James Charles' TOP 10 MOST VIEWED YouTube Videos

...Can you guess which holds the top position at 54 million views?

24 January 2021 by Fachana Techamaneewat

James Charles is one of the most prominent Beauty YouTubers. With over 25 million subscribers, the 21-year-old has become the first male CoverGirl, launched Sisters Apparel clothing line, and the Sister Collection (in collaboration with Morphe) and gone on to host his own reality series "Instant Influencer" on YouTube.


But which of his YouTube videos helped push his name into the spotlight?


Here's the Top Ten MOST VIEWED James Charles YouTube Videos Of All Time.


10) Doing My Best Friend's Halloween Makeup ft. Charli, Dixie, Noah, Larray & Chase - 31,086,332 million views

In the video, James does his best friends make-up into iconic horror movie characters! There's Annabelle, Samara (from The Ring), Freddie Krueger, Chucky and Edward Scissorhands.


It's no wonder that it hit 31 million views as his guests were TikTok stars Charli D'Amelio, Dixie D'Amelio, Larrray, Noah Beck and Chase Hudson.


By the way, Chase "Lil Huddy" recently released a new song, "21st Century Vampire". However, some fans think it's plagiarizing Yungblud?



9) Reacting To Tik Toks About Me - 31,227,877 views


As a TikTok creator himself with an impressive 34.2 million followers, James is no stranger to being an inspiration behind many TikTok videos. (Good or bad).


Of course, this meant James had to react to a few of them.




8) Playing Among Us In Real Life 2! - 32,824,935 views


Who hasn't heard of Among Us? Well, unless you've been living under a rock, Among Us has recently resurfaced as a hit indie game.


And James had to go the extra mile and make a live version of it. Again, filled with his famous influencer friends. (Let's just ignore the backlash he got from it).


Strangely enough, though, part 1 only had 26 million views. Perhaps it's the power of the D'Amelio sisters who participated this time round?



Ah, remember that trend? How was the end result for James, though? Well, at the time, the 18-year-old James reckons he "absolutely killed" it.










6) Doing Charli D'Amelio's Makeup! 35,797,406 views


Out of all the celebs that James collaborated with, Charli racked in the second to most views. ...Can you guess who's the first?


Also, fun fact, this is the third time Charli is mentioned in this list of James' Top 10 Most Viewed videos.




5) BEST FRIENDS BUY EACH OTHER OUTFITS ft. Dolan Twins & Emma Chamberlain - 38,002,000 views


This was back then when the Sister Squad - consisting of the Dolan Twins, Emma Chamberlain and James himself - was in full swing. Anyone miss those times?


Unfortunately, James has gone on the record to say they aren't getting back together...









4) Doing Kylie Jenner's Halloween Makeup - 43,980,003 views


Remember when we asked you to guess who racked in the most views ahead of Charli D'Amelio?


It's Kylie Jenner that takes the crown.



3) Never Enough Cover ft. Cimorelli - 45,407,113 views


Fans will already know James Charles in dabbling into singing. Uploaded two years ago, his cover with Cimorelli racked in a whopping 45 million views.


...But did anyone hear James' recent cover "drivers license" by Olivia Rodrigo? Fans are obsessed over his new and improved singing skills...

2) I Bought A FAKE James Charles Palette - 49,751,069 views


Ugh. Everyone hates "fake" makeup palettes. It's just pure insult to the original creators who poured their blood, sweat and tears into their brand.


Even Jeffree Star publicly slammed Wish for selling fake JSC palettes.










1) No More Lies - 54,639,232 views


Finally, and probably not so unexpectedly, this video takes the top spot. This is the video where James Charles responded to the Tati Dramageddon which at the time, lost him a whopping 3 million subscribers, from 16.5 million to 13.9 million.


And where does James stand now?


25 million YouTuber subscribers and climbing.


Let's just say, he definitely made a comeback.
