His trick was simply to use a fake ID and go to Hollywood Parties wearing his best makeup. Celebrities from Hollywood then looked at him and invited him to do their makeup at their home. This is how he used to get makeup related jobs in his teenage years. As the time passed, he started having an interest in singing and creating music videos. He created a myspace account and a Youtube account and started uploading his music videos online.

As the time passed, Jeffree started feeling like his music was not making much money and his fame through music was only going downhill. After thinking a lot, he decided to launch his Youtube Channel for Makeup and invested the remaining amount of money for his very own makeup brand. His plan was just to make enough money to survive, but he had no idea he would be considered a beauty guru, and his makeup brand would become an empire of its own. Now, his makeup empire includes everything from a lip liner to an eyeshadow. From clothing to accessories and even makeup bags, there is nothing that Jeffree Star’s company doesn’t manufacture.

He purchased the house for a whopping $4 million, but now the house is worth at least $7 million. The house is nothing less than a fairy tale dream, with all the rooms built in a specific color. His bedroom though, is in pink color and has a vault that his bigger than his own bedroom. It won’t be wrong to say that his colorful personality is what makes him exclusive and superior than the rest.
