Meet Elliot Joseph Rentz, AKA Alexis Stone, a drag queen and makeup aficionado based out of Manchester, UK. “To achieve the transformations to the level I do, I use as much makeup as possible,” he told INSIDER. Alex uses makeup to transform into celebrities and documents the astonishing looks on his Instagram and YouTube accounts.

“Transforming and playing dress-up has always been an interest of mine even as a kid growing up watching Mrs. Doubtfire. Love studying the human face and the spaces between each other’s features.” – said Alex.

Opening yourself up on the internet, however, comes with inevitable backlash and Rentz has faced criticism over his cosmetic procedures as well as some of his celebrity transformations which often cross-gender and race lines. It’s a topic that Rentz is keen to address. “Often people aren’t able to fully understand the difference between paying homage to POC with a respectful execution and historical racial mocking,” Rentz says. “As a white man, I really understand the privileges I have and I am not completing these transformations as a costume, they are simply make-up transformations which I have proven can be done without darkening my foundation.”

In an interview with Dazed Digital, Alex spoke more about himself and how working with makeup has impacted his life.

I’m originally from Brighton, however, I moved out of home at 16 to live in London. Leaving the nest at a young age came with its pros and a lot of cons which evidently landed me in rehab as a late teenager. Going through the ups and downs of life at a young age shaped me into who I am today and when you throw in some gay acceptance and cross-dressing as a child it has created Mrs. Doubtfire 2.0″

“I always asked for wigs and dresses as a child, dressing up and hiding behind a character was the life goal for sure. I remember asking for highlights in my hair when I was around 11 which I was allowed but my appearance was never something I thought about until recently since I now have the ability to be anyone.”

“Breaking into our local farm store dressed as a woman with a red curly wig and Cinderella hoop skirt dress. Then running home after being clocked by the owners! I was living my fantasy.”

“Not much personally, make-up is my job which has of course taken over my life as of right now and for the last couple of years defined me in the eyes of strangers. It has 100 percent allowed me to showcase some of my creativity and explore self-expression when it comes to identity but it’s questionable if that is my own personal identity as Elliot.”
