Whether you are a member of his fan base called “the Sisters“ or not, you must have heard of James Charles, a famous Internet personality. Lately, he’s been facing some hate from the public, and it did some damage.
Regardless of your opinion of him, you must give him at least a bit of credit. He is a beauty YouTuber and a make-up artist- and he’s great at what he does. That, no one can deny him.
Born on May 23, 1999, James Charles Dickinson grew up in Bethlehem, New York. That is where he finished high school, back in 2017. At the time, he was already considered an “Internet celebrity”.
He had always been interested in the world of beauty. One of his first jobs was as a hairstylist. If you look at the earliest posts on his Instagram profile, you’ll see pictures of him with his hair done. He also did prom hairstyles for several girls.
He decided to share his love for make- up and cosmetics with others, so he started his YouTube channel. This is considered to be the start of his career; back in December 2015.
As a male beauty guru, soon after, James gained fame for his make-up tutorials, reviews, and vlogs. As of this writing, the channel has 16, 3 million subscribers. He had more subscribers, but earlier this year, during the Tati Westbrook feud, he had lost around a million fans in less than 24 hours.
His Instagram profile now has almost 16 million followers and around 800 posts, and his Twitter account has 4.3 million followers.
He is proud to show off that he is the face of Covergirl since 2016; their first male ambassador, at that. A year later, in 2017, the then 18-year-old walked the runway during the LA Fashion Week, collabing with MarcoMarco for their Six ½ collections.
At the 8th Streamy Awards, James Charles won the award for the best channel in the beauty category.
The peak of his success was the release of his own eyeshadow palette. The project was supported by Morphe Cosmetics, whose fan he had been for a really long time.
He was invited to this year’s Met Gala, making him the first Instagram star to ever be invited to this prestige event.
The young star had made a few enemies. At one point, he called Ariana Grande the rudest celebrity he’s ever met.
Earlier this year, he stepped into a drama with Tati Westbrook after promoting a product which is a rival to Tati’s. The two “spilled some tea” about each other, and the Internet’s reaction was quite fierce.
James Charles Net Worth 2023
As of 2023, James Charles’ net worth has reached the number of $12 million. I don’t know about you, but I think that must mean that he is doing something right. As he is still posting content on his YouTube channel, the number is estimated to grow in the future.
