Whether you’re a pro about to battle in out on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK or a baby drag looking to get your first gig in the drag world, a handy guide of some of the best makeup for drag can never do you wrong. There are so many elements to drag makeup that having a concise list with examples always comes in useful.
I’ve broken drag makeup down by areas of the face and offered – where I can – both higher-end and affordable options for those just starting out in the drag world.
If you’re a drag queen, a drag enthusiast or even just someone who likes dressing up, then finding an affordable but quality drag wig has never been easier. With the rise in popularity of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, access to unstyled drag wigs is just a click away.

The casting call for RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Season 3 has already closed, and with filming likely to begin some time soon, I thought I’d try offering my opinion on who I believe should be on the BBC Three drag reality show.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year or so, it’s very likely that you’ve heard of the brand What a Drag. They’ve taken the drag world by storm with their 301 lashes appearing everywhere – with even Willam of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 4 fame endorsing them.
For now, I’ll be covering the Lashes, and I’ll come back to the What a Drag wigs at a later date – so y’all better subscribe so you can find out what I have to say.
If you are a burgeoning drag king, queen or adjacent, it’s very likely that at some point you want to start getting paid for it. Drag ain’t cheap sis, and unless you’re getting onto RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, it’s very unlikely that it’s going to pay for itself unless you get yourself a regular performance gig.
That being said, getting booked is a lot easier said than done. So if you’re not sure where to start, here’s my handy guide for how to get booked regularly as a drag performer.
It’s been in discussions for ages (remember Jonathan Ross talking about it back in 2014?) but it seems RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is finally happening, coming to BBC Three in 2019. Of course, while this is all very exciting, the main question is “which queens are going to be on season one?”.
Who do you think made it to the list?
