We’ve got to give it to this guy with his absolutely fabulous face beat and perfect smize.

We understand some people aren’t quite used to the idea of men wearing make-up.

But look, we’ve got to give it to this guy with his absolutely fabulous face beat and perfect smize.

Unfortunately, Scott Laplanche’s employers didn’t think so and he was rapped over the knuckles for his powder and paint.

The store worker, from Yorkshire in England, hit back at his superiors in a fuming Facebook post – which has since gone viral.

“Earlier on in the week I came to work as my fabulous self and was told to take off my make-up,” Scott wrote, noting that the store never had a clear and written make-up policy to begin with.

“I was quite shocked. After I refused, I’m getting told to tone it down? Excuse me? Tone it down? You can’t tone down a masterpiece.”

The 20-year-old explained in the post that while he enjoyed the full support of management in the past, it’s the new management team who wasn’t quite feeling his beauty enhancers.

“I’ve been working here for about 8/9 months and I’ve never been reprimanded on my make-up before. Actually quite the opposite. Some managers have supported me and complimented my make-up.

“However recently we’ve had to go under new management.”

And it was under the new administration that Scott was told to tone it down.

He further explained that he contacted the company’s HR department to lodge a complaint, but after a week with nothing more than an automated email as a reply, he decided to take his grievance to social media.

“I won't change my appearance for anyone. And I don’t expect anyone to do it either.

“Whether this makes people like my store manager uncomfortable, then that sounds like their problem.

“This is 2017 and people need to become more aware, educated and tolerant of the LGBT community and men wearing make-up in general.”
