“Tura Thursday” is a regular series celebrating the legacy of the late, great Tura Satana, best known as Varla in the 1965 Russ Meyer cult classic Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!. This series is curated by Tura’s longtime manager, friend, confidant and CEO of Tura Satana Productions, Siouxzan Perry.


While going through various You Tube videos on Tura, I found this one by a lady named Lea Evangelista. I was just enthralled with it so I decided to include it here for Tura Thursdays!

I tried reaching out to Lea but got no reply…would’ve loved to have a short interview with her for this piece…but instead you’ll have to watch her video and learn how to do your makeup like Tura.



From Lea’s channel description: Welcome to Lea’s YouTube channel! Our focus here is on both inner and outer beauty. Lea began her career as a professional makeup artist and instructor in New Jersey and New York in 2003. She is professionally trained and certified by a private makeup studio, as well as by MAC Cosmetics, where she got hired in 2004, and continued to work for many years. Lea is passionate as well about inspiring clients to look within. She co-founded and served as the first president of the University of the Philippines Paranormal Society before she turned eighteen in 2007, and is a graduate of several courses on ESP, psychic development, metaphysics, and spirituality. Beginning in her college days almost twenty years ago, Lea has been conducting workshops on intuition and various subjects in the metaphysical field in locations such as the Philippines, Los Angeles, and the San Francisco Bay Area, where she currently resides.
