Halloween series: DRAG QUEEN

Hello, I'm Iva Fetish :) (according to Google, that's my drag name. haha)
Thi is my last Halloween look and tomorrow I'm posting grande Halloween finale (nothing special, just a recap of all looks and maybe some last minute costume ideas).

So, I decided to do Drag queen inspired look. I already did one way back for The Penguin challenge, here.
Drag queen makeup is really challenging and hard to do, especially if you're a woman, I think. Because you need to look like a man who pretends to be a woman, but you really are a woman. Anyways, I love drag queens and I think their makeup is always a piece of art. That's why I decided todo it for my last Halloween look :)


I started with foundation, I applied Bourjois Bio detox foundation on my face. I mixed my Bourjois Healthy mix concealer with white foundation Barry M and applied it underneath my eyes to cover my under eye circles and to highlight that area. If you ever seen any drag queen, you probably noticed that this area is the lightest. It was hard for me to achieve that, because I'm pretty white, so I went over with NYX jumbo pencil in Milk to make it even lighter. I applied it down the center of my nose and extended it to my forehead. I blended it with my fingers. I set my whole face with Artdeco fixing powder.

(you can see highlighted under eye area)

Then I started contouring. I used two colours: Avon Translucent Tan and Catrice eyeshadow in Starlight Expresso. I contoured underneath my cheekbones, my temples, around my hairline, under my jaw line and blended it on my neck. I applied more fixing powder underneath my eyes to protect my face from any fall outs of an eyeshadow or glitter.

 
I primed my lids with Two Faced Shadow insurance.
I started shaping my crease with light brown, and went over with lighter berry eyeshadow. Then I went over with darker berry colour (I was building the intensity of eyeshadow, both shadows Sleek Chaos palette). Then I applied darker purple (Artdeco eyeshadow 288) and blended it in all those colours. It was a lot of going back and forth to achieve desirable look. Underneath my brows I applied NYX white Jumbo pencil and set it with Bourjois Blanc eyeshadow.
To intensify the crease I used matte black and blended it into other colours.

 
Underneath my eyes I used the same colours and did that "winged thing" in the inner corners. for the glitter I used Essence pigment in Broadway starlet with Essence eye base for pigments. I lined my eyes with Essence Gel eyeliner.
For my top false lashes I used H&M Extra long and for bottom I used eBay lashes with Duo lash adhesive.

Then I extended eyeshadow on the outer corner and blended it with my contour together. I used Catrice eyeshadow Bring me frosted cake and Bourjois Blance eyeshadow to highlight underneath my eyes, nose, above my lips and  forehead.
For blush I used that light berry colour from Sleek Chaos palette, the same I used on my eyes. I blended it in my contour. And if you're doing Drag, it must be intense!! (I actually wear a lot of blush on daily basis^^)

 
I over lined my lips with Deborah lipliner in 222. I also applied it in the corners of my lips. In the center I applied Sleek Pout Paint in Milkshake. Then I went back and forth to blend those two colours together. I applied clear lip gloss on top.
I didn't cover my eyebrows, because you know I'm not a fan of covering them, so I just tried to draw my arch higher. I used Catrice eyeshadow Expresso Starlight. And also brow bone highlight helped to make them look higher.

 
(I finally figure out how to take full picture of my outfit.haha)

I wore black tank top underneath this lace blue top. For bottom part I wore shinny leggings and VJ Style booties. I figured out that whole outfit doesn't look glamorous enough, so I added this faux fur "scarf", that I took from my jacket. After that I felt much more Queen-ish.
Earrings were a gift from my (now ex) flatmate. Thank you <3

Ok, I this is final step. Because men are flat chested, they need to fake cleavage. They usually wear silicone fake boobs, but I think the most important step is to highlight and contour. Here is the video: click (he starts explaining at 4:50).


"I'm fabulous, b*tch." :]

That's my last Halloween look! I hope you like all of them like I do. I had so much fun!
Which one is your favourite?
