It's no surprise Patrick Starrr has amassed almostВ five million Instagram followers and over four 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 byВ immaculate skin, a bright colour palette, and aВ healthy dose of shimmerВ (also, have you seen this incredibleВ Rihanna-inspired tutorial?).В
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 thanВ Kim Kardashian West, which might just take your contouring game to the next-level.
