July 30th is National Cheesecake Day and that puts us in mind of our favorite four sassy midnight cheesecake-loving confidantes - the Golden Girls!  The popular NBC sitcom broke ground in the '80s and early '90s with its depiction of independent, feisty, active women of a certain age. It lives on in syndication and has achieved cult classic status across wide audiences, including young people and Drag Queens. Mother RuPaul herself is said to enjoy relaxing with the Girls while preparing to shoot Drag Race segments.



Are you a Dorothy, a Blanche, a Rose, or a Sofia? Each character had her own unique style, look, and personality. That's just what you should be cultivating with your Drag! You don't have writers, costumers, and makeup artists like those famous actresses - you are your own artistic creation. Picture it!

So whether your Drag character is a snarky smartass, a sultry vamp, a wide-eyed ingenue, or a wisecracking imp, you'll find the materials and tools to bring your vision to life at DragQueenMakeup.com. If there's anything we learned from the Golden Girls, it's that there's nothing that can't be resolved with a piece of cheesecake and a pair of false eyelashes (why were they always in full face in the middle of the night?)
