Make Up Tips from Drag Queens!  

Saturday, April 14, 2012

Hola Goddesses,

A few weekends ago, My friend Mia and I went to see my favorite drag queen Kenya Michaels.

Me, Kenya Michaels & Mia

(Follow Kenya on Facebook and Twitter: @Kenya_Michaels). 

Kenya has recently appeared on the fourth season of RuPaul's Drag Race on LogoTv and she is by far my favorite out of all the Puerto Rican queens that have appeared on the show. Her make up and overall look was always flawless. Kenya performed in my city and I had to go see her and ask her about her make up secrets. I was able to watch her perform, which was amazing, and also got to do a meet and greet after the show. She is so beautiful, talented and down to earth! Kenya stated that she would soon be doing YouTube videos about her make up and I was super excited. One tip she gave me was to make sure that after I apply my concealer, that I do not blink my eyes or look down before I apply my powder to set the concealer.

I also met a queen named  Saellah V who gave me a huge make up tip that I have been testing for the past few weeks.

I asked her how queens keep their base foundation looking fresh after performances and all day wear.  She said, "Milk of Magnesia, girl".  What? I had to find out more about this. I did a search on YouTube and Google and came up with tons of information on how women use milk of magnesium to help oily skin.  

I tried Saellah's make up tip these past few weeks and it works!!!  First, I wash my face and apply my moisturizer as usually.  I let the moisturizer sink into my skin for a few minutes and then I use a foundation brush to apply the milk of magnesia.  I let it sink in for a few minutes and then follow my normal make up routine.  The oil production of my skin is down to at least half of what it was; I only have to blot my skin once or twice a day as oppose to every hour.  

We also met a queen named Gia who is a make up artist at MAC and who painted herself PERFECTLY!  

I had a blast and can't wait to go to my next drag show and get more tips from these fabulous queens!

Love, Peace & Lip Gloss!
