Makeup Workshops

How to prepare

This is your drag baptism, baby, and we're here to make it fierce and fabulous!

Since your mother will teach you a few techniques, it would be ideal for you to practice them in real time. The mother won't share all her material for hygiene reasons, but some things will be gifted to you. I have the feeling that you might have some makeup at home, so bring as much as you can.

To help you, I listed what would be ideal to bring.


Remember! If you feel unsure about anything, don't hesitate to ask, and Mother will help you!

What to bring


A portable mirror, like a shaving mirror


1. Powder Brush

2. Contour Brush
3. Eye Shadow Brush
4. Eye Shadow Crease Brush
5. Brow Brush
6. Angled Eye Shadow Brush

Glue stick

Children-safe paper glue from the office supply department


One foundation with medium coverage on your skin tone. These are a good example and is the one I have been using since forever.

Highlight and contour

Concealer or high coverage foundation for highlight (at least two tones lighter than the foundation). I have been using this one that I found at Normal and I am loving the results, also many participants in the last edition had it.

Compact powders

Two compact powders with two different tones for highlight (lighter at least two tones from the foundation) and contour (darker two tones than your skin).

Red lipstick

We have some tricks that we can use beyond the lips.


Black/brown pencil


Liquid eyeliner


Wipes to remove makeup and clean the brushes
