Ask ‘Drag U’s’ Pandora Boxx – It’s Final Exam Time!
First off, we’ve got a question about a big cover-up – finding the best foundation. An anonymous advice-seeker writes: “I want to start using foundation, but I don’t know what’s best for me. I don’t want to look overdone, but I have some redness that I need to cover up. What products do you recommend?”
Pandora responds: Foundation is tricky because it’s really a personal preference. Your best bet is to go to a makeup counter and ask the makeup artists there. One makeup brand I would recommend is MAC, which is amazing and has several different types of foundations for various types of coverage. Some other great brands are NYX Cosmetics (also a very affordable brand) and Trish McEvoy.
The appeal of Drag U is universal, and here’s a question from Terry McGrath from London, England. He writes:
“Hi, I’m a slightly chubby English gay man in London, England (and Pandora Boxx fan) and I’ve just got a first permanent-looking little red spot on my forehead. Should I give up any hope of love now?”
Pandora’s response: I’m so sorry that you’ve grown a third-eye. Kidding. But you really have to make light of things that you can’t possibly change. There are always great cover up cremes you can use like Dermablend. Or maybe glue a rhinestone there and go out and party. If it really bothers you then a laser treatment might be the option you want to go with.
Last but not least, here’s Twitter fan @Aquaventra, coming to us all the way from from Belgium! He asks what all drag princesses and wannabe drag superstars want to know: “What’s it like being in drag and how much pain does it really take to be gorgeous?”
Pandora says: Drag is very much like dressing up for Halloween, just on a more frequent basis. While drag isn’t exactly comfortable, it’s the price you pay for a night of glamour.
