12 flawless makeup photos of James Charles that prove he deserves to be the first male CoverGirl

Get ready to experience some major brow envy over the latest Covergirl ads because James Charles simply kills it. The Instagram star and makeup pro just recently made it to the big leagues in his own series of Covergirl ads. James has been named the newest brand ambassador which rules for tons of reasons, one of which being that the teen admits to only experimenting with makeup on himself for about a year. Charles’ Instagram account, @jcharlesbeauty, has over 529k followers and is just oozing with radical looks from special-effects-type makeup to straight up #flawless everyday glam.

 News broke when Katy Perry (can we have Katy as our bff, too, please?) posted this shot of herself with the 17-year-old YouTube star posing among some adorably costumed puppies.

Our new Coverboy is serving makeup realness each and every day. And James wants you to know that makeup is for everyone.

“I truly hope that this shows that anyone and everyone can wear makeup and can do anything if you work hard. I can’t wait to share with you all what we have in store, but trust me when I say it’s gonna be real good.”

Here are some of our faves from James’ Instagram. BEWARE: major slayage ahead.

Those of us still clamoring for Halloween ideas are totally in luck. James’ YouTube has tons and tons of tutorials inspired by everything from Snapchat filters to creepy, gory horror-movie-type stuff. Check out his channel here.
