Words James Vincent
Few people and even fewer artists have made such an impact on this beauty industry as Ellis Faas. Bold shapes, broad strokes, unexpected color choices, interesting placement and shape and unforgettable color and texture choices were as much a part of her makeup and photographs as was flawless skin. With a passion for pushing the boundaries of beauty and a humility that belies her accomplishments, Ellis was an artist’s artist. The news of her death left many artists, including myself, sharing stories about Ellis’ influence and impact on their art and career.
