James’ new look is a far cry from his typical longer dark locks

The YouTuber first boasted his new look to his eight million Twitter followers. 

One pictures showed the star looking glam with a smooth head, long lashes and thick black eyeliner. 

James completed his look with a pouty nude lip, long acrylic nails and a black turtleneck sweatshirt. 

He gave his fiercest stare straight into the camera as he dined on an outdoor patio in LA.

“BREAKING: James Charles to play Jeff Bezos in new biopic. Expected to hit streaming platforms this summer,” one person joked of the Amazon founder. 

Another retweet said: “When you order scrambled eggs but they come hard-boiled.”

Many fans slammed James for ‘faking’ his new look with a bald cap

“You know you’re falling out of popularity when you have to put a bald cap on to get some attention,” one person insisted. 

Another tweeted: “When you’re starved for attention… Wear a bald cap.”

“James Charles really does anything for attention on social media,” one more wrote.

The upstate New York native skyrocketed to fame in 2016 after a tweet featuring on online makeup tutorial went viral. 

Shortly after, he became the first male ambassador for CoverGirl cosmetics and went on to win multiple Teen Choice Awards and People Choice Awards.

The online personality has been involved with a series of social media controversies over the years. 

In October, the makeup sensation shared a tutorial where he got Kylie Jenner glam for Halloween.

However, the KUWTK star was slammed by fans for the “embarrassing” amount of photoshop she used in an “unrecognizable” side-by-side photo. 

The video started out with an all-natural Kylie baring no makeup and having her hair up in two clips. 

In the 16 minute clip, the close pals poured some wine and gossiped about fun times together as James did her spooky look.

When compared side-by-side to grabs from the original video, fans called out the KUWTK star for appearing to “photoshop” herself yet again

One person commented: “What the Kylie? She stretched her face to look like Mila Kunis!”
