Reoccurring and Returning Trends + Beauty Expert Tips
Red Lips: You can’t go wrong with a classic red lip. A strong pigmented red is always in style.
“Bright red lips are bigger than ever. The key is to keep the color a true primary red and to experiment with finishes, from satin to matte to a lacquered shine.” – Sonia Kashuk, MUA & founder of Sonia Kashuk Beauty
With OFRA’s Lip Gloss Stick, it’s easy to transform any matte liquid lipstick into a smooth satin finish or turn it into an ultra-glossy look, depending on your application!
Bangin’ Brows: Defined eyebrows are still in style but have taken a softer approach this season with a more natural, brushed up brow. Take Cara Delevingne, whose eyebrows are always on point!

If you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet, there’s still time to catch up on the trend and learn how to fill in those brows! Search our brow products here for all your eyebrow necessities.
The Natural Look: After a season of high contouring, many OFRA beauties are reverting back to a more natural look, keeping their faces fresh, lightweight and with an emphasis on the lips or eyes. Try the tight-lining technique for a barely there eyeliner, giving your eyes a fuller and darker appearance along the lashes.

“Glowing skin is back in, and blush is making a comeback.” – Tim Quinn, celebrity MUA for Giorgio Armani
What the ‘90s Taught Me: How can we forget the era that introduced us to the lip’s dark side? Deep browns, reds and plums are still in style and here to stay! Our inspo - think Cindy Crawford and Selena Quintanilla.

“Lipstick is about dedication- you start off a day or night like,“I’m going to be responsible for it. I’m going to be checking on it.” – Staz Lindes, Model
White Eyeliner: What was once a thing of the past has returned to the catwalk this season! Using a white liner will accentuate your eyes and make them appear bigger, brighter and youthful. Pair with a bold red lip like OFRA’s “Atlantic City” to finish off a glam look or keep it soft and fresh with “Cocos Island” for a subtle no makeup, makeup look.
Tip: Try the light-lining technique – pick a white or light shade eyeliner that is pearlescent and trace along the water line of your eyes. The formula will neutralize redness and reflect light while making your eyes appear bigger, brighter and more beautiful.
