And, let's face it, the most fabulous of faces belong to drag queens. Queens have long been the frontrunners in applying makeup and were well ahead of the curve for trends like baking, contouring and sharpening features.

So naturally beauty junkies flocked to their Youtube channels to absorb knowledge and master new secrets.

Whether you're a beauty expert or you have NFI what to do with a contour palette, there's something utterly mesmerising about watching a makeup transformation.
