James Charles was born in Bethlehem, New York on May 23, 1999. He has one sibling, Ian.
In June 2017, James graduated from Bethlehem Central High School. His graduation made the news after the CoverGirl slogan – “Easy, Breezy, Beautiful” – was donned on his graduation cap.
James, who is openly gay, currently lives in New York City. There have been reports that he is dating Grayson Dolan, but the twin denied the rumors.
After high school, he was employed as a hairstylist. Dissatisfied by the job, and feeling like his creativity was being suppressed, he started experimenting with cosmetics. Eventually, he became a social media sensation, amassing nine million Instagram followers, one million Twitter followers, and 10 million YouTube subscribers.
During the 8th Streamy Awards, James earned an award for the best channel in the Beauty category.
In October 2016, James was tapped as a spokesperson for CoverGirl, becoming the first male spokesmodel for the cosmetics brand. He also walked the runway during Los Angeles Fashion Week.
James announced in November 2018 that he launched his first-ever makeup collection called the Sister Collection.
“HI SISTERS!” he said in the announcement. “I am so excited to show you my full Sister Collection LAUNCHING NOVEMBER 13TH AT 8AM PST ON MORPHE.COM AND AT ALL ULTA LOCATIONS ON NOVEMBER 16th. We created a BEAUTIFUL rainbow palette with insane pigmentation & the best brush set on the market, so you can #UnleashYourInnerArtist.”
We estimate that James Charles’s net worth is $4 million (2018).
So how much is $4 million really?
$4 million can launch your own makeup store in the heart of New York City. $4 million can also buy property in The City That Never Sleeps.
