HI SISTERS! In today’s video, I sing my way through my makeup routine by improvising lyrics to iconic songs including 7 Rings, Shallow, Without Me, High Hopes, Thank U, Next, Girls Like You, Sweet But Psycho & more! Enjoy and don’t forget to thumbs up and SUBSCRIBE!
James Charles here.
And welcome back to my YouTube channel.
Oh my gosh, you guys, I am so excited for today’s new video.
Oh my god.
I have not posted an episode of this in almost an entire year.
And I don’t even know why, because this is literally one of my all-time favorite videos to film.
Judging by the title, you already know what is going on.
But today we are mixing my love of makeup and music and we are doing an episode of singing my makeup routine.
In case you have not seen my other episodes of singing my makeup routine.
Basically, it is a series that I do here on this YouTube channel where I go through and do my everyday makeup routine, but along the way of each different makeup step, my team has selected a few of the most popular songs right now that they know.
I love and they’re going to challenge me and I’m going to have to improv my way through the songs and rewrite them to the steps of a makeup routine while doing my actual makeup.
I know it sounds so crazy to improv about makeup and it is really really hard to.
But of course that is the challenge of it and it makes it so much fun.
And every once in a while, I will say we do get quite an iconic bop.
So without further ado, if you would like to see me sing my way through a makeup routine, keep on watching.
I am not claiming to own any of the songs that are about to be used in this video.
Full rights go to the respective writers, producers and singers of these songs and proper credits, as well as links, will be listed in the description box down below.
That being said, doing these parodies is fully protected under the parody law, and this is completely legal.

♪, Oh ♪.
Alright, you guys, I am so excited for this video.
Let’S just jump right in because yesterday I actually got laser hair removal on my face and as you can see, my skin is really really not happy about it.
So I really want to cover it up.
So, let’s just jump right: in.
I’m going to first start off by priming my face using the touch-up silk canvas primer.
[, Gaba ].
That is actually perfect, because your first song is almost up.
Already For primer number one [ Gaba ] Yeah.
Well, this song is number one, so I thought it would be fitting.
For the — 7 Rings.
[ Gaba ] 7 Rings.
By Ariana Grande.
(, “ 7 Rings” by Ariana Grande ) ♪, Starting my makeup.
I’Ve got to prime my face ♪ ♪ Choose carefully, so it helps perfect.

I see it.
I like it.
I want it.
I prime it.
I prime it.
I prime it.
I want it.
I prime it.
This rap is awful.
I don’t even know where to go from there.
(, laughs, ).
I don’t know how to rap.
I’m not a rapper.
You know that song is number one for a reason.
I feel like.
We should leave it there and let Ariana take care of it.
[, Gaba ].
I think she’s got it under control.
I think she’s a-okay.
Doing just fine.
, [ Gaba ] Doing just fine.
She saw it and she wanted it and she definitely got it and I don’t need to try to take it.
(, “ 7 Rings” by Ariana Grande ).
So now that my face is all primed and ready to go.
I’M gon na go with my Too Faced Born This Way foundation and today I’m in the shade vanilla.
Maybe I guess we’re gon na find out.
I mean not usually why [ Gaba ], So that’s like something you can’t go without Yeah.
, I would say: so.
[ Gaba, ] Kind of like this video that you could not make without me: ( Gaba, laughing ) Yeah.
That is correct.
Where are you going with this [ Gaba ]?
Do you get it? Because the next song is [, Both ] Without me.
[, Gaba ] By Halsey.
Okay, clever little segue there.
No need to be shady but great.
( “ Without Me” by Halsey ) Cover up my skin and facial hair.
Don’T forget your ears.
Put it up there.
What if this shade isn’t a match?
My followers will clock me and count on that.
Blend up my foundation.
Hopefully no oxidation.
Oh my god, who put you up there.
(, mumbles ), putting on my foundation.
Hopefully, no oxidation.
Cover up the texture, get it to be smooth.
Sponge is what you should use.
Put on my foundation.
Hopefully no oxidation.
Oh my God that was good.
( laughing ) [ Gaba ].
You lost it for a second but points back for –.
[ Gaba ], One saving it and two rhyming foundations with oxidation.
[, Gaba, ], Kinda, good, kinda fresh.
You love a sister’s lying test.
( laughing )!
What’S going on too ,’cause, this shade is not matching.
Getting ready for the clock.
( “ Without Me” by Halsey ).
My skin is looking literally so better.
Now, I’m so scared.
This camera is way too HD for this.
Okay, I’m gon na go put on some concealer.
I’m just gon na use the Too Faced Born This Way concealer.
And the color’s snow, because my spray tan literally already gone from a week ago.
I’m seriously so sad.
It’S gon na go on right, here.
, Already [ Gaba, ] Yeah.
I guess okay.
[ Gaba ] We’re doing Young Blood by [, Both ] Five Seconds of Summer.
I love this song.
I’Ve been singing it non-stop, but — ♪ Conceal, ♪ Okay.
( “ Young Blood” by Five Seconds of Summer, ) Conceal, dark circles, dark circles.
How do your eyes cover up those bags from staying up all night?
Full coverage full coverage, You’re able to hide ooh, Ooh, conceal, dark circles, dark circles.
How do your eyes cover up those bags from staying up last night, Conceal full coverage, You’re able to hide whoo ooh Wait.
Is there any more of that song No.
( laughing )?
You picked the song.
Are you kidding [ Gaba ], It’s popular.
You’re setting me up for failure.
Are you kidding [ Gaba ]?
I think that was good.
[, Gaba ].
You clearly knew it.
It sounded good.
That song is the bomb.
[ Gaba ], I’m still waiting for the best of your makeup, routine album.
You know there have to be, like you know, like best like good clips, for there to actually be that yeah.
[ Gaba ].
I don’t know, I think that there have been some bops.
( “ Young Blood” by Five Seconds of Summer ).
How did I somehow end up looking lighter than my neck?
So we were all ready to go.
Is nice and blended out.
My skin is actually looking a lot better now, thank god for a little full coverage moment.
But now we need to set this in place with some powder, because I don’t want to look cake-y and I’m already getting there.
So we’re going to fix it a little bit.
Give me a song for every step in my makeup routine, so far.
I guess that is the point.
[ Gaba ].
I thought that was the point.
What’S the song [ Gaba ] Girls, like You Adam Levine.
Oh [, Gaba ].
That should be an easy one.
♪ Girls, like you ♪ Yeah, I feel like this will be easy.

No, this is going great.
Is this going to be our best episode yet [ Gaba ], I mean so far.
( “ Girls Like You” ) by Maroon 5, So my face is baking in place.
We’Re going to move on to the next step, which is of course going to be the eyebrows.
I’M gon na grab my Anastasia Beverly Hills, brow.
, Raising the shade medium brown and I’m going to get ready to fill them in — (, Gaba, laughing ), [, Gaba ].
There’S no one else to do this.
Can I help you [ Gaba ].
You have another song to do.
