What were we thinking in 5th grade when we all thought it was a most excellent idea to have a community Bonnie Bell Lip Balm? Or later in high school when our best friend applied her gloss and slipped it to us to do the same….
Sharing makeup so not a good idea.
Honestly, I’m a little different when it comes to makeup sharing I guess because it was never a thing for me.
I remember when I was 10ish and girl’s in my class would ALL share the same lip balm. You’d think I’d want in on some of that action. You know, it was a rite of passage, a bonding of sorts, a sense of belonging…but nope! I wasn’t that girl. I absolutely would not use a lip balm that touched a friend’s lips no matter how super close I was to them! Later on in life when I entered my freshman year of High School I become best friends with a super popular girl. She was gorgeous, I felt like a complete dork standing next to her but oh so proud I got to call her my best friend. Anyway, she was an over sharer….! When I tried my first cigarette (that was the first and last puff, I’m not a smoker) I refused to puff the one she had her lips on. She was also the type to give everyone her gloss to wear. I lost count of the amount of people that ended up wearing that single lipgloss she kept stashed in her locker.
I’m proud to say I wasn’t one of the ones wearing it!
As a child and a teen I was never one for sharing a hair brush, lipgloss, etc….I know many go through a stage where makeup sharing is kinda a thing! But I think we ALL grow out of it and realize it isn’t a a great idea!
Have you or do you currently share makeup with anyone?
Or are you as anal as I am about your makeup and simply NOT interested in sharing.
