I wanted to take a moment to formally share my condolences on the recent unexpected passing of Ellis Faas, at the age of 58.
The Dutch makeup artist built ELLIS FAAS Cosmetics in Amsterdam, while raising her daughter Flavia as a single mom.
Beyond the founder of her brand, this marked a goodbye to an extremely creative woman that worked with famed photographer Mario Testino and on Chanel and Fendi runway shows with Karl Lagerfeld. Vogue Paris once stated that she was “one of the most influential makeup artists of her generation”.
Ellis Faas will remain an inspiration to so many, including myself, and may she rest in peace.
