CoverGirl has just announced a makeup wearing boy on the next cover - how does it make you feel?
James Charles wears makeup and has a big social media following....now he's on a magazine cover - what's your reaction?
Another symptom of modern narcissism. Another attempt to foster look-ism over actual merit, ability, character.
Really who cares, there are MORE IMPORTANT issues at hand. If he wears makeup so what.
Cool. Men wear makeup all the time (television, photo shoots, fashion statements, etc.) so why not.
Makeup is up there with dresses and the colour pink when it comes to things arbitrarily assigned as 'girl things'. There's no real, meaningful reason that men shouldn't be able to wear makeup so if they want to then all the power to them.
He's a makeup artist, and he's pretty good at what he does, so I think it's an interesting choice for such a traditional brand. Good for them for trying something different.
Well, they are not doing anything wrong, but still...WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Like it's Boy George reincarnated. Big Deal, the world didn't come to an end when he put on makeup.
Oh let's see.....how does James Charles wearing makeup make me feel? A bit jealous that he applies it so perfectly. He's a good looking young man. If he likes make-up, who cares?
What's my reaction? I wouldn't have a visceral reaction should I meet him face to face. However, I have a seriously hard time controlling a reaction to a person who has a face covered in tattoos, stretched ears & lips, with rings through their noses, eyelids, lips & all the way around their ears......They actually scare me and afterwards I feel like I want to cry for their parents because they've disfigured themselves permanently.
Actors, etal in the entertainment industry have always worn makeup...nothing new there.
Now, although I'm casually accepting of a young man wearing makeup, rest ASSURED, at my age, I would not go out to dinner with a man my age who wears makeup.....Uh-uh,,Nope...No way...Sorry, no can do! LOL
I guess I feel the young can get away with doing uncommon things!
I know what you mean. At age 9 my granddaughter refused to pierce her ears because it was a "desecration of the body". Now in her 20s, she pierced her ears (ok with me) and then pierced just below her lower lip. Too bad, it will leave a scar.
It makes's me wanna buy the issue first and read about it in detail. Besides that Cover Girl is a fashion industry which primarily focuses on cosmetics. Bringing a guy who's got massive fan following in YouTube and Instagram for his make-up work. There's nothing wrong in it. I feel it's a revolution for Cover Girl, they took a big step and i wish it will be huge success for them.
It makes me feel that James should try another look-- at least during his off time. I will tell you why. According to the Gays I know and whom I respect greatly, the full-make-up thing on men is not attractive. Not at all.
If James is promoting his career alone, I get it! However, if he thinks more Gay men will desire him and take him seriously as a lover, he is dead wrong.
The ultimate look is masculine. Do you see any cologne ads with men who look "girlish?" I don't think so. Why? Because it isn't sexy, girlfriend.
Gregas, this is probably not the answer you were looking for. That's okay.
I speak from the perspective of what is attractive in a man and what is not. I am glad that James is recognized for his talent as a make-up artist. But if I were his friend, I would tell him to separate his work from his personal life and to lay off the make-up "big time" if he wants a serious relationship. Given his youth, I doubt that he is there yet. Hopefully, he will be in time.
One other thing.....for heterosexual men who think that plucking your eyebrows is a good look, I have news for you. It isn't. It looks kind of silly. Don't do it. It is not a turn-on. Quite the opposite, in fact.
James is an amazing makeup artist, better than a lot of women MUA's (Makeup Artist) you will find on social media. I honestly am not a bit surprised that he will be on a cover, and it is well deserved. Look at Jeffree Star, uber popular male that wears tons of makeup and even launched his own line. There is big money in cosmetics, and this kid has talent so kudos for him getting the cover it could be great for his career.
Men actually do wear makeup more often than the masses think about, television spots (even news anchors), and any hollywood actor. So it really is not anything taboo for a man to wear makeup. I think it is great that CoverGirl is moving towards giving some of the extremely talented male MUA's a chance at the cover.
As someone who enjoys cosmetics it will be a nice chance from the norm honestly, a man who is not only a MUA but also wears the makeup he uses ~ that is some advice you can trust.
My teenage daughters absolutely love him. He's incredibly talented as a make up artist. Learning and gathering tips from him is fun, entertaining and worthwhile.

Ay what age would you permit your daughters to wear make-up and paint their nails?

No. I seem to have very weak ankles. Have broken an ankle bone at least once, torn ligaments and had bad sprains-- even when wearing sensible shoes. At this point in my life, I wouldn't dare.
