Beautiful vs Handsome

Could someone please tell me if I can use beautiful for men and handsome for women?

I wouldn’t recommend it because it’d sound odd.[YSaerTTEW443543]

You can use “handsome” for women who are older and have an air of authority. It doesn’t mean they’re masculine, but just that they’re powerful and good-looking.

It’s possible to use “beautiful” for men, but it often has a homosexual connotation.
