We are still reeling with excitement over CoverGirl's recent announcement of their first male spokesmodel, James Charles. While the CoverBoy's experience with applying makeup only reaches back to about a year ago, give him a few products to play with and the 17-year-old is truly a sensation — mastering everything from a natural look to terrifying Halloween tutorials. Don't believe us? Here are some of Charles' best and most fabulous faces to date.
A little natural glam is perfect for an easy, breezy, beautiful day-to-day look.
Haven't done natural glam in quite some time 💘 It's a @benefitcosmetics day! For my brows I used ka-brow to shape & gimme brow gel to set them in place. #benefitbrows On my eyes I used my @morphebrushes 35K palette & I used the benefit goof-proof brow pencil in #3 for my freckles. For my glow I used @anastasiabeverlyhills glow kit in sun dipped & on my lips I have ABH gloss in kristen.
Is there anything more beautiful than Charles using his skills for a wonderful cause?
BREAST CANCER AWARENESS 🎀 I've been so crazy busy the past few days so I haven't had time to do a Halloween look, but I wanted to quickly throw this look together in honor of Breast cancer awareness month & my mom. A few years ago she was diagnosed and it was a super scary time for my family. She went through radiation and today is a 100% healthy and cancer free survivor! I love her so much and I couldn't live without her, and I totally feel for those out there who are going through a similar experience. Never forget to love those close to you because you never know what could happen. Stay strong. LOVE U MOM! 🎀💕 u rock! ____ for my brows I used @benefitcosmetics precisely my brow pencil and then gimme brow gel to lightly fill in my #benefitbrows. I used my @morphebrushes 35B palette to cut my crease (use code "JAMES" for 10% off all products!). For my ribbon liner I used @nyxcosmetics vivid bright liner in vivid fire. My glow is @anastasiabeverlyhills moon child glow kit in pink heart & lips are @toofaced liquid lipstick in the shade fuchsia. 💕 inspired by @_brittneykay 😊
Seriously, this must have taken hours. But how bloody perfect is this?!
Glitter and turquoise make this look absolutely gorgeous. Is there anything he isn't perfect at?
Another perfected Halloween look that's as glamorous as it is terrifying.

MIDNIGHT 🌙 wanted to show y'all my new dark hair & claws 👀 ____ my nails were snatched for the gods by @picasonails 💕 she's so kind AND talented (duh), you need to check her out! we went with matte black almonds but I wanted an accent nail so she gave me a chrome nail 😍 I'm obsessed!! ____ my new dark hair was done by @sassysio over at @artandautonomy 😍 I desperately needed help with my faded rats nest that was living under my hats, and I absolutely love how it turned out!
Even Zendaya approved of his CoverBoy talents when Charles tried out a look inspired by the Replay singer.

We're absolutely mad for this Mad Hatter look!
The man has a way with highlighters, and if you disagree, you're wrong.
He has even got the comic book look down, and we feel like taking down bad guys just looking at it!
STRAIGHT OUTTA MARVEL 💥 peep the new username 👀 I did this look last year and wanted to recreate it again and see the change in skill! ____ this is inspired by my babe @alissa.ashley check hers out! ____ I used @morphebrushes gel liner in slate for the detail lines, & this entire look was using morphe brushes (use code JAMES for 💸 off).
