Early Life & Parents
Born on 4 April 1991, Manny Mua (real name: Manny Gutierrez) shared a passion for beautification since his early childhood.
Raised alongside two younger brothers, the primary source of his inspiration was his mom. Manny started dabbling in the makeup industry after watching his mom. She would beautify herself every morning before going to work, while her son would stare at her in total admiration.

While his interest came at an early age, he hid his passion all through his teenage years. His parents initially wanted him to become a doctor, so Manny even went to pre-med school.
But, the artist soon dropped out of med school to pursue a career in the makeup world. His parents had absolutely no idea about his desire for fashion and makeup. Apart from hiding his feelings toward the world of makeup, he also hid a huge life-altering fact.
Growing up in a Mormon household, the concept of homosexuality was a taboo in the family. While he had an interest in the same-sex, Manny had to suppress those urges due to his family's beliefs.
However, when he did come out as gay to his family, his parents sent him to conversion therapy to reverse the effects of being gay. The treatment had no impact on him. While his parents did struggle to understand their son, they slowly began to recognize his needs.
After some rough days in the beginning, Manny's parents are now fully supportive of both his sexuality and his career.
While the 28-year old has had a romantic interest in guys for some time now, Manny has no romantic partner linked to him till date.
However, previously Manny did set the internet on fire when he and fellow beauty vlogger Patrick Starrr shared a wedding picture of them. Their fans had a complete meltdown when they saw the two holding hands in front of the wedding minister. However, it was later unveiled that the photos were part of a wedding makeup series and nothing more.
Up to the year 2019, the 6 feet (1.83 m) height makeup artist has made similar use of the word "boyfriend." He casually jokes about dating one or sharing a life with one but has never been seen with a boyfriend.
