DECONSTRUCTING RUPAUL’S MAKE UP

Posted: October 22, 2008 in Beauty, Drag, Drag Make Up

I have this perfect picture of Rupaul and I want to copy her make up!  

This must be taken when she was promoting MAC!  

Perfect Beauty !!! 

  • Eye Make Up – the secret is in her eye make up.  Pigments of darkest brown and black.  Smoky but not too strong.  Black lashes.  Very clean upward eye-shape.  Properly brushed in and contoured.  Moss green contact lenses.  Dark lashes (without those glittery drag lashes) … Perfectly shaped drawn brown eyebrows, over properly pasted and hidden ones.  I guess like all the other drag queens, she must have drawn this using a shaped fork or spoon, to get that even perfect shape.
  • Nose – note the dark highlights (shadow) and the light on the ridges.  Just like the Asian drag queens, we have to do this trick in order to fake a more prominent thinner nose.  On the stage, this is really effective.
  • Lips – Almost nude pink but with dark chocolate lip liner.  Glossed.
  • Contour - properly contoured, BLENDED to perfection,  brown to golden blush. Probably MAC foundation.

 

I tried to get a sharpened image – to see how the photo looked like pre-photoshopped.  And I got the following which showed the works done !

    I tried doing her make up. You have to use MAC or Drag makeup – Kryolan – to achieve that matt effect!

    @ Kimmy
    I agree … every drag queen I know loves her act.

    @ Dee Dee
    Kryolan make up! Yes, that is a full coverage stage makeup that most drag queens use. They are quite expensive though!
