Ingrid Victoria is best known in the world of drag queens as the maker of extravagant eyelashes.
If you’ve seen drag queens on TV or on stage and wondered where the heck you get eyelashes like that, now you too can get hooked up for just $25 (or $12.50 for one eyelash) at Chimera Lashes.

If you’re thinking a woman in a fake beard must look like a circus freak, admit it, she’s gorgeous.
