An aspiring makeup artist should be expected to have high standards for senior portraits.

With hundreds of thousands of followers on Instagram and Twitter, Bethlehem Central High School senior James Charles Dickinson told BuzzFeed News he requested a second set in order to get it right.

Based on the response on social media, consider it a success. Between his Instagram and Twitter posts, his re-shoot received more than 150,000 likes and retweets.

Dickinson, who features his work under the name “James Charles,” is no stranger to his work going viral. A Times Union story from May detailed his ascent, which exploded after a video of himself applying makeup during the Super Bowl drew overwhelming attention.
