Being a Lipstick Lesbian

5.45K 4

A lipstick lesbian is simply a homosexual female that has a highly feminine style and attitude. It can be hard to shake off the stereotype that all lesbians have to appear masculine, but there is no reason why you can’t be feminine and like other women.

Here are some pointers to help.

First, The Lipstick Look. Its simple 1) make-up, 2) heels, and 3) ditch the trousers. Well, actually, there are no a strict rules on how to be a Lipstick Lesbian. You can wear as much or as little make-up you want.

With regards to heels, yes they are the perfect feminine shoe, but it’s your choice whether these are high-heels or a simple Kitten heel.

And trouser wearing, some femmes opt for skirts and dresses, some don’t. You don’t have to wear short or revealing clothing, just any shape or style that you are comfortable in and that makes you feel more womanly. Remember if it makes you happy, go ahead and wear it ladies.

Secondly Be Honesty. If you are asked whether you are straight, don’t just shy away – be proud and honest about your sexuality.

And Finally You don’t have to prove anything to anyone. Often you’ll hear people say you’re not gay because you seem too feminine, and many have the cheek to demand you prove it. You don’t have to prove it, because if they don’t believe you in the first place, why are they worth proving it to? However, you are free to do so if you choose. It is your own decision.
