Photo by @kchete77 (Karla Gachet) | Drag queen Valentina (left), aka Los Angeles performer James Andrew Leyva, records a music video in a Boyle Heights studio in May of 2017. She was a contestant in RuPaul’s Drag Race before being eliminated in the television show’s ninth season. Her performances are a tribute to classic Latina beauty. She has payed homage to María Félix, a Mexican film actress who was a central figure in the Golden Age of Mexican cinema. Most of his crew is Latino. This photo was shot #onassignment for @natgeo with @ivankphoto. It was published in the July 2018 issue in the feature: “How Latinos Are Shaping America’s Future.” #Latinos #culture #performers #pride #latinxpower #facesofthefuture #losangeles #entertainment #youth #latinxdrag

Photo by @FransLanting At this time of year wildebeest are pouring into Kenya’s Maasai Mara reserve as part of their annual migration around the larger Serengeti grasslands that stretch across northern Tanzania and southern Kenya. It’s an awesome sight to behold and it confirms the vital need to protect Serengeti/Maasai Mara as an integrated ecosystem, but there are many conflicting interests on the horizon that jeopardize the future of this epic phenomenon. Follow me @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom to learn more about the plight of Africa’s wildlife. @NatGeo @ThePhotoSociety @NatGeoCreative #Serengeti #Migration #Conservation #Wildebeest

“Just before dawn the sun rises over the Hintersee National Park in Germany. The mist clears over the dead calm lake giving a mystic view of the mountains greeting the morning sun,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Gregor Thelen. “Like a land untouched by human hand the quietness and peace is tangible in the delicate shades and majestic nature rising from the night.”

When Juliana Horner (@vesperucca) is asked about her style of makeup, even she can’t describe it. “I have a natural tendency to break away then come back to abstract work,” says the 26-year-old artist, who works not only with makeup, but also illustration and fashion — and she has aspirations in the field of virtual reality design. “My drawing and my makeup converged at a certain point. They slowly merged into one stream of this really weird makeup style that I don’t have a name for.”
Throughout all of her art, Juliana is inspired by common themes. “I have a pretty feminine perspective that shows up in my work, and I really love color. I’m addicted to saturation. My eye is always going to gravitate toward the saturated part of a scene, and I like to think how I can bend or contort that saturation in a more pleasing way.”
Watch Juliana create an illustration and a makeup look today on our story and on our IGTV channel. To watch IGTV, update your app now, then look for the new icon in the top right corner of feed.


The storms rolled into the valley and the days started to blur into one another...is a good start to a book 📚

Between wild, country drives through the steppe, lakeside hotels and chasing waterfalls the ever present rain seemed to deepen the experience in Bariloche #visitargentina
