Prep Your Canvas

Before diving into drag queen makeup, it’s crucial to start with a clean and primed face. This ensures your makeup stays put and looks flawless through and through.

  1. Cleanse and Moisturise: Start with a gentle cleanser to remove any impurities. Follow up with a hydrating moisturiser to prep your skin.
  2. Prime: Apply Uroparis primer to create a smooth base. This helps to minimise pores and allows for a more even makeup application.

Foundation and Contour

Drag queens are known for their flawless complexion and sculpted features. Here’s how to achieve that look:

  1. Foundation: Use a full-coverage foundation to create the perfect canvas. Apply it evenly using a makeup brush for a smooth finish. Choose the perfect brush for your style from the Uroparis Foundation Makeup Brush Range.
  2. Contour: Contouring is essential in drag queen makeup. Use a darker shade to define your cheekbones, jawline, and forehead. Blend well with a contour brush from the Uroparis Countour Brush Range, for a seamless look.
  3. Highlight: Apply a lighter shade on the high points of your face – the bridge of your nose, under the eyes, and the forehead. This adds dimension and brightness to your face.

Dramatic Eyes

The eyes are the focal point of any drag queen makeup look. Here’s how to make them pop:

  1. Eyeshadow: Choose bold, vibrant colours that reflect the look you’re aiming for. Apply a base colour over the entire lid with the correct Uroparis brush for flawless application. Then use darker shades to create depth in the crease.
  2. False Lashes: Uroparis offers a range of false lashes perfect for drag looks. Opt for lashes that are full and dramatic to enhance your eyes. Apply them carefully along the lash line using lash glue. Top pick for the best looks: Uroparis PRO Faux Mink 3D Range.
  3. Eyeliner: Use a liquid eyeliner to create a bold wing. This adds drama and definition to your eyes.
  4. Brows: Shape and fill in your eyebrows to frame your face. Use an eyebrow pencil or powder that matches your hair colour.

Sculpted Lips

A bold lip is a must in drag queen makeup:

  1. Lip Liner: Outline your lips with a lip liner to define their shape. Overline slightly if you want fuller-looking lips.
  2. Lipstick: Fill in with a vibrant, long-lasting lipstick. Use a Uroparis lip brush for precise application.

Finishing Touches

Complete your look with these final steps:

  1. Blush and Highlight: Add a pop of colour to your cheeks with a bright blush. Highlight the tops of your cheekbones for an extra glow.
  2. Set Your Makeup: Use a setting spray to lock in your makeup and ensure it lasts all day.
