If you thought that being a beauty guru was solely a privilege of beautiful female Instagram and YouTube influencers you could not be farther from the truth. The YouTube Star (literally) Patrick Starr is a perfect example of how a talented freelance make-up artist can become an incredibly popular beauty guru.
Growing up Patrick however never dreamed about the career of a YouTuber or beauty guru. His passion for photography in high school made him realize how powerful Photoshop was and how easily it could change one’s appearance. After experimenting with pictures of his high school besties from contouring to highlighting their faces, he fell in love with the idea of make-up. That was the beginning of the Patrick Starr as we know him today.
🌟Note to younger self… Dear Patrick, You are so special. Please stop crying and being hard on yourself. Don't worry about your weight and what others think. Keep your friends close and your family closer. Your family loves you very much, they're only trying to protect you from the bullies and hate in this world. You will make a mark one day and you will be so very happy. One day you will live in LA, travel the world and make your dreams come true… dream big and work hard, I promise. Remember, life opens up when you do. I love you.❤️ Xoxo, PatrickStarrr #MACPATRICKSTARRR ps. Why you dressed like a pastor tho…
Patrick started his career in the beauty industry by working for MAC Cosmetics. Since he wanted to experiment with creating different makeup looks even outside of the workplace he decided to start filming short tutorials and upload them to YouTube. His big break came with the collab he filmed with a YouTuber Talia Joy who already had a strong base of followers. Afterward, Patrick became the new YouTube sensation basically overnight.
