James Charles Becomes The First Coverboy

Makeup is art, and art shouldn't be limited to a specific gender.

This last week, Covergirl announced its first ever male spokesperson. Katy Perry, one of the current Covergirls, announced on her Instagram that James Charles is the newest CoverBOY.

James Charles has become famous on Instagram for his amazing makeup looks. He currently has over 673 thousand followers. Most recently, his picture of him reapplying his highlighter before retaking his senior pictures has been circling the internet. He's gotten thousands of comments on Twitter, Instagram and his recently made YouTube.

James already has his foot in the door with brand deals. He currently is a brand ambassador for Benefit, another popular makeup brand.

Covergirl says that he is going to be heavily involved with the release of their newest mascara. It's not hard to see why Covergirl chose James. His makeup artist skill are amazing, especially for someone who just started applying makeup less than a year ago. However, thousands of people are not happy with Covergirl's choice. They're mad because James identifies as a male, and they believe that Covergirl should stick to female representatives. Many have even said they are going to stop buying Covergirl makeup just because of it.

For me, I'm exactly the opposite. I've been following James for quite a while and since the beginning, I've been so impressed with what he can do. I certainly will never be able to do that. As for supporting Covergirl, I'm not going to buy any other drugstore brand. Just by this, they've shown that everyone is equal, and that no matter someone's gender, everyone can wear makeup. Makeup is art, and art shouldn't be limited to a specific gender.

What are your thoughts on James Charles becoming the new face of Covergirl?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
