Dazed Beauty Entertainment Editor Aquaria shows us how to create a weeping Virgin Mary drag look just in time for the holidays – Hallelujah!

Praise be: just when we needed some inspiration for how to steal the attention of our families and friends this Christmas, our very own Dazed Beauty Entertainment Editor, Aquaria, has stepped in to save us. In homage to the mother of God herself, Aquaria has created a weeping Virgin Mary look out of not much more than some Kryolan TV paint sticks, a few Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes and a couple of homemade tears. And because the holidays are a time of giving, no matter what your faith, the RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10 winner has decided to share her process with us. To learn Aquaria's tricks of the trade, and how to dazzle like Mary, watch our tutorial below.
