James Charles: First Male Covergirl!

James Charles was born on 23 May 1999, in Bethlehem, New York. He is not the only child of his family, but he also has a younger brother named Ian Charles. He has taken a break from school because he started working as a makeup artist and did not get time to finish his high schooling.

Since an early age, James showed an interest in make-up and told his parents about it. After receiving approval from his parents, he ordered his first make-up kit online, and his father even helped him change the basement to a makeup studio.

James began his career as a hairdresser, he used to do hairstyling for clients in his hometown but began to feel constricted when he kept getting requests for the same hairstyle.

However, soon after he did his friend's makeup and posted a picture on social media, he got positive feedback, and other people started requesting him for their makeup.

When he posted his first picture of himself in Halloween makeup, he got the overwhelming positive result and amassed over 400,000 followers on Instagram and over 147,000 subscribers on his YouTube makeup tutorial channel.

He also posted photos of himself celebrating his one-year anniversary "of the first time I ever tried makeup on myself."

Besides an internet sensation, James, who stands at the tall height of 5 feet 10 inches tall, is also a good singer. He often posts short clips of himself singing with his best friend Anthony Gargiulo, another social media star, and with other friends.

He further told that his parents were incredibly accepting and got a lot of support from his school and community.

Does James Have Any Boyfriend?

Though James is opened up about his sexuality, he never uncovered the names of his boyfriend on social media.

However, in the past, James was rumored to be dating Aaron Fuller, another social media star in January 2017. They first got in touch through a private message on Instagram. After that, they started exchanging messages before heading out for a date.

But sadly, their date soon turned into a huge drama as Tana Mongeau; another social media star accused Aaron of using James for fame. Hence, James decided to come out of this.

Likewise, in September 2017, a guy named Shawn took to his Twitter account and revealed that James had matched with him on Tinder. After knowing this, James called Shawn out for using him for Twitter fame, and later Shawn apologized to him for the mistake he has done.
