Meet Adriana Marizcurrena

Today we’d like to introduce you to Adriana Marizcurrena.

Adriana, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Having a keen eye for beauty at a tender age, I was able to develop the Midas touch in the makeup industry – giving me a competitive edge. Being a first-generation half-Salvadorian half-Spanish powerhouse and devout Christian, I learned to appreciate the adversity that came with her heritage and faith. I incorporated a quality of quantity work ethic that I learned from my Basque father and Salvadorian mother. During my tenure as a makeup student, I juggled both earning my beauty credentials and polishing my artistry at M∙A∙C Cosmetics. Nowadays, my clientele list consist of some of Instagram’s most influential people and my signature style of beauty is unmatched. From A-list glam to beach side wedding, my artistic talents cover the entire beauty spectrum.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
I recall having a blast with my mom’s gorgeous drag queen friends who would come over and beat my face. They even won me first prize at the local Halloween competition. I was Disney princess Mulan.
