Putting on the Drag Makeup

Years ago, I had friends in New Orleans who had many friends who did drag. I was always fascinated by the makeup they did, since my training was in theatre and I concentrated in theatrical makeup. Here is a really good professional makeup artist who shares the tips for doing drag makeup.

The resulting makeup reminds me of the brilliant Moira Shearer in the 1948 film The Red Shoes--one of my favorite childhood films and perhaps the greatest filmed ballet I can think of.
