I have an 18 year old future step son who is currently making bad life choices but that’s another story. He tends to come home for lunch and sometimes brings friends with him. Yesterday I knew he was home at lunch and had people with him (multiple dishes in the sink, all the chairs pulled out from the table, etc). This morning I’m putting on my makeup which is in the main floor bathroom and notice that my eyeliner pencil is missing. I ask my 10 yr old daughter if she took it and she didn’t. I tell FI that someone took my eyeliner so he asks his son who says that a girl was here yesterday at lunch and she must have taken it. That pissed me off big time because what else has been stolen? Then I notice that my eyeliner pencil that I only use when we go out the tip has been worn all the way down. How long has this chic been using my makeup? Gross!

Hide your make up or don’t let the kid have comapny.
And no, I would not steal or use makeup that did not belong to me.

I started hiding it today! I didn’t know it was a problem.

@Face: Anyone who would steal your makeup would obviously use it. Sounds like your future stepson has some sketchy friends.

oh that’s gross. that would piss me off. after my fiance and future step daughter (she’s 14) moved in I noticed on days when she’d be home alone (no school, we’re at work) she’d have a full face of makeup on when we got home. Particularly black liquid liner. MY black liquid liner. It annoyed the heck outta me because that means she went in our bedroom and into our bathroom and through the drawers where I keep my makeup. I can only imagine how you feel!

First of all, that is disgusting! I would never use anyone else’s makeup – even someone I know! Set up a “nanny cam” to see what else is going on that you don’t know about. Or, just tell your stepson he can’t have friends in.

Gross! I wouldn’t steal or use someone’s makeup.
I’d tell your step son that his friends are no longer welcome in your home while you or DH isn’t there.

@RedheadMeggs I know right! And I don’t even know this girl! I feel violated and it makes me wonder what else has been going on that I haven’t noticed yet…like I said he’s making poor choices and obviously his choice of friends (or girlfriends for all I know) isn’t much better.

The hell!? That’s ridiculous.
No, I wouldn’t do that… I don’t think most sane women would.

Yuck, that’s gross. I would never share someone elses makeup let alone use it without their permission. I would certainly worry that if this person thinks they’re getting away with using/stealing your makeup, what’s next? They might move onto other possibly more expensive things.

That’s really, really gross! Growing up, my mother used to tell my sisters and I we were not to share makeup. My middle sister constantly had pink eye and other eye infections, so we weren’t allowed to share makeup with her. Something like eyeliner seems too intimate to share with close friends and family, let alone with a stranger. Bleck!

“Back in my day,” you were not allowed to have friends over without at least one of the parents being home.

@Face: there would be no more kids in my house if that happened to me! and I’d set my webcam on a livestream so I could watch from work 🙂

No visitors allowed unless an adult is present!

Yeah I don’t think I’d be allowing him or any of his little friends to come home without an adult preswent if they’re stealing shit from you.
Yeah I’ve borrowed people’s make up, but it’s a lot weirder and grosser to me now as an adult than it was when I was young.
