Woomen - Redefining Beauty

Our Mission

Our company began in November 2016 when a group of women sat down to think of ways to Win Others Over – the reason we are called WOOmen. We want to help other women stand out in the crowd and rise above the challenges of modern life. One way of doing this is by giving our members the confidence they need to overcome any situation. We connect them to cosmeticians who can educate them and improve their appearance. Armed with knowledge and their new looks, these women are ready for anything! We also created this site to highlight the fashion and beauty services of various hair and make-up artists. Our primary goal is to raise the profile of cosmetic artisans in the Philippines. To achieve this, we empower aspiring and professional make-up designers and beauty enthusiasts by providing them with opportunities to enhance their respective careers.
