My 1st time hearing about Ofra Cosmetics was at The Makeup Show Orlando in 2012. I remember seeing Ofra giving a presentation as I walked by. I intended to go by their booth, but for whatever reason, I just never got back around to doing it. Fast forward to this year at The Makeup Show New York. While working with AJ Crimson, I got the opportunity to meet the owners David and his wife Ofra. They are wonderful people. Super friendly and they love meeting makeup artists. I was amazed at how many products they had and couldn’t believe I’d never heard of them before. They have skin care, tools, education materials, and of course lots of makeup. To learn more about Ofra go to ofracosmetics.com. I’m going to do a series highlighting some of my favorite Ofra Products so stay tuned.
In this post, I’m going to show you my Face Of The Day (FOTD) featuring Ofra cosmetics and Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. I’ll walk you through how I completed the look.
First I primed my skin with the Ofra Primer I decided to do my face first so I could test out my new Elf shadow/mascara shield. Here’s what I used on my face below. I applied the Cover Girl Queen Collection 3 n 1 Foundation except under my eye area. I used my Black Opal Foundation stick under my eyes as concealer and set it with Ben Nye Banana Powder. I also used these two products down the middle of my nose and middle of forehead as highlights.
Then I went to my eyes. These are the products I used
I used the Maybelline clear mascara on my brows to shape them and hold them in place. It’s a great alternative to MAC’s brow set. Elf has a good dupe as well. Next I used the Black Opal Foundation Stick to clean up my brows. Then I applied the Ofra Eye Primer Gel from my lash line to brow bone. Afterwards I began to apply the Naked 3 Shadows, the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Perversion, Rimmel Mascara and beauty supply lashes. See below for the steps I took I used Darkside in my crease Next I blended limit right above my crease as my transition color. Next step was adding Strange as my brow highlight For my Lid, I used Dust. This color has quite a bit of shimmer and has big specks of color so I used my Elf Shadow/Mascara shield to reduce fall out. Here’s what my eyes look like so far. There was still some fall out, but a lot less than if I wouldn’t have used the shield. Next I added Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner Pencil in Perversion as well as Rimmel Volume Flash MascaraNext step was lips. I used Ofra Purple Haze lipstick I added #43 false lashes Here’s the finished look!
So, I’m absolutely in love with Ofra Cosmetics. I’ve enjoyed using everything I have from them so far. I also really like the Naked 3 palette. I can definitely see myself using this one more than the 1st on. I honestly forgot that I had the 1st one until people started talking about the 3rd installment of the palette. LOL!
