A preferred influencer from the UK has gone viral with a TikTok video displaying him giving his father a full drag queen makeover.
Alex Ullah, 23, reworked his 54-year-old dad, Joe Ullah, with a “Euphoria”-inspired make-up look within the now-viral video.
“He was so shocked at his transformation at first, but I knew he secretly liked it,” Alex advised Ark Media.

“I was proud of how it turned out — it’s easier to do good makeup on someone who already has pretty features but when it’s an older man’s face, it’s much more hard to soften and make everything feminine!” Alex shared.
Fans had been shocked by the transformation, however this wasn’t the primary time Alex has turned Joe into an unrecognizable queen.

“I put my dad in drag for the first time in 2020 and that video went viral, reaching over 3 million views, so I put him into drag again inspired by ‘Euphoria,’ as I’m obsessed with that show,” Alex stated.
“He’s very supportive of my career and doing his makeup was such a good laugh. Everyone was so supportive, and they enjoyed the comedy of it all.”
Alex started performing drag in 2016 after training his spectacular make-up abilities and now performs as Chanel Dior.

“Drag is such a transformative process where it changes everything about your original face and can create a whole new person, so when someone who has spent their life looking a certain way [gets a makeover], it’s a fun shock to see something fun and new,” Alex stated.
Joe isn’t the one member of the family whom Alex has shocked along with his make-up abilities. Alex additionally shared a TikTok video reworking his 74-year-old grandpa “from Charlie to Charlotte.”
“I want to show others that drag can be a part of every culture, and everyone can learn to have fun and explore the joy drag can bring!”
