Filipino-American makeup artist Patrick Starr is an undeniable force not just in the video-sharing platform Youtube, but also in all of makeup. With his signature turban, glammed up face, superb makeup skills, and a “makeup is a one-size-fits-all” philosophy, millions of his followers across all social media platforms go crazy for all the looks that he create.
His recent holiday collaboration with MAC Cosmetics also cemented his beauty royalty status. Patrick is the first Filipino to make a global collection with MAC, where he was once a regular employee. His glitzy and glamorous line included gorgeous eyeshadow quads, a setting powder, and lip products.
In honor of his upcoming visit in the Philippines on February 24 for a beauty event with MAC Cosmetics, let’s take a look at some of his most epic makeup videos:
1. Kim Kardashian-West Makeup Tutorial
Patrick Starr built his own empire from doing makeup on Youtube while reality star Kim Kardashian-West basically started the whole contour-and-highlight trend. In this makeup tutorial, the two went for a natural, “no-makeup” makeup look, focusing on healthy-looking skin, groomed brows and enhancing the facial features with Kim’s own contour sticks.
2. Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach Makeup Tutorial
All it took was an Instagram direct message for Patrick’s makeup tutorial with 2015 Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach to happen. The two went for a “bongga,” red lip look, perfect for when the beauty queen sits as a panel judge for the same competition she won two years ago. In this fun video, Pia shared some beauty pageant hacks, such as using hairspray for toned-looking butt, legs, and tummy. Patrick also learned some trendy gay lingo from the queen herself.
3. Jessie J Makeup Tutorial
While we didn’t know that Patrick can play the piano well, we were sure that having British pop superstar Jessie J on his channel would be hella epic. In this tutorial, Patrick showed how to achieve a vampy makeup look that you can wear to a fun karaoke night while belting all of Jessie J’s hits. After all, it’s not about the money, money, money. It’s about making the world love makeup.
4. Bretman Rock Makeup Tutorial
Patrick’s makeup tutorial with Bretman Rock screams nothing but Filipino pride. With funny antics and sheer love for makeup adventure, the two showed how to rock a gold cut-crease and a dramatic, winged eye look. We had a lot of laughs seeing Bretman’s ticklish neck and crazy facial expressions. We’ll definitely try wearing this “snatched” look on a girls’ night out.
5. Katy Perry Makeup Tutorial
Katy Perry is known for her outrageous stage looks but for this makeup tutorial, Patrick went for a fresh, dewy makeup look that can be worn on normal days. Except for the smoky eye that has become Katy’s signature look, everything else in the tutorial looked like something we could do for ourselves. “It’s amazing what makeup can do. It can bring out all the good stuff that’s already inside you,” Katy said.
