Iconic: MAC Cosmetics Does It With Patrick Starrr

It reads like a Cinderella story. In 2012, Patrick Starrr (original name Patrick Simondac) started working at Mac Cosmetics as a make-up artist. Five years later, Patrick Starrr is a, well, online star with more than 3 million subscribers on YouTube and almost 4 million followers on Instagram, and he is now the first ever influencer to be a key artist collaborator for MAC Cosmetics! Talking about a glass slipper moment, right?

If the shoe fits…

… you better werk it, and that’s what Patrick did. In November, he and worldwide renowned make-up brand MAC Cosmetics announced that they would be launching a holiday collection together. Now, MAC has done collaborations with beauty gurus in the past, but never to this extent. Patrick Starrr is their first Key Artist, which means that he got to create a whole collection of his own (including custom packaging) AND his collection will be sold worldwide. Boom. Rumour also has it that his contract with MAC does include a couple more collabs in the future, but that’s something only time can tell.

Signed, Patrick Starrr

The holiday collection screams Patrick Starrr. First of all, the packaging is white and sparkly, with a holographic signature printed on each of the items. And there are a lot! What does the collection consist of?

The starrr of the show is definitely ‘Patrick’s Powder’, a loose setting powder completely formulated and designed by Patrick himself. In the make-up community, Patrick Starrr is known for his baking (a technique of setting the face by letting loose powder sit on the skin for a long time and then wiping it away) and for using a lot powder in his daily beauty routine. Having the expert of loose setting powder create his own custom powder is quite simply genius.

Next to the powder, the collection also features three custom lipsticks, three matching lip glosses, lip liners and two eyeshadow quads. Not bad!

A full circle kinda thang

MAC really couldn’t have chosen a better influencer to do their first major wordwide collab with. Patrick Starr matches the brand perfectly. He’s a boy in make-up, and he’s also a big girl. His motto is ‘Make-up is a one size fits all’, and if that doesn’t scream MAC to you, we don’t know what does.

MAC is known for being extremely diverse, openminded and inclusive, and this collab showcases exactly that. It’s also kinda beautiful, how Patrick went from being an employee at MAC to being a global key artist for the brand. Don’t you just love it when life comes full circle?

The Patrick Starrr x MAC holiday collection will be available as from December 14th, but the setting powder is available for presale in the US right now!
