Behind the Scenes w RuPaul and the cast of “DRAG RACE”

I absolutely LOVE what I do as a working makeup/hair artist in the entertainment business, especially when I get to meet some of the inspirations that have paved the way for beauty seekers like myself.

The incredible icon of drag-RuPaul and three of the girls from Logo TV’s DRAG RACE came to E television today to film a skit for my show THE SOUP- Raven (Season 2), Shangela (Season 3), and Chad Michaels (Season 4).

I was on hand for makeup touchups, but these queens came totally glammed up and ready for the camera!!! The art of makeup has always been most apparent through the art of female impersonation in my eyes and the skills and techniques used to create a female form and face on a man pretending to be a woman is an incredible art form that I adore.

I had the pleasure of powdering RuPaul himself, and I had an out of body experience while doing so. To think that way back in RuPaul’s early days of club appearances I got to see him live on stage performing “Supermodel” and now years and years later I was on hand as his makeup artist for a touch up!!! I am so blessed and forever changed by what he has brought to the world of pop culture, gay rights, and beauty as an art form.

Thank you for your time and your interest in my work… have a wonderful day.
