Juju Inspired Make Up

Due to technical difficulties I will not be able to post a video kittens 😦 I am so sorry but I have tried everything possible to fix it. Some of the clips that I recorded don’t work in the editing software I use.

I can watch them in Windows Media Player and VLC but when I try to put them into Adobe Premiere an error comes up. I don’t understand what’s wrong with it but I apologise profusely.

I will upload a few more photos and include a list of the products used to achieve a Juju look but this is the best I can do.

Jujubee Inspired Make Up

Hey everyone! Sorry it’s been a while since my last post but I have been revising hard for exams. A law exam at that 😦 It was tough going chica’s but I hope I’ve passed! Anyways, I did get a chance to film another one of my amateur drag looks. This time I chose season 2 finalist, Jujubee.

Words cannot describe how much I love Jujubee. I thought she was one of the funniest ho’s of her season. I do not stand alone in my love for Juju as she was made a contestant on the All Stars season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Juju did something for a young child recently that really pulled on my heart strings. The youngster has been bullied for years due to not conforming to one gender. He had never met anyone who was like him before and Juju asked him if he was her ‘little princess boy’.

He replied yes with a huge smile on his face. His mother commented on how just meeting someone like Jujubee has made such a positive impact on his life.

Seeing the queens in this kind of spotlight really warms my heart. It reminds me that under all the lacefronts and all of the make up that their is a real person under there. Drag queens have much more of a purpose than to entertain. They are mentors for some and idols for others.

They remind us, queen or not, that it’s okay to be different and do your own thing. As long as you’re happy and not hurting anyone then who cares what others think.

Juju is an amazing queen and I hope I have done her some justice with my make-up look inspired by her! Here’s a sneak peak. Video coming soon 😀

P.S. No-one can read a bitch like Juju can, the library will always be open for her.

Jujubee Realness?

Paint me like one of your drag queens!

Hey kittens! Hope everyone is well 🙂 I have come up with a little series of videos entitled ‘Paint me like one of your drag queens’.

It’s going to be a series of videos were I attempt (I repeat, attempt) to do the make up looks of some of the queens from drag race.

I’m not particularly skilled at make up so be prepared for some hot messes. Nah, I’m just kidding (I hope). I’ve done my research by speaking to my friend who is a trained make up artist.

She has given me brief lessons on highlighting and contouring and what brushes to use.

Since I first watched drag race, I have been eager to learn how to paint like the queens. Not that it’s paint that I would wear very often, but I think it looks really fierce and elegant.

You never quite realise what a craft the art of drag is until you see the process that these men go through to give an impressive illusion of a woman.

The first queen I am going to portray is Miss Adore Delano. Adore is quite young and heavy with her eyeliner. I too like my eyeliner so I feel if you dragged up my make up then it would look something like Adore.

I was practicing today and I only done half of my face but here’s a teaser for my first video! Hope you like and continue to watch this space!
