What a drag: make-up collab
Yaaay we finally made it happen!
Me and Lidewij teamed up to transform ourselves from women, into men, dressing up as women.
I asked maybe? She yelled YES!
The nerves did get to me because as far as beauty make-up goes, drag queen skill level is over 9000.
Watch me transform from Anouchka Wijnings into Babushka Kumquat:
It felt as though Babushka needed glitter, false lashes, and loads of contouring.
My inspiration is Detox from RuPaul’s Drag Race, with his random pops of glitter and color on the face.
Here’s what came out of my brushes:
And you know what?
All those layers felt great!
Well no they didn’t, I felt every move I did pulling away at my skin.
BUT embodying a different persona felt great..
I do feel like my ring had some say in the colors I ended up using for some reason..
1) prime & white liner
I primer with Essence I Love Stage again, and that white pencil is an old Max Factor one.
Not cruelty free but it’s so old I think it might start using itself as a walking cane soon.
2) inner corner highlight
As white on the inner corner I used Manic Panic’s Virgin Pressed Powder.
3) purple wing
Inglot’s DS 494 went all over my outer corner, in my crease, and winged out.
3) black base to the wing and upper lashline
That black with red sparkles from Inglot again! This baby is AMC 62. ^_^
4) drag liner
A lot of drag queens point the liner downward in the inner corner to make their eyes appear bigger, and so did I!
Mud’s Cake Liner in Black did the trick.
Besides that I took it over the top lashline as well and winged it out.
5) blue on the lower inner corner
6) mascara and lashes!
Holy crap those lashes are nice, i’ll have to write a review on them..
Seriously I see it as my duty to share the beauty of them up close and personal…
7) GLITTER TIME
First off some LIT Nightlife!
And then some 2True glitter liner in blue!
So my face was pretty much sealed shut with:
MUD’s cream foundations are insane.. they’re honestly great.
I just used my normal shade all over first, CB 2.
Then I mixed in a bunch of MUD Yellow Light highlighter to pull some areas forward.
For contouring I used Shading 2, but Shading 3 is a little more grey so that would’ve probably been better!
4) highlight powder
Magic Panic’s Virgin White pressed powder is only just white enough for us pale people. ;)
4) skin tone powder
Afterwards everything was blended out with this Essence Pure Mineral loose powder.
2B’s Blush 04 is a pretty – as – a – peach coral shade.
OCC’s Lip Tar in Trollop!
Because a drag queen asks for some trollop, WERK! ;D
Check Lidewij out right here!
She recreated one of my favorite looks from Lineysha Sparx and transformed it into a wearable “soft drag” make-up as she calls it.
What a great idea!
The thing that surprised me most about the heavy face application is how it looked insanely heavy in real life but photgraphed really well.
Another lesson learnt!!
I hope you liiike!
