We've all done it: A swipe of lip gloss in the ladies’ room or a touch up of blush here or there. Does sharing makeup rank on the list of beauty no-nos? Read on to know more
#1: When it comes to bad makeup sharing habits the eyes rank as the most dangerous. Most contagious viral infections like conjunctivitis or pinkeye are most common and your girlfriend may not always know she’s brewing it.
#2: Lending your lip gloss, lipstick and lip balms could be risky. If your friend has herpes labialis, an infection caused by the contagious herpes simplex virus. That's the virus that causes small painful blisters known as cold sores or fever blisters on the mouth. Your friend may be 'shedding virus' and not realise she’s getting a cold sore.
#1 If you really can't avoid sharing makeup simply wipe off the top layer of the product after a friend uses it or when you’re at a makeup counter in a store. If it's a liner pencil, sharpen it and swipe a lipstick or shadow compact with a tissue. This way you manage to get rid of most of the bacteria.
#2 Back away from makeup testers. Always avoid all testers especially a lip or eye product directly on your face at any beauty counter. Instead sample or apply a bit of product on the back of your hand if you want to test or explore the colour.
#3 Unless it’s absolutely necessary to share your vanity kit, I’d say don’t share your lipsticks with your girlfriend the next time you’ll are getting ready together.
