” I’ve been a makeup artist since I was 12 and it was always a dream of mine back them to have my line. I would spend hours every night recreating looks I saw in my mother’s Cosmo magazines and it was my escape. When you come from a poor background and a family full of alcoholics, you don’t fully understand what that means when you’re a little kid. I found art and makeup, it changed my life.”— Jeffree Star
My whole life is a contradiction on purpose – to make you think. I think people have forgotten how to have their own opinions. They’re always waiting for someone to tell them what to do and what to wear – it’s so boring.— Jeffree Star
” In the beginning, I was just a makeup artist and I never really pictured myself doing anything else. But now that I have so many doors open, I kind of want to be that indie rock Paris Hilton – but with actual intelligence – she’s just stupid”— Jeffree Star
“I like to say I have Internet Immorality. From the beginning of the “internet famous” era until now, I’ve evolved and went with the flow of change, always changing my makeup looks, fashion, and vision. My brand has grown so fast from social media and I don’t know how life would be without logging onto MySpace for the first time 10 years ago! “— Jeffree Star
