但欢迎来到2016年，to a time where we all now know our good sides,照明的重要性，and have heroes like 17-year-oldJames Charles庆祝。If you're not already one of his hundreds of thousands followers,你可能看过他的年鉴照片，哪一个病毒传播因为他在本周早些时候发表了这篇文章，一天之内就在Twitter上累积了超过33000个转发和84000个喜欢的内容。
The mesmerizing picture looks way more professional than any yearbook photo you've seen,多亏了詹姆斯的支持打火机—oh yeah,以及他自己带来的专业照明。"So I retook my senior photos and brought my ring light with me so my highlight would be poppin'," Charles tweeted along with the photo—making all of us who had to take senior pics before selfies were a thing weep with jealously.
Surprisingly,对于那些通过化妆、艺术和教程而在网上工作的人来说，照片日是查尔斯第二次化妆上学。"When I wore it the first time,it really wasn't any different," he told us via email,在回伯利恒的巴士上，N.Y.来自Philly。“我得到了很多赞美，太棒了，我觉得很自信，但我总是感到自信。I'm comfortable in my own skin,which I feel is important.我不需要化妆来感觉漂亮。”
比他那亮着的荧光灯更重要的是，查尔斯提醒全世界，尤其是他的男性同龄人，一些像化妆品一样平常的东西有能力打破文化障碍。It's a message that resonates louder than ever today,as gender norms become increasingly disintegrated.
我们赶上了快速崛起的美女vlogger，谈论如何制作一张病毒式年鉴照williamhill388片，他是如何开始成为一名艺术家的，and how the cultural attitude toward men in makeup is changing.Read on!
James Charles:I used to do hair before I did makeup.A little over a year ago,I was doing one of my good friend's hair and she was late to her appointment at Sephora,所以她让我帮她化妆。我警告过她，告诉她她可能看起来很糟糕，if so,我并没有承担责任，但事实证明它非常漂亮！
JC：I started doing makeup on myself a few weeks after I practiced on my friends to learn the basics.I saw other guys doing it and have always been a fan of鲁保罗变装皇后秀.I talked to another male MUA [makeup artist] who said I was talented and should start posting looks,so I did.我从没料到它会迅速升级。
实际上我不经常化妆，我一点也不做！I love makeup artistry,and creating cool and fun looks,but I usually only do makeup to record videos and take my Instagram photos,or when I go to special events.我是waytoo lazy and sleep deprived to wake up every morning and do full glam.Major props to people who can do that though.
JC：Everyone has been extremely supportive and kind.At first it was a rocky road with my parents because they didn't really understand it.有很多战斗，but once I was able to explain to them that it was a form of creative expression—and once I actually started to gain success—they began to realize I was taking it seriously and could actually make a career out of it.Now they're my No.1 fans.
