Who is Francesca Tolot? She’s only one of the most sought out professional makeup artists in Hollywood! You may even call her a Master Makeup Artist. Francesca’s work has been seen all over TV and in print for decades. She is known for creating electrifying looks for performers such as Beyonce, Cher, Madonna and models such as Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss and Tyra Banks - and this is just scratching the surface of her impressive clientele list.
Little would I know that dancing around to my favorite Beyonce music videos- Crazy in Love, Ring the Alarm, Party to name a few- as a kid and as an adult (let’s be real!) would come full circle to now being a part of the first-ever OFRA Cosmetics collaboration with a professional celebrity MUA . This collection is here to break boundaries and inspire the everyday makeup lover and the pros in experimenting with makeup and trying new things. Francescas secret: there are no rules, no right techniques. Makeup is art. Her inspiration? Growing up in Italy, traveling the world and her love for art.
Her inspiration translates into this new collection which includes the Gilded Palette (face) and the Infinite Palette (eyes) which include two bronzers, two new liquid-to-baked sheen blushes, and nine all-new eyeshadows to create endless eye looks. Of course, you know we had to include three new lippies for you as well, the Infinite Lip Set which has been sneak peeked throughout the last few weeks on our live streams. One of which we just released on our Instagram named Vermillion (see below)!
It’s no secret OFRA has a history in the Pro MUA world (we are the number one beauty kit supplier to beauty schools across the USA!) and has made the crossover into social media fandom with a cult-like following and the support of influencers like NikkieTutorials. OFRAXFrancesa Tolot wants to blend the two together, with a collection that speaks to the mixing of creativity, art, glamour, and the idea that makeup is for all; this is the #Muxeffect
OFRAXFrancesca Tolot collection will be launching next week, January 11, 2019 at IMATS in Los Angeles. We will be co-hosting the welcome reception Saturday morning and Francesca will be on the main stage for her class "Francesca Tolot: Master of Color " that Saturday so if you will be there, definitely stop by and be the first to snag this collection!
Stay tuned to our social media (and Francesca’s) for more sneak peeks and shade reveals throughout the week leading up to IMATS. Today we reveal her third eyeshadow shade on Instagram and touch on the face palette on Facebook LIVE with an exclusive first look. Hope you all are as excited as we are!
