Catfishing is a deceptive activity in which a person tricks someone online regarding the they look, but Patricia insisted it wasn't her 'mission' when she began posting.

In a video that has racked up over 14,700 views and thousands of likes, Patricia, who has nearly 150,000 followers on TikTok (@gemluvabeauty), skilfully alters her face in seconds.

"[When] I [first] started posting my make-up videos, people called me ugly or would say: 'What’s wrong with your face?'," Patricia, who is originally from Texas, but now lives in Kansas, US, told NeedToKnow.

"They then called me a catfish and I knew what that was, but that wasn’t my mission.

"I wanted to share my before and after videos because for so long, those words cut so much and you get into depression until you can finally get up and turn those negative comments into something bittersweet.

"So that day, I decided to make that video to show them. So yeah, I guess I am a catfish!"
