Top 5 makeup drag queens

by Staff writer



A man who deliberately dresses up as a woman for the purpose of entertainment or fashion or business is called a drag queen.

The process of getting into a drag character can take hours. A drag queen may aim for a certain style, celebrity impression, or message with their look.
