Position : Hair & Makeup Artist

Languages : English, Tagalog

Beauty Background : I’ve been in the industry for about 14 years. I started in the wedding industry as a small freelance artist. I then joined Anastasia Beverly Hills as a makeup artist where I eventually grew in business and field management. Now, I work full-time as an Account Executive for Charlotte Tilbury, overlooking the Sales, Education and Artistry Training for 3 major retailers between 7 states in the East/Mid-Atlantic territory.

Career Highlight : The most proud moments in my career is when I see people’s development and growth. I’ve hired, managed and developed the artistry for countless artists who have grown tremendously over the years. Now, they work as field trainers or managers for cosmetic brands, own their own makeup line, own and teach at makeup academies, while others have built successful bridal businesses. In my current company, I also play a role in the development of other Executives, Coordinators, Managers and Beauty Advisors in North America.

Current favorite bridal trends : Hollywood waves, glowing skin and neutral tones! Soft, romantic looks are my fave!

Top three products/tools I can’t live without : A 1 inch curling iron, RCMA Foundation Palette (KJB Edition) and Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray! So. Good.

Guilty pleasures : Gay shows! Thai or Filipino Boys Love Series 


I believe the purest form of beauty is when you can appreciate yourself.

XOXO richard

Confidence radiates a natural beauty that cannot be diluted.

Professional, high end, experienced, and client-focused! He spent extra time on my trial look and even re-did my hair because after spending time chatting with me and doing my makeup he felt another style would suit me better. On the wedding day he arrived right on time and was a joy to have in the bridal suite. My hair and makeup looked great all night and even survived a few costume changes. I cannot recommend Caitlyn, Richard, or her team enough! Worth every penny to have zero stress about your hair and makeup.

“What I have to say about Richard:

xoxo Kate

His talent and personality are both outstanding! His calm and kind demeanor was simply a delight to have around on the day. He made me feel pampered and taken care of during the whole day. I had a vision of what I wanted to look like on my wedding day and he executed it perfectly. My makeup was flawless and I couldn't have loved it more.

“Richard was a joy on my wedding day.”

xoxo grace

You can tell he puts in a lot of effort into making your wedding day a dream come true!

“Not only is Richard talented and creative, he is also very passionate and professional with his work.”

xoxo joanne

His make-up accentuated my best features and complemented my dress so well. My hair was styled exactly how I wanted it, and it stayed all night! He’s truly talented!! 

“Richard was easy to work with and offered great suggestions.”

xoxo jen

My makeup was flawless; I absolutely loved my look. He is also quite knowledgeable of products and gave me tips along the way. He is absolutely amazing at what he does, his sweet and funny personality is an added bonus!

“Richard knew exactly the look I was going for.”

xoxo jackie

Due to an emergency, he stepped in to do my hair and makeup, as well as my mother’s makeup, only two days before the wedding and totally saved the day. He was very courteous and attentive to detail. I had 1940’s glam pin curls for my wedding day and every curl stayed perfectly in place all night despite my wild dancing. My makeup was subtle and natural but stunning. He took great care to make sure I felt beautiful and well taken care of which really helped set the tone for the rest of the day.

“Richard was so lovely to work with.”
