Earlier this year, when Shawn was a guest on Taylor’s Reputation Tour in Toronto, Canada, she posted a video of herself applying a glittery layer of makeup on his face while backstage.
Taylor then texted Shawn to ask if she could share the clip, and he agreed.

The article reads, “Swift was texting Mendes a cellphone video of them together, just to make sure he was cool with her posting it — a short clip of the night they were hanging out backstage at her Reputation Tour and she put her glittery eye makeup on Mendes’ face, to his delight. He told her it was fine without thinking, but later that night, he woke up in a cold sweat.”
Once the video was posted, the “In My Blood” singer had some regrets. “I felt sick,” he said. “I was like, ‘F–k, why did I let her post that?’ I just fed the fire that I’m terrified of.”
Shawn added that he grew up with 15 female cousins, “braiding hair and painting nails. Maybe I am a little more feminine — but that’s the way it is.”
