  • they work harder at it. my grampa is transgender (he is now a woman) and he works way harder at it than any woman i have met before. he spends more time putting on his make up than teenage girls.

  • They don't all do that - trust me - go to a few drag shows and you'll see clearly that there are just as many queens that don't know anything about makeup as there are women who don't know anything about a car engine...

  • well, because they have to or else they will just look a mess lol. they are usually taught by a drag mother who has been doing it forever. they do look really nice in the end, but you have to remember that it's very dramatic makeup.... nobody would wear that for just everyday wear.

  • lol, not all do.. we had one at our school who was CLUELESS on clothes and make up.. although he could cut hair like no tomorrow (just couldn't style his own).

  • I am trying to think if I have ever seen a Drag Queen in person and I don't think I have. I went to church with a man who was transitioning to become a woman, but that isn't the same, really. I think most Drag Queens see it more as a character, stage makeup, so to speak. Maybe that is why they look good, because they don't do it often, so they take their time applying? I don't know.
