Jeffree Star is back in the news

Cosmetics Provocateur Jeffree Star Endorses Another Controversial Makeup Technique, Apologizes For Past Racism

If there’s anyone who knows how to keep his name in the news, it’s cosmetics provocateur Jeffree Star. One of the original “MySpace stars,” who got his start as a musician (of sorts), Star has now gone on to fame and infamy as an independent cosmetics creator and makeup artist who knows how to push all the right — and wrong — buttons.

According to Cosmopolitan Magazine, Jeffree Star — who sat down to talk with the outlet — endorses a very controversial makeup technique. Why does he endorse it? Because he does it himself.

“I contour my shaft a lot. When it’s hard, so that when it goes back down it just looks really like [makes elephant noise].”

The “shaft” Star is referring to is, of course, his penis. The process garnered some questions from the publication, who admitted that while many people wanted a contoured face, they wondered if it was really necessary to have a contoured “love sword.” They also asked if Jeffree Star preferred to use liquid or powdered concealer, and they also wondered how long the contouring lasted.

Jeffree brought up the technique — and how he’s a fan of it — when he was doing a makeup tutorial with Shane Dawson, a YouTube star. You can check out their tutorial below. (Of course, it goes without saying that it’s NSFW)

Of course, since Jeffree Star likes to push buttons, he didn’t just make the news for that, uh, interesting bit of advice. According to Revelist, Jeffree Star recently promised to “quit the Internet” after dragging indie makeup company Too Faced on social media and not liking the subsequent fallout.

(We’re really not sure what he was expecting, all things considered, but hey!)

This isn’t the first time he’s dragged Too Faced for filth. He went at the indie makeup company in the past, when they first released their “unicorn makeup.” Star felt that this makeup was a direct threat to his lipsticks, one of which was named “Unicorn Blood.” (Allegedly, the name “Unicorn Blood” came from another Internet war with another makeup company, Lime Crime Cosmetics. While this theory was never proven, it certainly made a lot of sense to many in the indie makeup community.)

“After dragging Blandino for claiming the concept of unicorn makeup as his own, he threatened to reveal contract details between the brand and former YouTube friend NikkieTutorials. But this time, a LOT of people actually agreed with him.”

That’s not the only thing Jeffree Star has come under fire for in the past. According to People Magazine, one of the biggest things that Jeffree has had to apologize for is his racist comments, and much to his credit, he recently did.

“Those videos were 12 years ago and I look at them and it just makes me sick to my stomach because I don’t know who that person was. In these videos I say some really disgusting, vile, nasty and embarrassing things. The past can never be erased. It is always going to be there. The person who said those horrible, vile things, that person was depressed, that person was just angry at the world, that person felt like they were not accepted, that person was seeking attention. But does that make it okay? Absolutely not.”

We’re very proud of Jeffree Star for taking ownership of his past mistakes and apologizing for them.
