About Jeffree Star

Jeffrey Lynn Steininger Jr., known professionally as Jeffree Star, is an American YouTuber, entrepreneur, makeup artist, and former singer-songwriter. He is the founder and owner of Jeffree Star Cosmetics.

Early Life

Jeffree Lynn Steininger Jr.[6] was born in Los Angeles County, California, on November 15, 1985 and grew up in Orange County, California.[7] He says that he began experimenting with his mother's makeup as a child, and convinced her to let him wear it to school when he was in junior high.[8] Star attended Pacifica High School[9] in Garden Grove, California, where he graduated in 2002.[10] After high school, he legally changed his name to Jeffree Star[11] and relocated to Los Angeles where he supported himself with various makeup, modeling, and music jobs.[10][12] He recalls his early years, spending his weekends using a fake ID to attend Hollywood clubs, which is where celebrities would hire him as a personal makeup artist.[13]


Star used MySpace to further both his music as well as fashion design career.[8][14][15][16] Using MySpace like a blog, Star shared his personal life, while also providing social commentary on "self-image and confidence",[17] fame and beauty. Due to his use of several websites, Star already had a built-up fan base who signed up to join him on MySpace, giving his profile a large number of friends from its inception. His MySpace photoshoots would frequently gain over 50,000 comments.[8] He also gained fame as one of the most popular independent artists, with the daily rankings placing him in the top tier on MySpace.[18]

Music Career

Star's career as an electronica and pop vocalist began when he befriended Peaches' drummer Samantha Maloney, who encouraged him to make music.[8] During the summer of 2007, he was advertised as a part of the True Colors Tour 2007,[19] which traveled through 15 cities in the United States and Canada.[20] The tour, sponsored by the LGBT Logo channel, began on June 8, 2007, to coincide with Pride month.[20]
Star released his first and only studio album Beauty Killer in 2009, which peaked at number seven on the US Billboard Top Electronic Albums chart.[21] The album included songs such as "Lollipop Luxury" featuring Nicki Minaj. He embarked on several world tours to promote his music. In 2010, he signed to Konvict Muzik—whose founder Akon described Star as "the next Lady Gaga"—with plans to release a second album. However, it was never released and Star abruptly left the music industry in 2013 under unclear circumstances. He later described signing to Akon's record label as "the biggest mistake I've ever made."[22]
He appeared in the second version of Kesha's music video for her single "Take It Off" in 2010.[23] Star has worked with several other musical performers, including Blood on the Dance Floor, Deuce,[24] Millionaires,[25] and Larry Tee.[26]
