Hey!
I am doing a drag makeup this weekend, it is going to be very glam... of course. I have only done this kind of makeup one before, so I would love to hear some tips and advice. I tend to do quite natural makeup and I know this will not be a case... lol

Hi

when I had a project to do involving drag make up I turned to youtube, these links will give you the idea, also if you are able to watch it there is also Rupauls Drag Race.

time to break out the silly putty and sand paper!! haha

But seriously you need a heavy full coverage foundation, and a trick to hid the stubble blueness if there is any, use a cheap red lipstick and blend it into the foundation in the beard area.

I did drag way back when, I used about 5 sometimes more different colors of foundation to shape my face. from white to skintone to yellow to dark,dark brown.

for lashes use 2 sets together per eye ..it makes a big difference.

Thanks for those links! they were very helpful!!
So I did the makeup today and it went very well! I actually had so much fun with it and he was very happy!
The only thing I need to work on it covering the eyebrows. I tried the glue stick and it didn't really work that well so I am going to try some other options I saw posted here.
Thanks again for the advice!

I used some red to conceal the beard and it worked very well!
