CoverGirl’s first male spokesmodel broke barriers — then unfortunately built some of his own, and now he’s trying to make amends. Seventeen-year-old James Charles came under fire when he tweeted a “joke” about catching Ebola before a school trip to South Africa.
Katy Perry’s holographic new music video for “Chained to the Rhythm” is here, and with it is a whole new world named Oblivia. Perry spends most of the video in a teal eye shade that somehow complements her pastel pink hair perfectly. Would you expect anything less than a colorful and coordinate look from Katy Kat, who’s become the unofficial Princess Peach of Hollywood?
When CoverGirl announced its first male spokesmodel in James Charles, he was hailed as an inspiring figurehead for the diversity-in-beauty movement. Having sent out the tweet on Thursday morning, four hours later Charles had deleted it after it was met with backlash.
The year 2016 was a big one for beauty brands breaking diversity barriers and shattering stereotypes. This year, there was buzz over CoverGirl’s first cover boy, James Charles Dickinson, and the brand recently signed its first Muslim ambassador.
All eyes are on Janelle Monáe’s hair. Literally. The singer and Hidden Figures actress showed off her latest hair look on Instagram Tuesday afternoon. Her tresses were styled in two wavy buns and adorned with crafty googly eyes of various sizes all over. “ EVEN WHEN I’M SLEEPING I KEEP 20 eyes open,” she captioned one of the images. Talk about giving the hairy eyeball ! The eye-catching (sorry, had to) look was created by Monáe’s hairstylist Nikki Nelms , who has been absolutely slaying the singer’s hairstyles as of late. Monáe’s quirky taste and fearless, though still restrained, sense of style is part of what makes her aesthetic so great from head to toe. The singer usually steps out in shades of black and white, which she says is a nod to her family’s working class roots . "I think it's either you decide you're going to embrace what makes you unique and what your purpose is, or not,” she told Yahoo Beauty. “I try to keep things in perspective. I come from a working class family. My parents wore uniforms every day. My life is dedicated to being of service. A lot of it has to do with listening to those around me and allowing that to inspire me. And not doing things for selfish reasons.” Monáe’s unique hair choices make her an even bigger force to be reckoned with in the beauty game. The singer is already an ambassador for Covergirl, and is very much enjoying representing the brand, especially now that it is moving in a direction that champions inclusivity . "I'm so thankful to still be a Covergirl. They're embracing so many unique women, transgender, LGBTQ, muslims. They are redefining beauty. We all are cover girls. Even men can be cover girls. It's a state of mind," Monáe said. But though she has consistently been rolling out fierce looks and is someone who clearly enjoys experimenting with style, Monáe knows that true swag comes from within. "It's about being confident in who you are. When they saw that in me, I hope that the message was loud and clear. I didn't have to change who I was. I didn't have to strive for perfection. Perfection is often the enemy of greatness." Click through above to see some of Monáe’s latest and greatest hairstyles. Let's keep in touch!

By the time you’re 17, you have a YouTube channel, Zendaya is a huge fan, and a little company called CoverGirl has decided to name you the first ever cover boy.
James Charles is CoverGirl’s first cover boy — and that is freaking out one mom. While much of the world has been delighting over the debut of CoverGirl’s first-ever cover boy, 17-year-old James Charles, one Christian blogger mom has called out the makeup-wearing teen — and the So Lashy! mascara commercial he stars in — for creating “turmoil” in her home. “Mommy, why doesn’t daddy wear makeup?” is what Nicole Dean’s 6-year-old son asked when he caught a glimpse of Charles on TV recently.
Coming off the news of James Charles being named the first male CoverGirl, the brand continues its message of inclusivity by naming Muslim beauty blogger Nura Afia an ambassador for the new So Lashy! BlastPro Mascara.
Male makeup gurus are having a moment, and James Charles Dickinson is adding another. The 17-year-old YouTube sensation, known simply as James Charles on social media, boasts more than 70,000 subscribers, which comparatively isn’t as much as some other major male beauty YouTubers, like Manny Gutierrez (Manny Mua) and Patrick Starrr (both nearing 2 million each). Still, it’s more than enough for CoverGirl, which announced Charles as its latest ambassador — and the first young man to receive such an honor.
Senior beauty editor Joanna Douglas picks out the best budget-friendly mascaras. (Photo: Henry Leutwyler) As a beauty editor there is one question I’m asked the most — by friends and strangers alike: “What’s the best drugstore mascara?” One of the potentially germiest beauty products, it’s best to toss mascara after six months, so shelling out on pricey designer wands isn’t ideal for everyone. Seeking glam, amped up lashes from an affordable tube?
Sofía Vergara would rather not wear a nude lip on her wedding day. The deep red shade, created in collaboration with CoverGirl, is called Sofía in Love, and unfortunately, it won’t be sold in stores.
Stephen Colbert is known for taking jabs at politicians, but last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the talk show host not only gave CoverGirl’s limited-edition Star Wars collection a spot in the hot seat, but also gave Darth Vader a beauty makeover with the cosmetics line. “As a diehard fan, I’ve made a solemn pledge to buy and use any product to have a Star Wars tie-in,” he said, introducing his actual Luke Skywalker bathroom set from 1977, which comes with shampoo, bubble bath, a comb, and a bar of soap — or as Colbert calls it, “Luke himself trapped inside a bar of soap, foreshadowing Han Solo being trapped in carbonite.” So, when Colbert saw one of the commercials for the CoverGirl collection, featuring Janelle Monáe asking “Which Side Are You On?” he actually thought it was a trailer for the upcoming film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Sofia Vergara thinks nude makeup can be boring and unflattering. Sofia Vergara is a red carpet pro, but even she would be a little nervous about prepping for her wedding day, right? The 43-year-old Modern Family star and CoverGirl spokesperson is treating her upcoming nuptials to Joe Manganiello like any other big event.
“Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” may not hit theaters until December 18, but anticipation is already high and the brand collaborations are in full force. You can expect to see Star Wars branding everywhere from Subway to Verizon, but there’s one collab you can’t miss: Star Wars for CoverGirl. Because, yes, women (like me) love Star Wars, and the beauty looks are a big part of it. The cosmetics brand’s global creative design director and makeup legend Pat McGrath has created six eye-catching beauty looks inspired by the upcoming Star Wars film — some from the light side and some from the dark side.
The girls’ empowerment movement has pledged $5 million over the next five years to fund nonprofit organizations and individuals who are helping women break barriers. Through the web series, O’Brien, a former CNN anchor, is aiming to tell stories of women beyond the glossy magazine pages and red carpets.
COVERGIRL Full Lash Bloom Mascara ($8) is about to become a staple for low-key looks. The newest mascara to join the COVERGIRL family thoroughly coats lashes without leaving them stiff or spider-like. The secret lies in a beeswax-infused formula that’s more mousse-like than that of your typical mascara.

Despite my access to luxury brands and their newest formulas (yes, I love my job), I have a thing for cheap lipstick.
Vloggers are officially taking over the world! CoverGirl just named 25-year-old beauty guru Ingrid Nilsen, aka MissGlamorazzi, their official Glambassador.
