How much interference do you accept from your DDs?

With regards to make up and hair?
I don't wear much make up but DD1 wants to 'do' my face

let her do it once - how bad can it be? pictures makeover scene from Good Girl movie

seriously, why not - as long as your relationship is good enough that you can say "I don't fancy it" it will be fine.

Depends on the age of DD. 6 year old I wouldn't hold out much hope - 16 year old I would give it a go and scrub it off later. I hate anyone else doing my makeup though.

Interference seems a funny word. If she's saying you must wear make up like this or else - that's definitely not good. If she wants you to see how you'd look with it on then that seems rather lovely of her. Depends on the overtone really.

My daughter helps me out with comments such as 'I love your beaufiful togs mummy' but she's 2.5y.

My 17yr old cousin however I wouldn't be keen to let dress me or do my make up as she is going through an emo with lots of flicky eyeliner and red lips phase. I suppose it would depend on whether your daughter would enhance what you normally do or give you a few tips rather than wanting you to permanently wear make up you're not that into.

Well, I amicably succumbed! In public no less.
I was hoping the she would just mess around with me at home but she lulled me into a false sense of security and started 'doing' my face rather than the shop assistants (told them she was fine!).
