We live for a dramatic drag transformation, especially when it involves legends doing it. So when we heard that Violet Chachki and Jackie Aina would be teaming up, we were all ears. For almost 15 minutes we tuned into the absolutely glamorous duo turn Aina into a drag queen that we couldn't have seen coming if we wanted to.
The end result was an outrageous drag tutorial complete with no eyebrows, insane wigs, and talks about even more collaborations. We got all our life watching this, and we're sure you will, too.
So what happens when the two collide?
A drag transformation, of course, complete with Aina being completely morphed into a new woman. In an over-the-top tutorial, Chachki takes Aina's looks to brand-new heights, and the commentary is absolutely hilarious. Chachki walks us step-by-step through the traditional drag makeup process, and it's equal parts enlightening and enjoyable.
First came a mean contour.
"I love how she just changed her position for this contour, that's when you know it's serious," Aina said. Chachki responded with a little bit of drag history. "Drag makeup influenced beauty makeup, and then beauty makeup influenced drag makeup, so it's like full-circle. Because the drag queens were highlighting before the beauty industry was," she said.
Of course Aina had to say bye-bye to her natural brows.
While many think that drag makeup requires applying glue in the direction of the eyebrows, Chachki let everyone know that that's not the case. After applying against the grain and smoothing them down, Aina's eyebrows were concealed seamlessly, and she was visibly shook. However, we must say Aina actually looked pretty good.
Many steps later, the wig finished it all off.
You're not truly a drag queen unless you have a killer wig, and Chachki came through with the perfect white 'do. Aina was amazed by the structure and the intricacies of the look, and she became even more amazed when she found out she could keep it. She joked that she would keep the wig on one of her mannequins and wear it every Friday.
Aina ended up completely unrecognizable.
But completely fabulous. "I feel like your niece now; I feel like you hatched me," Aina said to Chachki. They teased at another video in which Aina will have to put Chachki in drag, and we're completely here for it. We need the collab to hurry up and come, because we're getting impatient.
