So, it goes without saying that he’s a pro when it comes to celebrity glamour and strikingly beautiful makeup looks. Check out this gallery to refresh your memory about what we’re talking about:



His signature look features glowing, dewy, lit-from-within skin with bushy, untamed brows. Call us picky, but these days, there’s nothing we love more than the glowing skin trend. So if you're curious on how to nail this kind of look, here, Robbie speaks candidly about his favorite makeup and skincare techniques, plus what it’s like to be the go-to of none other than THE Anne Curtis.



Metro.Style: When was the first time you worked with Anne?

Robbie Pinera: It started in 2008, I met her for a clothing campaign shoot for Freeway


MS: How has your friendship evolved through the years?

RP: It started when she was constantly requesting me to do her makeup, one session after the other up until this day. So basically, we were always together for long hours and days. We got to bond, talk about different things in life, dreams and passions, and I got to know her deeply not only as a celebrity but as a real person.
