Anyone who doesn’t live under a rock knows who James Charles is. In fact, at this point, he has become a household name. If you are a non-makeup person and don’t know him, we can give you the benefit of the doubt, but if you are a person who loves makeup, you most probably know who he is – it’s going to be a shock if you don’t.
For years since he started out, he has wowed audiences with his makeup prowess. He is extremely skillful and artistic. He has released his own makeup palettes. He can sing. He has even starred in his own reality show! What can’t this hairstylist-turned-beauty-guru do?
We all know he is capable of a lot of things. What fans (or should we say sisters?) really want to know is if he can speak Spanish. It may be hard to believe, but this is one of the top questions on google searches related to him. Well, suffice to say it, we wonder the same thing, but first let’s fill you in on who he is if you don’t already know.
Who Is James Charles?
James Charles is a very well-known YouTuber, known for his contributions to the beauty community. Over the years, he has gained a massive fan following for his YouTube videos. He does not strictly stick to makeup tutorials. In fact, he does a lot of fun and creative challenges. He currently has 25.7 million subscribers on YouTube, whom he likes to refer to as “sisters.”
The now-famed beauty guru started out as a hairstylist. At the age of 17, he amassed 147K subscribers on YouTube, with fans and other fellow beauty gurus welcoming him warmly into the beauty community.
Since then, in his journey as a beauty guru/influencer/YouTuber, he has done a lot of experimentation with not only his makeup but his entire career. He has had his fair share of ups and downs, but in the end, he has always persevered. He is also very appreciative of his fans, for they have made him who he is now.
Habla él Español?
James Charles has always taken interest in activities even outside his comfort zone. He has meandered into fashion, he has sung songs (whether his fans liked it or not), and he has even gone so far as to try baking on his channel. It is only natural for fans (or maybe haters) to wonder if he has other, lesser-known skillsets.
The skillset in question here relates to language. The masses want to know if he can speak Spanish. To start off, there is very obvious evidence of him speaking Spanish in a couple of YouTube videos. In fact, he speaks Spanish in the entirety of those videos, and he speaks it quite well. He has also made it known that he took Spanish for ten whole years in school.
So far, he has two videos on his channel that involve him speaking in Spanish. In one video uploaded in 2019, we see him speaking Spanish quite fluently. Save for his heavy American accent, his pronunciation of words and conjugation of verbs are almost flawless. You could even say he has two separate personalities for each of the languages he speaks (English and Spanish).
In the other Spanish-heavy video uploaded in September of 2020, he is not alone. You can see him conversing in Spanish with fellow YouTuber Kimberly Loaiza, who happens to be Mexican. In the video, he gives Loaiza a makeover while bantering with her and discussing what it’s like to live in Mexico.
All there’s left to say after this is that James Charles is a beauty guru of many talents, and we can only wish to be as multitalented as him!
