In celebrating RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, we’ve complied five beauty and life lessons we’ve taken from the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.
1. Contouring, drag queens have had the most dramatic influence on the trending makeup technique, which is a technique devised by them to reshape and manipulate their more manly features to become feminine and defined. A strong emphasis also falls on skin beauty and the result of the make-up effect on stages and catwalks.
2. ‘Proportionizing’ and here is why we love it, it’s a term clocked on the franchise referring to the aesthetic balance and proportions of a drag queen’s silhouette. The clever use of undergarments like corsets, hip padding (shaped, flat sponges), imitation breasts, shape wear and stockings enables the queen to mould his body the be more curvaceous like shaped hip pads. Lest we talk of the missing sponge in your grandma’s couch!
3.Wig Culture: We all know someone who wears a wig, this is an international language of beauty and prestige, and everyone loves a Mama Ru wig which is always high-quality human hair or synthetic wigs and is a daily essential for women and drag queen all over the world. Several factors are to be considered depending on the look that wants to be achieved, bright colours, quality and discretion of the front lace (Very NB!), hair density and heat resistance are all point that make every head turn. Also, we can guarantee that there is never a bad hair day on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.
4.Be Bold and express yourself! The key makings of any competition winner, more especially on the RuPaul’s Drag Race UK are; charisma, uniqueness, boldness and fun, expression and talent. We’ve taken this as a lesson for anyone thinking there’s anything average about being a Drag Queen , because by borrowing these basics principals you are guaranteed to stand out in any crowd or room, ,so sashay and slay - if life was a runway competition , those would be pertinent elements to win!
5.Life is a party dzaaarling! Regardless of how chaotic and hard life can sometimes seem, there is always a bright side, and with every bright side there should be a party. Think about how easy-going drag queens are and how much fun they always have. Take this in your stride the next time anything seems too difficult. Learn from the mistakes but always remember that life is a party dzaaaarling and nothing bad ever lasts forever.
