Modeling

On October 11, 2016, at the age of seventeen, Charles became the first male spokesmodel for cosmetics brand CoverGirl, working alongside brand ambassador Katy Perry.[5][6][7][8][9] As the first male spokesmodel and brand ambassador for CoverGirl, Charles will be the face of the soon-to-be launched So Lashy! by BlastPro Mascara.[10][11]

In 2017, Charles walked the runway for MarcoMarco's Six 1/2 collection during Los Angeles Fashion Week.[12][13]

In 2018, Charles collaborated with Morphe Cosmetics to release an eyeshadow palette. In January 2019, he was invited to Birmingham, England, to open the company's second UK store, where over 7,000 fans showed up to see him, causing parts of the city centre to come to a standstill.[14] There were reports of people abandoning their cars due to a traffic gridlock and shoppers cancelling their trips.[15]

In March 2019, Charles did the makeup for Iggy Azalea's music video shoot for "Sally Walker". He also made a cameo appearance in the video.

Personal life

Charles is from Bethlehem, New York, and graduated from Bethlehem Central High School in June 2017, with CoverGirl's slogan, "Easy, Breezy, Beautiful", emblazoned across his graduation cap.[16][17][18] Charles is openly gay.[19]

Controversies

In February 2017, Charles caused controversy when he tweeted an offensive joke about Africa and Ebola. He later issued an apology by stating; "I am extremely sorry for what I said. There are no excuses. No one owes me forgiveness, but I've learned a lot from the experience. I hope that the people who might look up to me will be able to learn from my mistakes and not repeat them".[20]

In March 2017, Charles caused controversy again when YouTube make-up artist Thomas Halbert posted screenshots of previous conversations with Charles where he admitted his story regarding his rise in notability was falsified. Charles originally claimed he had his high school prom photographs retaken with a ring light,[21] however the conversation revealed that he had actually edited the photographs and contacted the photographer.[22]
