This Student Brought A Ring Light To His Senior Portrait Because He Wanted His Highlight To Glow

Remember in high school when we’d have the most embarrassing senior high photos for the yearbook? Well James Charles’ is anything but embarrassing, in fact it is crazy on-fleek, as he wanted it to be. James Charles is a young makeup artist, occasional Youtuber and avid makeup junkie. After having his senior pictures taken the first time, it didn’t live up to James’s standards. He quickly emailed the studio asking if he could have a re-shoot, to which the studio politely allowed but this time James brought in his ring light to makeup his highlight pop.

The result? A senior portrait worthy of the makeup Gods. Not only did his highlight glow, his whole makeup look was on-point. In fact, it was so good even Zendaya retweeted it saying, “You win”. The tweet quickly earned 32,000 retweets and 84,000 likes (as of writing). The moral of the story? Never underestimate a makeup junkie’s love for glowing highlighters.
