Jeffree Star is a well-known name in the beauty community that doesn’t need an introduction. Nevertheless, some people might describe him as an influencer on social media networks whose popularity only grows bigger over time. He is also an owner of Jeffree Star Cosmetics, a company that sold over $150 million worth of lipsticks and accessories last year alone. Having a large following on YouTube (over 16.4 million and nearly 2 billion views) gave him an additional push to success. Since Jeffree’s videos are mostly about reviewing different makeup brands, it’s clear that he knows a thing or two about cosmetics. Learn more about this controversial person, his personal life, family, boyfriend, feuds, net worth, surgeries, and more.
There are a few significant events that led him to this point in life. He was born on November 15th, 1985 in Orange County, California. His real name was Jeffrey Lynn Steininger. But ten years ago, he legally changed his name to Jeffrey Star. His childhood was troublesome, to say the least. Jeffree’s father Jeff took his own, life when he was only six years old. This took a toll on his entire life. His mother and grandparents raised him. His mother struggled to make ends meet, and she was drinking and dealt with drugs. In the meantime, Jeffree was in a dark place psychologically.
Recently, he admitted to his best friend and fellow YouTuber, Shane Dawson, in a video that he used to hurt himself with razors. The reason for this behavior was the inability to process what he was feeling or didn't feel anything at all. Because of that, he has thousands of scars all over his body. That is one of the reasons his whole body is covered with tattoos. Growing up, he was into wearing all black, punk style. He was wearing makeup since he was twelve years old. He finished Pacifica High School at age 17. After high school, he moved to LA. His uncle, Phil, and aunt Laurie played an important role in his life. After his uncle Phil past away, Jeffree presented his aunt as his mother to the public. He often disagreed with his mother and didn’t speak with her for ten years. That changed in 2018 when he decided to contact her. At that moment, he found out that she was homeless for almost four years. Since then, they are trying to build their relationship all over again, and bury old disagreements.
If you haven’t watched any Jeffree Star videos, and wonder what is so special about him, here are a few things he did to change the way he looks. The first thing noticeable is surely a full face of makeup. His personal preference is the absence of eyebrows, even though he sometimes has them lined as part of the makeup look. In his early career as a musician, he had a problem with his teeth. They were not aligned properly, and he had to have them reconstructed. This might be obvious, but he has fillers in his lips. Jeffree also admitted to having two surgeries. One is hair transplant surgery, and the second is health-related. Jeffree has a condition that makes his chewing difficult, so he needed his esophagus widened. This type of surgery he will have to undergo again in a few years.
An interesting fact is that almost his whole body is covered with tattoos. There is a possibility that Jeffree Star is addicted to tattoos. Many of his tattoos did his former friend and artist Kat Von D. On his chest, there are some famous faces, such as Kurt Cobain, Audrey Hepburn, and Elvis Presley. Some of the words he tattooed are redrum, fame, cats meow, honey, delicious, etc. Jeffree decided to overcome his fears by doing tattoos on his body. Since he is allergic to bees, he has a bumblebee tattooed on his neck. His second major fear is the fear of sharks, so he has a shark tattoo on his stomach. He also has a painting of Mona Lisa tattooed because it looks like she has no eyebrows. Kat Von D is the artist behind these tattoos. His friend Rayan did the tattoo of Patrick Bateman. Jeffree Star is a fan of Batman, so it is not surprising that he had Michelle Pfeiffer as a cat woman tattooed on his arm. And he has many, many more…
Jeffree Star first became famous on MySpace. With millions of followers, he called himself The King of MySpace. At that time, he used harsh language, was very angry, depressed. He lashed out on anybody who had an opinion about his looks, or the way of life. It’s a little known fact that Jeffree Star had a music career before becoming a success on YouTube. For nine years, he was with Popsicle Records as his label. Some of his songs are Beauty Killer, Prom night, Blush, I'm In Love, etc. A potential breakthrough for his career was signing a contract with Akon. But after the scandal that followed Akon, Jeffree’s career sunk too. Maybe that was for the best because now Jeffree is insanely rich, and can revisit his musical career any time he wants.
Jeffree Star is often a center of feuds and scandals. He had a very public dispute with Kat Von D, with whom he had been a friend since 2007. She even did a major part of his tattoos. Even though they didn’t hang out that much lately, Jeffree considered her a close friend. As Jeffree was trying to launch his first eyeshadow palette, Kat publicly accused him of stealing ideas from Too Faced makeup brand and not paying the man who designs his logo for the product. Jeffree explained in a video what happened with massages from Kat. After this incident, it was clear that he had to end his friendship with Kat.
The latest feud he had was with James Charles. Jeffree tweeted that James is a danger to society and that he was banned from their house by Nathan, Jeffree's boyfriend. The reason was supposedly James Charles’s predatory behavior toward Nathan's younger brother Zach and few other straight guys. Epilog of this feud was, however, a positive one. James Charles managed to clear his name and actions, and he got an appropriate apology from Jeffree Star.
One of the other scandals that followed Jeffree Star was him saying racists comments to other people. This was back in his MySpace time. Since then, he has changed his public image and is in a much happier place now. He justified this incident by saying that he had to defend himself because of the way he looks. Nevertheless, later on, he made an apology video that most of the affected people appreciated. Let's hope he will learn from his mistakes and move on from unnecessary scandals.
Jeffree Star often collaborates on YouTube with makeup artists Nicole Faulkner aka @lipsticknick, and Mitchell aka @mmmmitchell. He also collaborated on YouTube with Laura Lee, Manny MUA, Tati Westbrook, Tana Mongeau, The Dolan Twins, and others. He met Shane Dawson aka @shane a year ago, when he did a series about him on YouTube. Since then, they are close friends. Jeffree even helped Shane to design his on eyeshadow palette trough his company that is coming out soon called Conspiracy Collection. His former friend James Charles, and many others would agree that Jeffree goes fast trough friendships. The reason might be his trust issues because people tend to take advantage of his fame and money.
Jeffree met his current boyfriend Nathan Schwandt on Instagram, in late 2014. After a few months of messaging, they met and had an instant connection. They had a long-distance relationship for some time because Nathan lived with his parents in Wyoming, Michigan. Since March 2015, they are officially together. Nathan likes to skateboard and is a weed user since he turned 14. An interesting fact is that he only dated girls before Jeffree Star. They currently live in their house in Calabasas, California. They are subject to constant discussion because people try to figure out their relationship. They seem very happy together, and loyal to each other, despite some fun they have on their travels. They trust each other enough that they are enjoying in threesomes occasionally. Even though they met before Jeffree’s major success, some people try to hint that Nathan has shady reasons for a relationship with him. Before he met Nathan, Jeffree Star has been single for seven years. He had random hookups, and even at one point was an escort. In the near future, Jeffree and Nathan don’t plan on getting married or having kids. They, however, have six dogs named: Delicious, Drama, Daddy, Diva, Diamond, and DaVinci. Sadly, four months ago Diamond past away, and a month ago they lost Daddy too.
