RuPaul Shares Her Beauty Secrets With Kate McKinnon on “SNL” Stage

Live from New York, it's RuPaul... in full drag!

Unless you’re part of the AJ and the Queen cast and crew, it’s probably been a cute minute since you saw RuPaul in drag outside of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Well, feast your eyes on the latest promo video for RuPaul’s Saturday Night Live hosting gig this weekend. In the new clip, Mama Ru stands on the SNL stage—yes, in full drag—next to cast member Kate McKinnon, who is rendered speechless by the Supermodel of the World’s glamazonian beauty.

“Ru, you look incredible,” McKinnon tells Ru. “How long did this all take?”

Because a lady never RuVeals her secrets, the queen tells her, “Child, I just roll out of bed, put a little mascara on, and I work it! This is mostly just bone structure… and glue.” As we always suspected!

When SNL cast member Aidy Bryant appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen last week, a caller asked if she thought Ru would be sashaying on the sketch show in drag. While Cohen predicted that Ru would not, Bryant said, “My guess would be if we do it, it’s going to be in a pre-tape.”

“He has to somehow, somewhere,” she added. “High hopes.”

Cross your fingers, kitty girls, and check out the new video below.
 

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
