Just six years ago, Patrick was working as a freelance makeup artist at an Arizona M.A.C. store. “I was really lucky to have had that chance, because I learned so much about makeup,” Patricks says in an interview with Vanity Fair. Being able to work with so many different types of people and having to do makeup super quick, he also said that working at M.A.C. has really helped him learn a lot in beauty.
