It is quite amazing to see how Maybelline is following in the footsteps of other major companies in its acknowledgement of boy beauty influencers.
Earlier, Giorgio Armani had launched a gender-neutral lip balm called Him/Her Lipcare. CoverGirl also named James Charles its first CoverGuy, and brands like Milk Makeup and Anastasia Beverly Hills have also been featuring men in advertising campaigns.
Maybelline, one of the most popular American makeup brands, was found by a 19-year old entrepreneur named Tom Lyle Williams in 1915.
