Spring is on the horizon, and you know what that means: NEW TRENDS. If you’re tired of the winter, get excited. New York City-based drag queen Jan Sport is here to show you how to wear next season’s biggest color: lavender. But not on your body—on your face. Say what? Yeah, keep watching.
First, you gotta glue down those brows. Once they’re set, it’s time to werk. Ms. Jan Sport creates a purple base using a lavender cream foundation, then highlights her forehead, underneath her eyes, plus her cupid’s bow and her chin with a white cream foundation. She blends with a beauty sponge, then adds a darker purple to the contours of her cheeks, plus a lighter purple for extra definition.
The queen sketches her brows with a lavender pencil, then outlines ’em with a dark purple pencil and adds definition with a brown pencil. White cream foundation right along her brow bone provides a highlight, and an eyeliner pen creates the illusion of a few brow strokes. Genius.
Okay, here’s where her look gets a bit trickier. Jan Sport covers her entire lid with a lilac shade and then she adds a mauve hue on top for more depth. After drawing a sharp wing with an eyeliner pen, she creates a cut crease by topping her lid with a white cream eyeshadow. More purple shadow goes on the outer corners and lower lash lines of her eyes, and she tops it all off with white and purple glitter.
Now back to that contour. She carves out her nose, cheekbones, forehead and jawline with purple powder, then pack son some white powder rightttt underneath that cheek contour to really define it. You following along at home? Yes? Then you need to add some fake freckles with a white liquid eyeliner. And don’t forget about your lashes! Jan Sport coats hers with mascara before popping on falsies.
The final step is her pout, of course. Jan Sport draws her desired shape on with a black pencil, then fills in the middle of her lips with a purple lipstick and purple gloss. Pop on a purple wig to match, and voilà!
BRB, on my way to the drugstore to buy purple eyeshadow.
