WATCH: Drag Race Royalty Jaida Essence Hall Shout-Outs A Maltese Teen’s Make-Up Skills


Season 12 winner of Rupaul’s Drag Race Jaida Essence Hall has just given 16-year-old Maltese teen, Maya Zammit, a shout-out for her Jaida inspired make-up look.

Maya has been on a mission to re-create some iconic Season 12 Drag race looks, starting with Gigi Goode last week, and moving on to Jaida earlier this week.

What she might not have anticipated is that Jaida would later on give her a shout-out for the stunning look on her own Instagram. *Tongue Pop*

Guess you can say that Maya’s charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent grabbed the attention of the season 12 winner. And in true Drag Race fashion… Maya looks brown cow stunning to say the least.

Jaida Essence Hall’s win was announced last night, after a virtual finale that saw its first ever three-way lip sync. Gigi Goode, Crystal Method and Jaida Essence Hall, three very strong contenders, were battling it our for the crown.

💜 Monochrome 💜 No matter how many people love you or how many who don’t, you have to remember that we are all made from the same things. But we also have to remember that we all live through completely different experiences, good and bad that make us who we are, beautifully. Love starts within. Sometimes I forget that and can be so hard on myself. But everyday is a new day to begin or deeper our relationship and love for ourselves. Working on keeping that magic 💜 Make details: Eyes: @juviasplace @anastasiabeverlyhills @lancomeofficial Skin: @makeupforeverofficial @makeuprevolution @lorealusa @blackopalbeauty @anastasiabeverlyhills @dermablendpro @juviasplace Lips: @maccosmetics @anastasiabeverlyhills #DragRace Season 12 Fridays on @VH1 8/7c Follow me on all social media platforms: @jaidaehall Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Tik Tok • • #dragqueen #drag #queen #dragshow #performer #entertainer #showqueen #showgirl #beauty #hair #makeup #mua #beautyqueen #transformer #jaidaessencehall #glam #glamour #dragrace #rupaulsdragrace #vh1 @vh1 @rupaulsdragrace @worldofwonder

A Tik Tok by a very happy and excited Maya, showing Jaida’s reshare of her look captioned: ‘The Slay’ made us gag! This musy have made Maya’s year.

“I AM THE HAPPIEST PERSON IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW,” Maya writes as her Tik Tok video caption. Can you blame her for being so excited? We’re screaming just seeing this, let alone being the one to actually get the recognition.

Well done Maya! We can’t wait to see your other Drag Race inspired looks!
