Since years makeup has been considered a feminine practice, especially when it comes to ‘colour cosmetics’. But like everything else this too has changed and makeup is no more constricted to one particular gender. The evolution was surely initiated by Transgenders and Drag Queens, who fearlessly used to put on makeup and looked smashing. RuPaul Andre Charles, America’s most famous drag queen, completely changed the game with his reality competition series, RuPaul’s Drag Race, and has since inspired many men to fearlessly practice makeup as a profession.
To prove the point here are some really successfulartists who took up makeup simply because they loved it and smashed every single gender stereotype to pieces:JAMES CHARLES
