Gigi Hadid and her makeup artist Patrick Ta are pretty tight — so tight that they attend each others birthday parties and sing Disney songs at full belt while getting glam. Their relationship was born on Instagram, when Hadid stumbled across Ta's account and booked him for an awards show. Years later, Ta is responsible for dozens of iconic Gigi Hadid looks.
Ta has also accrued a dedicated roster of celebrity clients and now counts Shay Mitchell, Olivia Munn, Gigi's sister Bella Hadid, and Joan Smalls as regulars. I got a chance to sit in Ta's makeup chair and learn firsthand how he approaches doing makeup on some of the fashion industry's biggest stars.
