Ellis Faas's makeup looks for *DIED* & Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna / Suneet Varma & Jan Taminiau at WILFW

Ladies, you had all read about My meeting with Ellis Faas the iconic celebrity Makeup Artist whose makeup looks have rocked the runways from Milan, Paris and now Delhi and graced the biggest glossy magz in the world.

Here are some images from the show "Dutch Fashion Here & Now India presents *DIED* & Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna / Suneet Varma & Jan Taminiau"!

For Jan Taminiau and Suneet Varma, Ellis decided on something with a strong, chic-tribal statement: having evened out with ELLIS FAAS Skin Veil foundation, Concealer and Compact Powder, she shaped the eyes with navy blue Creamy Eyes E113, varying with using it as a stain as well as a fully covering shade. She then shaded with the antique silver Light E301. The nude lip is Milky Lips L209.

For their collaborative show, *DIED* made graphic designs on the fabric, which Rahul&Rohit then embroidered. So on the faces (evened out with ELLIS FAAS Skin Veil foundation, Concealer and Compact Powder) Ellis also drew black, graphic drawings using the black Creamy Eyes E103. On the lips is nude Milky Lips L209.
 The tribal art you see on the model's face was a result of free hand drawing by Ellis.


For Rahul&Rohit's solo collection, Ellis kept the faces quite simple and fresh, in contrast with the graphic collaborative collection. So she just made an even skin with ELLIS FAAS Skin Veil foundation and Concealer, adding black Eyeliner E501 and a nude Milky Lips L209. As an understated special effect, she put Golden glitter over the right side of the face, adding shine on the edges of the models' faces.

 I sooo love the Model's porcelain smooth skin! wish mine looked the same *and she dreams on*

*DIED*'s solo was the same, but with a special mix of lipstick that is not in the ELLIS FAAS collection. And the face of their first model was completely covered in Gold.

Ellis working her magic on the model.

This is by far my most favorite look created by Ellis for the WLIFW, it looks so fierce and dreamy at the same time! The navy blue Creamy Eyes E113 used for this look is the one Ellis swatched and showed me how the creamy eyes are similar to MAC fluidline in texture. At that point I assumed it could be used only for lining the eyes, but the shaded smokey effect she created using the creamy eyes pen is sensational, I'm itching to whip out my makeup brushes and recreate this look.
