Drag Showgirl Makeup: Las Vegas World Cities series





Can I say that this is my favorite of the World Cities looks I've done without sounding like I'm tooting my own horn? VEGAS BABY!!! Think showgirls and drag performers, that's what inspired this look. Drag makeup can be seen as an over-exaggeration of feminine makeup. Many drag performers go even further with the contouring than I've done here, and cover their natural eyebrows and pencil them in even higher to give more lid space for the makeup. I decided not to cover my brows here, but it's an option of what you could do.

  17. Ich liebe Deine Stylings und mache sie sehr oft nach. Ich habe mir damals das Pinsel- und Make Up Set geholt, welches Du vorgestellt hast. Hast Du einen Shop, wo man denn dann einiges von dem, was Du verwendest, her bekommt?

    Bin ├╝brigens die Freundin vom Adrian, der war doch auch beim Event von Lilly meets Lola und hatte die Fotos gemacht :) Schaaade das ich da selber nicht dabei sein konnte.

    LG
