Your Inner Monarch – Makeup Workshop

Ever wanted to get in on the glitz and glam?  No prior makeup or artistic knowledge/experience is required – just your creative brains, a willingness to learn, and a curiosity about yourself and the world around you.

Discover your Inner Monarch Makeup Workshop

Join drag artist Belial B’Zarr (he/they/it) to explore the transformative nature of stage makeup. From giant lashes to cheekbones sharp enough to slice cheese; explore how to abstract your everyday inspirations into signature mugs that capture the imagination and showcase your inner monarch.

3 hr work shop  (with 30 minute lunch break)

This workshop is partially conceptual and partially techniques-focused with the intention of adding more tools to your bedazzled toolbox, such that you can execute your unique visions.

  • Explore the anatomy of characterisation
  • Put pen to paper and learn to manipulate facial structures
  • Plan your makeup starter kit on a budget
  • Learn to get the most out of your products
  • Discover techniques used by the pros


Facilitator Bio

Belial B’Zarr (he/they/it) is a psychedelic lizard wizard (probably from outer space) who loves all things fashion and drag. Originally hatching in Newcastle in 2018, this drag creature has since been performing on stages across Melbourne; twirling, stapling, and dooting his way through Naarm’s alternative drag scene.

Belial can often be found sewing away behind a machine and painting bold, creature-like faces accentuated by his trademark gigantic. fluffy lashes. Passionate about education, he explores arts practice through the lens of drag and often presents workshops pertaining to conceptual design, technical sewing skills, drag history/culture, makeup and more.
