Not long after, Star launched his beauty website for posting reviews about the makeup brands he tried.

At that time, Star shifted his attention and started focusing on making music videos that highlight not only his unique makeup but also his gorgeous costumes and colorful wigs. That’s when he switched from MySpace to launch his Youtube channel.
Since then, Star’s fanbase grew exponentially as millions of netizens start noticing him and his talent. Star began to monetize his video content with ads and sponsors from famous brands until he became a successful Youtuber.
The Makeup Empire
As Star’s earnings began to grow, he decided to invest his money into producing a lipstick brand under a new company named after him.
He used his Youtube platform to promote his products and even tapped sought his friend Kat Von D‘s help to endorse his brand.
Fortunately, his products clicked to his fans, enabling him to sell an astounding 30,000 units on launch day, selling out the entire stock within a few minutes. Since then, Star’s working relentlessly to expand his cosmetic empire which is now worth millions of dollars.
