Makeup Monday Drag Edition: Adore Delano

Hello, lovelies!

Last month, I did a #MakeupMonday post inspired by Kim Chi. Because a bunch of people, myself included, really loved it, I decided to make Makeup Monday Drag Edition a monthly series. So, here’s a look inspired by another of my favorite Ru girls: Adore Delano. She’s fabulous, so go check out her Instagram.


I started this look with my everyday face. I used ColourPop’s Dume and Gummy Bear, which are featured in Makeup Monday ColourPop Sculpting Stix Review . Next, I used their Super Shock Cheek in Fanny Pack and Poolside to intensify and set the highlight and contour, respectively. I also used SSC in Jelly Fish for my blush.


For my eyes, I used ColourPop’s Super Shock Shadow in Straight Trippin’ in my crease and outer corner, Cornelious to blend, and Puppy Love as a highlight. I lined the upper and lower lids with my favorite black felt-tip eyeliner from Sephora. Finally, I blended more Straight Trippin’ under my bottom lash line.



While the glue on my favorite Sugarpill lashes, Precious, was getting tacky, I overlined my lips with ColourPop’s Lippie Pencil in Bichette. I also filled them in with their Lippie Stix in Fighter. I don’t usually overline my lips, but I couldn’t do an Adore Delano look without doing so.

I am obsessed with the final look. As you can probably tell from all of the selfies, I was really feeling myself. I’ll probably do this look in my everyday life. However, I probably won’t overline my lips. Even though they look great in pictures, I couldn’t handle how they looked in the mirror. Thanks to Adore Delano, I feel ready to party.

    I don’t but I LOVE the lippy!

  • Gorgeous babe! I’m the same way. For makeup in photos I’ll be a bit more dramatic but in real life I’ll tone it down.

    • Thanks! Super dramatic makeup is fun, but it’s not always fun to go out at 10 am looking like a crazy person. Lol

  • Hi Cassie!
