OFRA Team Lip Art Challenge

    This past Friday Mariel & Melanie, with assistance from Kate behind the camera, did a Facebook Live stream doing a lip art challenge inspired by Halloween, followed by an awesome giveaway. Both have an art background and while thinking this would be a piece of cake, it quickly became a challenge, but fun to say the least.

Fast and Flawless: Back to School Makeup Routine

  Fast and Flawless: Back to School Makeup Routine   Going back to school is either one of two things for students: dreaded or exciting.  Getting back into the routine of getting up early and sitting in class all day can be pretty torturous, and the best way to combat the monotony of a school routine is to create a routine that makes you want to pop right out of bed in the morning.  That...

Modernizing Swingin’ 60s Mod Makeup for Summer

The sixties were a revolutionary time, especially when it came to makeup.  Due to this period of experimentation, the sixties were filled with some of the most intriguing makeup looks of the twentieth century.  After years of fairly bland, manicured makeup that consisted of thin brows, powdered faces, and red lips, the sixties widened the world of makeup by adding pops of color and graphic design into the mix.  There were the good looks of...
