Attending Jeffree Star’s “Can’t Relate” Tour in London has to go down as one of the highlights of Autumn 2018!
Hosted by 2017 Love Island contestant Montana Brown at Troxy an Art Deco Grade II-listed venue at
Limehouse in London’s East End, the event was a complete sell-out. A Jeffree Star Tour was never going to disappoint but I had underestimated quite how charismatic he is in person and how he can hold the stage.
As far as Makeup Artists go, they don’t come more famous, flamboyant or controversial than the incredible, but outspoken Jeffree Star. With the Jeffree Star, YouTube Channel amassing an impressive 10 million captivated subscribers and over a billion views, the audacious internet celebrity is mesmerising to watch, in addition to being an incredible talent.
What was really interesting was the opportunity to gain more of an insight in to the man behind the celebrity, largely from an unrehearsed “Q & A” with the live audience. Initially a MAC Makeup Artist, before deciding that retail really wasn’t for him, Star shared that British singer-songwriter Kelly Osborne was his first celebrity client and when pressed, Paris Hilton as his favourite. It was a such a relaxed atmosphere that there was even an amusing on-stage FaceTime to his partner, Nate back in the States.

Jeffrey has championed his own cruelty-free makeup range, now in its fourth year. Bold and colourful, the range has been a huge success and is a metamorphosis of its extravagant creator. Available in the UK exclusively via Beauty Bay, one of my own makeup kit staples is Jeffree’s highly coveted and constantly sold out Thirsty Palette from his 2018 Summer Collection. Perfect for Festivals or whenever a touch of creativity or colour is called for with its mix of vibrant metallics and bright shades.
Jeffrey also hinted at some major new collaborations in 2019 as well as confirming the addition of a new Concealer range launching in the Spring, followed by a complete Foundation range later in the year.
