Thomas Halbert

Finalist in Beauty

About Thomas Halbert

Thomas Halbert says he is “just another FREAKIN beauty guru,” but his fans know differently—Thomas has a way of making his cheekbones look higher than humanly possible, and his lips poutier than a puppy dog’s brows. The North Carolina native had his smoky eyes set on California in 2017, moving to LA in March. He still posts regular makeup tutorials, product reviews, and beauty vlogs for his 170K+ YouTube subscribers, taking to Instagram to show off selfies of his finalized looks for 370K+ additional followers. Thomas has only been working with makeup for the last four years, but he has become a master. At just 21 years old, the sky’s the limit for the social media darling, and his fans can’t wait to see his sultry looks to come.
