The drag scene is finally getting the recognition it deserves and what better time to celebrate than during Pride month. Of course, we can't celebrate as we usually would, but it doesn't mean we can't have fun creating fabulous makeup looks in the comfort of our own homes.

That's why we've collated our top ten favourite drag queen beauty looks to help us recreate some of the glitz and the glamour. Just remember to add plenty of flair and the bigger the lashes the better!

1. Jaida Essence Hall

Obviously, first on the list is Season 12 winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Jaida Essence Hall, with this beautiful blue number. Test your skills by using bright blue eyeshadow hues, big false lashes and plenty of bling.
