Celebrity designer Saisha Shinda came out as a transwoman earlier this year. The designer decided to do drag makeup for Pride month. As it was her first attempt, it took her 3 hours to do just one eye. Sharing the picture of her look, she said she used a glue stick to flatten the eyebrows.
She recreated an iconic look by popular American drag queen Violet Chachki, known for winning season 7 of RuPaul’s drag race. Violet began performing drag when he was 19.
Drag makeup is an exaggerated form of makeup to imitate female gender signifiers for entertainment purposes. The objective behind the makeup is to transform the face into character. It has mostly been men dressing up as drag queens, during ancient times. Thus, in modern times, cisgender, transwomen, and non-binary people everyone is open to doing one.
The main narrative about doing the makeup is that boys can too wear makeup, so can girls, cisgender, transwomen, and non-binary people.
