I LOVE when brands collaborate with professional makeup artists; especially when those artists have an incredible body of work that laced the covers of international magazines, celebrities, designer campaigns and the works.
Ofra Cosmetics teamed up with ‘the one and only’ Francesca Tolot to bring a capsule collection which not only embodies Francesca’s style but gives makeup lovers the opportunity to really tap into their creative side…

WHO IS FRANCESCA TOLOT
Originally from Italy with a fine-arts background, Francesca had already made a name for herself in Europe working on powerhouse editorials for the likes of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, before moving to Los Angeles and landing her first major job with none other than Madonna herself.
The rest, as they say, is history and her impeccable yet unique style made her one of the most sought after makeup artists in a very short amount of time.
She’s renowned for her work with pretty much every singer, actress, supermodel, fashion magazine, designer campaign you can imagine .
Think…Beyonce, Naomi Campbell, Jennifer Lopez, Janet Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor, Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Valentino, Mercedes Benz…just to name a few. You have to see the incredible timeline of Francesca’s work for yourself HERE
For makeup (and Francesca) fans like me, her incredible book One Woman 100 Faces is a must. It exhibits a collection of her work over 20 years of her career and it’s a visual feast to say the least.
THE OFRA x FRANCESCA TOLOT COLLECTION
As I mentioned in the beginning of my post, I really appreciate brands teaming up with professional makeup artists.
It’s not that I don’t stand behind influencer collaborations; I feel there’s always a piece of the beauty-pie for everyone, but professional artists come with the experience and expertise to only put their name on products that are above and beyond – both in terms of quality/performance and variety.
Ofra x Francesca Tolot collab is no exception. With carefully curated colors, the pieces in this collection are a true testament to Francesca’s creative flair filled with inspiration.
The collection features a 9-pan eyeshadow palette, a bronzer/blush palette, 3 liquid lipsticks and a special edition gold liquid lipstick.

The Infinite Eyeshadow Palette ($49) is definitely not your average ‘neutrals-with-a-pop-of-color’. In fact, it’s so fun and playful, it immediately gets your mind ticking as to how you can pair up the colors and the different looks you can create.
It contains pretty much every finish you can think of from matte, to satin to duo-chrome. With this palette (and just as its name suggests), you’re only as limited as your imagination.

Gilded Palette ($49) is a stunning combination of two bronzers and two blushes.
With a buildable formula to suit all skin tones, you can create a perfectly sculpted face and add a shimmering hue of either peach or coral blush all in the one palette.

Ofra is renowned for their long wearing matte liquid lipstick formulas so it’s only fitting that Francesca created four universal lip colors to compliment this collection.
The more conventional colors, Vermillion – a classic red; Ruby – a deep berry; and Baroque – a classic pinkish nude with gold specks can either be purchased individually ($20each) or in a set of three ($50).
The metallic gold shade named Oro was a color specifically created for Beyonce on her OTR 2 Tour; and thanks to this collection, you can now get your hands on it too!
BONUS: Every order gets a mini version of Oro lipstick with purchase from the Francesca Tolot collection.

And of course, no collab post would be complete without a gallery of looks created with this collection, by none other than the incredible talent that is Francesca Tolot…
