How Harper Watters Found Power In Lipstick & Heels

Watters first learned to put on makeup for his dance recitals and studio performances. Over time, he perfected his stage makeup skills by watching YouTube tutorials and copying the techniques of drag queens. “RuPaul’s Drag Race was really inspirational for me to start accepting my feminine side and exploring my identity, other sides of who I am, and who I can be,” he says. “It really made me feel like, ‘It’s cool to put on a heel, makeup, or any type of outfit.”
