Adrienne Furrie - Makeup Artist | Beauty Brand Founder
Adrienne Furrie is a professional makeup artist and beauty brand founder with over 20 years of experience working in beauty, fashion, and business.
“From a young age I’ve been fascinated with the power of makeup and clothing to express and alter who we are; both how we feel about ourselves and how others respond to us. I started this business in part, to share that knowledge with people who might feel intimidated or left behind by the ‘beauty’ world.”
Adrienne works regularly with some of North America’s top stylists and photographers, on video production sets and in fashion shows. She also works as a makeup artist for special events and personal photoshoots. Armed with this skill set, Adrienne loves to take the latest tools and trends and make them accessible to everyone. Adrienne’s live makeup classes and one-to-one tutorials focus on teaching individuals make-up for the real world. Whether that’s how to master the non-makeup-makeup-look, or how to do the perfect smoky eye - clients leave feeling more pulled together, and a lot more confident in their own skin.
My goal is to ensure my clients never have to worry about doing their makeup “wrong”. I want them to look in the mirror with love and acceptance - confident in the knowledge of what steps to take to feel their most beautiful and polished.
