Makeup artist and social media influencer, Mikayla Nogueira, took a trip to Las Vegas and got to experience RuPaul’s Drag Race Live last weekend.
The famous influencer is not only a fan of drag but said she would “die to meet Trixie Mattel,” the Season 3 winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.
Mikayla is from Boston and is also a huge fan of fellow Bostonian and Miss Congeniality Katya Zamolodchikova.
The most endearing part of her TikTok review is that Mikayla called out the recent push from conservative lawmakers attempting to limit or outright outlaw drag in public spaces.
Mikayla stated in her video voice-over that conservative lawmakers introduced over 300 anti-LGBTQ+ bills last year.
The bill passed in Tennessee recently restricts “adult cabaret performances” in public or in the presence of children and bans them from occurring within 1,000 feet of schools, public parks, or places of worship.”
Mikayla Nogueira says she is disappointed by people that would ban drag as an art form
Mikayla Nogueira attended RuPaul’s Drag Race in Las Vegas last weekend and said she was disappointed by people that would want to ban drag as an art form when it isn’t hurting anyone and brings so much joy.
The social media influencer added that she appreciates the work that goes into a performance, from the time and talent to makeup and hair, dress, choreography, and the whole production, which takes a lot of dedication and hard work.
The “intense passion and love” put into RuPaul’s Drag Race Live performance was so moving for the makeup artist that she cried three times during the show.
She had a message for those that would want to threaten the art of drag, “I encourage you to put your energy into something else because the one thing you will never do is take down a queen.”

Mikayla said she would die to meet Trixie Mattel while getting ready to attend RuPaul’s Drag Race Live in Las Vegas.
She mentioned on her TikTok video being a fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race alums Trixie Mattel, Alyssa Edwards, and Katya Zamolodchikova, who hails from her hometown of Boston, Massachusetts.
Mikayla has over 14 million followers on TikTok, where she gives makeup tips and reviews of makeup products across social media platforms.
The makeup queen was transforming her makeup from a daytime to nighttime look before attending the live show when she remarked she supported the art of drag, “On my page, we f**king support drag shows and if you f**king don’t, we would not get along.”
Her favorite part of RuPaul’s Drag Race is the makeup, and she said she would love to do a drag look for her audience one of these days.
