Ellis Faas (1962 – 2020)

by | Aug 13, 2020

It is with great sadness that we hear the news that iconic make-up artist and founder of cruelty-free cosmetics brand, Ellis Faas has passed away.

Ellis’ business partner and brother released the following statement following the passing of his sister.

It is with the greatest imaginable sadness that I inform you about the passing of Ellis – our brand founder, my business partner, but above anything else my beloved sister…

I am convinced that Ellis herself would say that her greatest pride and joy in life was her daughter, whom she raised as a single mom. But the world says goodbye to an immensely talented, creative, visionary artist, and to a proud, strong yet vulnerable, and always passionate woman.

Ever since I can remember Ellis had a special eye to view the world around her. With her intelligence and sensitivity, she aimed to inspire also others to pursue their dreams, use their passion, embrace their non-conformity. This not only affected the people around her, but also infused her make-up and photography work with its uniqueness, and it was the basis for the make-up brand she created.

It has always been Ellis’ wish that her ELLIS FAAS brand could and would exist detached from her own persona, and that is exactly what we – our wonderful team and myself – will try to realise. Ellis still had many plans for her brand, and even though it will never be the same without her, we will carry out those plans and thereby pay tribute to Ellis’ legacy.
