You can pretty much see Jeffree Star's net worth from space.
Jeffree Star is known for three things: makeup, money and controversy. After public fights Kylie Cosmetics, NikkiTutorials, Kat Von D and Laura Lee, as well as a number of racist comments, it’s unsurprising that there is a huge split in opinion about the makeup behemoth.
no shade but why are people so quick to forgive jeffree star for all the misogynistic, racist, transphobic things he's said? y'all act like he said it years ago when he was literally saying shit in 2016/2017. it's not like he said those things a few times and apologized, he's pic.twitter.com/aSAU7gklNc— cait loves olivia ◟̽◞̽ (@softwheelrs) August 2, 2018

In “The Secret World Of Jeffree Star,” the first in a five-part documentary into Jeffree’s life, interviewer Shane Dawson sets out to learn more about how Jeffree makes his money, while also showing us an "unfiltered" version of the star that we don't get to see on his YouTube channel. But, while those who eagerly tuned in may have hoped that Jeffree's controversial past would be discussed, part one was dedicated to one thing, and one thing only – how rich Jeffree Star is.
After Jeffree opens the door to his outrageously large estate, we are shown a room that has remained more or less private until now. Inside, there is a line of at least 10 pinball machines, which are “the newest ones [he and Nate] are obsessed with playing.” They form part of a larger collection of about 100 machines, the rest of which are stored in a warehouse.
The adventure continues into the kitchen, where Shane and Jeffree enjoy ice-cream eaten with gold-plated cutlery (two spoons alone are worth $220). Sugary snacks, we learn, are Jeffree's addiction - in fact, one of the first expensive things he purchased was a new set of zirconium crystal teeth, after sugar and bad genetics left him unhappy with his natural gnashers. It’s at this point we’re told that Jeffree owns an actual mountain next to his estate.
Jeffree’s expensive tastes extend to clothes and accessories too; he has a walk-in wardrobe where “Gucci goes to die,” a.k.a to never see the light of day again after being worn once. Countless pairs of shoes line the walls. But the Gucci room is nothing compared to what comes next.
Finally, we reach the most interesting (and most expensive) place in Jeffree’s house - his personal closet. Locked behind a pin-coded door, the room contains around “$6-7 million” in clothes, shoes, jewellery and handbags - one handbag is limited edition and only owned by him, Beyoncé and Rihanna, while another is a Himalayan Birkin bag worth $125,000.
So where does this money come from? While standing in the closet, Jeffree explains how he owns more than his own makeup company and a YouTube channel. He talked about owning roughly 10 other businesses, including housing development and marijuana; a “businessman at heart” is how he describes himself.
He then goes into further detail about his makeup company, explaining how he owns a 30,000 square foot warehouse (with other warehouses connected to it) where 100 employees ship his makeup all across the world to his consumers.
With Jeffree Star's net worth at an impressive $5,000,000 in 2018, it's no wonder the beauty wiz is living la vida loaded. But can Shane peel back the layers to discover what goes on underneath the gold-plated surface? We’ll have to tune into part two to find out.
