From the theme Philippine History, let’s take a look back on some of the most sickening hair and makeup looks from this year’s Unkabogaball 2022.
Another year, another fashion ball. Back and better than before, Vice Ganda relives history through fashion and beauty in this year’s Unkabogaball 2022. More than just a celebration, local celebs, drag queens, and queer artists walked the carpet showcasing their extravagant garments and cohesive makeup looks— and they’re all getting the much deserved talk of the town.
From the political statements to their fierce and campy ensemble, the outfits wouldn’t be complete without their glamorous and awe-inspiring maquillage to match. Inspired by and executed with drag elements, this year’s makeup and hair was truly unkabogable. Let’s take a look at some of the looks that turned heads this year.
Who else would serve none other than mother herself. Dripping in royalty, Vice Ganda portrayed Lady Bulakna, wearing gold and bronze head to toe. Makeup artist Emmanuel Concepcion went for a neutral glam look with a red lip to match. Subtle, but cohesive to the overall garment. What really completed the look was the golden headpiece attached to her head.
Marina Summers is here, and she’s ready to make a socio-political statement. Wearing a custom Neric Beltran piece, she completes the look with her signature drag makeup; using drag techniques like baking and gluing down the brows to shape and lift the face. Additionally, she uses neutral tones for that high-glam effect. The icing on the cake is her hair, styled into the beehive, a popular hairdo in the 60’s.
Category is: Philippine History. With that in mind, Prince decided to represent herself, as the first ever eliminated drag queen in the Drag Race Philippines franchise. To coordinate with her outfit, was a blue and green motif, using rhinestones to form a cut crease. She also paired the eye look with a rosey blush and a nude lip.
In her Princess Urduja outfit, Awra Briquela looks stunning as ever. Makeup artist Danila Pepito Jr. went for a soft glam look, using simple neutrals, peachy blush, and a nude lip.
3 in 1? Viñas DeLuxe is giving GomBurZa but make it drag! Not only did she paint her own mug, but the two headpieces resting on her shoulders too.
In her Babaylan Sa Public School Textbook look, Sassa Gurl is enchanting from head to toe. Makeup artist Thelaria used black and white products to bring out the shadows on her face. To complete the look, Sassa wore a white wig and a jaw jewelry piece for that striking effect.
KaladKaren is sultry in red! To match the garment, her eyelook had red and silver rhinestones, and to tone down the face a peachy blush and a peach lip to match was applied.
Corazon was all glammed up, but can we talk about the hair? Sleeked in and her bangs dyed as red, white and blue to imitate the Philippine flag, and the sun and stars embellishment to complete the look!
For Krissy’s Pear of The Orient Look, pearl embellishments were glued on her temples for a gradient pearl effect that looks seamless to her gown. For a statement, she wore a red lip and a blue eye look.
QUEEN PIA PAOLO
Representing Butuan and Agusan pride, Queen Pia Paolo is dressed as The Golden Tara, the Hindu-Malayan Goddess. Other-wordly can be described in this look, as different cultural makeup techniques are applied. From the eyeliner down to the headpiece. Similar to her outfit, her makeup; from eyes, base, to her lips were in a bronze and gold motif.
