I’ve Been Watching Too Much RuPaul… Makeup Tutorial

I’ve been working nights recently so wearing makeup has been a thing of non-existence. It’s also meant watching a whole three seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race in less than 72 hours and with RuPaul comes great creativity. I was craving putting on a shit ton of makeup and ‘beating that face’.

What better makeup look to go for than a full-on smokey eye! If you have a party, glamorous date night or you’re simply going to wear it as I did to take the dog for a walk.. then here’s how.
