About WAKE UP TO MAKE UP
Ellis Faas, named by French Vogue “One of the most influential make-up artists of her time”, has indeed worked with world’s most famous designers, photographers and models. Her very original and distinct make-up creations appeared on catwalks and covers of well-known international fashion magazines.
Not known to many, Faas has started her creative career as a photographer, inspired by portrait-, fashion-, and documentary artists such as Serge Lutens and Guy Bourdin. She started by photographing herself, completely transformed by her own make-up.
She believes in the ‘marriage’ of photography and make-up. Her photos are raw and show a great love of color. By using humour and style Ellis plays with the ‘rules’ of the beauty industry.
