Makeup Artist Patrick Ta

Patrick Ta was fresh off a failed venture to open a tanning salon in Arizona when he found his way to Los Angeles, and caught a lucky break. Working as a freelance makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics—“I was really lucky to have had that chance, because I learned so much about makeup,“ Ta says now—he began experimenting with makeup and diligently posting his various makeup looks on Instagram. In three-and-a-half years, 26-year-old Ta saw his following grow from 6,000 to 760,000. Ta further says that he didn't know he wanted to be a makeup artist. He discovered makeup when he was 21 and that his career did not begin until three years ago when he moved to LA. He told Cosmopolitan Magazine in an interview “I did my first year of makeup in Scottsdale, Arizona but when I moved that was a huge change in my career. There was so much opportunity to work with different faces and brands in LA, and Instagram helped me a lot.” He has now a noteworthy client list including Kim Kardashian, Gigi Hadid, Chrissy Teigen, Bella Hadid, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Shay Mitchell, Jenna Dewan Tatum, Ariana Grande, Emily Ratajkowski, Blake Lively and Rosie Huntington Whiteley.
