Patrick Starrr, born on 11 November 1989, rose to YouTube stardom by doing makeup videos and vlogs and then posting them on the popular streaming channel. He was one of the first male makeup artists to post makeup vlogs on YouTube, and he has created an empire of followers over the last few years. Today, Starrr is an internet sensation, having grown in the number of followers he has on various social media platforms. His love of makeup and admirable spirit is inspirational and we are sure there are many more amazing things to come for this talented young star.
Patrick Starrr was born on November 11, 1989, in Florida to parents Arnulfo and Lenee Somdac, being the oldest of three boys. He had a very close relationship with his family and stated that he was a very calm child, enjoying things like sports, piano, and photography. His love of photography really came out as he got older, and in high school he would volunteer to take headshots for his friends and drama students, both taking the actual photos and then editing them after. After high school, Starrr became more involved with his photography while also working at MAC Cosmetics on the side, which is where he developed his love for all things makeup.
He started his YouTube channel in 2013 when he was not given any shifts for his job at MAC and he was disappointed that he would not be putting any makeup on himself. He started out with basic videos and tutorials, which would eventually grow into the empire he is known for today. While his videos, in the beginning, were a bit grainy and did not look as professional as he would have liked, he perfected his skills both when it came to videography and to makeup. One of the biggest developments in Starrr’s career was when he met fellow YouTuber Talia Joy, who has sadly passed away, and appeared on her YouTube channel. This appearance spiked his popularity, and he received thousands of followers from this. In 2017, He received a Streamy Award for his accomplishments, a huge honor considering that he had only been present on YouTube for four years prior to receiving this award.
Starrr continued to develop his skills both in front of and behind the camera, gaining millions of followers on many social media platforms as he went. In 2020, he diversified his brand and created his own beauty line called One/Size, and also started a podcast called “Say Yas to the Guest.” He continues to develop himself and his skills to this day and we cannot wait to see what is in store for him next.
