1. “You’re wearing make-up, sooooo… You’re gay, right?”
News flash: sexuality and how you express yourself have nothing to do with each other. And while your ignorant ass is over here making assumptions, I can tell you: asking something like this only makes you look dumb. There are plenty of girls who don’t care about make-up, and believe it or not, there are quite some straight guys who like to use make-up to look their best. Also: assuming someone’s sexuality is almost always based on prejudice and stereotypes, so you might wanna reconsider doing that.
2. “Oh. My. God. You do make-up so much better than me, even though I am a girl!”
Look, we get it, you mean this as a compliment. And it is, really! Well, at least the “you’re good at make-up” part. Thing is: make-up skills don’t come with your gender. At birth, you don’t get a package of talents, catered to what’s between your legs. Not all girls are good at make-up, like not all boys are good at sports. And within your compliment, there’s a sense of you expecting men to be less good at make-up, while the man you’re complimenting has probably worked his ass off to become as good at make-up as he is. If you want to be good at something, you have to practice, and literally everybody can do it, if they work for it.
3. “That’s waaaaaaay too much make-up for a boy!”
Honestly, it doesn’t matter if you say this to a man or a woman, it’s just annoying and unnecessary AF. It just isn’t any of your bussiness what I put on my face, because, you see, IT’S. MY. FACE. Not yours. And if you ask me why I’m not going for a more natural look, it’s because I don’t f*cking feel like it. If I want to look glammed for the godz every day, that’s my decision, and if it bothers you, you can exit stage left. BYE!
