Love Drag makeup but have no idea where to start?

Been watching a lot of Drag Race lately?

Keen to channel the makeup stylings of Sasha Velour, Kim Chi or Violet Chachki?

Well, Yoann, the Melbourne based makeup queen, performance artist and queer legend is here for you!

Come and learn the key basics to create your perfect drag look!

No experience needed.

Come get cute with Yoann and Laneway Learning!

What we will cover?

In this lesson we will learn how to:

  • Different styles of drag eye makeup
  • What eye looks our favourite queens love to wear
  • How to create beautiful drag smokey eye looks
  • Where to purchase drag makeup essentials
  • There will be a live demonstration and then time for you to practice your new skills and receive feedback from your wonderful teacher

If you know how to block your brows, it would be a good idea to come with them already blocked so you have a bigger canvas to work with. But you can also come with your eyebrows as they are.

What to bring

  • Black eye shadow 
  • 2 or more eye shadow colours
  • Highlighter
  • Black eye pencil
  • Mascara
  • White cream or light concealer
  • Small blending brush
  • Eye blending brush x 2
  • Flat angle brush
  • Flat concealer brush

If you already own some makeup feel free to bring along and you will be able to practice the techniques you learn.

But no need to purchase any if you don’t already own them. You can just watch and learn.
