At 33 years old, Jeffree Star is a self-made millionaire who sits on an empire of makeup tutorials and self-designed palettes. Jeffree’s riches are no secret, as he flaunts them without hesitation in his videos, which have earned him over 11M subscribers. (And by the looks of it just as many dollars).
Jeffree took to Twitter to celebrate saying “self made 100%”. They yhen recorded an emotional and inspiring Snapchat story.
Jeffree Star has been through a lot. Starting out in the music industry, Jeffree had success on Myspace but didn’t break through financially. Struggling financially and battling depression, Jeffree had an idea for a makeup brand.
He designed 3 liquid lips, but not everyone believed in what he was doing. He says a lot of things happened behind the scenes when he first started and he almost gave up 3 or 4 times
But he kept going. In an intimate docuseries interview with Shane Dawson, Jeffree reveals his empire behind the scenes and tells Shane that he has millions in the bank.
After all this hard work, it’s not wonder Jeffree is so proud to be on that Forbes list! Jeffree came in at #5 behind Dan TDM, Dude Perfect, Jake Paul, and Ryan ToysReview… which does technically make Jeffree the #1 Beauty Vlogger on YouTube. Congratulations Jeffree Star!
