Makeup Tips from RuPaul’s Drag Race Queens
Contouring and highlighting are a girl’s best friend
This is not just a trick used by drag queens, makeup artists around the world (and even that one girl Kim Kardashian) use contouring and highlighting to accentuate feminine and reduce masculine facial features.
Blend, blend, blend!
Blending is a crucial step when applying makeup. Whether it’s eye shadow, lips, contour or highlight, blending reduces harsh lines and softens your makeup.
Style Tips from RuPaul’s Drag Race Queens
Never wear ankle-length dresses.
If you’re going to wear a long dress, make sure it hits the floor!
Ankle straps are a big NO-NO.
Why wear a heel with an ankle strap and cut off your legs when you can go without and show off your long stems?!
If your favorite accessory goes well with every outfit, then wear it as often as you want to.
One necklace to rule them all. Because when it’s right, it’s right.
Sometimes, all you need is a little glitter.
Glitter makes everything look better. Duh.

No matter what your body type is, embrace it.
Whether you’ve got extra curves or none, embrace your body shape and love every inch of yourself. (Curves ARE optional.)
If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?
Everybody say love!
Don’t take everything personally.
Sometimes life can be a drag, but don’t let it get you down.
