Patrick Starr Interview

It's no surprise Patrick Starrr has amassed almost four million Instagram followers and over three million YouTube subscribers since he first broke into the makeup scene. The vlogger and artist is known for his out-of-this-world makeup tutorials, characterised by  immaculate skin, a bright colour palette, and a healthy dose of shimmer (also, have you seen this incredible Rihanna-inspired tutorial?). 

We were lucky enough to ask Starrr a few rapid-fire questions, and naturally quizzed him on his ride-or-die products, including the hard-working cleansing balm he credits for removing even the most heavy-duty makeup. He also shared a hot tip he picked up from none other than Kim Kardashian West, which might just take your contouring game to the next-level.
