Aquaria has a lot of things to juggle. Since winning RuPaul’s Drag Race in 2018, she has modeled for the likes of Moschino and H&M, became one of the faces of beauty brand MAC‘s Viva Glam campaign, attended the Met Gala, released her own makeup palette with NYX Cosmetics, and performed at Rihanna’s iconic Savage x Fenty fashion show.
So how does she wind down at the end of the day? “It takes so long to get ready to look this glamorous,” she says in the latest episode of Go to Bed with Me. “But it also takes almost just as long to get out of it. Let’s go to bed.”

“Obviously, I wear so much makeup to do my job, whether it’s a show, a fashion moment. It’s a whole lot of makeup and a lot of the times, I will be on tour for days on end, months on end even,” Aquaria divulges. “And I put my skin through it. Needless to say, I need a lot to take it off.”
To help with the makeup-removal process, she starts by spraying Urban Decay’s Meltdown Makeup Remover Dissolving Spray onto her glammed-up face. “Doing a layer of this before you go in with a makeup wipe breaks it all down, it makes it incredible,” she says. “You really don’t need too much of that, but it makes taking all of this off so much easier.”
