Patrick was born and raised in Orlando, Florida. His parents are immigrants from the Phillippines and he has two younger brothers, making him the oldest of three. Growing up, Patrick didn't have cable or internet and almost exclusively watched local channels. Programs such as America's Next Top Model, Miss Universe, and The Swan would be his favorites and inspire him later in life. Patrick would study classical piano in his youth and would teach piano lessons as well as be his friends’ accompanist for the choir, for musicals, for singing competitions. In high school, he became interested in photography and edited pictures using photoshop, which led him to become a makeup artist.
Career and Success
Upon graduating high school, Patrick studied nursing for undergrad, worked at Panera Bread, did hair and makeup, and worked at MAC Cosmetics. In February 2013, Patrick became depressed for not being assigned any hours of work from MAC. As a response, he decided to start a YouTube Channel in order to work on his technique. Patrick was later introduced to another Orlando makeup Youtuber, Talia Joy, who had 1 million subscribers at the time. When Joy passed away from cancer, one of the last videos on her activity feed was Patrick's eyeliner and red lip video.
Patrick has become a successful businessman in his own right. He won the award for Beauty at the 2017 Streamy Awards. Patrick has done makeup videos with Kim Kardashian West, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Maddie Ziegler and more. As of April 2018, Patrick had over 4.1 followers on Instagram, 3.6 million subscribers on YouTube, 512k followers on Twitter, and 461k likes on Facebook.
