for fun because I love wearing it. Also, I use only few things which is essential for ant girl of my age. A little eye liner, lipstick and compact will not harm.

it makes me miss my mom more. my mom and i have a habit of borrowing each other's make up, but usually with eyeliners only and sometimes lipsticks. i think its me who uses hers more. the only problem sometimes is that the colors that works ell with her, don't really ork for me since e have different complexion.

Finally the tables are turned. My 13 year old is always taking my makeup, hair accessories, etc. Good for you for using her mascara! Since I have been on my diet I have lost lots of weight and now need to use one of her belts (no I am not that skinny it is a extremely large belt)! It sure does feel good.

My mother also uses some of my stuff and I also use some of hers. It's just annoying sometimes because she doesn't return them properly. There have been a lot of times when she lost my eyeliner and comb because she forgot where she placed them. I always make it a point to put the stuff back where I got them, so it peeves me a bit when she can't do the same. Anyway, I don't mind sharing my stuff with her as long as she returns them properly.

You are the mother, you shouldn't worry too much about using your daughter's stuff. If you explain your situation to her, she won't mind at all that you use her make up. Same thing she would do the same if she need to borrow your stuff.

I think a daughter to share a mascara with the mother is something common, and why not? Things should be share between the mother and daughter. I never use a mascara but I think when a women use a mascara will definitely make them look more beautiful!

I think that if it is family members, you all can use each other's make up, but with friends, you really shouldn't because you can spread germs to them that you might have or they can spread germs to you. I have never used my friends make up, I always buy my own make up and use my own make up. Also, some of my friends make up isn't meant for my skin tones or my type of skin. I am allergic to most make up out there and I have to be very careful as to what make up I buy and choose.

I don't let my mom use my make-up. She doesn't use it properly. My lipstick gets all dirty and oily. She uses lip gloss first before putting on lipstick. Her color doesn't also matches mine. It's a good thing that we have separate make-ups. It lessens the possibility of spreading microorganisms. What if I have some skin disease on my face then transmitted to her. I don't want that to happen! But sharing a mascara and eyeliner is fine. No problem with that.

Hi jugs, it's nice to know that you still have someone under one roof to share with here the required makeup. I'm not that lucky as there isn't one in my house using lady makeup. My husband's elder sister doesn't own any makeup and what she has got is talcum powder only. She did have a couple of lipsticks in different colors before but she no long uses any makeup for quite some time. And all the other male family members don't use any makeup for sure. I don't want to be at a loss what to do if running out of any makeup. Therefore I have to make sure that there are some simple makeups which I usually use are always with me. Of course I would like to share with my husband's sister if she really needs the items that I have Happy posting

You're very lucky to have a daughter you can share your make up with. I only have a son and there's nobody to share the beauty tips thing or the make up thing with. I'm the only female in the house and that's very sad lol.

As a guy I have no need (?) for make up, but think that it's great that you can share like this. So often it's just the one way around!

I never use make up, but i like these chunky artificial jeweleries, i wear matching necklaces and ear rings. my daughter all of 7, borrows them even if i have bought few exclusively for her. there is a saying in our community. "Better wear and enjoy all jeweleries or make up before u become a mother of a girl............"hahaha....true to it, all daughters borrow their mother's things and not allow her to wear any.

This is classic. It just shows you have good taste in jewelry. I like chuncky pieces too although I'm not very good at pairing more than basic stuff. Oh, well

if we gave the same things to a person, more likely the person would do the same thing with us. maybe that is the way that your daughter feel. u had shown that u give something to her, then in return she gave you back

You have a cool mother-daughter relationship. Sometimes daughters do not like their mom meddling with their stuff.

I always used my mom's cosmetics but i never allow her to use mine! I don't like to share my things with anybody including family members. I'm quite selfish when it comes to personal things. Luckily we are family members, and so she won't be mad at me when i refuse her stuffs. BUt when it's the other way round, i will be angry, as i don't want my mom to use too much or even worse, damage it.

My daughter is still too young to have anything that I am able to borrow from her. However, up until about a year and a half ago my family lived with my mother and at that time my mother, my sister and myself all shared clothes. It was great because we were so close in size to share all of our wardrobes. Of course I really miss that now that we've moved into our own house. There are times that I will go over to her house just to borrow a shirt or something like that.

I think it's just okay to that since she's your daughter and you know her.
