Multi-talented Ellis Faas: a family movie

Some people just have something about them, they radiate confidence and continue to evolve all the time, creating and inspiring people around them in the process and I think Ellis Faas, a well-known make-up artist and creator of Ellis Faas make-up brand, is definitely one of those people. 

Ellis Faas: “As a late teenager, I visited the Tate Gallery in London and was blown away by a Francis Bacon triptych. It made aELLIS_FAAS_VISUAL_September_November_2011_portrait_LOWRES great impression on me because of the use of colour – it was unnerving and stunningly beautiful at the same time. Bacon inspired many experiments I did over the years. I now think it has become something of my own and hasn’t much to do with Bacon any more.”

When I saw a movie made by Faas family-Ellis creating the most incredible make-up  using her brother Thijs’s face as blank canvas, while her daughter Flavia composed the music, I was just blown away by the strong images and beauty of what I saw ( see the link below). I have one word for it-mesmerising!
