GAY TIMES OCTOBER 2018 • PATRICK STARRR

With a social media following growing larger by the second, Patrick Starrr has redefined beauty standards on a global scale. Starting as makeup tutorialist, Patrick has since collaborated with Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Kris Jenner, Tyra Banks and Katy Perry to name a few, and even brought out his own line of MAC Cosmetics. What started as a morning makeup routine video has rapidly evolved into a growing business model that truly represents the new era of the American dream. Leading the revolution of men in makeup, we spoke with the trailblazer on life behind the lens, dealing with hate online and remaining true to himself underneath the makeup.

“I don’t wake up with lashes and contour, looking plastic, y’know? I’m a man at the end of the day, and I want love and I want a husband.”
