How did Laura Lee Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on September 1, 1988, in Alabama, Laura Lee grew up with her two older siblings in Montgomery. After completing school, she worked briefly as a dermatologist’s medical assistant. Ultimately, it wasn’t until 2009, that she decided to join YouTube. From there, she began to post makeup tutorials, all of which proved to be popular among viewers.
Before long, her channel took off. In addition to tutorial videos, she now also posts content such as hauls and product reviews. As of June 2018, she has amassed more than 4.8 million subscribers with over 468 million combined views. To date, her most popular video to date, 15 Back to School Heatless Hairstyles has been viewed 14.5 million times.
Considering the size of her audience, it’s not surprising that the brunette earns a decent amount from her YouTube channel. According to NailBuzz, she receives an average of 550,000 views on a daily basis, which works out to be $1,000 in ad revenue per day. Assuming this is true, her annual salary would easily be in the six figures.
In addition to her primary channel, Lee also has vlogging channel, which she created in 2015. Though not as “successful” as her main account per se, it has gained over 410,000 subscribers in the past three years. Given that its contents are also monetized through Google Ads, it would provide her with yet another stream of revenue.
Offline, the beauty guru has a few other things going for her. For instance, she has collaborated with many cosmetic brands in the past such as Violet Voss, Benefit Cosmetics and Too Faced. Last year, she even worked with MAC Cosmetics to create her own lipstick shade.
As if that wasn’t impressive enough, it was announced last year that she is currently working on her own make-up brand called Laura Lee Los Angeles. In fact, she has already released two eyeshadow palettes called “Cat’s Pajamas” and “Nudie Patootie”, an eyeliner, as well as three liquid lipsticks.
