drag mother's day make-up hair lagoon femshayma
‘The looks is quintessential, it’s blue skin, a pink lip, and some sparkles because I have the under eyes of an 140-year-old wizard and I need to cover them with something sparkly. And the lashes are big because I'm a fucking drag queen’ – Lagoon Femshayma

Get up close and personal with these dragtastic Mother’s Day looks

Lagoon Femshayma, Ore-Ho, Petite Lamé, Hermione, Shea Khan, and Mahatma Khandi celebrate family in a new video on Dazed

It’s Mother’s Day today here in the UK, a chance to thank mothers – whether they’re your biological, adopted, chosen, or other – for their influence and how they’ve shaped you as a person. 

To celebrate, over on Dazed, a new video has dropped entitled ‘A Drag Mother’s Day Message’ featuring a host of queens discussing the importance of drag families and how their own personal ones have helped shaped them as creatives. To give you a behind-the-scenes look at the looks the drag artists created for the video, we asked them to tell us more about the inspirations behind them. 

So, whether you’re into a kinky Victorian schoolgirl vibe courtesy of Petite Lamé or a quintessential blue look from Lagoon Femshayma, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. 

Head to the gallery above to see all the looks and watch the full video here
