Gabriella Cataño-Salinas was born in the beautiful city of Miami Beach, Fl. She is the daughter of Colombian-American actress and tv host, Adriana Cataño and Mexican actor, Jorge Salinas. From a young age, Gabriella visited television and photoshoot sets with her mother. This is where her passion for the entertainment world, fashion and makeup sparked. As a child, she studied musical theater, acting, dance and art. In high school, her passion for makeup grew and she decided to take professional makeup classes with the best of the best. Gaby, as her friends call her, is certified in makeup by Mario Dedivanovic and Tamanna Roashan. In 2014, she started college and became a professional makeup artist simultaneously. Her love of all things beauty, as well as being in front of the camera, led her to start a bilingual YouTube channel in 2016 called “Catano Glam.” She later opened a second channel to dedicate to her English subscribers called “Catano Glam English” and kept her original channel in Spanish. Here she gives makeup tutorials, tests out new beauty trends, shares stories about her personal life, vlogs trips and influencer events, and more! Gaby is a “millennial influencer” and social media has become another passion of hers which led her to obtain a social media graduate certificate from the University of Florida after getting her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Florida International University. She has appeared on several TV shows such as Un Nuevo Dia, Despierta America, Hola TV as a social media influencer, makeup artist and panelist on the Millennials Segment on Despierta America. Gabriella’s love for being on camera and acting continued to grow as she took classes in Los Angeles at Killian’s Workshop, as well as in Miami at The Actory in 2018. She has had the opportunity to work with Telemundo 51 as live talent on several remotes. On her free time, she also enjoys modeling and has walked down the runways of the prestigious Custo Barcelona, Nicolas Felizola and Dian Von Furstenberg. Gabriella, the daughter of two stars, has surely gained her own starlight in the business and will continue to do so with her drive and perseverance.
