Marina Summers, the Latina bombshell known for her tropical and tanned aesthetic, posts a lot of makeup transformations on her Instagram and TikTok. This is our favorite. She also has an original song called “I Have Arrived,” which you can listen to on Spotify. It’s a great way to channel the summer during the rainy season. Listen to it here.

Eva Le Queen could very well be the busiest drag artist in the Philippines. Apart from turning in gorgeous looks, she is the CEO and founder of Drag Playhouse PH, a local drag content and entertainment provider. DPH also has its creative agency called Studio628. Not only that, Eva has her wig business Wigs by Le Queen and runs the podcast and talk show Evangelism.

Prince Marell is an extraterrestrial queen whose looks range from sweet and feminine to the more out of this world. In this video, Prince Marell channels Lil Nas X’s “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name).” It only makes sense that a queen as skilled in makeup as Prince Marell would have her own beauty brand. She runs Prince Beauty, known for its ProBlend Beauty Sponges.

St. Taura describes her drag as “conceptually boring” but we don’t agree one bit because we think she’s gorgeous. She also says her look is something “you’ve seen before but you keep anticipating what’s next.” This we agree with.

Viñas DeLuxe is definitely a multi-hyphenate: she’s an award-winning drag artist, an events host, a vlogger, and a comedian. She’s also known for her Regine Velasquez impersonation but lately, we’re obsessed with her Rabiya Mateo transformation.

Precious Paula Nicole

♬ YooHoo… Follow me – Thomas Johnson

O-A is a versatile queen whose looks depend on her mood. She once told us, “What I enjoy most in doing drag is when I get to dress up however I want. For me, drag gave me the freedom to embrace different kinds of fashion choices and styles. Aside from that, I also enjoy inspiring other people to get into the world of drag. When I won Drag Cartel All Stars 2, I’ve had several people come up to me and tell me that I was able to inspire them to try out drag for themselves.”

Andy Crocker told us before, she’s your “friendly neighborhood colorful lady. The spectrum is my playground, pop culture and nostalgia are my ace. Every performance is an intimate experience for you to say “I had fun that night.” Vibrant, nostalgic, pop culture, and your local Disney Princess.” It looks she crossed over to the other side with this Cruella transformation.
