When we decided to launch a makeup tutorial series for the PopCrush YouTube channel, we knew we had two options: We could go the tried-and-true route and enlist a traditional beauty vlogger. Or, we could seriously amp up the fab factor, break out the glitter and glue sticks and dive straight (eh heh) into the world of drag.

Needless to say, we went with the latter.

And today, we're excited to finally unveil our very special guest instructor: RuPaul's Drag Race superstar, singing sensation, makeup maven and all-around guru of all things glamour, Courtney Act.

In the premiere episode of Kiss & Make-Up, Courtney demonstrates the Art of Focusing — specifically, Ariana Grande's gorgeous "Focus" look. And yes, don't worry: that icy ponytail is definitely coming along for the ride.

From achieving the perfect eye to drawing out Ari's lip line to getting that youthful shimmer on those cheeks, Courtney's provided the essential step-by-step for the Arianator who wants to emulate the My Everything pop princess' latest look. And we've got to say: She seriously nailed it.

So, whether you're preparing to lip-sync for your life or merely trying to make your day look a whole lot more Grande, we've got you covered. Watch Courtney's first episode of Kiss & Make-Up above. Make sure to subscribe — stay tuned for more episodes coming soon on Mondays!
