It’s no secret Patrick Ta is a makeup pro. Chances are you’ve seen him on Kourtney Kardashian’s snapchat story about 1,000x or in pics with Gigi Hadid. These are only two celebs on his long list of clients that constantly boast about his talent in makeup. A few of us from the Kopari team were fortunate enough to get up close and personal with Patrick during his makeup seminar at the Revolve Social Club this past Saturday, January 21st.
Bummed you missed out? Don’t stress it! Like always, we’ve got your back, especially when it comes to beauty. We made sure to jot down his tips and tricks in order to share a couple of his beauty secrets with you all.
Patrick’s 1st look of the day: Red Carpet With A Red Lip
Before starting this look on model Jenny Watwood, Patrick expressed how crucial skincare prep is prior to makeup. “No matter how much makeup you put on, how you prep your face is what really makes your makeup flawless” Patrick explained.
*Cue our new Coconut Skincare Line*
Like Patrick, we too believe in the importance of a good skincare routine. Each step in our recently launched skincare system was created for a specific purpose:
Coconut Oil Cleanser: This cleanser is the most kick-ass makeup remover that strips away bad oils and replaces them with good ones.
Coconut Rose Toner: Not only does this rose toner restore skin's pH balance and tighten pores, it is an uber hydrating spritz when you need an afternoon pick-me-up.
Coconut Face Cream: Rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, this face cream softens and soothes skin without clogging pores.
Lip Love: This gloss glides right on, locks in moisture, and gives your lips the perfect amount of sheen.
So now that your face is fresh and clean, it's time for makeup.
Okay, so how exactly does Patrick achieve this sleek, vibrant, and luscious red lip?
Step 1: Patrick starts by lining the lips with his go-to liner called Cherry by Mac.
*Secret* Sometimes clients ask him to overdraw their lips. Patrick discloses that the key to creating fuller lips is only overdrawing in the middle of the lip, not the sides. (I'm testing this tip out this weekend..wish me luck!)
Step 2: Next comes the lipstick. Patrick's loyalty lies with the Liquid Matte red lipstick by Sephora. "The texture is amazing and it isn't too dry," he discloses.
Step 3: Last but certainly not least, he tops off the red lips with Armani's 407 Drama Red gloss.
And just like that...Patrick's 'Red Lip Look' is red carpet ready!
To seal the deal, spritz a bit of the Coconut Rose Toner on your freshly done up face to lock in moisture and help your makeup stay all day.
