When 17-year-old James Charles was named the first male ambassador for CoverGirl this month, the company's message was simple: "All of our CoverGirls are role models and boundary-breakers, fearlessly expressing themselves, standing up for what they believe and redefining what it means to be beautiful," the makeup brand said in a press release.
