Vogue Paris cited Ellis Faas as "one of the most influential make-up artists of her time". And indeed, she worked with the world's most pre-eminent fashion designers, photographers, stylists, hairdressers and models.
Ellis’ work has been published on the covers of the world’s best-known fashion magazines. Ellis worked for make-up brands like Clinique, Lancôme and MAC Cosmetics – and she was asked by L'Oréal to create a make-up line for their skin care brand, Biotherm.
After her contract with L’Oréal ended in 2007, the way was paved for her to create her own brand: ELLIS FAAS.
