Since this is a Focus Challenge, keeping things simple is critical. Stevie gets this balance right with her Hippolyta from A Midsummer Night's Dream.
On Application Day, Ricky's prosthetic starts wrinkling and puckering, turning his pretty Ophelia from Hamlet into an ugly old lady …
Jasmine's appliance rebels against the paint application, so she has to scrap it and do a straight-up beauty makeup for her Hermione from The Winter's Tale. Good thing she has so much drag makeup experience!

Stevie's Hippolyta is radiant and steps regally into Top Looks.
Evan's concept missed the opportunity to create a unique Hecate from Macbeth. He's in Bottom Looks.
