Meet Hungry, The Queen Of Distorted And Surreal Makeup – Design You Trust

Meet Hungry, The Queen Of Distorted And Surreal Makeup

The drag queen scene has increasingly infiltrated pop culture since the rise of RuPaul’s Drag Race in 2009. While the entertainment qualities of the reality show helped society accept, normalize and shatter myths about the drag scene, it’s time to make way for a new wave of innovative queens who are flooding social media with their approach to drag makeup.

At the head of the alternative drag scene is Berlin’s @isshehungry. Using her expierence from studying fashion design and interning with Vivienne Westwood, Hungry created her own reality, using her body as a canvas. With over 450,000 followers watching post after post of breathtaking creations it’s easy to understand how Hungry has become one of the most talked about drag queens on the internet. Hungry embodies a persona that is experimental and alternative, showcasing surreal makeup and producing original distorted drag.

“It started out as a hobby and then got very therapeutic. By the time I moved to the UK, I already was pretty known in the Berlin scene, partly because it was a very small scene at that point and partly because I brought something different. In London I claimed the title ‘ethereal slag’ and went for an extraterrestrial witch vibe. Back in Berlin a year later the current Hungry surfaced with ‘distorted drag’ ranging from very insect-like drag to my own interpretations of gods,” she said.
