Love for adorable pets, gossips, romantic comedies, and all sorts of cosmetic things are usually associated with women. Interestingly, that’s not the case. Men love girly stuff, although they firmly pass comments on things that women do. Heteronormativity dictates men to be firm, but there are times when they just can’t resist such things, and their femme side is equally amazing. From trying makeup to women’s perfumes, men have surely tried girly stuff at some point in their lives. So, here’s a brief list of femme things guys absolutely love and adore.
Cosmetic products and makeup have long been associated with women. It is predominantly a girly thing, but many young men are breaking the taboo around male makeup. Normalizing guys in makeup is important as they are ending the stigma of wearing makeup. The men’s cosmetics use also traces back to ancient times, such as ancient Egyptian men wore eyeliner, Elizabethans and Georgians applied face powder, and Romans used rouge. The trend died in Victorian times because of strict focus on the gender binary, but this trend has recently resurfaced, especially among the LGBTQI+ community.
