In the hopes to be the next James Charles (lmao, if anyone even wants to be him), high school student Kevin Kodra woke up at 4 a.m. to do his makeup for picture day.
“I couldn’t even get my A’s straight,” he wrote on Instagram. "In honour of my 18th birthday, here’s my senior photo 😉. Really though, 17 was a wild year. I made memories that I’ll never forget. Thank you to everyone who was by my side every single day. From friends to family and even you guys, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. Let’s grab 18 by the balls and make it my bitch 😉 ps. Can y’all stop with the James Charles comparisons, we’re literally two different people. It’s not fair to either of us."
Talking to Cosmpolitan.com he revealed the effort that went into this look.
"All of my yearbook pictures were really bad, like really bad," he told the site. "I either had a bad breakout or bad hair colour (because I went through a lot of hair colour stages), and it was just really bad. So I said, let me just go all out. Let me do what I love doing the most: glam bronzy looks."
What a king. Now, Kevin hopes to use his platform to inspire others.
"A man in makeup is normal," he said. "I want my positive experience with my identity to become normal and break the stigma against not only men in makeup but also one's sexuality and identity. And I wanted to have my final hurrah in high school. I wanted to have my makeup on full-glam so that I could [send the message to] people to do whatever you want. No matter what obstacle you have throughout your four years, it’s not going to matter later on. It’s whatever you do that’s going to set your path."
