PHOTOS: The Two Worlds of Leon Eldridge

Dave Vaughn's photo essay shows two different sides of one man's life in the conservative city of Lubbock, Texas.



Depending on the look he's going for, Eldridge he applies several different layers of makeup.

He says he generally tries to keep his look natural, but some drag queens use makeup that is more dramatic and similar to makeup used in stage performances. This is because it draws focus to the eyes, which he says are typically the most ambiguous or feminine features of a man's face.
