Rock M. Sakura’s Pastel Tulle Look | Makeup Tutorial | RuPaul’s Drag Race


(upbeat music) – [Crew Member] Good morning. – Hey, everybody. It’s Rock M Sakura
from season 12-‘zees’ of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Today, I’m gonna show you how
to recreate my tulle runway, which is a beautiful
pastel unicorn fantasy. It’s gonna be super easy. You’re gonna see me go from this to this. (Rock gasping) Mm, oh, ah. (upbeat music) Whenever I do my makeup, I like to make sure I
take off all my clothes. I make sure to get
ready butt-ass naked, so we’re gonna take off
our clothes right now. (melodious ringing) (upbeat music) Use a disappearing
purple glue stick. Just go ahead and start
against the grain. Brush upwards. Since my makeup is so big, I
also glue down my sideburns. Big scrubbing circles. (Rock grunting) And a good cry always helps before you put on
your makeup, too. (hairdryer blowing) You wanna take your
translucent powder and hit your brows hard. Don’t move it around once you’re
packing that dust on there, ’cause you’re gonna
get oatmeal brows. There. (upbeat music) I’m going to put foundation
over my whole face, and also my boobous area. I have a shadow, a
midtone, and a highlight. I think that three
is a perfect number to get like a good gradation. You can fine tune with
your powders later. And once it’s all on
there, we’re gonna go ahead and take our beautiful
gay beauty blender and we’re just going
to beat that in. So I get to the neck, I
just swipe it downwards, ’cause when you do this
it kinda feels like someone’s punching
you in the throat. So, I’m gonna take
my brow pencil and I’m going to sketch
out my eyeliner first. And this is gonna take up
a fair amount of your face. Oh, that’s too big. We’re gonna do that
again (laughs). Okay (laughs). (chill music) And remember, this is like
complete anime fantasy face. So, just make sure that you
go over the top, you go big. If you wanted a refined
and clean version of this, you wanna look pretty, do
a Trixie Mattel tutorial. If you wanna look like Kim Chi
if she had a lot less talent and was a lot more
bloated, watch my tutorial. (chill music) And now that you look
utterly terrifying, we’re gonna use like this
really, really, really, really, really dark contour shade. And I’m gonna do a
little rainbow up here. I like to make sure that
whenever I do my makeup, it’s really geometric. I like to have very
exaggerated looking lines. I’ll do a lot of
contour right here, just in the center of the nose. We’re gonna blend it out
in a second. Don’t worry! So, now that I got
the contour on, we’re gonna go ahead
and blend that. For the cheeks I like
to keep that hard line, but I’ll blend it upwards. (chill music) There we go. And now it’s time to refine
everything with our highlight. And if you can’t get
your container open, just use your teeth because
they don’t look good anyway. (bottle poppiing) Let’s take a small
concealer brush and just refine the lines
that we were making before. (chill music) (Rock exhaling) (Rock laughing) Oh my God. And what I’m doing right here
is I’m silhouetting the nose. I’m making like a nice
triangle shape right here with the contour. (chill music) Once everything’s on,
make sure that you take your beauty blender and
let’s just refine that again. Ah, and you can already see
the woman coming through. I’m a woman! She’s coming through, and
she’s coming through hard. So, what had happened was I
was getting ready for Drag Race and my boyfriend
was helping me pack. Here’s the thing ladies,
if you ask your boyfriend to pack and they’re nice
enough to pack for you, you’re not being a bitch
if you wanna double check. Because what happened
was my tulle outfit was so big that we had
to switch suitcases. And all of my makeup
got left behind at home. So, I only had about 25%
of my normal makeup on set. But a queen makes
it work every time. So, the next step right now is
we’re gonna take our midtone and we’re gonna refine all
the things that need midtone. (chill music) When I first started
going out in drag, a queen had come
up to me and went, “Wow, you look gorgeous,
you’re so pretty. “It must be so easy
because you’re Asian, “you already look like a woman.” And I was like, “Excuse you.” Just because I’m Asian doesn’t
mean I’m not trying hard. So, I wanted people
to know how hard I was trying with my makeup. So, as the years went
by my eyes got bigger, and bigger, and bigger. And my self worth went
lower, and lower, and lower. (tongue clicking) Let’s go ahead and set
this down with powder. I’ll take one of
these like art brushes that you can get from
the dollar store. And just press it into these
angles that you created. (chill music) The more you let it sit, the more it’s gonna
bake into your skin. (chill music) Now that I finished with
my highlight powder, I’m gonna go in with
my midtone powder. We can just put this pretty
much all over the face. (pad smacking) I deserve this. And we’re done. This was my makeup tutorial. Thank you guys so much for
joining us today on VH1. Make sure that you swipe
up and, okay (chuckles). Brush it up. Now, we can go in
with our contour. Take a nice big fluffy brush. And just go in there. And then I’ll go back in
with the darkest shade, and I’ll bring it right here just on the end to create
the illusion of depth. This side turned out a
lot better than this side. (upbeat music) Trying it again. Perfect, let’s go ahead
and contour the chin. Just a nice rounded
brush on the chin. Make yourself really
look like a thumb. See? (chill music) Now, we’re gonna ahead and
add some blush to that. I’m gonna take three
shades, mix them together. And I’m gonna get right
here on my rosy cheeks. Here on the nose. Right where we did
our contour before. I’ll take the deepest
and the reddest shades, and I’ll go right here. Whatever is residual
on that brush and just add it into
the rest of the contour. A small bit of blush
is gonna really pop and add some color to your face. Let’s get in on that nose. So, take your darkest powder
right here, into the corner. At the top of the nose. And here again near
the tip at the bottom. So, once I have my darkest
shades on, I’m gonna go ahead and add my favorite
color, white (chuckles). I use a cream foundation
when I do my white. (chill music) Just review it, look
at your face as a whole and see if the silhouette
kind of matches. Take a very, very
super white powder. When I first started doing drag, I used baby powder to
set all of my white. And besides smelling
like a baby’s butt, I’m sure there is
lots of health risks. Blend that in with
some regular powder. Now, we’re gonna refine
it one more time. (chill music) And I like to get it nice and
skinny at the very, very end. While it’s still wet, I’m gonna
go in with a liquid white. (chill music) A liquid eyeliner is
more concentrated. Midtone powder. (chill music) Now, we’re gonna come back in
and deepen the contours again. When we add our final
dot that goes here, it’s gonna look like
it’s popping a bit more. I want things to look
like they’re super sharp, like I’m about to cut you. Cut you. Last part, take that
same white liner and just do a little
dot on your nose. Next level of nose
contour get it now, uh. So, what we’re gonna
do with our boobs today is we’re gonna do the exact
same thing we did with our nose. We’re gonna put white and
our highest highlights right here in the middle. And then we’re cut it
with our boob shape. This middle part right here
can be relatively lazy. Get on there. Oh my God (vibrating breath). Cream white. I know some people have a
hard time placing their boobs. And trust me, we’ve
all been there. I’ve had a boob here,
I’ve had boobs here, I’ve had boob down here, I’ve
had boobs on my shoulder. Don’t ask about that one. We’re gonna go ahead and
set the middle of this with our whitest white. And then on both sides,
the top and the bottom, we’re gonna wanna gradate
out with our lighter color. And then dust it off. And I’m gonna just
trace a circle. (upbeat music) Gonna take our midtone, we’re
gonna do a circle right here where the light would hit. Right here. And then you wanna blend it in. (upbeat music) Put the white and the highlight where I want it
the highlight-iest. And then I’m gonna set
the rest of the boob with this midtone powder. Brush it off. Last thing we’re gonna do is
we’re gonna deepen that contour on the boob area with a nice
little angled shadow brush. And then you can gradate
it out with a bigger brush. And you’re all good. (upbeat music) I wanted to do a
rainbow eyeshadow look because I couldn’t
figure out what one color to use on the whole outfit. I was just like, “Rainbow
is my favorite color anyway. “Why not just use
all the colors? “Why not just use every color?” So, what we’re gonna do is we’re
gonna take our little cream palette that is gross and dirty, don’t you dare zoom
in on this powder. (Rock chuckling) We’re gonna put a base down
of all these different colors. Just press it on there. In between your colors,
clean off your brush just a little bit
but not too much. If you leave a little
bit of the product on it, it’s gonna help
gradate the color. A little bit of
that green in there. They don’t have to
be in the same place. And we’re using the
blocking that we did earlier when we did the eyebrow pencil. We’re just creating a sticky
base for our shadows later. (upbeat music) Then once all your
colors are on, I’m gonna set that
with my white. (upbeat music) So, you can kinda
barely see the colors, but you know where
the colors are. And with a light,
light, light touch. (Rock yelping) Place it on your face. (upbeat music) My makeup aesthetic is
generally very manga-inspired, very graphic but also pastel,
light, airy, witchy, ethereal. I have so many outfits that
look like cakes and sweet rolls. We’re gonna use that same
white that we did before and we’re going to trace
that line that we had before. (upbeat music) Press, stamp,
stamp, stamp, stamp, stamp, stamp, stamp, stamp. (upbeat music) All right, woo, woo. Set that with a white. Liner, it’s really,
really, really black and you don’t wanna mess up. Put a fair amount of product
just on the edge of the brush. Then you’re gonna follow
that line that we did before. And what I wanna do is I’m just gonna
outline the shape first. We’re gonna follow
that curve we created. And once you got it all
lined out, just fill it in. (chill music) Uh, looks so good, I’m so happy, thank God I did not mess
up on camera (laughs). When I was getting ready to
like audition for the show and everything, I had
heard rumors that they had literally 25 minutes to
paint their whole face. Which I now know is a lie. But I was like, “Oh, they
only give you 25 minutes? “I gotta learn how to
paint in 25 minutes.” So, this makeup that
you’re seeing right now, I can actually do
relatively fast. Same white foundation. Oh, just moan a little bit
when you do this white part, ’cause this is
your favorite part. (chill music) Once you got your shape, you’re gonna go ahead and
take a nice dome brush. What I like to do is I
put it in the shadow. And because it’s round, it goes into the
contours of my face. I’m not gonna do that
again (chuckles). I’m so sorry everyone at home. We’re gonna do the same
shadow on top, underneath. I’m just gonna go
in with the shadows and I’m gonna have a
very, very light, light, light, light, light, light, light, light,
light, light touch. With this color, I’m gonna
refine this bottom edge right here and make
it look more linear. Ugh, I love this. Perfect, I’m going to extend
our liner from the top just a little bit into here. (chill music) So, about halfway through
is when I stop the black. And I’m gonna take
this small little brush that we were using for
the shadows earlier and blend that shadow down. Do you feel like a trash
fire with makeup on? That’s the look. We’re actually gonna
go on to our next step, which is kinda eyebrows. (finger snapping) I always tell people
that I have eyebrows but they’re underneath my wig. We can imply that there’s
some sort of brow there. I’m gonna take that same
white that we had before. And just like if I
had a normal brow, I’m gonna highlight
underneath it. (chill music) I’m gonna use my finger
to blend this down. Just like with everything, we’re gonna set it
with that white powder. Next thing we’re gonna do, now that we’re
done with our eyes, is our lips, our beautiful lips. (chill music) We’re gonna sketch that same
shape that we did earlier. (chill music) I’m looking for a nice
balance between the eyes and the lip. I like to do a little
clown flick up here. Make it a little bit more full. I like to do a cross right here ’cause it makes it
more even for me. (chill music) If you don’t need
to do the cross, and you can do it all
freehand by yourself, off because it’s my
tutorial and I need this. I need this. Now that we’re all mapped out, let’s do the highlight
over the top of the lip. White cream again. Set that again with white. (chill music) All right, everything is lined. What I’m gonna do is I’m
gonna bring my eyeliner in from the sides. These shadows here,
just on the corners, are gonna make it look
like my lips right here on this side are pushed back. Get in there with your fingers. Go ahead and put our
base lipstick on. (chill music) I wanna go for a nice
bright pink over here to kinda contrast with the very, very matte toned down
pastel look up here. And I actually
love to do shadows in place of actual
lipstick or gloss, because sticky lips always
get caught in your hair. You’re trying to lip sync. I’ve set the base
foundation now. And what we’re gonna do
is we’re gonna darken up the sides again,
but with powder. (chill music) One more time I’m gonna go in
with that liner, redefine it. (chill music) Okay, now I’m
highlighting my lip. And what I’m doing
is I’m taking white and I’m hugging
that liner up top. Just lightly feathering it out. (chill music) Blend it out. You’re basically just creating
a base for the next step which is, say it with me
folks, set it with white! (chill music) And now we’re gonna go back in and introduce
those colors again. I chose the right career. And I’m just going to gradate
it into the darker points of my face. We’re gonna clean it up. (chill music) (upbeat music) I take some colors and
I put ’em on the brush. Just at the top of my
cheeks, right over here. And I also like to contour right where I put
that white earlier. Medical grade adhesive,
they use this for surgeries. Take the end of your brush,
take a little bit of that glue. And you’re gonna wanna dab
where you want your rhinestones. One, two, three. The cream dries really fast. Gonna place ’em on there. I wish I could love myself as much as I love these
stones on my face. Now, we’re gonna
add our last ones. (chill music) And if you’re like me, and you’re a kicking
and bucking girl, you probably hate when your
earing get caught in your hair. So, you can always do what I do. On here, a little
bit of the cream. Boom. Now, we’re gonna add
some more glitter. I’ll take a holagraphic
glitter sometimes. I’ll take some on
my middle finger and I’ll just press it
into the face like that. Add some to the
whites of your boobs. I also like to use glitter paste because it’s super
easy to put on. And I’m just gonna put that
around the perimeter of my eye. Now, we’re gonna put
this also on our chest. I’m also gonna put
some right up here. Yes, it’s coming together! Once I get the glitter
on, it is over. The rest of you
guys in this room are gonna die because
I’m so fabulous! I’m taking a
chunkier glitter now. All right, add
some to your chest. (chill music) Now it’s time for eyelashes! (upbeat music) I don’t have enough
money to spend on getting these bottom lashes. So what do we do? We make our own lashes. All you need is some
construction paper and some scissors. And that little triangle
that we just created, we’re gonna cut that in half. Some of that cream from before. On your black. Now, it’s time for
these big-daddy lashes. Now, I made these myself. They’re eight pairs of
eyelashes stacked together. And I’ve added more
construction paper just glued onto the back
with some weave bond, which is what we’re gonna
use to adhere to our eye. And then I place
rhinestones on the lashes just for that extra fantasy. This stuff takes literally
20 seconds to dry. I’ll place it right here,
into the socket of my eye. And then I’ll pull
the front forward just a tiny bit like this. So, just this part
is touching my lash. And up here is in my socket. Remember that
hairdryer from earlier? Here she is again. (hairdryer blowing) We’re not even relatively
close to my eye. Like, full-on this is
like a different zip code. So, I like to do
for my under-eyes, I’ll take a nice
eye cream pencil. One that’s specifically
for an eye. (upbeat music) And with that, the face is done. I’m gonna get my final look on. And I will be right back! (Rock coughing) (tongue clicking) You guys, this is my
tulle runway look. I love this because not
only am I living my full, ethereal fantasy,
I’m also in a garment that me and my
friends made together. And I look like a unicorn
sharted all over the place. If you learn something from
this video, you can dress up as Sakura, or you can come
up with your own version of you that makes you happy
and you wanna show me. (upbeat music)

  1. You were robbed girl. Aiden's style is simple, I get it but that does not cut it in a flamboyant show like this. THE THIEVERY.

  2. I just love her so much! She is one of the sweetest queens to ever grace us on the show! With all the nastiness of season 12 drama so far I’m so glad we have Rock.M to give us life

  3. I think the 😥😭😢before makeup app is a legit thing!.. My skin/face ALWAYS 👀’s it’s best after I’ve had a good ol’ hard af BooHoo Cry!!!

  4. Producers be like:
    We're just adding Rock M to the cast to push for "minority audience" support. Just make sure she doesn't last long

    Audience: Living for her until…

    Producers: Rock M gets eliminated….

    Audience: Riots and revolts

    Producers: Oh we screwed it up. I guess this "Anime thing" is not so unheard of…

    Everywhere in the world besides the US: yeah…we've been watching Anime since the 90s

    Producers: …………..we thought it was only the Yaoi thing…

    Everywhere in the world besides the US: PFFFF…Sailor Starlights, Shun Andromeda and Pisces Aphrodite from Saint Seiya, the whole cast of Sakura Card Captor and Kamatari of Rurouni Kenshin were pretty scandalous at the time, episodes got censored and banned after the first airing SO….

    Producers: ………..

  5. She was the only reason I was going to start watching this season but I saw she was sent home so now im not lmao

  6. Rock is just so bubbly and adorable. I want to be best friends with her. She’s the type of person you would want to go to if you’re down and need a pick me up. The fact she was sent home EP 2!? Beyond outrageous. ROBBED

  7. Of all the queens who have ever been brought back I think she is the most deserving ever!!!! BRING BACK THE ROCK!!!!!!! I honestly thought she was gonna go all the way to the top and I was heartbroken to see her eliminated when we still have a sexual predator on the show!!!!!

  8. I'm hoping she comes back in the show like Trixie did in her season and last longer than three more episodes, then take Sherry Pie's place in the finale. A gurl can dream.

  9. I still think the goth queen should’ve been in the bottom instead of her but oh well. At least she gained a bigger fan base. She joins amongst the most unfair eliminations.

  10. I’m Japanese and I’m so proud of her for spreading Japanese anime culture and just making everyone love her! I love you Rock!! of course no matter you’re not Japanese!! 日本来て下さい!

  11. wait wait wait wait wait… she can paint this all in 25 minutes???? bitch i can’t even do a full beat on my face in half an hour. this is sorcery

  12. I just have to say that although she leans heavily towards the "clown" category of drag queens, Rock M. can paint cleavage like no other.

  13. The producers giving contestants only 25 minutes to paint IS a lie. They only give you ten. Somewhere else in the restricted area of the same studio, RuPaul is having her own makeup done by Raven and she gets 4 hours.

  14. My heart broke into pieces when he start crying like his runways is not that bad

    WE NEED TO SEE ROCK M SAKURA IN ALLSTARS!

  15. You are so adorable and so loving. I just adore you. So proud that you are prepping our SF Bay Area 🤩🤩🤩 I just know that great things are in store for you!!!!! ❤🧡💛💚💙💜💗

  16. YASS The winner of All Stars 6!

    But for real, I have actual hyper anime tiggobiddies and I never though to highlight like that 🤯

  17. how the hell did she get sent home when aiden keeps using the exact same wig. she didn't deserve to go home at all.

  18. Still devastated this Queen was eliminated…. don't get me wrong but half of the cast feels like a previous Queen, at least Rock seems genuine and had the anime perspective with her drag

  19. Never seen a queen so dedicated to her nose contour, bring it girl!
    Also, she is so dorky, I can't just hel to love her. Her make up is great!
