GOTTMIK is a superstar in the making. Originally from Scottsdale, Gottmik first started playing around with makeup in high school – developing what will become a truly signature look.. “The first time I ever performed was in a bar in Tucson, Arizona [when I was 18],I looked so crazy and just continually blossomed on this original path”. Later, moving to Los Angeles to study at FIDM, Gottmik started a side hustle as a makeup artist, working with celebrities such as Kaia Gerber, Paris Hilton, and Lil Nas X. “The only type of makeup that excited me was crazy, over-the-top drag makeup,” says Gottmik, whose signature makeup look is a face painted white with thin, drawn-on brows. A brilliant collision of kabuki, anime, goth, origami and something absolutely not from this world, leaving some frightened, many aghast and almost everyone absolutely adoring this unique artist.
On Drag Race, Gottmik’s innate talent for showstopping glam is on full display, but it’s their fashion choices that have truly stolen the show and cemented them as a front-runner. Whatever the look, a Gottmik outfit is always campy, but nods to high-fashion designers.
Gottmik has blasted into our social conscience hitting a chord with literally millions of fans across the globe. This is inclusivity like nonother. This beautiful new character that has taken the world by storm has literally jumped in fandam by a million plus followers in just a few short months. Brands are quickly seeing this new and unique platform of sharing their message of inclusivity to the market.
Gottmik is one to watch…and watch…and watch.
Gorge as hell!! “It’s time to crash the cistem”.
