As far as herpes is concerned chances of transmission of HSV 1 is theoretically possible from make up testers.

HIV is less likely to transmit from make up testers.It requires exchange of body fluids.

Hepatitis spread is less likely as it require blood to blood contact.

Chances of transmission increase if the person using the make up testers have open cuts or sores.

I hope this helps
