To say it's a good time to be apart of the beauty world is a major understatement. It's a fantastic time. So many major beauty brands are embracing a very positive social shift as of late, and we couldn't be more excited. Male makeup enthusiasts are finally getting tapped for some some seriously amazing roles in the beauty world. Here are the male beauty brand ambassadors you need to know!
James Charles, CoverGirl
THE SECRETS OUT.. so beyond excited to finally announce that I am the new face of #COVERGIRL and the first ever coverBOY. 😱 I am so thankful and excited and cannot wait to show you all what we have in store. Make sure you go check out @covergirl on Instagram for more info! AND YES I know I have lipstick on my teeth 😬😂 it was a looonnnnggg day.
A few months back, CoverGirl became the first major beauty brand to tap a male beauty blogger as the brand's fist-ever CoverBoy. Charles is 17-year-old Instagram star and ah-mazing makeup artist. Take one look at his Instagram, and you'll instantly see his affinity for makeup and his fearless, boundry-breaking attitude.
Manny Gutierrez, Maybelline
Next to get snagged up by one of our fave makeup brands: Manny Gutierrez a.k.a. Manny MUA. Manny's impeccable skill and passion for beauty radiate in every video, so we can't say we're too surprised by his new gig. Along with YouTube beauty star Shayla Mitchell, Manny starred in a video campaign for the brand's launch of The Colossal Big Shot Mascara
Lewys Ball, Rimmel London
The latest social star to get scooped up by a classic beauty brand is only 17 years old! UK-based Ball is a self-taught makeup artist who is not only our go-to for a wicked cat eye but for some serious empowerment inspo as well. In a recent video for the brand, Lewys is featured sayin, "Anybody can wear makeup, no matter who you are." Preach!
Bonus: Gabriel Zamora, MAC Cosmetics
So he might not officially be a brand ambassador, but Gabriel Zamora did just recently earn a spot as one of the major beauty influencers teaming up with MAC for a very special upcoming spring launch. MAC is collaborating with 10 beauty influencers—bloggers, makeup artists, and beauty gurus—from across the globe for a hot new launch, which apparently will include a lipstick created by each influencer.
