YouTuber Logan Paul may be known for his brawny muscles and blonde locs, but an age-old internet meme claiming to be the star shows him in a completely different light — and Paul has finally put the rumors to bed, once and for all.

Almost all internet regulars have seen the viral photo of the emo enthusiast with a facial structure not unlike Logan Paul’s, boasting a head full of black hair, a nose piercing, and black eyeshadow.

Although the look was popularly pinned on Paul for years due to their apparent similarities, the YouTuber denied that it was actually him in the photo — but rather than dispelling the rumors, he took things to the next level with a full-on emo makeover.

This viral photo of an emo man was popularly claimed to be Logan Paul, which the YouTube star finally addressed in a March 4 video.

That’s right: “The Maverick” actually decided to cosplay as the viral photo, donning a wig, foundation, eyeshadow, piercings and the entire nine yards in an attempt to recreate the meme.

Of course, it wasn’t enough to merely do a side-by-side comparison; instead, Paul pranked his friends with his makeover, giving them quite a shock with his best heavy metal voice impression.

“I finally know what it’s like to be that kid in high school that everyone just stares at,” he joked of his new look.

Logan Paul transformed himself into the viral internet meme as a way to get back at his friends for making fun of their apparent similarities.

The YouTuber and his squad even went to a nail salon to paint his nails black, where he fired off a few quips about his dark soul and bearing the weight of the world on his shoulders.

That’s not all: Logan couldn’t be a true emo without, of course, hitting up a Hot Topic store.

He completed his makeover with some gothic accessories set to My Chemical Romance’s ever-popular anthem ‘Welcome To The Black Parade.’

He later uploaded a photo of himself beside the internet meme that so many claimed was him, showing a distinct difference in their bone structure.

Although it’s slightly disappointing that it wasn’t actually the YouTube star, Paul successfully proved that he was not the man in the viral meme — although he likewise showed that he’s not above poking fun at himself from time to time.

Charli D’Amelio reveals her weirdest makeup faux pas with Maddie Ziegler

Charli D’Amelio is more than TikTok’s queen bee; she’s also a competitive dancer, Dunkin’ Donuts connoisseur, and a full-blown makeup mogul, although she hasn’t always been the expert beauty guru she is today.

Charli revealed her collaboration with makeup giant Morphe in late July alongside older sister Dixie, bringing forth a slew of new products for fans to use and express their inner creativity.

That’s not all; Dixie has also had her face beat by none other than James Charles, who gave the TikToker a glamorous makeover that has scored well over 34 million views at the time of writing.

Considering her love for all things beauty and makeup, it comes as little surprise that Charli has a solid handle on new trends and products — but this wasn’t always the case, as she revealed during an October 27 video with fellow TikToker Maddie Ziegler.

During the video, in which the two gals gave fans a tutorial of their everyday makeup routine, Charli revealed that she often asks other names in the beauty space for help — most notably, James Charles.

In fact, Charli revealed that it was James who taught her that you have to dampen your beauty blender before applying any product to the face, a fact that appeared to catch Ziegler completely off-guard.

YouTuber James Charles collaborated with D’Amelio for a colorful makeup look, where the TikTok star opened up about the more difficult parts of being internet famous.

“I’ve been able to definitely ask a lot of questions from a lot of makeup artists that I’ve worked with,” she began. “It’s been everything. Like, I didn’t even know that I was supposed to wet my beauty blender until like, a few months ago.”

“James was like, ‘You know you’re supposed to wet that, right?’” she continued, drawing a shocked, “Really?” from Ziegler. “And I was like, ‘Ohhh.’ I call James all the time, and I’m like, ‘Hey, I don’t know how to do this. Can you help me?’”

(Topic begins at 9:37)

Luckily for Charli, she’s surrounded by many kind and helpful creators who are available to help coach her through the ins and outs of makeup artistry — something that she claims she still “needs a little bit more help with.”

Both TikTokers were quick to note that everyone is on a different stage in their makeup journey, and no matter what part you’re at, it’s always a fun time experimenting with new looks and products.
