While all us RuPaul fans are waiting for series 7 of Drag Race to start, I thought I’d crown my own winner of each season…for their makeup. Drag makeup is a lot more complex than anything girls have to go through on a saturday night. Drag Queens have to transform their face from male to female which takes a lot of illusion and painting skills. Just watch any of the many transformation videos available on youtube. In fact I learnt some of my best makeup tricks from Drag Queens, but I have never had to know the ordeal of covering my beard, glueing my eyebrows down or contouring my face from a male shape to a fierce female.
So without further ado, here are my list of America’s Next MAKEUP Superstars, season by season.
Starting with Season One:
Nina’s punk glam look went down very well with the judges, and she made it into the final two. She did admit to getting up at 5am the morning the contest started to paint her face, but it pays off. Her face is a work of art.
Raven knew how to beat a face. She looks like a Mac face chart.
Being a professional makeup artist, Raja had all the other Queens beat in terms of makeup. I rooted for her the second she walked in the door.
Oh, season four. This may be my favourite season. I was a Sharon Needles girl from day one, however on this series, nobody beat a face like Chad and her Cher realness.
Purely for this black and white reunion look. My jaw hit the floor. Also, Alaska should have won…but that’s none of my business
No, I’m totally kidding. I would have say the best makeup of this season goes to:
For doing something different.
But out of all these, I have to say my over all Makeup Superstar has to be
Thankyou Drag Race for continuing to inspire, can’t wait to see was Season 7 brings.
