Be a Drag Queen

A guide by Ricky Pooski "cool" (Texas)

Products sampled from this guide:
Now there are certain steps to being a drag queen. The first would be eyeshadow. One guide to eyeshadow would be An Eye In Shadows and another would be Eye Candy: 55 Easy Makeup Looks for Glam Lids and Luscious Lashes. Now there are several other guide books for eyeshadow including Blue Eyeshadow Should Absolutely Be Illegal, Making Faces and Face Forward. Of course, particularly of interest might be Guy to Goddess: An Intimate Look at Drag Queens but that's more sociological.

Then you might want to think about the wig. California Costume Women's Seduction Wig might be for summer and then there's <product no longer available> . Now you have several different options including:
Lolita Wig in Black
Electric Blue Wig
Rubie's Costume Glamour Wig, Black, One Size
Rubie's Costume Red with Black Glamour Wig, Red/Black, One Size

But makeup is essential so back to the eyeshadow and foundations with Coastal Scents 88 Original Palette and <product no longer available> . Other options include

Coastal Scents 28 Color Eyeshadow Palette, Neutral
NYX Cosmetics Loose Pearl Eyeshadow Pigment 30 Colors
SHANY Studio Quality Natural Cosmetic Brush Set with Leather Pouch, 24 Count
