YouTube star and beauty guru James Charles has finally addressed the overwhelming sentiment that he and music artist Dua Lipa look alike with a shocking makeup transformation.

Although James Charles boasts his own iconic style, fans across the web have been claiming that he sports a similar look to massively popular celebrity and singer Dua Lipa.

In fact, Charles even mistook himself for the artist in late 2019, after doing a double take at a picture of Lipa on the red carpet at the American Music Awards.

Needless to say, his hilarious comparison sparked a slew of other posts analyzing their appearance — so much so that it has since become a popular bandwagon meme across the net.

Thus, Charles decided to acknowledge the speculation once and for all with a humorous makeup tutorial that “transformed” himself into Dua Lipa.

Massively popular music artist Dua Lipa bears an uncanny resemblance to YouTube star James Charles – or is it the other way around?

“Now, I will say, the public has never seen myself and Dua Lipa in the same place at the same time,” he joked. “So you can form your own opinions.”

The makeup artist went on to copy Lipa’s iconic look, taking special care to contour his nose to mimic her own nose shape and adding her signature bright eyeshadow to pull the ensemble together.

Considering Charles’ skill with makeup, it comes as little surprise that the beauty guru was able to pull off his first-ever celebrity transformation with flying colors (although his natural resemblance to the singer may have helped).

James Charles was shocked by his transformation into singer Dua Lipa – and we can’t blame him!

Even he was shocked after donning a wig in the similar style of Lipa’s hair from one of her Instagram posts, giving a shocked, “Oh my god! That’s Dua Lipa!” upon looking in the mirror, which was then echoed by other bystanders in the room.

“Oh my god, you guys, this is absolutely crazy!” he exclaimed. “Holy crap! I’ve gotten the references, I’ve seen the similarities, but oh my god. …now, I am literally Dua Lipa.”

While the singer has yet to respond to Charles’ insane lookalike makeup transformation, it’s safe to say that the two have never looked more similar. Perhaps he could pull off an impersonation to get VIP access at an event, much like an Ed Sheeran impersonator who scored special treatment at the KSI vs Logan Paul fight in 2018.

Popular YouTuber Ethan Dolan has revealed on Instagram the details of his long-term relationship with girlfriend Kristina Alice, who he reconnected with this week after spending most of quarantine apart.

Ethan and his twin Grayson originally rose to popularity on the video app Vine in 2013, and have since gone on to produce content on their highly successful YouTube channel with over 11 million subscribers.

While they have many adoring fans, they haven’t been exempt from drama, such as earlier in July when they were forced to address a homophobic slur used when explaining the bullying they received in high school. In the same month, Ethan released a video detailing how comments online about his acne had severely affected his well-being in the past year.

Last week Ethan revealed his girlfriend to the world on YouTube with his brother Grayson. After spending months apart Kristine was finally able to catch a flight out to Los Angeles from Australia where she lives.

On Monday, Ethan stunned his fans by posting a series of close, romantic pictures to his Instagram alongside an emotional message, which read: “To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life.”

He explained that last December was “one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life” and attributed his success and ability to get through to her support.

Part 1/3. To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life. Our trip to Hawaii on this day last year, will be a memory I cherish for the rest of my life. I will be forever grateful for how caring you were during one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life while living in Australia together last December. I wouldn’t have been able to create my most proud project last January without your constant support. When we were forced to quarantine together and be attached at the hip for an additional 5 months longer than we planned… I wasn’t even mad😌 When you had to go back to Australia without knowing when we’d be able to see each other again it was NOT CHILL. Although we unintentionally spent 4 months on opposite sides of the globe with a 17 hour time difference… I still felt closer than ever to you. The hours on FaceTime everyday and random gift care packages were fun. You completely took over my camera roll because I couldn’t help but to screenshot your face every couple seconds. Getting a little part of you tattooed on my arm also contributed to you feeling closer to me I guess 😝 Thank you for making me happy everyday. Thank you for giving me something to always look forward to. Thank you for making me a better version of myself. I love you Photos by: @jordenkeith

It seems as though Ethan will have more to say in the next few days after he labeled the caption only part 1 of 3. For now, the YouTuber has confirmed to the world that not only is he in a far better place than he was last year, but that he is well and truly taken.
