First, he got exceedingly interested in Photoshop and its ability to manipulate photos. Then he began to create photoshopped make-up designs on the computer.
After high school, Patrick Starr began to turn all the above interests to earning opportunities working as a hair and make-up artist and as a freelance photographer. He also worked at a MAC cosmetics shop while studying nursing at college.
Although Patrick had been making attempts at sharing his make-up interests on Youtube, his vlogging breakthrough came when he met a successful Youtuber named Talia Joy. At the time, Patrick had less than 20 Youtube subscribers while Talia had over one million. Although Talia’s area of vlogging interest was different (she was mainly motivational), she helped to put Patrick through on video editing and other Youtube success secrets she had used. Talia also helped to give visibility to Patrick Starr’s Youtube Channel using her own channel.

By his own testimony, he acquired the trait of diligence from his family. While he acquired the typical inclination for multitasking and creativity from his dad, he got the structured discipline from his mom. Both backgrounds blended into one to make Patrick Starr a naturally restless worker and innovator all his life.
