Ellis Faas “Only tested on supermodels” and not on animals. There she got me! It is really so 2015 to test on animals 🙂 Just try it on supermodels. Deal?
A few months after that I got an option to be on the Ellis Faas campaign and when I was confirmed I was very happy. Ellis Faas and Thijs Faas are family and a perfect working team (with a great working team behind them). But my first question was: “For how long have you guys been together?” and they answered laughing “We are brother and sister”. It was great to work with Ellis Faas and saw every puzzle falling on its place. Ellis is a strong woman and doesnt sell “bullshit” 😉
You know the fairytale stories from designers and make up artists that they went to a random country in nature and explorered their fragrance over there etc? With Ellis Faas it is real. She is flying all over the world and most of the time to Italy where the makeup is made, searching for the best, and probably on a high intuiton. Her make up is based on nature colors from the skin and earth colors and that’s exactly what you get…The foundation is your second skin during the day ánd gives a good layer. The lipsticks you can use as a real thick lipstick or bring it light to your lips, wrap it around a bit and it looks like its your own colour!
Now Ellis Faas’ new make up holder is out. It’s very handy. You can put all your favorite Ellis Faas pistols make up in a silver holder with mirror an ànd matting powder. Bye make up bags! Hi all your make up in one holder. Magic!
I would recommend actually every blush or lipstick. Because you can also make the blush your lipstick or eyeshadow and the other way around. But my favorite is still the bloody red. This week I tried to open something with my mouth and it bled. First thought: “Hey! Ellis Faas colour!” Haha!
And always fun working with makeup artists that work with the make up from Ellis Faas (Judith van Dongen):

It’s clear I’m obsessed. When I lost my foundation I tried to ask everyone where it was, trying to not make it sound shallow. Haha so funny!
Ellis you are amazing. Thank you for showing me you and nothing else but Ellis Faas in the future 😉
Have a lovely day, see you soon! x Shona Lee
