Born Patrick Simondac, he didn’t expect all of this to happen but he shared in an interview with People that this all started when he was still a high school photographer and realized he could edit the looks using Photoshop.
“It was then that I realized I could Photoshop makeup on to the computer to eliminate blemishes, add blush, contour and shape brows. And that was basically the spark for my interest for makeup.”
Here are some of the things you should know about him:
- His parents are immigrants

🌟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...
