17-Year-Old Guy Just Became CoverGirl’s First CoverBoy, And His Makeup Skills Are Too Good

Like many of us, 17-year-old New York-based makeup artist James Charles decided to create an Instagram account. But unlike many of us, he now has over 500k followers and another 75k subscribers on YouTube. And as if that’s not impressive enough, it’s also just been announced that James is going to be CoverGirl’s first-ever male model on their campaigns!

“I am so beyond excited and overwhelmed and happy and astonished and of course, shook, to announce that I am the newest face of @covergirl,” wrote the professional makeup artist on Instagram. “First ever male ambassador for the brand and I am so honored and excited to be working with such an iconic brand.”

James Charles’ CoverGirl career will start as the face of “So Lashy!”, the brand’s latest mascara launch, and he’ll also be used in ads and commercials. Oh, and he also gets to hang out with Katy Perry. And he’s still only 17. Impressed yet with this makeup guy? We certainly are.

I think this person has a very brave soul. There will be lots of haters....but I just love what he is doing and he looks amazing....

Whether he's gay or a cross dresser or not is completely irrelevant. He has skills and it takes courage to show off something like this when it's not commonly considered socially acceptable for your gender to do so. I have a great deal of respect for this young man!
