Another day, another YouTube feud. Now that Tati Westbrook has uploaded a video called ‘BREAKING MY SILENCE…’ a follow up to the infamous ‘BYE SISTER’ video, we’re mentally preparing ourselves for another cycle of news involving these YouTubers. Since these YouTubers are never letting this tired drama die, we thought we’d check into exactly how much these YouTubers make and their overall net worth. The answers are surprisingly spare.
But, before we do, we spoke about all this drama on this episode of It’s Been A Big Day For…
Let’s dive in.
Let’s kick things off with the person that’s trending the most today, Tati Westbrook. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Tati Westbrook has a net worth of $6 Million USD (calculated in 2019). After launching her YouTube channel in 2010, Tati Westbrook has uploaded more than 1,000 videos, earned more than nine million subscribers and raked in over a billion views. Celebrity Net Worth reports that Tati makes between $1 and $2 million USD per year, off of YouTube alone and makes millions more from her other make-up ventures.
Next on our list is Shane Dawson, a YouTube veteran who has only recently entered the beauty-blogger world through Jeffree Star. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Shane Dawson has a net worth of $12 million USD (calculated in 2019). Shane Dawson has three YouTube channels, his most notable one (@shane) has over 22 million subscribers and has raked in 4 billion views. While Shane Dawson is most known for his documentary-style exposé videos on YouTube, his collaboration with Jeffree Star contributed the most to his net-worth. Having said that, due to recent controversies, the collaboration in question was dropped from Morphe’s official website.
Up next is the YouTuber who reinvented the word “sisters,” James Charles. According to Celebrity Net Worth, James Charles has a net worth of $22 Million USD (calculated in 2020). After launching his YouTube channel in 2015, James Charles has uploaded almost 300 videos, earned almost 20 million subscribers and raked in over two billion views. He’s estimated to be making $5 million USD per year for his YouTube videos with more money coming from his endorsements, (such as CoverGirl) make-up collaborations (such as his collab with Morphe) and his ‘Sisters’ merchandise.
Ending our list is the YouTuber who makes more money than all of the last three combined, Jeffree Star. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Jeffree Star has a net worth of $200 Million USD (calculated in 2020), which is absolutely insane. After launching his YouTube channel in 2006, Jeffree Star has uploaded almost 400 videos, earned almost 18 million subscribers and raked in over two billion views. While this YouTuber has had a career in music in the past, the majority of his money comes from his make-up company, Jeffree Star Cosmetics, which reportedly makes him an annual gross revenue is north of $100 million USD. Hot damn.
