My inspiration is from the famous Irish drag queen Panti bliss. Rory O’Neill, also known by his stage name as Panti. Panti Bliss is a drag queen and gay rights activist from Ballinrobe, County Mayo, Ireland. Panti regularly hosts the annual Dublin Pride celebrations, which take place in the month of June every year.

Step by step:
I brushed my models eyebrows up with a spooly brush with pritt-stick on it.
I then used my decanting tool to apply 3 layers of pritt-stick flat on the brushed up eyebrows.
I then concealed the eyebrows with a salmon colour I made with my supercolours.
I then powdered with the NYX banana powder.
I then applied the Inglot 41 foundation all over the face.
I then applied the NYX concealer under my models eyes centre of the nose, forehead and chin.
I then used the super colours for my dark contour.
I set the concealer with the NYX banana powder.
I contoured under the cheekbones, top of the forehead and edges of the nose.
I set the dark contour with the NYX contour palette in the darkest shade.
I then highlighted the cheekbones, tip of the nose and Cupid’s bow using the Inglot sparkling dust (02)
I then outlined the brows on the forehead and gave them a high arch dramatic look.
I then filled it in with the gel liner 16.
For the eyes I used the highlight shade from the NYX contour and highlight palette and applied all over the lid.
Then for the crease I used a shimmery purple from the 35p palette.
Then for the outside of the eye I used a dark matte purple.
I then I applied gel liner 77 to the the top lid dragging it out dramatically to give the drag queen look.
I then applied the strip lashes from Penneys using duo glue and tweezers.
I over drew the lips with penneys nude lip liner to make the lips look plump and obvious they were overdrawn.
Then applied the koko lip kit all over the lips.
Hair and costume
I used a short blonde wig for the hair. I also used a hair clip to clip to the wig and sparkly gloves for hands. The model was wearing a purple top. And then I placed a black feather scarf around him.
I really enjoyed doing this look and happy with the end result. I made a mistake my trying to add craft glitter to the eyelid which I know now not to do again as it went everywhere. Overall I’m happy with the finished look!
