Queen Of Night & Day: Tamara Mascara
You are such a do-it-all; you have so many talents! But what would you say you are most passionate about?
I am obsessed with aesthetics. When I create a look for my Drag alter Ego or for a client, everything needs to be perfect. The proportions, the feel to the materials, the colours and how everything works together. As an artist, I feel it is my mission to contribute beauty and aesthetic into our world.
Does having a background in fashion design influence the way you see the world?
Definitively. Knowledge is the key to creation. The more we know about our world, the more we can use our knowledge as a language in our visual, artistic work.
Having a background in fashion design helps me to be able to create looks technically too, but I never stopped learning and trying.
What is the best beauty tip/trick you have ever learned?
Building products up. For example when you use foundation: Use very little first and add more just when it is needed. This is the best trick ever for make up, also for blending powders. I want the results to look super soft almost airbrush like, I call this “puffy”.
Tell us about what is next for you!
I am working on several great projects. Be sure to follow my YouTube channel to see my latest looks!
Anything else you'd like to add?
We are living in strange times. There is a lot of violence and hate happening in the world. In times like these we as artists need to work against this dark energies and create a counterweight to it. Don’t be afraid! Paint! Sew! Design! Create!
