Jeffree Star Biography and Facts
Jeffree Lynn Steininger was the birth name of the cosmetics guru, Jeffree Star. He was born on November 15, 1985, in Orange County, California, United States of America, and attended Pacifica High School in Garden Grove, California.
His father died when he was just 6 years old and left the responsibility for his upbringing to his mother. Since Jeffree’s mother was a model, she always took orders and left him alone, which led to his discovery of make-up at the age of 13. He had enough time to experiment with his mother’s make-up and convinced her to let him wear make-up in school when he was in junior high.
His interest in cosmetics and make-up was awakened by observing several cosmetic ads and models in his mother’s fashion magazines. He was laughed at and ridiculed for his more feminine clothes. But you know what? Jeffree found what he loved to do and would continue to do for a long time to come, and as such, other people’s opinions meant nothing to him.
He took music lessons at school and grew better with both instruments and words. After graduating, he moved to Los Angeles and started his own business with jobs in make-up and music. His friend Samantha Maloney, Peaches’ drummer, encouraged him to make music. He did, and with that began his career as an electronica and pop singer.
He started his music career on MySpace with over 25 million posts on his self-published music. This brought him fame as one of the most popular artists without a record deal. Jeffree was promoted as a member of the 2007 True Colors Tour, which toured 15 cities in the United States and Canada. The tour, which began on June 8th, was sponsored by the LGBT Logo Channel.
Following his two EPs [Plastic Surgery Slumber Party (2007) and Cupcake’s Taste Like Violence (2008)], Jeffree released his debut album Beauty Killer on Popsicle Records in 2009, featuring Young Money and Nicki Minaj. In 2010 he appeared in the second version of Kesha’s music video Take It Off. He has collaborated with other music performers such as Blood on the Dance Floor, Deuce, Millionaires, and Larry Tee.
Makeup and Modeling
As an adolescent, he already had an eye for fame. While other children were studying and doing homework, he was in villas and music videos, putting on make-up and earning lots of money. He told how on weekends he would go to Hollywood clubs in mini dresses and skyscraper heels, where he met celebrities who appreciated his makeup skills.
Later, he received commissions for make-up work in the homes of these celebrities. In one of the clubs in Los Angeles in 2006, he met Kelly Osbourne who asked him to do her make-up for the BRIT Awards. This was a necessary boost for his career as it announced him and brought him many more commissions. Jeffree also worked as a freelance make-up artist in a MAC Cosmetics business.
Makeup Line Launch – 2014
If you can’t stop thinking about make-up, play with some. That’s exactly what he did. Ever since he discovered his first lipstick, he has dreamed of creating and owning his very own brand. His make-up line, Jeffree Star Cosmetics, was created in 2014 to fulfill that dream. His products do exactly what they say, last, and are free from cruelty.
Collections in the make-up line include the Beauty Killer eye shadow range, Skin Frost, liquid velour lipsticks, and velour lip scrub.

The make-up expert, who is full of self-confidence, says he doesn’t look up to anyone in particular and is honest about the changes he has gone through and even shares his adventures online.
