But before we jump into that I do want to say I do have a few things to go over in today’s video intro before we actually get started. So, I’ll try to keep it short and sweet and brief and try to spice it up with a little bit of editing. So Hi sisters! *Laughing* First and probably most importantly I want to say a major, major thank you to guys because a few days ago, this YouTube channel just hit 7 million sister subscribers!

Okay, literally 86 years later; now that that is all on the table and we are ready to go, I’m so pumped tell you guys about today’s brand-new video! A few weeks ago on my YouTube channel, I uploaded a video called “Makeup Artist Tries Drawing” if you have not yet checked it out, make sure to click right up here. But basically, I shared with you guys the one art form that actually got me started into makeup in the first place Which was not makeup, and was drawing, with charcoal. And one of the top comments that I saw a lot over and over again on the video is that instead of drawing with charcoal, I should actually try drawing with makeup. What a lot of you guys may not know is that that artwork actually already exists and they’re called face charts. I wasn’t exactly able to find information on the origin or invention of face charts. But, I do know that they are popularized by one of the biggest beauty brands in the entire world known for their artistry, MAC cosmetics. Face charts are basically outlines of faces printed on a very very special type of paper for makeup artists are able to play with different makeup looks before they actually put them on a model for the runway. Because of the fact that these charts are flat and are basically a blank canvas, there are endless possibilities of different looks and designs that people can make and whether it be for a runway, or for Instagram, a lot of different artists have actually taken face charting to the next level and have been able to make careers out of them. milk1422 and cassiemua are two different artists that come to mind that had built the majority of their following off the beautiful face charts And a lot of different , like myself, have recreated on their very different YouTube channels and Instagram feeds. Y’all know me, I always got to be a little bit extra so I got made, custom printed sister James Charles face charts! I’ve never done this before but I do you think it’ll be very very fun. So, without further ado, I have all of my makeup laid out here in front of me. I’m so excited to jump into this! Don’t forget to watch until the very end for a very special contest regarding these face charts and let’s get glam! On paper! [laughing] All right, you guys we are all set up and ready to go. We have the regular camera angle that you guys are used to seeing and we also have… This good and fun and fresh camera angle right down here! I think I want to do the paper’s makeup in the same order that I would do with my makeup, starting off with the skin, so; obviously I can’t use foundation, I can only use powder. So I have the Anastasia contour book which has literally been sitting on my shelf for the longest time It’s like a display item; has dust on it, sorry! [Laughing] But I think this would be a really good to use for today’s video being that it is literally a book of a million different color powders. Hello? Okay, so starting off, I’m just gonna grab my… I guess I’m just gonna like, put… it on there. I don’t really even know, I’m so excited! Okay, I going to grab my MAC regular powder foundation and just put this on there. [gasp] oh my god! I think I’m just gonna lay down a light layer of skin because I think I want to make my skin tone slightly darker than what it normally is–no scandals, please! It’s also doing this weird thing where if you rub it in too hard, the paper, like, starts to get splotchy. Oh my god. This is challenging, hello. Okay, I guess this looks interesting. [Music] Mhm… mhm… mhm… This is hard! Okay, I’m gonna start contouring. Hmm, I’m gonna take the shade Fawn which is like a very famous Anastasia contour color, it is a cool tone brown shade, and start shading the sides. Well, my cheekbone is like here. [gasp] That kinda looks good! TEA! Okay, same thing on the other side. Just need to make myself look sister snatched. How do people do this, and like, make it look real? That’s what I’m… Like what? Hello? That’s a harsh contour! Eurrgh Mmm, kinda looks pretty though. I mean, I guess it kind of looks good. We do need some contour underneath the lip because I have lots of filler. [chuckle] I wonder how they get it so you, like, don’t go outside the lines. That’s a good third grade question, but it applies! Oh, we need to contour the nose. [gasps] Oh my god, fun! I’m gonna grab my tiny little nose contouring brush and really, you know, just snatch it good Do you see how pinched that is? Hello! Gonna bring it up here, Into the brow region because there’s gonna be contours there later on with eyeshadow. Then I’m gonna blend that out. Oh my god guys, this is a kinda turning out low-key good so far. [Gasp] Oh my god, I’m excited. I love being an artist. Oh, we’re gonna have to actually like sketch out my nose. This is hard. How do I do this? Okay. That’s the scariest nose contour I’ve ever seen in my entire life Okay, Cupid’s bow. Okay this looks like… Okay, dare I say… Well that rhymed, haha! I wonder if using a Beauty Blender and like dipping into the actual powder and placing it on that way will actually like make a difference? No, well, actually yeah kind of. No, definitely! Okay. Oh, wow, I’m a genius. Literally using a white eyeshadow currently to highlight my face, so, that’s good. Oh my god, this is the tea. This looks so good. Oh my god, that is so pretty! I’m litera-okay. Yay, now I’m excited. I figured it out. I’ve cracked the code. Oh my god. Now, this is a person. Ah! Wow I snapped, okay great. I’m kind of like happy with this so far, low-key. The lowest of keys. We’re gonna start on the eyebrows. So, for the eye region and the brow region, I am going to be using the Morphe 39A pallete. This is the palette that I modeled before last year for holiday season and in it’s back in stock. Don’t forget to use coach James for 10% off. Of course! I’m gonna grab the MAC brow marker and the shade Spiked and use that to kind of sketch out the outline of the brow first. Okay, there we go that looks stunty! Oh my god, tea! This actually looks kind of good. Okay, literally I had a guide to work with on paper and somehow my brows are still not even. How did that even happen? I don’t deserve this. Okay, so I’m gonna start this eyeshadow look. I think I want to do like a sunset smokey eye moment with a pop of blue, which is perfect for the 39A palette so I’m first gonna start by grabbing an orange shade and my M433; use code James for 10% off And, I guess let’s just like put it on there. Okay. Okay, blending it out for real one. Oh my god, I literally love this! Next, going to grab a red shade. [gasp] So pretty. Hello, why did that one go on so easy and the other one didn’t; what? Oh my god, this looks so pretty. Hello. This is literally so fun. I’m obsessed with this Oh, look at how good this looks! Oh, TEA!! So, now I’m gonna add in a little pop of blue on the eyelid which should actually be pretty easy. I’m just gonna start by grabbing the kind of navy shade from the palette and give it a little bit of a Sister spritz since it is a metallic shade and popping that kind of right in the m- That looks bad. That looks gross! Oh, so much better! Thank God, I was sister spooked for a second there. Now, we’re going to move on to the eyelashes, and not even going to lie, I am a little bit- kinda really nervous for this just because of the fact that I’m really really not good at drawing lashes I struggle with this in portraits and obviously I’m going to struggle with it here, so, huuuh! Uh, I’m first gonna start by just shading in the eyeball with a light brown color. I guess I’m just gonna use my regular liner to try to draw in eyelashes and pray that it looks somewhat okay. [sigh] [sigh] That’s an ugly lash! No! Ugh! Okay, I’m going to draw in the bottom lashes. That’s like, okay. It could’ve worse but it’s like, not bad! Going to add in the highlights of the eye. Oh my god, that actually made it look real! Tea! All right, you guys I think that is eye number one all done! I’m definitely gonna go touch up, but I have another eye to do off-camera and that took me quite a long time! So, I’m gonna go ahead and try as hard as I possibly can to get them symmetrical and I’ll be right back to finish off the rest of the look! All right, you guys we are back in both eyes are all complete. I’m actually loving how this is turning out so far. This is definitely hard, like I expected it to be, but I am definitely getting the hang of things a little bit more. This is definitely art form that takes a lot of practice and a whole lot of concentration and trial and error as well. Now that we have both eyes all complete, we are actually pretty close to done! I accidentally may have done the majority of the nose off camera because I forgot that I was not recording! Oops! So that only leaves us with kind of like the cheeks and the lips left to go. So I’m gonna grab the MAC blush in the shade Peaches. You guys know, that’s my all-time favorite. I’m just gonna use like a flat packing foundation brush and really stipple it on there. [gasp] Pretty! Oh my god, this is so pretty! James Charles getting excited over a piece of paper for 30 minutes straight. I really snapped, no offense. For lips, I’m gonna go ahead and apply the Kylie liquid lipstick in the shade One Wish. I really hope that you can like, Put this on there. Oh my god, why is my bottom lip in this photo so big? She’s a beefy girl! Too much Juvederm. Is this me having a revelation? No, it’s very normal-sized! So I’m gonna outline the inside now. I need to sketch in my little teeth that always show through. Okay. Now I’m gonna use the Anastasia liquid lipstick in the shade Milkshake and use this to kind of highlight the, like, center portion of the lips to like make it look actually 3-D and not stupid Okay, so I’m pretty much on at this point, but the one thing that I’m like not loving how it looks is the nose contour, because, It’s hard! Um, so I’m gonna add some fake freckles to distract from my lack of contouring ability! and then I’m just gonna use that MAC brow pencil or brow marker thing and draw on some freckles. Alright, you guys, I think it’s time to show you sisters the finished face chart! Please take it easy on me, This is only my first try and probably my last for a while, but Oh my god! Okay, tea. On camera it actually looks really good. Hello! Whoa, on camera it looks the best! Wait, I’m so proud of this! Okay, Let’s spell the tea [slurping] Overall, I’m really proud of how this turned out and I’m actually really really happy with it too, But, starting off I was really not thinking too positively because this is really really hard I definitely picked up on the fact that with this paper You definitely need to stamp in the actual product that you’re using. Specifically the foundation powders that I was using to kind of lay down the base early on, because blending really is not the tea And it actually just ends up picking up the powder from the paper. I really, really love how the brows and eyes turned out I feel like this is very very similar to how my face would look if I had this look on which of course was the goal with this. I do wish the lashes were a little bit better, I said in the beginning going into it that I didn’t think they were gonna be that good, and they definitely could look a whole lot more realistic I probably should have used a little bit of a lighter liner and lighter pressure because they look a little bit chunky. Not gonna lie, but the eyes, definitely happy with! That’s where the nose and fake freckles; definitely not my strongest part of my face chart. I will say that the freckles did end up looking a little bit better once I kind of layered over a face powder and a little bit more kind of blush color to make the freckles look sunkissed like I normally do on my makeup. But they do look a little bit more intense, and, shading a nose no matter what medium you’re using whether it be makeup or charcoal, like you guys saw in the last video, is really really hard and it’s definitely not my strong suit at all. Last, but probably not least, the lips are Not good! All that being said though, that is my face chart all complete. I love how it turned out but this video is not yet complete because like I told you guys in the beginning I have a very, very special contest that I am so pumped to tell you guys about.
