His online fame has helped him generate a lot of advertising revenue, the main source of which is his YouTube channel. He has also received sponsorship and endorsement from a few companies.
Early life and career beginnings
Thomas lived relatively out of the limelight for most of his childhood, but he became fascinated with makeup. He experimented with it a lot during these years, although he never felt confident about wearing makeup in public until about 2014. He developed his skills mostly using accessible tutorials like YouTube videos, started to gain confidence and started doing makeup in public.
Around the same time, he started to establish himself on social media platforms such as Instagram and YouTube on which many makeup gurus have found success, especially ouTube, even launching them into the careers of several people and making them stars of the industry. He wanted to achieve the same feat and started posting regularly on the site, and on his own channel grew steadily and posted more tutorials and tips. He started an advocacy channel for the minorities and tended to keep people together, especially those who were victims of bullying.
Jeffrey Star was one of the first male personalities to become a beauty and makeup guru on YouTube, although this was not the case initially. He initially wanted to start a music career and started promoting his music through the website MySpace. This led him to a record deal and he soon launched his debut studio album called “Beauty Killer”, but that is his only album to date. The album featured performances by Nicki Minaj, and during this peak of his music career, he was labeled as the next Lady Gaga. However, after numerous legal problems with his management Akon, he abruptly decided to leave this career.
In 2014 he started a channel on YouTube and went in a completely different direction. He started Jeffree Star Cosmetics company and started promoting his products through his channel. He quickly became a star on the platform as he was one of the first male personalities to deal with makeup. “Forbes” later reported that he made millions from YouTube alone, not even counting his direct business earnings. In 2018, he was listed as the fifth highest earning YouTube personality. Aside from his makeup skills, Jeffree is known for feuding with other YouTubers and celebrities, expressing his opinion of them.
Thomas’ feud with Jeffree Star
Thomas has been at odds with Jeffree for a long time, though the fundamental reason has never been admitted. Many of his followers noticed that he disliked Jeffree Cosmetics products during a video where he stated that he did not use products from many companies. He even went on air stating that he would never use Jeffree Stars products.
Then, oddly enough, in the next video, he started using Jeffree Star’s name by posting a video about him, following one of Star’s makeup videos.
This series of videos about Star would prove to be his most popular, not because of his makeup skill, but rather the story behind. In these videos, he often makes unnecessary comments about Jeffree’s physical appearance and also mocks his makeup. That, along with insults toward his products, made it seem like he hated the guru. It didn’t take long for other people to notice that he seemed callous, insincere, and generally a negative person. Many of his critics began attacking him for being a bully while supposedly advocating for an end to bullying.

The feud continues
After issues of racism and derogatory comments about minorities, Jeffree Star was very excited online. These issues even led to him ending all collaborations with several YouTube makeup artists he had worked with for a long time. Halbert took advantage of this period to talk about issues such as racism and sexism. While he didn’t directly name Star, many of his statements suggested he was talking about the other YouTuber.
As is typical for Star, he didn’t let this slide, as he began posting online via Twitter about the truth behind the video. It turns out that just a few days earlier, Halbert approached Star to supposedly fix things between them.
They talked it out and forgave each other, even made clarifications, explained each other’s sides. Looking back on it, it seemed odd that Halbert would have been looking for more information on the racism issue. Nevertheless, it was made public and now the information was being used against him. Star then posted text conversations between him and Halbert, with the other supposedly apologizing for the video he released. He later released a follow-up video again apologizing for his actions, though many people felt it was disingenuous, and he didn’t even address Jeffree directly.
It is known that Thomas in a relation with a man named Kevin. The two have posted photos together, wearing makeup or displaying a public display of affection. He doesn’t talk openly about his family and the most people know is that he has a brother. He has been labeled bizarre by many people and often posts condescending tweets before deleting them an hour later. He has also been accused of running bogus giveaways and contests to gain additional subscribers – he failed to respond properly after the issue was spotted by one of the participants, and he tried to avoid the issue altogether.
