Oh My Ofra!

If you’ve ever been to a beauty school, you’ve probably heard of Ofra cosmetics. If you’ve ever been to a beauty show, you’ve probably heard of Ofra cosmetics. If you’ve ever used makeup at all, you probably used Ofra cosmetics.
Ofra cosmetics is a line that is dedicated to creating high quality cosmetic products for professionals.
They also make products for different companies, so chances are that you have had used Ofra products but did not even know it.
I had the amazing honor of meeting the owner Ofra. Her and Carine came to one of our campuses to do a demonstration and talk about the amazing products.
.

They are both charming and knowledgeable. It was a great pleasure of mine to meet them.
I’ve been lucky to work with Ofra products since I started working at my campus three years ago. I’ve loved them since. Ofra cosmetics is now coming out with so many new and exciting products.
I was very blessed to receive three of their products to review for you.

I have nothing negative to say.

They are amazing. If I love them, you will too.

So let’s get started.
Our first product is RCK (Red Carpet Kolour) Body Glow.
Can you say red carpet ready?
Many celebrities like Jessica Simpson and Denise Richards have used this product.
It gives your skin a beautiful glow. Your skin look bright and blemish free. When you’re done, it simply washes off.
Our second product and personally my favorite is… The Triple Black Eyeliner.
Ok, I have a testimonial for you guys and dolls.

I have teary eyes. Every eyeliner I’ve used runs… it cannot fight with my tears. There are only two eyeliners that have succeeded and THIS is one of them. By far, this one is my favorite because I can use it for both top and bottom eyeliner and it’s so dark.

The third and final product is my favorite of the three the Bright Addiction Palette.
If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter, I’m sure you’ve seen me several photos of different eye looks I’ve done these past few weeks.

These looks have been created with this amazing palette. I have never used an eye shadow palette with such bright colors that actually stay true to color. What you see is truly what you get! The pigmentation in the eye shadows is also great.. I don’t even use a primer.
In conclusion, I can tell you that I’ve fallen in love with Ofra Cosmetics. These three products are just the ones that I was able to try from home. When they came to give the demonstration at work, I was able to try all their products and I will say…I’m a believer.
Check out Ofra Cosmetics… you won’t regret it.

Classic Eye with a Twist!

I’m not your typical makeup artist. I like to play with color and twist looks and combine things and come up with new ones.
That said, I’m not going to do your normal Classic Eye (an eye makeup that starts from the tear duct with light colors, fading into dark colors towards the end)….noooo I’m going to put a twist on it!
I’m going to do a BACKWARDS classic (an eye makeup that starts from the tear duct with dark colors and fades into lighter colors towards the end).
AMAZING!
This look is a great way to do something different without going too dramatic.
Also, this is ideal for people that have their eyes far apart. By applying the darker color at the start of the eye, it gives the illusion that the eyes are closer together.

You can create this look with any color(s) you desire. From the ever safe brown family to the fun & sexy turquoise, just let your imagination run wild and see what comes up!

This palette is amazing! The colors are super pigmented and their staying power is awesome!
Needless to say, I had so much fun creating this look. What do you think????

Well, beauty addicts…thank you again for checking out my blog!
Have a question, suggestion, or concern? Leave a comment!

Lots of fun makeup looks and product reviews.
Here is the tutorial for the look!

Have a beautiful day!
