We have loved Raven since she entered the RuPaul’s Drag Race werk room on season two of the beloved competition series. While she didn’t snatch the crown, she certainly snatched our hearts. The Emmy-Award-winning makeup artist, who has been working with RuPaul since season nine, is back to bring fierce makeup looks to the screen in a new series.  

Painting with Raven, a special spin-off of the hit reality competition series Painted with Raven, that will premiere this summer exclusively on WOW Presents Plus. This fresh format puts Raven in the host’s chair as she sits down with queens from across the franchise for exclusive conversations while they do their make-up. Through these conversations, Raven unearths insider tea from the queens’ time on Drag Race, their life stories, and first-hand make-up tips and tricks. 

Painting with Raven will continue to highlight Raven’s signature charm and unflinching realness that fans know and love while showcasing the breadth of her hosting capabilities across an all-new format. Viewers can expect laughs, games, and secret insights into the wig-snatching make-up routines of the queens as Raven guides in-depth and thoughtful conversations across each half-hour episode. The featured queens in the premiere season were all hand-selected by Raven herself and include Angeria Paris Van Michaels, Jaida Essence Hall, Silky Nutmeg Ganache, Shannel, Naomi Smalls, Deja Skye, Phoenix, and Nicole Paige Brooks.

Said Raven, “Hosting my own WOW Presents Plus series has been a dream come true and I'm looking forward to exploring new hosting territory through Painting with Raven. While sitting down with my fellow queens we will uncover the art of their transformation one brushstroke at a time, all while dishing on life during and after Drag Race.”

“We're excited to continue Raven's World of Wonder legacy with Painting with Raven,” said World of Wonder co-founders Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato. Raven is not just an expert makeup artist but a natural host, and no one is better suited to unearth all the makeup tips and tricks from her fellow glamazons.”

Painted with Raven, first premiered in 2021 and has taken viewers on a hunt for the most talented, undiscovered makeup superstars over two seasons. In this series, makeup artists from across the US compete virtually from the comfort of their own homes in a series of mini-challenges, main challenges, and weekly faceoffs in a unique competition format with no eliminations. Painting with Raven stays true to the core focus and theme of make-up and beauty as defined in the original format while at the same time shifts the lens from competition to conversation. Don’t miss the new series – subscribe to WOW Presents Plus so you don’t miss a moment.
