Stepping Into the World of Drag Fashion and Makeup

Telic Thoughts - Wed, 2021-01-27 10:27

In the past few years, drag has enjoyed mass popularity thanks to growing acceptance for various forms of art and self-expression. It’s a common misconception that only men can wear drag, but there are many drag subgenres. The kind of drag mostly seen on popular shows like RuPaul’s Drag Race is known as “drag queens”, where men dress as women and adopt more exaggerated female features and behaviours. Another type of drag is when women dress as men, known as “drag kings”. Some women also do drag by adopting the same exaggerated makeup and parodying what drag queens do, and these are known as “bio queens”. For this article, in particular, we’ll be focusing on drag queen or bio queen style makeup and fashion.

Find your style

Drag queens are known for their individualistic style. The whole point of drag is to shake up the norm, so there are no rules to what you can wear. If you’re just doing drag as a hobby, you can experiment with the clothes available in your wardrobe, or you can shop around thrift stores to build an outfit. If you have the talent for it, you can even sew your own costumes. However, if you’ve decided to become a more serious performer, you might want to consider investing in lace wigs and reaching out to designers to help create better costumes.

Practice with makeup

Drag queens use a ton of makeup. Part of this is to emphasise the illusion of femininity. Most drag queens use makeup to hide certain masculine traits and look softer and more feminine. Exaggerated features and colourful looks are also helpful for drag queens who perform on stage. Other times, drag queens use makeup just to have fun and not necessarily look like a woman. Again, there are no hard and fast rules to drag queen makeup. It all depends on what you want to accomplish. There are countless tutorials online on how to do different types of drag looks, so you are spoiled for choice regarding learning how to do your makeup. You don’t have to worry about getting heavy-duty stage makeup or high pigment just yet. Even drugstore makeup is sufficient for practice and experimentation

Pin down your drag identity

Drag queens say that doing drag is like stepping into another person’s body. Some drag queens even have a name for their drag selves. It can be quite liberating to have an opportunity to be someone different. If you’re usually a quiet and meek person, maybe invent a drag persona that’s louder and more aggressive.

Drag serves a wide range of purposes, from entertainment to self-expression. More people are being introduced to dramatic and exaggerated makeup alongside artistic and creative costumes, so it’s an exciting time for the beauty and fashion industry. If you’re hoping to jump into the drag scene, try to go for your own unique style and persona instead of following what your favourite drag queen is doing. Drag’s motto is individualism, so forge your own path.
