Who says men can’t wear makeup? While several preconceived notions about how a particular gender should behave and dress exist, there are several influencers across social media platforms that have been challenging such stereotypes. Sonam Kapoor showed her support to one such male influencer who is helping change the narrative about men wearing makeup, and attempts to normalize it. Ankush Bahuguna is an Instagrammer who makes fun content on social media and often posts makeup tutorials, stating how makeup and beauty products aren’t gender-specific, and are not just associated with women.
Sonam Kapoor took to her Instagram stories and shared one such video by Ankush Bahuguna that went viral on social media. The video shows Ankush Bahuguna applying makeup to his face, first beginning with a concealer, and later applying translucent powder using a brush. In the video, he asks why people associate beauty and makeup with only women, and why people define masculinity in a way that they can’t do girly things. He adds that makeup is a personal choice, and no one should have the authority to tell others about how to be a man or a woman. Check out the video below:
Ankush Bahuguna has also previously shared similar videos speaking about men and make-up. A few weeks ago, he had shared pictures in eyeliner, and had tweeted, “It’s not my eyeliner that scares you, it’s my freedom to wear it that scares you. You play by a rulebook and I don’t and that makes you insecure. This really isn’t about me, this is about you.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Sonam Kapoor was last seen in the film ‘The Zoya Factor’ with Dulquer Salman. She will reportedly be collaborating with Sujoy Ghosh for his next project.
