How to do drag king makeup
1. Use a dark color to create shadows
2. Careful not to over highlight
3. Make sure its smooth! And clean
4. Guys have longer eyelashes, but don’t give yourself long girly eyelashes. Light, light eyeliner… Use feather strokes for your eye brows and get a color close to your color (or darker)
5. This is how i did it, different men have different facial hair. To get a more realistic look use fake hair over the shading… Also, if you are only using color use a thin brush and use feather strokes to give a beater texture

- i am a new drag king, i watched a lot of tutorials and saw a few diagrams and then combined them into this

Love Love Peace Peace: Vulcan Edition! (With an IDIC mirror ball)
Based on this post (and requested by @aceofwands)! 

In Alchemy, The Hand of Mysteries holds the keys to divinity and invites you to discover great secrets! All the symbols represent different elements, their various abilities, and spiritual significance. Very cool stuff.
