He founded his eponymous cosmetics company in 2014 using his entire life savings earned from his music and makeup career up to that point.

His first release was a collection of velour liquid lipsticks. All 30,000 units sold out within minutes of launch. He followed up with a line of lip scrubs, highlighter palettes and eye-shadow pallets. He then released a line of accessories and clothing including makeup bags and mirrors.
