In case you haven't seen him on Little Big Shots, it's time you became acquainted with Welsh singer Reuben De Maid. The 12-year-old performer recently stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to show off his immense talents, but it was then that Ellen revealed to the audience that he's not just musically skilled!
"There's something else that you love as much as singing, what is that?" she asked. "Makeup," he responded. Audience members and show viewers could see that the young singer was wearing a glamorous look that included bronzed skin, a smoky eye, and defined brows. Reuben shared that ever since he was 8, he has spent hours watching beauty tutorials on YouTube.
Unfortunately, Reuben has been teased for wearing makeup to school. "I used to get bullied a lot," he said. "In my drama group I got hit, punched, and kicked." He said that after two months of trying to brush off the snide remarks, he stood up to his bullies and eventually transferred schools. He still embraces his passion for cosmetics and even told Ellen that he'd like to have his own makeup brand someday.
It was then that the talk show host shared a surprise: a gift of Reuben's very own miniature YouTube studio. It featured a backdrop of the Kardashians (who serve as a major source of inspiration for him), a ring light for crafting well-lit tutorials, plenty of makeup, and a MacBook.
