Jeffree Star was recently honored in YouTube's infamous "Rewind" video recap of the year. He was highlighted for being one of the most famous and successful makeup entrepreneurs that seem to have stormed the video platform in recent years. But he's not just a YouTube video star. He is a certified makeup mega-tycoon. His company Jeffree Star Cosmetics generates north of $100 million per year. Jeffree Star's net worth is $200 million today, though that could skyrocket in the wake of rival tycoon Kylie Jenner's $1.2 billion slam dunk deal.
Jeffree made headlines in 2019 thanks to his rivalry with fellow makeup YouTuber James Charles. He has also been featured in several extremely popular Shane Dawson videos. Shane and Jeffree not only film videos together, they also teamed up or a makeup line co-production which sold out instantly.
Today Jeffree has investments in marijuana, real estate and merchandising. He also, wisely, owns the shipping and fulfillment center used by Jeffree Star Cosmetics and other drop shipment companies.
Between January 1st and December 1st 2018, Jeffree conservatively earned $18 million from his various business ventures. That was enough to make him the 5th highest-paid YouTube Star on the planet.
Up until very recently, Jeffree and his boyfriend Nathan Schwandt lived in a large mansion in Calabasas, California which Jeffree purchased in 2016 for $3.62 million. I say "up until recently" because news is just breaking that Jeffree has moved on up in the world with an absolutely other-worldly estate acquisition.
Jeffree just plunked down $4.6 million on an enormous mansion in Hidden Hills, California. Did I say "$4.6 million"? Whoops, I forgot a digit. He spent $14.6 million.
Situated on just under 3-acres, Jeffree's property features 25,000 square-feet of living space, with 8 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms. Check this beast out. It's so incredible, I'm sharing two video tours:
How insane is that property?
And just so you're aware – Hidden Hills is where stars like Drake, Kris Jenner, John Stamos and The Weeknd live. Hidden Hills is essentially an entirely gated community of roughly 700 homes. You can't get more private and exclusive than this anywhere in the world.
Congrats to Jeffree on the new digs! If you're reading this, I wouldn't turn down a pool party invite some day…
