One of the hardest part of being an overseas bride is to look for wedding suppliers that are based in the Philippines since the only thing I can rely on is the internet. When I was looking for my HMUA, I want the best, as the makeup will play an important part on my wedding. I picked 5 options for my HMUA and one of them is Ms. Rea Pinpin. I started sending them emails and some of my options took almost 2 weeks to reply, only Ms. Rea responded to me immediately. For me, being prompt and punctual is a big factor in choosing a wedding supplier as they know how to value the time of their client. Second, is being approachable and accommodating. Then lastly, the artist's reputation as a HMUA. That's my criteria in choosing my wedding supplier and luckily, Ms. Rea has it all. She is very accommodating to all my queries so finally my search is over. I selected her and started communicating with her. She even helped me out when one of my wedding suppliers for our Pre-nup turned us down midway of our preparation and discussions. I was very happy that everything turned out well and even exceeded my expectations. I'm so glad that I chose her and I was so pleased in her superb work and service. She brought out the best in me and made me a gorgeous bride. Even her team are very friendly and accommodating. So to you, Ms. Rea, thank you for not disappointing me and valuing my hard earned money for being professional in all aspects.

I am fond of looking through portfolios of hair and make up artists even before I become engaged. I like those “I still looked myself but more beautiful” makeups. I came across lots of make up artists' works and would take note of them if I liked their works. After being engaged, I know I have to be more serious looking through them. I looked and inquired and even made a file for it. There are really good ones but still something was missing. And finally I came across Ms. Rea and looked through her works. I finally found what I'm looking for! Ms. Rea answers questions/inquiries immediately and would even call if she needs to. When I visited her studio, I know she's the right one. Fast forward to my wedding day, I was her canvass, and I felt that it is not just her profession but it is indeed her passion! Without really telling her how I really wanted to look like, I love the way I see myself in the mirror. I was lost for words for some time Ms. Rea was truly amazing! And yes, I was not able to do trial make up due to busy schedule but it was way beyond my expectations. Guests would always compliment how beautiful I was and really loved the way I looked. Even my uncle who rarely comment on things like these, told me that Ms. Rea was really good. And she was really nice too!I love the way I still looked myself, only more beautiful on my wedding day. My second look was also a wow! Just the way I wished it to be. Ms. Rea is truly a gem! Thank you so much!.
PS. I love how OC Ms. Rea is, when it comes to eyebrows and eyes! Hope I can find another reason/occasion to work with her again.

As a bride, it's a bit overwhelming to find suppliers who will meet your wants and needs. I'm a bride based in Singapore so everything I could rely on is the internet to do my search for suppliers. The exciting day came when I have to choose my makeup artist. Rea Pinpin was the first makeup artist that appeared when I was doing my research. I've checked out her website & facebook to see her works and was truly amazed with my first glance at her brides. I've also browsed few HMU artists but I keep coming back to Rea's website which made me realize that Rea is the HMU artist that I've been looking for... I've then decided to book her as my HMU artist. She responded quickly to all my emails and that gesture has shown how professional she is. So I told myself, I had the perfect choice. I first met her during our prenup. She's the cheerful and friendly type. The makeup session with her was never a dull moment for me. I was so amazed by her work (she was able to transform me to a beautiful young lady). I really love the three different looks and she really did a fantastic job! When my family and friends saw our prenup photos, they all said the same thing, "You look stunning! Amazing HMU artist!" Our big day came and I was so excited to see Rea. She's the closest supplier to me and I just love working with her. Thanks to her, I felt like I'm the prettiest bride ever. My HMU was amazingly beautiful on that very special day of my life. Yes, I really made the right choice of choosing her as my HMU artist. She's a very passionate and kind-hearted person. I think the most important asset of her is that she relates well with her brides. She will definitely be my HMU artist for my future events and occasions.

To all the men out there, one of the best gifts to give your future wife on her wedding day is 0% stress in the beauty department. This is why I am so thankful that my husband found Rea and I was honestly sold right after a test-run at her studio. I was enamored by her professionalism, knowledge, and sweetness. On my wedding day, I slept for only two hours and remember begging her to hide my eye bags. She successfully did and I was overjoyed when the pictures came out. She truly uses high quality make-up and even gave me “practice eyelashes” a week prior just to make sure I would be comfortable. Yet the true measure of character is how people act when you’re not watching. I was incredibly busy the morning of the wedding, and my Aunt from London came slightly unprepared. I knew she wasn’t part of the assigned number that Rea would cover, but she didn’t even flinch. She made her so beautiful and included her ever so sweetly, and for that I am grateful. Rea you are the epitome of the phrase "if you do what you love, you won’t work a day in your life."

For a meticulous bride like me who pays attention to every single detail done to my face and perfection matters most, I would highly recommend Ms. Rea Pinpin. It is a BIG blessing for me to have found and acquired her professional hair and make up services. My make up came out beautifully and I loved it! Through the happy tears, everything stayed put and was wonderful. I am confident to say my look was amazing because so many people were giving such great compliments about my make up and with my mom too. She made her look really gorgeous! She's raving about you Rea! They did an extra special hair do also for me that have truly become a highlight as well since my veil is open at the back during the wedding ceremony.
Not only that Ms. Rea a wonderful & a very professional make up artist, her upbeat, positive energy just lights me up and gives me that good vibe.
You did a fantastic job Ms. Rea and thank you for giving me the best look I've ever had!... especially with the eyebrows, of which ONLY YOU had it perfected just the way I wanted. Truly the best among all I have tried. I will definitely contact you again in the future. Wishing you only the best in everything!!!
- Jam Lay-Ang
I came across rea's portfolio while browsing thru the internet. Her profile is very impressive. Every bride would like to get the best of the best for her big day. But for me, even though i want the best, it scares me as well. I'm scared that it would be hard to talk to those well known in the industry; that they would just do their "signature style" and I would not be able to tell them what I really want (or don't want). Admit it or not, there are those kinds of suppliers. But not Rea. I could tell from the way she responded to my emails. I liked her immediately.
The first time we met was during our engagement shoot. My gut feel was right - she's super nice, friendly, downright humble, asks you what you want, tells you what she thinks, and really, really good at her craft. And oh, super pretty pa! I told her pa nga na the reason why I booked her is baka she can make me as pretty as her hahaha!
She and her team were very patient and maasikaso during our engagement shoot. Re-touch, ayos, re-touch. That was very tiring. But they did not complain about it nor could you see any trace of it in their faces and the work that they do. They will tell you pa how good you're doing sa shoot. HMUA/fan/cheerers/friend.
I super loved her. I knew right then and there that I will look my best during my big day. I know that I made the right choice. I highly recommend Rea to all future brides, debutantes, and whatnot - all those who require an HMUA. Rea's definitely the best choice. You will get the best v2.0 of yourself and a good friend in Rea, too. Thank you so much, Rea!!!
- JK Galang-Reyes
Rea exceeded my expectations and I'm really happy and grateful that I had her on my wedding. She replied to my emails promptly. She really deserves to be named the best HMUA in the Philippines. First time I met her was on my engagement session. My first impression was she's OC, and right there and then I knew I was in good hands. She paid attention to every detail of my makeup. She's very particular with the eyes and eyebrows. She even took pictures of me aside from looking meticulously in the reflection mirror to check if my make up was perfectly done. In spite of her great talent, Rea is really nice, friendly, approachable and down to the earth. Awesome talent with great personality, what else can you ask for?!
Thank you so much Rea for making me gorgeous on my wedding day!! Never was I disappointed and I'm so happy that you made me look my best!! You are officially my HMUA in the Philippines on future occasions.
- Mercy Tizon-Nguyen
Rea was my classmate once in elementary and again in high school. When one of my high school friends, Cheska, got married over a year ago, she chose Rea to be her HMUA, who had already made a name for herself as a successful HMUA. Cheska has always been beautiful, but Rea made her look even more gorgeous on her wedding day. Next to get married among my high school barkada was Dei, who absolutely glowed and looked stunning from the moment she walked down the aisle up to the last toast of the night. When I got engaged last year, I immediately thought of having Rea as my HMUA. With all my friends saying nothing but praises about her, how could I resist? And so our wedding date was set and everything was planned out. Rea was supposed to attend to only me, while the makeup of my entourage was assigned to another HMUA. On the week of my wedding—during which Pope Francis was here and staying specifically in Villamor Air Base, inside which our church was situated—the other HMUA backed out due to traffic constraint. Just imagine how terrifying this predicament was for me at that time. Thankfully, Rea came to the rescue and showed no hint of hesitation in replacing the other HMUA. Now, that’s professionalism at its finest. Rea assured me that her crew would show up no matter how gruesome traffic might be. And then came our wedding day. Traffic was dreadful, indeed, but show up they really did. Rea and her team were already at our hotel room while I was still busy in the shower. Haha. After greeting us all warmly, she immediately proceeded to prepping my makeup, while her friendly and very patient hairstylist, set my hair—saving us all a lot of time. Rea kept me very comfortable and maintained a great disposition the whole time. She really listened to my preferences and took note of everything that I said. Every time she’d look in the mirror to study the brushstrokes she’d made, she’d squint her eye to check on the smallest detail, the lightest shade, the faintest shimmer. Another thing that I appreciated about her is the fact that she did more than what was expected of her every single time. She took care of me, and I felt important. While she is obviously highly meticulous about her craft, she keeps her cool, which is just admirable and such a test of character. You could just tell that Rea has always been destined to do what she is doing now. Her art comes alive effortlessly through you. Aside from making you look beautiful, she’ll make you feel beautiful, and she’ll bring out the most beautiful version of yourself on the most special day of your life thus far.

Every bride would probably have her own concept of a perfect dream wedding. Who doesn't right? Imagining yourself walking down the aisle, wearing your beautiful white dress and getting that feel that you are the prettiest girl that day while everyone's eyes is on you. Just the thought of it makes you feel excited despite the stress the wedding preparation brings. This is how I felt back then. Here is one thing, I'll tell you a secret. It's actually having the best make -up artist. The ultimate challenge for me and my husband was to put everything together in 5 months given that we were 10,000 miles away from home. We made all our research and contacts with the suppliers through online. This is how I ran over Rea's website and read an amazing feedback from her client's husband. I quickly knew she was the one I want to work with on my big day. Thereon, I sent her a message right away and she was very responsive with my inquisition. We finally met during our first visit in the Philippines. Me and my husband decided to stop by her studio to do a trial make up prior to our pre-nuptial shoot. Rea was very accommodating and very hands on to every detail of my contours. She made sure that her ideas coincide with what I want as a bride. I left her studio very satisfied with her work. Wedding day came, her team was on time and on top of everything. Compliments were pouring that day. All in all it was fun working with Rea. I would absolutely love to work with her again given a chance.

Hi Ms. Rea. We will be getting our wedding photos soon and we’re super excited! Thanks a lot Ms. Rea for what you did to us, indeed, money can’t buy your talent. You and your team are very professional. We enjoyed and we’re very much comfortable having you around. Thanks again Ms. Rea from me and my husband, (honestly speaking), you gave us more than what we paid for.
- Princess Segarra-Perona
Having Rea do our make-up - for both the pre-nuptial shoot and the wedding is one of the best decisions we’ve made. She is really sweet, friendly and so easy to work with. She listened to our suggestions and gave us useful advice - from make-up to skin care and even about wedding preparations. You could tell from the moment we met her that she knew exactly what she was doing (and she is very good at it) and she loves her job.
Rea and her team did an amazing job, everyone looked extra beautiful and radiant that day. I especially loved the part when she made my chinita eyes look bigger. My make-up stayed fresh until the after-party, I still got compliments even after the whole celebration.
I highly recommend Rea to all future brides to be or to anyone who wants to look fab on their special day.
- Kristine Franco-Lagrosa
For me choosing the perfect HMUA is one of the most important things in planning your wedding. Even if you have the best photographer and videographer in town, if you don’t have the right HMUA, you still wouldn’t get the perfect memorabilia you are hoping for.
As they say, the bride's beauty comes out naturally on her wedding day.....very true but this could be enhanced by the confidence and happiness that could only come from within. On your wedding day, you would be put into a lot of stress. Your HMUA's job is to boost your confidence and make sure that despite of these, you would still look the best you have ever been.
It's not the style, nor the brand of make-up used that enhances one's beauty. It's the relationship the bride and the HMUA built from prenup to wedding day that produces the most beautiful wedding memory.
To Rea and team, thank you for making me the happiest bride! Our photos and videos are proof of how beautiful our wedding was. I knew from the start that I chose the perfect HMUA. I can no longer remember how I found you online but you were meant for me, it was bound to happen.
- Odette Soriano-Ludlow
Getting everything right for the big day can turn a special day into a magical event and that includes choosing the best hair and makeup artist for my bride. All I wanted for the wedding is for Odette to be at her happiest. A very big thanks to Rea and her team for making this happen. The way they worked and integrated with our coordinators and photographers made our day and big event run smoothly. They all made us look and feel great all day.
- John Ludlow
Groom of Odette Soriano
I am the type of girl who is not into make-up. Maybe because I had past experiences that my face was so white that I looked like an “Espasol” or somehow, it feels like I look better without make-up. Since I would be getting married, there was no choice for me but to find a Hair and Make-Up Artist (HMUA). I believe every bride wants to be the most beautiful bride on her special day. But I did not know where to start.
Fortunately, my roommate suggested to try Ms. Rea Pinpin as she was her sister’s HMUA on her wedding day. I received a very positive feedback and moreover, I also made a research and I could find positive reviews about how professional she is. Indeed, I can now attest to that. From the day my fiance and I met her until our Big Day, there was no single moment that I felt stressed in dealing with her. She is very friendly and she had always responded to my messages and giving suggestions that were convenient to us. That is how professional she is in providing service not only to us but to all her clients.
I would like to take this chance to thank again Ms. Rea for the opportunity to become one of our suppliers. My husband and I really loved how I looked on our Wedding Day. It made me feel like I was the most stunning bride. In fact, all of our families, friends, and relatives said that I looked great.
- Mary Gay Bacus-Martinez
Hi Rea! First of all, I would like to thank my sister Diana who resides in the Philippines for referring me to you. I am so grateful and thankful for having you as my wedding make up artist. You understand how beautiful and gorgeous-looking we, as brides, want to be on our special day. You and your team were so supportive not only to me as your bride client, but also to my family. You go above and beyond your profession. I admire you for having that passion. May you continue to love what you do, so that you can continue to make people see how truly beautiful they are through your works. More power to you and your team Rea! It was a pleasure being one of your stunning brides. Thank you very much!
- Rosette Santioque-Dizon
I saw Ms. Rea Pinpin through the Internet, actually during that time, I already talked to HMUA greatly recommended by my bestfriend. I said yes though I’m not fully convinced yet. That’s why I secretly searched for other HMUA. Luckily, I found the website of Ms. Rea Pinpin. Her portfolio is amazing but what convinced me more are her client’s testimonials. So I immediately sent her an email and in less than 10 minutes she replied. Wow!!
Ms. Rea, she’s very professional, she and her team are on time, kahit madaling araw pa yan. She knows how to make her client comfortable. She’s the fairy godmother of all her client brides, with her brush as the magic wand and her talent as her power. Achieved na achieved yung look na gusto ko nung wedding. Lahat super nagandahan sa akin. She knows how to show the true beauty of a bride. Ms. Rea thank you so much.
- Michelle Alelis-Barquilla
Ms. Rea is a highly professional and excellent make up artist! I am definitely happy and I felt so beautiful from trial to pre-nup and most especially to my wedding, she did a wonderful job... All my friends and guests have nothing but nice things to say... My friends are asking me who did my make up? I’m proud to say that it’s Ms. Rea Pinpin! And they said "uy, sikat un...kilala ko un! Magaling talaga siya". :)
- Kaye Punzalan-Rongavilla
What an amazing job you did on my face, Rea! Days before the wedding, I was ill at ease because my face had darkened due to sunburn. However, with your great skill, you were able to even out my tone. Guests have not even noticed it and my other skin imperfections. In fact, I got a lot of compliments how lovely I and my daughters and sisters (who were all part of the entourage) looked with our light and natural make-up. Not only did you do a splendid job on our faces, you were such a great help in providing those extra bits and pieces such as lacing my gown, teaching me how to move gracefully, and what accessories to wear. I will definitely recommend you to other future brides. Enormous thanks to you, lovely lady!
- Atty. Minerva Miclat-Martinsen
Being a lady without any idea about makeup, I really needed someone who can decide what´s best for me. So when Rea asked me on how I wanted to look on my wedding day, my response was "Ikaw na ang bahala, I trust you". And so, she magically did it her own way, carefully performing everything to attain perfection.
Almost all of my family members and guests admired my makeup. They said it was genuinely natural and I looked very glamorous. The makeup lasted the whole day as well even after crying on the father and daughter dance.
Rea, you´re a master when it comes to makeup. You truly have the gift and thank you for using it in making other people´s special moments very memorable. You enormously contributed to making my wedding day a blissful one. Thank you and God bless!

One of the most important suppliers in a wedding is the HMUA. They make the couple especially the bride beautiful on their most awaited and special day. During our wedding preps, Brainard and I were having a hard time looking for our wedding suppliers because we're both working abroad. He's in Qatar while I am in Abu Dhabi. As I've checked Rea’s website, reviews/testimonials/portfolio, I felt that she's the one. I tried to communicate with her at first thru email and within the day, I already have a response. When I found her FB account, I saw mutual friends who got her also as their HMUA on their wedding. They were very satisfied and impressed with her. Nakakatuwa, kasi parang it added up to the fact that she could be trusted and she’s professional. What I really appreciate about her is that mabilis sya magreply. As an OFW kasi, especially if there's time difference, ang hirap makipagcommunicate with suppliers na nasa Pinas. But with her, nakakatuwa and less stress. Anything that I need to inquire or if I need any assistance/request, she'll reply immediately. I usually message her at 7pm (UAE time), she'll reply immediately 11pm (Phils time), in matter of minutes nagrereply siya. I felt how important her clients are to her. She considers her client's suggestions. She has good advice on what would look good on her client’s features. (Btw Rea, I love the color of my hair now, thanks to your suggestion. Hehe) She's very friendly and super nice, aside from being pretty.
I requested her to be early as in early on our wedding day due to heavy traffic in our place. She and her team showed up at the hotel very early nga talaga. Of all my suppliers, siya pinakauna sa lahat. Thank you so much Ms Rea. As in sobrang thank you. It was not just the hair and make up that made me beautiful that day but most especially the way she treated and made me feel comfortable. Yung feeling of confidence din na sobrang ganda ko. Iba e. hehehe
Rea did an amazing job, extremely professional, talented and fun to be with. She uses high quality professional make up that lasts the entire day. I didn’t even have to do any touch up. She was one of the best decisions we’ve made on our wedding.
Thank you so much Rea! To all the future brides, REA PINPIN is highly recommended!

As an artist I can tell the difference between a good and outstanding work of art and as a bride I want everything to go smooth and perfect. Being beautiful is one of the most treasured present a bride can have on her big day. We feel so blessed that God brought the right people into our lives. Excellent make up service! Being outside of the country and planning for a wedding is not easy. Thank God we found you! You were always responsive to our calls and messages. You were so kind and approachable. Thank you Ms. Rea for being so wonderful and professional. You and your team came just right on time. We are so blessed to have you. We love the result. It's simple, beautiful and elegant. My make-up reflects best in person and in pictures. That is what I've been looking for. We are more than happy and satisfied. You did a fantastic job on my hair and makeup. No pimples and eye bags. Cheers to you and your team! God bless you more.
- Cris Eres-Morales
It is a pleasure to work with awesome people. I know the fact that there are numerous HMUA team in the wedding industry, but I am very confident that my beauty will come out with the hands of Ms. Rea Pinpin. "You are one of a kind". From the bottom of our hearts, thank you very much to you and your team for a great service during our wedding. Thank you for making me beautiful, relaxed, and fresh-looking bride. You are very professional, accommodating, cheerful, and (of course) gorgeous. I really love my makeup, "perfect kilay", and elegant-looking hairstyle. That was the exact HMU I envisioned prior to wedding and you made it into reality. I wish you all the best and I am sure that your future brides will be as happy and satisfied as me. More referrals to come and please continue your excellent service. Again, thank you very much and God bless your team.
- Katrina Victorino-Mejia
My husband and I are not big fans of makeup so choosing a makeup artist was a challenge in our wedding planning. We tried a couple of people but my husband teased me that he might think he's marrying someone else. Then we found Ms Rea, we did a trial and were very pleased with her work. I didn't even want to take the makeup off! It looked so natural I didn't feel like I was wearing any, yet I felt so beautiful. Her team did an amazing job on our wedding day. From the hair to the makeup-- we couldn't be happier. She knew exactly what to do without me saying anything. It was so stress free with her but the most amazing thing was that not only did I look amazing-- I felt amazing as well. Her skill, professionalism and down- to-earth personality is one of a kind. If I were to do it all over again, I would no doubt choose her again.

I had Ms. Rea as my makeup artist for my wedding and she did a fantastic job on my make up. I had no sleep at all that time and was worried about my eye bags but still she made me looked my best on my big day and turned me into a blushing bride. I was completely delighted when I saw our photos as I looked flawless and fresh. She's talented, friendly, and easy to work with. She also did my make up during our rainy prenup, and I was amazed as my make up lasted throughout the day without any touch up despite of the heavy rains. Overall, I love the results. Thanks again Ms. Rea and more power!
- Lene Belaro-Chua
Dear Rea and the team,
Erwin and I just wanted to formally say a huge “thank you” for making our Silver Wedding Anniversary so beautiful. You truly made me feel like a princess. I am still getting comments from guests on how awesome and creative my hairstyles were and my makeup was amazing. You really should be proud of the fantastic job you did.... and you surprised me when you turned up at the church to do touch ups before the bridal march … that was one of the most exciting and memorable parts of the wedding … I am so overwhelmed…
Thank you once again for your magnificent service and all the best in creating magical moments for the other brides-to-be.
Stay safe and please keep in contact.
- Erwin & Yolly Ramos
I can say that I was very particular about how everything was supposed to look on our wedding day, and my hair and make-up was no exception. I sent Ms. Rea pegs of how my hair and make-up was supposed to look during the wedding and the reception. I even pointed out what specific character of the pegs I wanted to be brought out. While I knew she was very talented and accommodating, we all know that on the day of our actual wedding, we could only hope and pray that things go the way we imagine.
I must say, Ms. Rea was nothing short of exceptional. She was the first supplier to arrive that morning. Her team was quick on how to schedule everybody and wasted no time. I cannot even explain how they did my hair and make-up exactly how I wanted, right down to the twirl of the last strand. But the best part for me was simply how good I felt when she was around. She made me forget my worries and had the whole room laughing and reminiscing before the big event. While I was waiting alone in the wedding car, I even got to text her to come inside where she calmed my nerves right before I walked down the aisle.
Ms. Rea exceeds expectations by miles. No doubt one of, if not, the best wedding decision I made.
- Diana Zamora-Ramirez
I got most of my wedding suppliers from a Bridal Fair last Oct 2012 and most are quick/on-the-spot decisions because of the discounts. But not my HMU!!! I told myself that time – I can’t rush on this, I need to make sure I’ll get the best one coz it’s a make or break thing on my BIG DAY. I prayed that I will be able to meet someone na talagang magaling and at the same time makakagaanan ko ng loob. Scouting and deciding part was very hard – especially I am working abroad – hindi ako makapagpatrial ng makeup and all I have to rely on was the internet – so that’s where I get in touch with pretty Rea. What a blessing – I seriously thanked God for that.
I go thru her site and more than the portfolio – I was more drawn into her testimonials page and reading thru them – I felt she was a good candidate so I sent her a mail just like the other HMUs that I’ve inquired to and there is just something about her replies that I felt connected to her. Well to cut the story short – I booked her services. Now fast track to our Pre-nup Makeup – it was indeed a pleasant first meet up for us – I felt comfortable with her and I soooo loved my Hair & Make up – “Artista ang Peg”. But the next day was even better than the latter when Rea’s team came with us in Lakeshore, Pampanga for another Prenup session. Doon ko mas nakilala ang totoong Rea – apart from her exceptional talent as makeup artist – she is very down to earth, napakabait, napakacomfortable kasama – she even helped me out in tying my shoes… Grabe talaga! Sabi ko kagandang babae naluhod para talian ako ng sapatos. And on my BIG day – talagang hindi ako nagworry at all coz I was confident that she will really make me look like a princess. At the same time – Rea and her team were like a family na to us. Ang bilis namin nakapagconnect sa isa’t-isa and even my entire family loved her.
In summary – it was really a blessing having met Rea – Hindi lang ako naging super pretty on my Big day – I gained pa a special friend na I will really treasure for life.

I am so thankful for having Ms. Rea as my make artist. One thing that I liked most about her besides being a good makeup artist and gorgeous as always, is her being so reachable. I always get fast replies just a couple of minutes after any concern or inquiry, which is very important to me as I am currently working abroad. She is also very professional not just because of her certificates or papers, but also for the beautiful output of her work in her every client. She is well organized, calm, and knows how to make us feel very welcome. As my husband said, Ms. Rea made me looked stunning and that made me feel so confident inspite of worrying about my pimple & eye bags caused by lack of sleep, which she made amazingly disappear through her makeup. No words can express my gratitude Ms. Rea! You did a great job. I will definitely recommend you to everyone.
- Venus Perez-Tadifa
I found it really difficult to choose my make-up artist. It's my big day so naturally, I would like to look my best. I did lots of research, made lots of inquiries, 'til I ended up booking Ms Rea after seeing her portfolio online. I'm glad I made the right decision. Ms Rea is really nice. She made me feel comfortable the first time we met when she did my prenup make-up. And she is truly a professional. She's so good at what she does.
I didn't have any peg on how I wanted my make-up to look like. I just let Ms Rea do her thing... And I was very satisfied with the outcome. As others would say, I looked really beautiful. :)
Thank you so much again, Ms Rea. More than two weeks after, I still keep on admiring how great I looked at my wedding and that wouldn't be possible without you. :)
- Juno Roxas-Ramos
I'm a bride based in overseas and yes it's really difficult to choose suppliers for the wedding day. Just like any bride-to-be, I would want nothing but the best on my big day. And so I made sure that I will have the best HMUA that will help me look really stunning on my wedding day. I am so happy and honoured to have Ms. Rea Pinpin as the makeup artist for our pre-nup and wedding. She certainly lives up to her glowing reputation as being talented, knowledgeable and professional make-up artist. I have no hesitation in recommending Ms. Rea Pinpin to all the future brides. She's the best! And again, I just wanted to say THANK YOU Ms. Rea and your team for your amazing work on my wedding day! I knew from looking at your portfolio that we were in good hands and you never disappointed us! :) Your work was beautiful, professional, long lasting, flattering, everything I wanted it to be! I loved my make-up. My sisters and my mom all looked stunning! I loved that you could achieve such a natural-looking result and I was so happy that I still looked like me. You and your team were very professional and friendly. Thank you again and wish you all the best in your career. Xoxo

I knew Rea from high school but only got to see her recently during another schoolmate’s wedding. I was part of the entourage and Rea was the HMUA of the bride (Cheska). I liked Cheska’s look and wanted the same for myself. Plus, she was highly recommended by Cheska too. Truth is, I felt a great deal of apprehension about having makeup on. On the few occasions that I actually allowed someone to put makeup on my face, most of the time, I didn’t like how I looked after. My strong features even got stronger bordering to looking mataray. Anyhow, I voiced out my worries to Rea and even sent her my old picture as a reference of what I don’t want to look like on my wedding day. Rea was very accommodating and said she’ll take note of that. On the day of the wedding, I didn't get enough sleep, I got dark circles around my eyes. Rea assured me that she’ll take care of it and yes, she did. She made me a pretty bride pa : ). Two thumbs up for that Rea. I was smiling the whole time because I loved how I look. Many people came up to me and said, “ang ganda ng makeup mo”. It was fresh, natural-looking, exactly how I like it. I always knew she’s this down to earth and very accommodating person but now that I was able to work with her, I can say that she definitely knows her craft. I would recommend Rea to everyone. Thanks Rea!

First and foremost, Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you for making me the prettiest on my special day!! I did repeat three times to express my genuine gratitude. It was one of the highlights of my wedding day and you were a part of it. You know exactly what I wanted. It’s like you have a magic dust sprinkled in your brushes that really does the magic. You’re a blessing!! Know that your service will pass on through our friends and relatives. We love you and we'll make sure to visit you anytime we're in the country.
- Sharon Villar-Gutierrez
My husband did the selection of suppliers. I am always confident in his decisions because he always go for the best quality/talent. So far, we have not had any regrets. What we saw in Rea's website is really the quality delivered based from our experience with her. She's also very nice to work with, very friendly and cheerful. My worries during the wedding day itself were gone because she chatted with me like everything is going to be fine. With only 2 hours of sleep the day before the wedding, she still managed to make me look fresh and proud to say gorgeous! She also managed to move the clock 10 years back for my mom! She’s definitely worth it. Thanks and all the best, Rea!
- Clayd Torreon-Marban
Days before the wedding, I was kidding around with my friends and family about my to-be-watched-out-for “bridal beauty” haha. It turned out to be more than I expected! Looking for suppliers while based abroad was a big challenge for us, so we are extremely grateful for meeting Rea, who is easy to talk to even via emails and promptly replies to our incessant questions. Our first meeting and trial session went very well because she has this positive and friendly vibe, which immediately put us at ease. On our big day, Rea and her professional team was so punctual that they actually arrived earlier than scheduled. :) The ladies and I loved our hair and airbrush make-up. I truly felt beautiful and radiant on my wedding day. Thanks, Rea and more blessings!
- Glaiza Seguia-Godinez
One of the most cherished moments of a woman is actually her very own wedding day!!
Soon to be couple makes sure that everything is planned well and that every moment would be captured and kept forever. As like every bride desires, I wish to have the photographer capture the best of me as photos/videos will remain to be looked at for the rest of our lives.
I'm very glad that I indeed made the right choice in choosing Rea Pinpin as my HMUA.
She was able to highlight my best features and improve my imperfections to its best.
Thank you so much Ms. Rea Pinpin for making me feel and look as the most beautiful bride in town : ) (Even my sisters fell in love with your art!) You are truly a highly recommended make-up artist!
artistic + meticulous + professional + the best = REA PINPIN
May you be able to touch more people by making their special moments extra special by your extra ordinary passion and professionalism with the extra extravagant services you offer. God bless.
- Grace Hui-Chang
I hope all brides-to-be out there will understand how important it is to have good makeup on your wedding day. From the point of view of a person who does her own makeup on a day to day basis, everyday makeup is totally different from the professional makeup you require for an event, especially your wedding day where you have to be photo and video ready. Which is why I am happy to have found Rea.
When we met for the trial, I immediately noticed how much Rea loved her job and how dedicated she is to her craft – to make you look your best without being overdone. She always initiates fun conversations so I was never bored throughout the process.
I like how Rea asks for opinions on what colors you prefer and what kind of look you intend to have. She doesn’t just go ahead and pile makeup on your face. She is just so easy to work with and I highly recommend her.
My overall look on my wedding day wouldn’t have been possible without you, Rea and your entire team. Thank you so much and I hope to work with you again in a future event.
- Ehren Dayrit-Piscos
"Now that I have a moment, I would like to THANK YOU for making my day memorable. You spoke to me days before the wedding regarding my expectations and concerns about makeup to make sure I felt comfortable. You are a creative genius! My makeup lasted well despite the hot weather. Got so many compliments from people who saw me that day and also from those that have seen my wedding pictures. It wasn't just your talent, but your enthusiasm and good heart really made the preparations special. Personally, I couldn't have hoped for more. It was lovely to meet you and wish you all the very best for the future."
- Raquel Ngo-Lumactud
I always dreamed to be a cute bride someday and thanks to Ms. Rea, it came true! My friends loved my look and I too was very satisfied. From the trial makeup session up to the wedding day, Ms. Rea was very professional and never failed to show how excellent she is in her craft. Not to mention, she's sweet, nice and approachable.
For me, Ms. Rea is one of the best makeup artists here in the country and I'm so happy to have found her portfolio page in Facebook. I really made the right choice.
- Jennifer Malig-on-Estrella
Happy mother’s day to your mom and hubby’s mom dear! And to you as well! I was a bride under your care for a day. And just like a true mother, you brought out all that’s best in me. My happiness and beauty radiated on my face, and everyone saw it. I knew I was in great hands when I got your reminder to rest and be worry free the night before I was wed. I was your priority, much like how a mother prioritizes her baby. And though I was pasaway and didn’t get enough rest (hehe), you came to the rescue - like all moms are capable of! No denying this since everyone present saw the result of what your hands and your hairstylist’s hands did to my appearance! Today I celebrate you, dear. You were a most loving mom to the bride that I was. And I deeply felt it and I am very grateful for it!
- Pauline Ayonon-Piandee
Whatever the look… Whatever the occasion, you will not be disappointed.
Rea’s work is always beautiful and flawless. She’s really amazing! She will always find the perfect look for anyone. Her work never fails to impress. Not only was the makeup top class, she’s so pleasant and friendly and made me feel completely at ease and perfectly relaxed on the morning of my wedding. I want to truly thank you and your team for an awesome job. I along with my bridal party were lucky to have your services on the most important day of my life. Would definitely recommend you to anyone who wants to look like a million dollars!
- Erika Jill Perez-Bonifacio
Hi Ms. Rea! I just wanted to say thank you for everything! Not only did you make me feel the most gorgeous I have ever felt, you also kept me calm and I can't thank you enough for that. I could not believe that with all the crying I did my make-up stayed in place. It also amazes me how you can be a make up artist and a friend at the same time. It was great working with you, Ms. Rea. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much.
- JV De Guzman-Demaisip
hi rea! every time we look at the pictures philip never fails to compliment my looks that day. everyone tells me, i look beautiful with my make up, it looks so natural and so light. words aren't enough to express how thankful we are. i know i really should invest on make up for that day because thru pictures and videos we will remember that significant day, and i was so right to have you as my artist, never really had regrets neither doubts. speaking of emotions, i never thought philip would be the first one to breakdown, buti nalang pogi pa din ahahaha and those emotional moments didn't even ruin our make up, thanks to your lasting products and incomparable skills.. combined together, perfectly associated. you are truly gifted, continue to make every bride radiantly beautiful. i wish you best of luck! regards to your dearest hubby! again rea, thank you so so much! mwah!
- Raisa Dianne Valdez-Bernardo
Thank you Ms. Rea for making me feel good, relaxed, comfortable, and beautiful on my wedding day! Your very sweet calming voice, kind, and encouraging words while at the same time trying to make me look my best on my special day are highly appreciated. I can't tell you enough how much I loved working with you! I got more than what I paid for, because truly, you are excellent in doing your job and you're very professional but at the same time you showed genuine kindness, which is very important to every anxious/nervous bride. The preps was a bit stressful because of some last minute changes but your sweet voice, kind encouragements, and compliments really made a big difference. Plus, you're very sophisticated and beautiful so I got the perfect package! It was lovely and a sweet experience working with you, Ms Rea! ‘Til next time.

When I needed magic hands for my wedding day, I did not have second thoughts because I'm sure she's the perfect one that I'm looking for. She gave her best shot on me. That's what she is, like what most people say, a top makeup artist in the Philippines. In a spun of time, she turned an ugly duckling into a delicate swan. This boosts my confidence on my wedding day. What I have learned? One should really need to look good to have the guts in entertaining her guests and that's what Rea did. Lots of my family and friends liked my makeup especially my hubby.
Aside from that, she's a PERFECTIONIST. She's not contented on “tama na yan or ok na yan.” She wants everything to be flawless. I find her very keen in all the details. When she applies makeup, she's very generous in covering all the unwanted marks on my face which gave me a perfect look.
- Maane Garcia-Delupio
Every bride wants to look beautiful on their wedding day, what bride wouldn’t. Finding the best MUA is a priority in every bride’s list. No need to look far, Rea is one of the best MUA. I'm not much of a make up wearer but Rea's portfolio of natural beauty brides appealed me. Rea's personality is so warm and easy to talk to. I gave her my trust on what color and style make up and she delivered more than I had expected. The result was amazing (when I saw my pictures it’s more than my words can express). Having her as my MUA on my once in a lifetime event is something I did not regret.
- Ritsia Anindita Wastitiamurti-Kuncoro
Hi Ms. Rea, I can't thank you enough for making my wife look at her best on our big day. You are very talented and we are forever grateful. Thank you also for being so prompt, professional, and most of all fun and calming in the midst of all the jitters! You truly completed our “all-star cast”!
- Jeff Diego, MD
Ms. Rea Pinpin did the HMU for my wedding and I would not have been happier! She is very professional and did a fantastic job especially in helping me to be calm and relaxed. The stress of my preparation thinking about the weather and other stuffs melted away as she have transformed me to a glowing bride on one of the most incredible days of my life. I won't forget her telling me before I walk down the aisle "to just smile and never squint because of the sun". I could not even know how to tell her how much it meant to me. Everyone told me how amazing I looked. I got so many compliments on my hair and makeup, and both looked great even at the end of the night.
We got the photos back and my husband Dane couldn’t stop admiring how pretty I am. And even the people from his place who just saw my picture! That is hard to top! Thank you Ms. Rea! I felt like a princess on my wedding day and I appreciate all you did to ensure I looked my best!
- Gaylenn Ramos-Garrison
First of all, I would like to THANK YOU for making me the prettiest bride on our wedding day. Rea exceeded my expectations and I'm really happy and grateful that I had her on my wedding. I am a bride based abroad and yes it's really difficult to choose suppliers for the wedding day. Just like any bride-to-be, I would want nothing but the best on my big day. And so I made sure that I will have the best HMUA that will help me look really stunning on my wedding day. So when the time came to choose for the HMUA, Rea Pinpin was the first makeup artist that appeared when I was browsing the internet. I checked out her website and read the entire previous brides testimonial and saw her works and I was truly amazed with her works. So I did my inquiry and she replied to my emails promptly. I didn’t even have my trial make-up with her because of my limited and busy schedule. So our big day came, I was kind of worried and stress out that morning due to the bad weather. It was raining so hard because of typhoon Nona. All the suppliers started coming, it was the first time I met her and she is super nice. She even asked me, do you have any preference for your make-up and I said “ikaw na po bhala.” And yes, she made me the prettiest bride that day. All our guests were telling me you look so pretty, who is your make-up artist? I really made the right choice of choosing her as my HMUA. My husband even told me after I walked down the aisle, “Napakaganda mo, Babe. Super natural ng make-up mo.” My HMU was amazingly beautiful on that very special day of my life. She's a very professional, down to earth, and kind-hearted person. You did a fantastic job, Rea! I will definitely contact you again in the future. Wishing you only the best in everything!!!
- Raisa Camille Manuel-Alejo
I'm so thankful that I follow my "gut feeling" to choose you as my makeup artist. >You are very accommodating even through emails. You are not just good on what you do but you also connect to your client well. Though we only met once but it feels you know me so well.You and your staff are amazing, despite the mishaps on my wedding day you were able to show the "bride’s glow" in me. My husband loves my makeup, he said I looked so happy. My friends who knew what happened that day told me that I look gorgeous and sophisticated "stress pa ako nun ha!" My husband and I were really satisfied with you. We really appreciate your hard work and dedication. You are pretty inside and out. Keep up the good work. May God continue to bless you and your staffs. We'll see you again soon when we visit home.
- Amor Balmes-Atienza
Hi miss Rea, I would like to express my deepest gratitude for making me feel extra beautiful during our wedding day. Thank you for going an extra mile. I definitely enjoy every single moment during our preparation because you made me feel that I am the most special woman that day. I really admire your prowess and gift in the art of make up artistry. I couldn’t imagine that I would have achieved that flawless and celebrity-like skin knowing how unruly my breakouts are. My family also enjoyed their make up and wishes to extend their appreciation. I hope to work with you again, who knows.. someday. Best regards Miss Rea and the rest of the team.
- Razzel Velasco-Villarico
Turning 18 is amongst the most beautiful things in life. Everything has to be perfect and extravagant. From venue design, the gown and most importantly, how you would look on that special day. Back when I was in New Zealand, I'm so much in stress searching for the right make-up artist. Thanks to my cousin, Noelli Padilla, she recommended Ms. Rea Pinpin to do my make-up. From my experience, Ms. Rea knows a lot about how to make you feel and look good. She works professionally and superb. She really know how to do her client's make-up 'peg'. I really want to say thank you for transforming me into a beautiful debutant. I hope you would inspire heaps of people through your make-up wonders. Again, thank you so much.

Hi Ms. Rea! First of all, I want to say thank you for your effort, time, help, and the wonderful service you have given me and my mom since my pre-debut photoshoot. It was indeed a pleasure working with you and your team. You guys are awesome! I know for sure that in the near future we will be able to work again. You are not only a brilliant make-up artist but such a wonderful person! Once I got my photos I'll send you a copy. Thank you again Ms. Rea!
- Abigail Relova
I can still remember my wedding day and I can't thank you enough for making me the blushing pretty bride on my special day. You and your team was as professional as ever, arriving early at the hotel and setting up as soon as possible. You and your team was easy to work with and has a friendly approach to everyone that makes the mood light even though it was a busy and chaotic day hehe. My mom, aunt, cousins and friends loved how you did their hair and make up coz' they really look and feel fab that day. And as a bride I can still remember how my family and friends gushed about how I look, so syempre I was very happy and kinikilig inside kasi pati si hubby eh have fallen in love with me the 2nd time around. Thanks again Ms. Rea and kudos to you and your team!!! Have a great year ahead and God bless.
- Kristle Joyce Pagaduan-Mercado
Hi Ms. Rea. I would just like to say that I’m very grateful that you were my make up artist during my prenup and wedding. I was very satisfied with my airbrush make up and the traditional make up for my dear moms during my dream wedding. No regrets that I've chosen you to be MUA. Should have also chosen your team to do the hair and make up for my entourage because they were not that happy with the MUA I got for them. I was stressed a week and even a day before those special days but you were able to make me gorgeous, especially during my big day. Appreciate a lot those reminders or pieces of advice during those times. You are such a thoughtful and understanding MUA. I'll be recommending you to my colleagues and friends. Thanks a lot. Cheers!!!
- Jenny Rose Bayaban-Liao
Thank you sooooo much Rea for making me feel and look beautiful on my prenup session and wedding day! For taking care of me and my entourage, for being so caring and thoughtful about all our needs and for going above and beyond what most hmua would do... our heartfelt and unending thanks! I love everything, from hair and make-up to my 2nd look during reception. Even when we got back to the hotel, my make-up still looked fresh!!! Seriously... how did you do that?! I didn't want to take it off para sleeping beauty ang peg. Hahaha. I'm still amazed up to now.
- Ellen Natividad-Gomez
Hi Rea. Thank you very much. Val said that was the makeup he’s been hoping to see on me, unlike all the trial makeups I did.. Hehe, Buti nalang daw I made the right choice kahit walang trial from you. =)
- Eunice Dykimching-Chung
Rea was one of the BESTEST suppliers I've got on our wedding. I've actually "invested" on her because I want to make sure to look beautiful and natural on my wedding day. Seeing some of her works and reviews, I booked her right away. During my prenup/trial make up, she applied just the right amount of makeup and made sure I would be beautiful on our shoot. On my wedding day, she made me a radiant bride I love everything she did on my makeup and hair too! Thank you Rea and your team, we all love our hair and makeup! You were indeed very talented, professional and lovable too Thanks also for the friendship. Love u!
- Ivy Simsuangco-Tavera
I’ve had the privilege to study makeup artistry with Miss Rea Pinpin as my instructor. Not only is she very knowledgeable about makeup application, she is also very willing to share her personal techniques acquired from her extensive experience with the industry. I always look forward to our sessions because they are always interesting and fun! Miss Rea is also very keen on details, a trait I plan to emulate as a budding makeup artist and she always makes sure that I get everything right. Our sessions are never like the typical teacher-student type. Miss Rea engages me with conversations and she encourages me to ask as many questions as possible, which, she very patiently answers. She is very easy to deal with and I love hearing her critique my work because she points out my shortcomings, with the assurance that I can always do better. I am so happy to have Miss Rea as my mentor—and I have her to thank, because she inspires me to pursue my dream of becoming a professional makeup artist.

Ms. Rea Pinpin is an expert bridal makeup artist. She is very “OC” when it comes to intricate details of her makeup application which I think is an asset that most brides are looking for in a makeup artist. She applies makeup as if it will be magnified a hundred times. Others call it HD makeup application but personally, I call it her way. On our wedding day, our photographers said that my makeup is very much “pulido” that they didn’t have to even worry about our flaws to show up on our photos. Wow! She made our face really camera ready. Thank you so much Ms. Rea! Truly, you’re one of the best makeup artist here in the Philippines!
- Anjella Tagle-Manaol
We all have our bucket list. Mine had a makeup class listed on it. And so when the opportunity came for me to learn it, I just had to go to the half-day weekend class. I am so glad that my makeup coach was a petite, charming chinita - Ms. Rea Pinpin, who was very generous in sharing her knowledge and time with us. Ms. Rea was candid and gracious to share her expertise and answer our questions - all of it! It became a fun-filled day of learning for me. Yes, I gave up weekend time for this activity - a precious time usually spent with my hubby and two children but I must say, after listening and meeting my makeup coach - it was worth it! The best part of the tutorial class aside from really learning personal makeup for my personal joy, it was gaining the confidence and sharing the feeling of stepping out a room with women who feel more empowered and carefree than the time we stepped inside the class. It was and will be a memorable day for me and Ms. Rea Pinpin will be forever part of this happy moment in my journey. Thanks Coach Rea!

Hi Rea, in behalf of my family we would like to thank you and your team for making us gorgeous with our hair and makeup during my daughter’s debut (Eunice) last May 27, 2013 at Edsa Shangri-La Hotel. Our previous experiences with the makeup artists were so disgusting. It was our first time to see ourselves really beautiful with makeup on. Our guests were so amazed with our looks that night and they said we looked like celebrities. You work so professionally and your service was really superb. It was all worth it. See you on our next family occasion. Thanks again and God bless!

Ms. Rea Pinpin,
Daniel and I would like to take the opportunity to thank you and your team for the wonderful service you provided for our wedding. It’s been a month now and we are still getting so many compliments for the make up and hair that your team did to us. Thank you so much for making me the most GORGEOUS Bride on that day. We are forever grateful that we got to know you and work with you. You truly are, as everyone has said ONE OF THE VERY BEST IN THE BUSINESS. It was an honor to be ONE of your clients and we will never hesitate to promote your work and your team. More power to you and your team!
- Jhoana Amores
Thank you so much Rea Pinpin and your team for making our special day more special because of your most professional service. Jhoana was the most beautiful bride to me ever. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much again. You truly are one of the best in the business.
- Daniel Amores
It's been a month since our WEDDING DAY and until now I can't find the right words to thank you enough for making me the most beautiful bride on that day. I’m such one lucky bride to have you, my "Fairy Godmother". Kahit naulanan, umiyak, pinagpawisan ako ng bongga, it’s as if I have the bridal package with unlimited retouch!! Everything is soooo magical with the help of you and your crew. I will definitely, surely and certainly recommend you to everyone Ms. Rea!! We will see each other SOON!! Much love!
- Justine Ragasa-Navarro
Finding the perfect look for the most special day of my life is one of the most important things to consider. As a bride, I want a makeup artist that would not only give me the best look for myself and my entourage but also someone that's easy to get along and transact with, and that’s exactly Rea. She's very professional and definitely an expert in her field. We first met during our prenup and it was a very good experience. She arrived on time, is very sweet, and accommodating. I gave her some pegs but also let her choose what best fits me. She totally nailed it! I really love the three looks she and her team did for me that day. On my wedding day, she did even better. I love how she enhanced my features and everyone just loved how beautiful I looked that day.
My entourage looked very lovely as well. Me and my whole family really enjoyed working with Rea. It's just like talking to a good friend while we're having our makeup done. During prep time, Rea made me feel at ease and even though a lot of things were happening I just know for a fact that I don’t need to worry about my hair and makeup.
Thank you Rea for the wonderful job you and your team did. It made our wedding extra special especially after seeing the videos and pictures. It was just awesome! More power to you and may you continue to make more brides happy and beautiful on their wedding day.
- Aileen Garcia-Chui
I'm really grateful that my friend/officemate Aileen recommended you to be my make-up artist. Even without heavy eye makeup, and though I was not in the best of health during my wedding, you had transformed my eyes into having a lively stare. I sooo loved the eyebrows and the natural look you did on my face. Your bubbly and friendly aura makes your client comfortable to you. You are a good listener, down to earth "gorgeous" person that could easily adjust the make-up according to the client's liking. I would strongly recommend you and your team to other brides to be. You have perfectly applied on me the simple but elegant, comfortable and fresh look that I want to achieve on my wedding day. Thank you and kudos to you and your team! God bless!
- Arlene Geng-Alonzo
We had a hard time choosing a makeup artist for our wedding and prenup. This is one of the most crucial suppliers for a bride, and I was pretty nervous about it. There are a lot of makeup artists out there and I'm glad I chanced upon Rea. She did my makeup for our engagement session and the wedding day.
Choosing Rea as my makeup artist for our wedding was one of the best decisions we have made. She made me look and feel beautiful, and went above and beyond the call of duty. She knows how to make you look your best before, during, and after the wedding. She even gave lots of helpful tips how to bring out the natural glow: what to eat, what to do, and not to do months, weeks, and days before the wedding.
Now I consider Rea not only as my makeup artist but also as a friend. We have established a very good working relationship and I will always keep coming back to Rea to make me look my best.
Best decision ever!
- Lorrie Cablasa-De Jesus
I thoroughly enjoyed capturing Rea's artistry through the lens as much as I did working with her on a project. Her creativity and precision was strongly reflected by how she was able to transform her model. Her imaginative energy and inputs made our collaboration very synergistic! I would love to work with her again!
- Karen Versoza
..can't thank you and your team enough for being a part of one of the most important events in my life and Don's as well. I was so happy that you made me feel glamorous and amazingly radiant on that moment. I felt it flaunted everything in me.. :-) I found it difficult to look for someone who will be all ears to what I really wanted until I had my hair and makeup trial with you. The hair and makeup was exactly what I had hoped for.. absolutely gorgeous!!! :-) Specifically on the day of my wedding, the silicone-based airbrush makeup you applied literally lasted the whole day. Everyone just loved it! Being an airbrush makeup artist is indeed your craft. Once again, thank you for making my day extra special, dear. :-) love love!!
- Nica Lomibao-Campita
She is very approachable and easy to work with. When you send her a message she will reply as soon as she can. She knows her craft very well, kahit hindi mo sabihin alam niya kung anong bagay at magandang make-up at hair style for you. What I really like about her style is enhancing not changing, because there are some make-up artists that will change the way you look, yung tipong kahit ikaw hindi mo na makikilala yung sarili mo after.
She will make sure that you will look your best on your special day. Thank you Ms. Rea for making every bride look at their best on their wedding day! Keep your magical hands burning.
- Harzelle Vitug-Cariaga
If there is one word to describe Rea as a makeup artist, it would be "Ease". There's ease in the way she relates to her clients and ease in the way she applies makeup to make you feel even more beautiful than you already are. Anybody can apply makeup but not with the same ease as in the hands of Rea. She’s definitely a professional hair and makeup artist that can transform anyone from simple to fabulous! Hope to work with you again soon!
- Patricia Feliciano
I had a lot of dissatisfaction with my face even before I had my makeup done by Ms. Rea Pinpin. I was nervous about how I'd look and whether she would do it the way I wanted it to be. But I trusted her that she could do it very well. She was very friendly the moment we met and she was very open about my suggestions about how I wanted my look to be. I wanted to keep it natural, yet glamorous and Ms. Rea Pinpin succeeded on doing that. She is very professional and she knows what she is doing. I should say, that it was the best look I've had in my life and I was very satisfied with my look. I also had my makeup done together with my friend and Ms. Rea also did her makeup. Both of us went into our prom carrying confidence and no worries about how we look. She definitely got skills and made my night. She made me feel beautiful for once in my life. Without a doubt, she’s certainly one of the top makeup artist in the Philippines! I will definitely go to Ms. Rea Pinpin for another service!
- Davina Chen
Miss Rea thank you for making me look and feel beautiful on my wedding day! My make up stayed all day and night even with tears :) #waterproofmakeup. You are indeed a professional airbrush makeup artist:) I'lL never forget how friendly and sweet you are :) Thank you soooooo much! More blessings.
- Cheryl Elejorde-Hibaler
I am so happy and very pleased with Rea's makeup and styling. She made it possible for me to feel the absolute prettiest I have I ever felt. Everyone was raving about my makeup and had to take a double look. She's also not only very talented, but the nicest to be around with. I am holding on to her contact details for any future events that may need me to be all dolled up. Thanks again Rea for making me look so pretty on that day.
- Nette Guevara-Parkes
I would like to thank Rea and her team for making me and my entire entourage look perfect on our special day. I could not have imagined it to be any better. My make up was very light and natural, like what I wanted it to be. Not only did Rea made me feel the most gorgeous I have ever felt, but she kept me calm the whole time. Some of the traits that I like the most about Rea is her kind approach, listening to 'brides' worries, and professionalism. I always look back at our prenup and wedding photos with a big smile on my face. Rea really is a good artist and I would have no hesitations of recommending her to future brides! From a very happy and satisfied client.

I’m the kind of bride who doesn't know anything about make-up. That’s why when it comes to getting a hair and make-up artist, I was really clueless. I came across Ms. Rea because of the suggestion of my wedding coordinator. I emailed Ms. Rea and bombarded her with questions. After our conversation, thru email, I booked her right away. Why? She is simply so nice, accommodating, and replies right away :) Just thru our email exchange, I really felt that I’m going to be in good hands. The first time I met her was for my trial make-up. The first thing she asked me was what kind of look / makeup do I want. I just told her that I just want to be beautiful on my wedding day. So general, I know. And with that answer, she delivered. I really felt that she knows what she's doing and what is best for her bride. On our wedding day, her team was very professional and very fun to be with. Ms. Rea and her team made a nerve wracking day relaxed and homey feel.And to my surprise and happiness of course, my makeup on that day was even more beautiful. I should say that Ms. Rea really took care of me. For all the future brides out there, I assure you that you won't regret working with Ms. Rea and her team.

One major pressure to me during my pre-wedding stage is the question "how pretty will I look that day?". It was a great relief that I looked prettier, ten times than what I’ve expected. Thank you Rea for making that happen! Godbless you always dear!
- Kristine Baronda-Padillo
I felt comfortable with her since day 1. The ever reliable & friendly Rea Pinpin is very much approachable that is why we are very certain in choosing her for us as a couple & also for our girls. The real deal here is that she has the talent & the passion in doing her forte.
The BEST supplier I have had on our wedding day!
- Rachel Chua-Bantulod
Finding the right suppliers / partners for the wedding is critical - more so the HMUA. You need to find someone who is competent and talented but also someone that you can comfortably work with. Rea fit the job perfectly. She was warm and accommodating from the time I contacted her via FB until I thanked her after the wedding. It was easy to work with her and her team, they considered our requests and exceeded our expectations. I loved my make-up so much on my wedding day I didn't want to wash my face after! I'm so happy I made the decision to get Rea and her team! I'm proud to have been a #REAlizedbride.
- Denise Soller-Loseo
Dear Rea, I can’t thank you enough for making me look beautiful on my wedding day! You are truly a talented makeup artist, and I appreciate how you listened to my concerns throughout the process. Your team also did a great job and made my bridesmaids and moms look beautiful.
- Crystal Leung-Cheng
On my first time with Ms. Rea, I knew I was in good hands. I have never regretted going to her to do my makeup because she makes you feel like a movie star afterwards! I love your work Ms. Rea, thank you so much for the confidence boost you give me whenever I step out of your studio. You’re surely the best makeup artist I’ve ever known. :)
- Simone Tupa
I am thankful to have Rea Pinpin as part of our team of suppliers for our wedding. She definitely brings out the beauty in every bride and helps them look their very best on that special day. That is evident with the compliment that I received from friends and relatives on how fresh and natural my look was during the pre-nup photoshoot and of course on the wedding itself. Her dedication to her craft, positive attitude and professionalism do not only make her a great make-up artist but a wonderful person and friend as well. Thanks for all of the help and support Rea!
- Diana Hernandez-Louis
Mike and I are so thankful and blessed to have you and your team. Indeed, we made a right decision and very fortunate for us for choosing you to take care of us and my family on one of the most memorable event of our lives. My family especially my siblings are very much satisfied with your magic touch. Such a skillful hand and amazing imagination equals a true work of art. Truly, we will never forget you and we are looking forward on working with you again. Again, thank you, best wishes and congrats to you and your team.

It was great working with you Ms. Rea. My make up was totally perfect.Thank you so much for making me feel beautiful on our special day. You're such an amazing and gorgeous makeup artist.
- Princess Garcia-Rufino
Thank you so much for doing my beautiful and natural looking make up, Rea. My makeup was just perfect. You were just so calm, relaxed, professional, and confident that day that it made me feel confident as well and ensured me that everything would turn out alright. Having the ceremony at the beach under the scorching hot sun was my biggest worry because I thought it would ruin my makeup but it didn't. I even cried at the reception but it didn't leave a single mark on my face. Everything was worth it. I can't thank you enough. I am so grateful that I had you as my makeup artist on our big day.
- Rianne Santiago-Damasin
Ms. Rea!!!! Happy new year! I haven't thanked you enough for the great job you did last dec 27. I really appreciated your work. You made me feel beautiful and confident with myself. I also want to thank you for making me feel relaxed and calm few hours before the wedding. It really helped. I will surely recommend you to future brides I know. Thank you again and more blessings!!!
- Joyce Encio-Cabonce
Thank you Rea from the bottom of my heart for making me beautiful on our big day. Even before I entered the church and start with my bridal march, nandun ka at my side. It was so unexpected na you'll be hands-on sa lahat. Again, thank you so much. I’m so happy that I made the right decision in picking you and I felt na sobrang blessed ako that I met you.
- Maricar Geminiano-Balicudiong
Thank you for making me beautiful the whole day of my wedding (even without trial make-up before hand). Your whole team took your time and were very meticulous with your work. I together with my entourage are highly satisfied with your service!

Choosing Rea as our make up artist made me more confident and beautiful on my wedding day. But not only me, my groom appreciated his looks especially on our reception. We both became more lovely and blooming on our special day because of you, Rea and we thank you for that! Definitely, we'll recommend you to our friends and relatives since you really took care of us from the first day of our meeting until our big day. Two thumbs up for you and your team!!

Rea has the power to create sheer magic. With a few strokes of her brush, she can transform anyone and give her the best look she can ever have. Thank you Rea for giving me exactly what I have expected during my special day.
- Mylaine Galamgam-Escober
Ms. Rea showed great expertise and professionalism. It was such a pleasure working with her, from the day of my photo shoot until my actual debut. It was like bonding time with a friend, comfortable and fun. The results are IMPECCABLE, I felt like a real movie star. Thank you so much Ms. Rea for making me look absolutely perfect on one of the most important events in my life.
- Danielle Cortez
I had a pleasant experience working with Ms. Rea from my pre-debut shoot up until my big day. She truly is a professional. I admire her talent with bringing out her client's natural beauty, and I'd definitely love to work with Ms. Rea again as soon as I get another opportunity. Thank you for making me the most beautiful princess that day.
- Daniella Cortez
I would like to commend Ms. Rea for her great works on my special day. Everyone was all praises on me and told me that I really looked stunningly beautiful that day. Thanks also to my sister for recommending you to me. Even if we only met twice, I knew that you are really a great person, so beautiful inside and out. You are so sweet, down-to-earth, very professional and talented make-up artist. I remember, tinuruan mo pa kami ng maid of honor ko kung paano ma-achieve ang magandang kilay! haha. I will forever be grateful to you Ms. Rea and will surely recommend you to all the future brides I know. Again, thank you and I am always praying for your continued success. God bless!
- Phyllis Hazel Onod-Muñoz
Hi Rea. It was indeed a great pleasure knowing you and having you as my makeup artist. Looking for HMUA was actually one of the hardest part of my wedding preparation. When I was browsing through internet and checked your portfolio, I knew it that you were the one I wanted to entrust my look on my big day, coming from someone like me who is not a fan of makeup. You never disappointed me. You even surpassed my expectations. I never thought that I would look such a beautiful bride on my wedding day. I wanna say thank you for all the support. You are the best!
- May Evangelista-Halili
A million thanks to My Bridal Beauty Fairy, Ms. Rea Pinpin, for being a part and for making my wedding the most MAGICAL DAY. You are Truly Incredible, Amazing and Super Talented make up artist. The Kindest, Lovely and Super Down to Earth person I've ever met. I had no idea what to expect on my wedding day as I NEVER wear make up at all but you made me even more Beautiful and so Stunning from day one (pre-nup pictorial) up to my Big Day. I am so honored and blessed to have you as my make up artist. I definitely won't hesitate in recommending you to all my friends and family wholeheartedly! Hope to work with you again. More power and God bless!
- Iyah Quintana-Almendral
My wedding was a rushed one... Just imagine my stress level during that time. I think, I started searching for my official MUA a month before my wedding. I searched on Facebook and I was blessed that Rea is on my friend's list. I took time to inquire about her prices and she responded quickly. She adjusts on the bride's preferences and availability... and she's so easy going. One time, I was having a hard time looking for some suppliers and she right away replied. She's very helpful and she's not just a MUA but she stands like a friend who is just there when I needed her during difficult time (preps for the wedding... Arggh). She understands how a bride feels before, during, and after the wedding. I believe she really love what she's doing. Being a Make-up artist, as well as helping brides and everybody look beautiful on their special day are Rea's passion. I am just so thankful that I chose her and her team. Their hands made me, my husband, and my family look stunning during my wedding. Two thumbs up for you for a job well done, Rea!
- Leigha Alday-Santos
I know this comes a little late, but I'm finally getting back to reality. I just want to say thank you so much Rea and your whole team for making me feel like a beautiful bride on our wedding day! It was great and stayed perfect all day. Thanks for being such a professional, it felt like I was hanging around with a girlfriend rather than hiring a make up artist! Thank you!
- Jeniefer Araojo-Evangelista
Ms. Rea is indeed a professional airbrush makeup artist. I liked my makeup starting from the prenup up to my wedding day because it's really beautiful, very fine, and looks very natural. Her make-up lasts long and gives fresh look even after the photoshoot and my wedding. Also, one of my friends mentioned that she also wants Ms. Rea to be her makeup artist on her wedding day and that only proves that Ms. Rea is really excellent and shows expertise in her career.
- Katrina Francisco-Lanuza
Ms. Rea, I'd like to thank you so much again. I felt so beautiful yesterday in our wedding making the heat bearable and unnoticeable! Never seen my fiancé compliment me so much on my makeup. The makeup lasted all night! Sadly, I didn't want to take it off. Again, thank you thank you for being so sweet as well. Excited to work with you again!.
You really do magic! : )
- Cheska Manaois-Lopez
Hi Rea, thank you once again for all your amazing work on our wedding. You are truly incredible artist and individual. I felt so beautiful, received so many compliments, and really felt the same way when I looked at my mom, in laws, and my entourage as well. You made all the women so stunning, and it was breathtaking to look at them with such a glow. I was so happy whenever I caught a glimpse of them throughout the day. You didn’t just make me feel gorgeous but you also kept me calm. The way you did my make-up was exactly how I wanted it to be. Your team is very friendly and fun to work with. I will absolutely recommend you to my friends. I am beyond honored and so blessed to have you dear.
- Jessie Ramos-Villanueva
The very first time I met Ms. Rea, she was very warm and accommodating. She easily got my trust and I knew that moment she'll turn me into the most beautiful bride I can be on my very special day.
Since I live in Sydney, she sent me messages every now and then like simple reminders, and of course, not to stress myself too much. She was very motivating and boosting my self-confidence. Hindi lang make up artist, adviser pa.
On my wedding day, she showed up with her team glamorously. Though it was very busy, she was by my side and making me calm, covering me from all things that may put stress on me. When everything was done, after she did her work, I was like, "I look like a movie star!" I look so beautiful. She followed what I said not too much, just want to look natural and glowing. I am so happy. My groom was so stunned. I got lots of compliments even up to now. I highly recommend her to all future brides.
- Rizza Javellana-Evangelista
As my then hubby to be is based abroad, searching for best suppliers alone was the hardest. Been hunting suppliers during wedding expos but didn’t find what I was looking for. Then, my sister suggested Rea Pinpin for my HMUA. Saw her portfolios and...WOW! The only thing I was able to say is that, not all best wedding suppliers are found in expo.
Thumbs up for her professionalism. Punctuality ☑.They arrive almost 1 hr ahead of the call time. Good service ☑. She’s not just my artist but she became my adviser before and during the event. Plus, not all wedding suppliers like Rea sent an after service message.
To Rea and team, thank you for making me stunning, praises overflowed that day, even I was speechless. My freckles disappeared, my eyes ohh the eyes, it’s fierce and sweet at the same time. Narcissm strikes and I told myself after the event “parang ayoko na maligo”. Haha ;-)) Rea, thank you! I’m proud to be one of your gorgeous brides. Keep up the good work, continue transforming brides, and continue creating their dream bridal look.
