Gigi and Bella Hadid. Shay Mitchell. Adriana Lima. Hailee Steinfeld. They’ve all got one man to thank for their picture-perfect glow: celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta. Chances are you’ve probably run across his Instagram page that boasts 1.4 million followers.
In today’s episode of “Back Seat Face Beat,” we hitch a ride with Ta to the launch party for his eponymous beauty brand and learn how to glitter-glisten-gloss without looking like an oil slick.
Along the way, Ta spills a bit of tea around his celebrity clientele. What’s Gigi Hadid’s pump-up music of choice? Disney show tunes! As for her sister, Bella? Rap only. Come for the beauty advice—like how to lessen your highlighter without losing the glow—and stay for the kind words from Ta on the woman who influenced him the most in his career.
Spoiler: One is his mamma and the other is a Pretty Little Liar.

The best piece of the whole collection is a setting fan (yes, fan!) that allows the shimmer mist to dry seamlessly.
