If you’re on Instagram, you’ve probably double-tapped or saved Patrick Ta’s work countless times without even knowing it. Gigi Hadid’s perfectly polished skin? Ta’s doing. Shay Mitchell’s colorful eye looks? Also Ta’s work. A quick scroll through his star-studded feed and you’ll realize his signature makeup style—a next-level glow and something bold—is what all of Hollywood wants. (It’s also what people want: Ta has 1.6 million followers on the ’gram.)
Of course, there are major perks that come with being such an in-demand, high-profile makeup artist, like being able to launch your own makeup line. [Ed. note: Ta’s latest collection, Monochrome Moment, hit shelves at the end of October.] But it also comes with a lot of pressure… You’ve got to be on top of your game at all times, think carefully about what you post (your feed is basically your professional portfolio), and constantly look for inspiration literally everywhere.
In fact, Ta’s latest source of inspiration came from one seriously iconic cartoon character we’ve only loved our entire lives… “We can all learn to express ourselves from [Disney’s] Minnie Mouse,” he explains. “Minnie is iconic. She’s classic, bold, playful, and lives for stepping outside of the box.” Unexpected? Sure. But also totally perfect for inspiring next-level holiday glam, as evidenced by the three festive, party-ready looks you’ll see below.
