With the help of Jeffree Star, Shane Dawson has the support to know how and what the stakes are to create a product that is worthy, original, and for everyone.
In the series, viewers see the real unstaged content between these two icons who give the audience the ability to know what goes on behind the scenes in makeup.
According to Shane Dawson, “I’m actually very very scared, the world of beauty is something that gives me anxiety because it’s very much like look orientated,” said Dawson. Dawson addressed this because he has always been self-conscious of his appearance.
As Shane Dawson sees the beauty community from his side, he happens to be completely in shock to know how many brands are in competition with each other. He sees how the products are packaged, retailed, and how much they are sold for.
In the most recent episode, The Secret of the Beauty World, Dawson mentions that he has been on YouTube for 12 years and he’s not making as much profit compared to the people who recently started their YouTube career. In this episode, Dawson experienced an emotional breakdown from hearing Jeffree Star saying he deserved it without him even realizing it.
As Dawson and Star sat down for a talk, Jeffree Star told him “You’re nice but naive and it’s time to change that because I used to be the same way,” said Star.
“I got taken advantage of without knowing.”
