Jeffree Star’s Net Worth: Just In Case You Were Wondering How Rich He Is

If you’ve ever found yourself scrolling through Youtube for videos to mindlessly watch, you may have come across some of Jeffree Star’s videos. Jeffree Star is an American internet celebrity, makeup artist, and is also a beauty vlogger on the popular American video sharing website YouTube. Star is also the founder and owner of Jeffree Star Cosmetics. He has come a long way from his MySpace days, so how is he doing in terms of his net worth?

Who is Jeffree Star?

Born on the 15th of November, Jeffree Star was born to Jeffrey L. Steininger and Marra Shubyann Lindstrom Steininger in Orange County, California. However when Jeffree was just six years old, his father committed suicide, prompting his mother to raise him on her own.

His interest in makeup started when he began playing around with his mother’s makeup at a young age. He then began to wear it outside their home, even convincing his mother to let him wear makeup to school when he was in junior high. After graduation, he moved to Los Angeles where he supported himself with various gigs in makeup, modelling, and music.

Rise to Fame

Star’s rise to celebrity status began with MySpace, which he used to jumpstart his music career as well as blog about his personal life. He then went on to release a studio album entitled Beauty Killer in 2009, but left the music industry for unclear reasons in 2013.

Using his life savings, Star started his makeup label, Jeffree Star Cosmetics in 2014 with a collection of velour liquid lipsticks. His liquid lipsticks quickly became a favorite among beauty enthusiasts and Jeffree Star followed up with highlighter palettes, eyeshadow palettes, and even clothing and accessories.

Using YouTube as a platform to promote his cosmetics products, Jeffree Star and his products have now become a household name. He currently has around 16 million subscribers, making him one of the most subscribed YouTubers in the world and one of the highest paid YouTubers in the world.

Feuds, Drama, and Controversies

At the height of his fame, Star has been involved in a few controversies with other YouTubers in the beauty community. One of his most famous feuds has been with his long-time friend Kat Von D, who he had a falling out with. Star was also involved in a highly publicized falling out with beauty YouTubers MannyMUA, Gabriel Zamora, and Laura Lee.

But perhaps one of the more prominent drama involving Star is the theft of his stock and shipping facilities was broken into. The thieves made away with numerous makeup stocks, including a then unreleased shade of Jeffree Star concealers. Jeffree Star has since been working with the authorities and with commercial litigation lawyers such as McQuarrie to arrest those responsible for the theft and sue them for damages.

Jeffree Star’s Youtube videos showcase him with a lot of luxury items such as Hermès Birkin handbags and custom supercars, all of which he owns in multiples. This may all be possible due to his highly diversified income streams.
