Drag makeup as an art form is undefinable. And so it’s fair to say that here on Cosmo Queens, we’ve seen all sorts of transformations so far.

Remember the high drama hodge-podge of Vinegar Strokes? And Cheryl Hole's ultra femme technicolour dream-drag?

We’ve also seen Gothy Kendoll’s high-sparkle frost beat, and marvelled at Scaredy Kat’s harajuku, baby-queen tribute.

Enter our next queen: Divina de Campo, armed with a sh*t-load of blue eyeshadow (and contour sharper than Sasha Velour in a lip sync battle).

The drag hero was known on the series as a bit of an old school glamazon, bringing her glittering history in drag (plus heaps of experience and tough-love advice) to the group of queens.

No surprise then, that the legend herself turned up on the set of Cosmo Queens ready to slay with an aesthetic wink to Hollywood glamour with a camp twist (think Lana Del Rey meets 90s Geri Halliwell).

She doesn’t waste time pritt-sticking her brows - a hardcore OG like Divina obviously has them shaved - the perfect blank canvas for striking black brows, which she later feathers into a faux-fluff look.

Next up it’s double-winged liner, enhanced with eye-widening white pigment, and the world’s longest doe-eyed lashes.

A personal favourite moment, besides the repurposing of a contour brush for a karaoke mic? Divina's bold use of blush literally everywhere - cheekbone, temples, hairline, the lot.

It's a departure from the bronze or russet contour typically seen in drag, but we're totally here for the dimension and sunblazed chic it brings - especially when it's been knocked back with highlight.

We're also a massive fan of the way she contrasts the (brave) blue ombre eyeshadow with a red lip, topped with coral glitter dust. Finished off with a fiery balayage wig, half-up half-down, we're getting serious nostalgic Brit vibes. Anyone else suddenly want to watch Spice World the Movie?
