Absolutely Unique Makeup by Ellis Faas: Would You Give it A Try?

Lately everyone is talking about Ellis Faas so I wanted to check out this brand myself. And… I was really amazed by what I’ve found out. This is something that I’ve never seen before, it looks so futuristic and yet so easy to use. So what is so special about this brand and what makes it so unique? The fact that every products comes in a liquid form and is in a chic silver tube which goes into a silver holder. Sounds unbelievable, right?  So here is the photo so you can all see what I am talking about.

Who is Ellis Faas you may ask. And I’ve got the answer for your question!

Vogue Paris cited Ellis Faas as “one of the most influential make-up artists of her time”. And indeed, she has 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. Additionally, Ellis has worked for make-up brands, such as 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 the contract with L’Oréal ended in 2007, the way was paved for her to create her own brand: ELLIS FAAS. This will launch early 2009. You can read more here

How to Create Leighton Meester’s Look



For Meester’s flawless skin, touch up your blemishes with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer and smooth Smashbox.Photo Finish primer over your face for a red carpet ready glow. Top off with L’Oreal Paris Bare Naturale gentle mineral blush in Sugar. Plum for a nice sheer-tint.


Meester’s makeup artist gave her a smokey look with dark shadow on her eyelids and lighter shadow on the crease.Try Chantecaille Shine Eye Shadow Powder in Pyrite and Chantecaille Irridescent Eye Shade in Aqua. Apply the taupe to the crease and the blue to the lid, then apply M.A.C Eye Kohl eyeliner in Smolder to the inner lid and finish off with Dior DiorShow Mascara in Black, for that wide-eyed diva effect.


Sheer pinks work well with Meester’s colouring. Try Benefit Peace Love & Glossiness lip gloss set for that perfect sexy but subtle look!


We’re used to seeing her as Blair Waldorf, wearing headbands in Gossip Girl, but here Meesteris sporting a quick and easy up-do. To get the look that her hairstylist Charles Baker Strahan created,pull back blow-dried locks and pin up with several bobby pins. Finish the look by spraying with hairspray -try Kerastase Double Force hairspray with UV filters and fixing polymers.
